4TB MyBook won't power up. Light flashes on, then nothing

As stated in topic, plugged in my 4tb MyBook external drive and the power LED flashed on very briefly, probably not even half a second, then nothing. Tried it with multiple power cords in multiple outlets to same conclusion.

It goes without saying I’m not keen to lose nearly full 4TB worth of data, so I’m open to suggestions. Power board issue? If so, what’s the best way to solve the problem? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi gitwer,

It seems like the drive has gone bad and you should replace the drive if it is under warranty period. Please refer to the link given below in order to know how to apply for the RMA.

Also, if you want to recover the data then you should contact the data recovery company. Please refer to the link given below in order to contact recommended 3rd party data recovery company.
