My Book Essential

I haven’t used my hard drive in a while, but I can’t het it to power up. I am not sure what to try next. Can the power port be replaced? Would it be better to take the drive apart and try a new Sata cable?? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Barleead,

You can try the new power adapter for your My Book Essential drive in order to isolate the issue with the device. You can refer the link mentioned below to check for the compatible power adapter of the device.
