My MyBook World Edition (White Light) has stopped working. Even though it’s connected to power and to my home network it does not respond either as a network drive or through the web admin interface. My router does not seem to assign a DHCP address to it or even recognize that it is connected to it.
The white light at the front remains permanently lit at the bottom quarter as if indicating that the device is powering up (?). It does not flash or change.
I am also unable to turn the device off by clicking the power button at the back. I can only turn it off by pulling the power cord out.
I’ve replaced the network cable to no avail. I’ve performed a “soft” reset - without any effect. The only good sign is that I can still hear the drive spinning inside. I think :).
Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with my unit and how to fix it?
