Thread: Time Capsule Completely Dead
10-06-2009, 08:16 AM #1Time Capsule Completely Dead
This morning I woke up to fine my Time Capsule completely dead. It is the 500GB model and a few years old to be sure. The light on the front does not come on and I hear no hard drive noises. Has anyone else seen this before? Or should I just write it off?
Thanks in advance everyone!

Can be as simple as a power supply issue, in which case you can recover the actual disk with the data.
Was the TC used to store your TM ( or any other form of ) backups ?
If that is the case .... it might be worthwhile to take it in for repair depending on how much value you attach to the backups
Have you got another backup somewhere on another disk ?

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

I was reading this topic and the previous topics about the TC death rate.
Apple - Support - Discussions - Apple time capsule suddenly died ...
Mine was overheating and was replaced by Apple. You may want to use a printout as ammunition when you debate the condition of your TC with the store.

I'll just give Apple a call and see what I can get out of them. As it is about two years old, I suspect that won't be much, but I'm sure going to try.
