Question about Seagate FreeAgent Go 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

A few more questions.

1. Is there a way to take it apart? I see no screws on it.

2. When it is plugged into a power source, there is this odd ticking noise, as if power is trying to reach it, but failing.

3. The power is transferring through the adapter at about 12.1 volts. It was tested by a FLUKE True RMS Multimeter. Is the adapter the problem?

These cases are normally friction fit or they have little slots for the air to get in. If you put a small flathead screwdriver into these air slots on the side sometimes there are clips in there you can push on that release the two plastic halves from eachother.

If the power source isn't putting out enough power it could be the motor trying to spin up or the reading arms trying to move on the drive. I would not try to use it anymore until you get the drive out. You don't want to do any damage to the drive.

If the adapter is putting out enough juice it could be something in the connection from the adapter to the drive. I would still get the drive out and check it to be on the safe side.

Power turns off and on every few minutes


This model had some odd problems--answers to a few questions might suggest what is wrong

When set is on does brightness come up very slow or is somewhat darker when on?

that might indicate a lamp issue----set will detect if screen not bright enough etc.

With set on is picture normal? (no unusual color in back ground on screen or such? set is prone to light engine failures--the engine communicates with other parts of the set--something not right it shuts down.

My final thought is a power supply problem----this is not a easy set to get apart to service or look for things---for the most part the entire front screen has to be removed to gain access to the boards. Note the lack of many rear screws on the unit.

Check electrical contacts in drill body where battery connects. Check wiring inside the drill, trigger and check also brushes. You do not have to invest 329, you can buy "body only" machine for few bucks and reuse your charger and battery packs. Juraj

My dremel works intermitently. As I move the switch from one speed to another it will momentarlly run. Whats the problem? THANKS


You described intermitten pwer supply, follow this procedure:

1. check your power cord for breaks or kinks, especially where it join the piece or plug
2. if cord is ok, check/replace brushes.

To check/replace brushes on dremel 395 follow this procedure:

1. switch off unit, remove power cord.
2. with flat screwdriver remove gently brush covers, WATCH FOR LITTLE SPRINGS!!!
3. check brushes for wear, springs if connect correctly, if brushes are thinner than 3.2mm (1/8") replace with new ones, this check should be carried regardless after about 50hrs of use, brushes last about 50 to 60hrs in normal use.

In unlikely case that it is switch, this is as well very easy replaceable.

1. switch off unit
2. remove cable from power source
3. remove brushes following previous procedure
4. remove collar from front of the piece
5. remove side screws and gently pry apart halves, label side up
6. replace switch
7. screw pieces back in reverse order
8. replace back brushes.

All parts are easy available, when purchase brushes or switch, be aware that they fit only particular model!

I would recommend clean table with butcher paper on top, torx/hex screwdriver, philips screwdriver, flat screwdriver - these vary from country to country, I cannot provide what exactly tools you will need, you need to check what screws are holding your piece together, little long nose pliers can be helpful as well.

As you pull handpiece apart put your parts in order in whihc you pulled them apart, when you put them back, it will be easy to put them back in reverse order in which them come apart. For changing brushes you need about 5min (assign 15min), for changing switch or faulty power cord you need about 1h (assign 3hrs), assigned time is theoretical, prctically multiply it by 3...

If you have anymore questions, or require more detailed instructions, do not hesitate to follow this thread and leave note.

Leave note how it go, thanx!

Phone jack wiring


Its typical in apartments for the phones to come in through a single source and then fan out to other wire leads to the rest of the phone jacks in the place. However, I think its odd that your 'source 2' has 9 wires. I'd expect 8.
One idea is to take off a phone plate in another room and see if the wire colors on source 2 or 3 match the unknown source wires. If so, then just match the wires that connect to the same plugs in the plates.

RCA L32WD12 32in. HGTV LCD Television


I had the same problem happen this afternoon, so I took it apart, and the source of the problem is the key controller panel (behind the buttons). It's held in place by 2 screws, if you take the case apart, which is literally only 15 or 20 screws, and then loosen the 2 screws holding the key controller panel on, and then use a small screwdriver to space it out from the button caps. Tighten the screws, and put it back together. Just be careful not to let it go too far to the other side, or you'll have a problem with the menu going on and off at random, which is just as annoying.
