Hi,
I've got an 810 that does not respond to anything. The power light
comes on, and thats it. All I have are programming books, are
there any hardware books that would help me troubleshoot this? Are
there any online sites that would?


Thanks,
Brian

If you have another SIO cable, try changing that out first.

The drive should at least do a seek when it powers up (I think).

I'm fairly sure the 810 service manual has been scanned and uploaded but I can't remember what site it's on.
