Could it be the fuse in the plug for the transformer?

It may just be the Power Transformer that is supplied with the Drive that as stopped working get someone to check it with a Multitester

I have the same HD. I found that the power plug at the back had to be pushed firmly home. Suggest you pull it out and then push it well home.
