Buffalo Drivestation not turning on?
« on: May 27, 2012, 06:24:57 pm »

Hello.

 

All of a sudden, my external HDD doesn't turn on when plugged in, no light or anything. I have all my data and things stored on it, and it doens't seem accessible. I've tryied plugging it into different sockets too.

 

It turns on with a green light, after 3 seconds it turns off.

If it powers off after 3 seconds then it is not getting any power via USB, use a different USB cable and try on a different PC and see if it makes any difference.

PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.
