MRS 1266 NOT POWERING UP.

Post by rabbm » Sun Oct 16, 2016 12:08 pm

I have this evening tried to switch on my MRS1266 for the first time in a few weeks and its dead. No error messages. Just Dead.

Is there a way to get the projects from the HDD?

Thanks Guys.

Remove the hard drive from the MRS-1266.

If you have a desktop computer and it only has one hard drive the computer MAY have the ribbon cable and power connections for a second hard drive. You MAY have to apply a jumper that tells the computer this is the second drive but most of the time you don't.

If you don't have a desktop computer or you don't want to open your computer you will need to purchase an external USB hard drive enclosure that fits the removed hard drive. Hard drives can be two different widths, 3.5" & 2.5"; the MRS-1266 hard drive width is likely 3.5". Older hard drives may require more power than the usb port can provide so you want an external enclosure with a power adaptor or one that has two usb connectors, one for communication and power and a second for additional power.

Either way your computer should recognize the secondary or external hard drive and allw you access to the files.
