Stps wrkng; no flshng lghts; rstrts rndmly on its own; help!
I have the 2 TB Time Capsule A1409. Worked perfectly for about a year and a half (like everyone else has experienced). When mine stops working, it simply shuts down... it does not go from a green light to flashing yellow. Instead, it simply powers down and will not restart under any condition. I can hear the fan restart when I plug it in; I can feel the heat generated from use, but it is not recognized as working and there's no amber or green lights at all....while it gives me secondary indications that it's working (heat / fan re-starting) it is clearly down for the count., I thought it could be an overheating issue and have been careful to keep it elevated and cool...I've opened and inspected and see no visible cord damage or anything else mentioned here. No matter what I do, it will not restart to the level of providing an internet signal or any backup / restore function. I'll use an older wifi device (no backup capabilities) to tide me over but here's the kicker...I'll plug the Time Capsule in a few days, or a week, later, and it restarts as if nothing has occurred. On / around the days it fails, there's nothing I can do, but when it makes up its mind to work...typically a few days must pass for this, it re-starts. I assume this is not an "over heat" issue, but something more serious. Thoughts anybody? Thanks!
Is this a good question?
