First of all, thank you all for hard work and for share that with world.
I get a blue ring unit, version 1 hdd, with bad psu and shorted hdd from a friend.
Using tutorials here all is up and running again, but with a lil problem.
The friend try to open the box bad way, and broke, then trow away the pcb with power button and leds.
I kindly ask if anyone can make good pictures (high resolution ones) and share here of that lil pcb, because powering down the unit without telling to software first will go to data corruption, so i will be able to build the pcb and restore power down command by button as was supposed by manufacturer.
Or, using a multimeter, look where on that connector on mainboard is power button short when is pressed.
Thank you .
There are some (blurry) pictures in this guide: http://highlevelbits.free.fr/download/OpenMBWEBlue.pdf
Perhaps somebody on these forums has a fried MBWE Blue with the power PCB intact..
Tnx for answer, i allready see those pictures, but those are way too blurry to folow anything on…
Maybe someone will do 2 (1 per side) high resolution pictures on that little board , still hoping here
Come to think of it, I'm not sure it's worth it to try and reproduce such a relatively complex PCB yourself with all these SMD components. A Mybook Blue Rings isn't worth much of a hassle if you ask me, seeing it's transfer speed is so incredibly slow.
Thank you very much odin1899, is exactly what i search for.
I will try to build only power button circuitry, in order to be able to power down the unit nice, the leds present no importance to me.
After a quick look i manage to get the ideea there : power button line isnt clear on those pictured where exactly go on those pins, but is reported to gnd and keep it high level by a 4,7k resistor who go on 5v line.
Now i have to do a little search about whos the pin who put unit down, is around 12-13 try's hehe.
With those pictures 80% job done, tnx again odin1899, really nice of you to open unit for me.
You're quite welcome, always a pleasure to be able to help someone out. Let me know if you need some snapshots of other parts of the insides or if you'd like me to test something (I do have a multimeter buried in my tool kit somewhere).
