LaCie D2 DVD firewire drive no power?
No power to DVD firewire drive, trying to repair...
I know it's worth very little but I wasn't happy just throwing this DVD drive in the bin, so I thought I would have a go at repairing it and then give it away.
I'm not getting any apparent power to the drive, the switch doesn't light up/turn on and the eject button doesn't work. I've tried a different power adaptor.
I have an older working external CD DRIVE from Lacie which has the same enclosure, it's easy to take apart so I swapped the identical little circuit board with the black four pin power socket from that over to the DVD drive, I also tried swopping the wire that goes from the switch to this component as they were also identical.
However I'm still not getting any power. Does anyone have any idea what the faulty component might be based on this? Is it something that's swappable with the CD drive? or shall I just chuck it.
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
