Question about Generic Memory AL TECH MG35 MEDIAGATE PORTABLE 3.5 INCH HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE NETWORK MULTIMEDIA STREAMING/DIVX PLAY...

Al Tech Mediagate MG350D

I just got this unit two days ago. First night it booted ok but last night I just got the blue light flashing. Apparently this has something to do with corrupt firmware. Any ideas how one can fix this, reload the firmware or whatever one can do.I suppose I'll have to send the unit back to get fixed or replaced, but what if the same happens in the future? It seems a lot of people experienced this problem with this unit. Any ideas or help will be appreciated. I read one comment which says one can reload the firmware using some serial connection which I can see in the box.

    hi having same problem on mg35 which is 2 yrs old
    wkd perfectly till now Just starts up with blue light flashing and no output to tv

    was told by other mg35 owner that taking power unit out of wall socket and then out of unit wait 30 min and plug it all back in fixes his when same happens but did not work for mine. Have not recently updated or done anything else to unit. Tried it with and without harddrive attatched but no difference.

    feel lost without a vital piece of equipment
    will have to buy a newone if no fix can be made.

    I recently added a network drive and tried the MG-35 with no Hard Drive. All I get is blue LED flash. With HD back in boots fine. Repeated couple of times always the same. Firmware 1.4.7.

    I am experiencing the same problems with the blue ring flashing however nothing shows on the tele. Luckily mine is only 6 months old so hopefully still covered under warrranty. Will try and press TV/Video buttons but tried everything else and nothing has worked. I love this piece of equipment and miss not having it work!

Keep hitting the TV video button, it's probably just booted in the wrong video mode.

Might need to hit it a dozen or so times until it comes back on the screen

No blue light after boot


Yes, I've seen the ballast bad after a lamp shorts out. It takes out a 1K resistor out in ballast. If original lamp blew up this could be your issue

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing


Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.

Flasing red light


The flashing red indicates that either the fileter cover or the lamp cover is not installed correctly. If both are installed properly and secured, the unit will require service.

Part 2 -Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee


Blinking light often means pump is not delivering water. Possible blockage from corrosion. Can also mean a valve blocked.
Do you hear the pump run?
