Repair: Iomega Minimax External HDD disassembly

Iomega Minimax External HDD disassembly

  • Problem: No power. Blue light on the front flickers once when powered up
  • Solution: Re soldered the DC socket. Re flowed the chips and performed a continuity test on the components.
  • Fixed? No. I suspect one of the Chips have died but without an Oscilloscope to test the chips I am unable to repair.








  1. Hello, do you also have a picture from the white top out of the silver casing? I need to see how this is been hold together. With 2 or more clips.

    • I don’t, sorry. I did this quite a while back. It is quite easy to take apart though. Let me know how you get on.
