    I had the same problem with my maxtor 750GB barracuda HDD. I were able to replace the burned out component on the HDD`s circuitboard.It took a long time of browsing on the web, and reseach, but the component was clearly burned, and took 2 min to replace.

Hi,

If you have used the wrong power supply, the cicuis might be shorted.

If is posible they will solder the bolder & make it work.

I dont recommend it as it will give problems again.

Or

Its just the time to get rid of that.

Be careful in th future.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Looking for power supply maxtor 3200


You can use any 12 volt power supply for these external drives from any electronics store but you need to make sure they are a 2 amp rating anything under that will burn out your power supply.
You will need to make sure the centre is the + if the supply comes with a selection of plugs.

Hope this helps

What should the input power supply be


The input is USA 110 - 120 Volts AC, Europe, 230 - 250 V AC.

A lot of adapters will work on anything from 90 V AC to 250 V AC, it is clearly indicated on the actual unit itself, if you look. If it is, it can be used anywhere.

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

No power in my Maxtor 3200 external HD


Maxtor hard drives have sometimes have problems. When you say it didn't work, can you here the drive spinning? Do you feel a G effect if up pick up the drive? Are any lights on? If all these are no then the unit is dead. Now all may not be lost. This drive may be able to be slaved to another and then accessed to remove your data. Do you have the capability of removing the drive from the case and slaving it to another CPU? If not then the unit needs to see a reputable repair person.
