Question about Maxtor OneTouch II Hard Drive
Will not communicate w/ laptop. Maybe a power surge caused this. Any reset capablilities?
Danw, i'd like to ask more about this, since I seem to have something similar on my maxtor onetouch 3 - seems to have happened during a storm, so I think a power surge killed the power supply, and I don't think there was any actual disk/plate failure. 1. power on - the light just flickers for a while, then goes out. 2. the light on the power adapter is on, indicating that it works, but when I turn on the drive, the light on the adapter flickers, too. does this sound like the symptoms you were seeing? I don't want to take any chances with the amount of data I have on this 160GB drive... Thanks, Geoff

No resets anywhere, Try it on a diff computer. Possible harddrive failure. Could be power supply problem.

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV.
The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.
If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.
