My Book won't power up
My MyBook 3T Drive, less than 1 yr old, only used for Time Machine backups, refuses to power up now. Have no idea why; I haven't even backedup that many times so it's got plenty of space.
I've tried different outlets, also subbed in the power cable from my older MyBook Studio, all to no avail! This is especially maddening since I have many externals, one from 2006 even, that I no longer use but still powers up! makes me think newer is less reliable - !! This really blows!
so if I tear it down, what am I looking for?
is there a way to access it w/o a power source?
fyi, it's barely 1 yr old - bought it in Aug 2016
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Wait, don't tear it down, it could still be under warranty...

yeah but that means replacement, right? there are backups on there, I don't want to give away all my data carte blanche -

anyway, by tear it down I mostly meant to access the drive via a computer rather than direct power

I had this problem, look carefully at the middle band above the USB sockets, there's a hidden reset button. With power cable connected, press and hold this thin button and hey presto all fixed.

That was it! The "reset" button is, I believe, the "power on/off" button. Nice of them to hide it like that. Geez.
