    Hey, I have a WD 500GB, the converter has a green light that works, but starts blinking as soon as I plug it to the unit. Then the circle light starts blinking and doesn't turn on, nor I see it in the computer. I think I need to open the HD and connect to the computer directly to check, although I'm not sure how to do that...

    thanks

The only blue light that i know blinks is the Kmart blue light special .. we need model of things you're working with to properly diagnose.
is it external drive ? with a blue light blinking ? is it connected in usb ? sounds like if its external drive with blinking light could be bad hard disk or bad controller card inside that translates ide to usb.

First of all thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.
Please confirm if the brand and model number above is correct.
Blinking of the the LED (yellow and blue) at the front panel indicating that the lamp door cover is not seated properly. This cover will engaged to a micro switch giving the signal to the processor, once it is in open position, the unit will not power up and will experienced that kind of blinking error code. Go back to the lamp door cover and ensure that it is properly seat-in.
3D, 2D, red/green/blue ghost on the picture and letters means that the convergence circuitry gone bad. Symptoms is not connected to the light engine. The faulty parts is the convergence chips(IC). This chips are mounted on the large aluminum heat sink and starts with STKXXXX-XX (X means number). The most common STK chips used on Projection TV's is the STK392-110. You have to replaced them both on the board to resolve the issue(red ghosting). It is necessary also to check the resistance value of the resistors around its circuitry using the multimeter. For more info how to repair a convergence problem, watch the video below.

Sounds like your injectors aren't opening if it holds that pressure. Get a "noid light" at parts store that fits your injector harness connection (just a few bucks). Just pull connector off injector and plug in noid light. When you crank engine, the light should blink rapidly. Try all of them, or at least one on each bank (side).
If light doesn't blink, then check your injector electrical circuit. Power to them is fed through your ignition switch, and the ecm grounds that particular injector at proper time to make injector work.

I hope this helps
