Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Solid green light.

Bought the drive, reformatted it for my mac - worked fine.
Then, suddenly, nothing. The light, when inactive was dim, stayed bright (is if drive were in use). After a few days, the problem fixed itself.
Now, the problem is back. I'm looking for a way to fix it, so I can remove my files from the drive and replace it with a better, more reliable model.
The Drive shows up in system profile.
Any suggestions?

Disk Warrior.  I had a similar problem and it worked like voodoo.  Plus, a) you can download it direct from the company and b) if it can't fix it it won't screw it up any further.

Green power light comes on goes off then on again stays solid, moniter says no signal, mouse lights up, and three red lights on key board flash then nothing why?


If the monitor power light is on or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

Help please - last time I tried to use printer, 'on' light stayed solid green and nothing would work, however after 45mins approx it suddenly returned to normal and printed fine. Now sx115 is...


Hello,

This could be due to various reasons.

1. Make sure that printer is connected directly to a wall outlet and not to any surge protector.

2.We can perform a cold reset or restore the printer to factory defaults. If the printer is connected to a network then make sure that we make a note of the network settings since the settings will not be the same after performing the reset.

Spinning, then nothing


hate to have bad news, but it's sounding like the drive may have gone bad...the restarts prior were warnings that it was on the way out... I would make sure you've got another drive, hook them both up and if you power up the suspect drive, you may get lucky enough to boot it up for a short while and maybe long enough to transfer some files to the newer drive.... good luck... Also, be sure that all your computer and periferals are connected to power via a power surge protection device... I've lost a few tv's and printers becuase I was too lazy or in too big a hurry...then a voltage spike trashed my stuff... Hope this helps..

QPS-525 usb CDRW - quit working. Pwr Supply OK.


Check to see which LED is blinking, the one on the cdrw or the one just below it showing theres power to the enclosure? If theres proper power to the enclosure the green led light below the cdrw should stay solid green. If you have a blinking led light on the cdrw itself, you may wish to disassemble the enclosure and ensure all the short wire leads to the converters pcb are still properly connected and that theres nothing loose. Make sure the IDE cable is properly seated as well as the molex power connector.

A blinking led on the cdrw may signify a problem with the drive itself, since it should not be blinking unless its being accessed by the computer. You could also try reloading the drivers for it whether youre running it on a mac or windows machine. Perhaps change the usb port youre connecting too as well. Before sending the enclosure to the trash, try another cdrom drive connected inside of it. That should be the definitive test to solve whether its the fault of the enclosure or burner itself. Hope these troubleshooting tips help.

2Wire 473 router problem


Take the modem and plug it into a GFCI outlet. You can find one in the bathroom or the kitchen.

If the power light comes on solid green and the dsl comes on red then the modem is good. Was it plugged into a power strip by the computer? If so, plug it straight into a wall outlet.

If the power light comes on solid red then the modem has hardware failure. I would contact your ISP and have them replace it if it is still underwarranty.

My adapter is registered as inactive, but it is plugged in.


Go to Start -> Control panel -> Network connections. Right click on your wireless device and click enable. It should work after that.
