The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

Have vizio vp50 part#1014350022 went to turn it on and nothing no lite sound or anything.Tried the reset nothing any ideas. thank you


The first thing to check is if your power outlets have surge protector breakers. Try plugging in another simple appliance like a lamp into the outlet and make sure the outlet has power.
If the outlet is fine try plugging in the TV and listening very carefully from the back of the TV for a subtle click noise. The power supply has a mechanical relay that switches when the TV receives power. If you can not hear the click and there are no stand by or power lights illuminated then you likely have a power supply problem. This could range from a blown fuse to a bad capacitor up to a burnt out power regulator. Anything more serious than those problems may warrant simply replacing the whole power supply. Depending on your TV that board could cost anywhere from $50-$175. The power supply can be tested using a multimeter to determine if it is the source of the problem but this should not be attempted unless you have some electroics repair training and are aware of the dangers involved in working on high voltage electronics.

Power not coming on


Power does not come on for the following reason, THE POWER SUPPLY is bad. Unplug the power cord, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and hit the power button. If you see no lights, hear no fans running, don't hear the disk drive running, don't hear the cd drive click once and don't see the light on the cd drive come on for a second or two while it clicks, then you are getting no power and need to replace the power supply.

My left turn signals don't work.you can hear the clicker working normal and the courning lite come on. If you leave the signal switch on the turn lite will flash once in a while and also the lite on...


You most likely have a bad bulb, if the front bulb goes the rear wont work and vise versa both bulbs must be good to complete the cirrcut. Even though you have no lights you should still hear the flasher relay. Bulbs are cheap just replace both and you'll be good to go. Good luck

I had rear brakes replace. now the brake lites don't work. does that have anything to do with it.


hi, having the brakes changed have nothing to do with the brakes lites. check underneath of the dash by the upper side of the brake pedal arm .there its a switch with a pin which every time you step on the brakes that pin goes in and out when you release the brakes .that make the lites go off and on.it cost only couple of bucks get it changed.if till not working check the brake wiring. check for power source or loose ground.

Main main breaker keeps popping after I put in a pond lite and run the electric dryer. Could this be a ground problem or what else it just started


How about disconnecting your pond lite, and then trying your dryer? Usually pond lights are wired with some sort of ground fault protection. And this will trip immediately if there's another source...especially a heating source with a motor. Its the motor that senses the gfi, and trips it. I'd disconnect the pond light from the dryer, and then try it. If it works fine, then get another power source (not linked to the dryer) to run the pond light and see how it works. I believe when you separate their power sources, you should be fine. Try this, and then let me know if you have success, or need some more guidance. But I'm most sure this is it. Good Luck, and I hope this works for you. - Jim

Electronic ignition tries to lite, clicks 5 times, then goes POOF


Gas burners go "poof" when they have too much gas in the area upon lighting. This is normally due to the ignition source not being close enough to the initial source of gas. This is normaally corrected by ensure the main burner is clean so that it distributes the gas correctly and having the ignition source at proper strength and location. I would have to have good schematics of your heater to be more specific. I hope this helps.
