SCSI Hard Disc

My Seagate SCSI HD hasn't run up and the tally light is pulsing.
Disappeared off setup, too. Is it toast - or is their anything I can try?
Luckily I only use it for temporary audio files so nothing important on it.
I ran a test on it just the other day and it reported ok. Perhaps
coincidence?

If that fails remove from computer, turn upside down and give it a sharp

Not a 4.2 GB Seagate ST34520N by any chance?

I'll give that a try.

Not sure since it's disappeared off everything. Can't find any paperwork,
either. Know it cost a fortune when bought. ;-)

There should be identification printed on the drive.

Do you have a second identical drive? Just a couple of weeks ago I 
recovered the contents of a Seagate SCSI disc by replacing the circuit 
board with one from an identical drive.

I've looked in the 2004/2005 catalogue (page 674 on), been to a shop and
asked about the product Electrolube, and they had no idea what I was
talking about. (Even Stabilant 22)
Offered me something by Servisol, and something of their own, but nothing
called Electrolube containing Stabilant 22.

Perhaps some kind person could have a butchers at the Maplin catalogue and
point me at the product.

Cheers

Typing 'Electrolube' into the Maplin website search box returns zero
results.

'Servisol' however returns a page of results.

Typing 'Electrolube' into the Google search does return quite a few hits
and may give you a supplier.

Try Farnell - they sell on-line.

It looks as though the name Electrolube is no longer in use.  My can, which
must be a few years old since it has a "Use by 04/2002" sticker on it, says
Electrolube in small print but has the letters SGB in large print.  My
current  CPC catalogue still illustrates SGB contact grease, but the name
Electrolube is not in the entry - but is visible with a magnifying glass.

part no SA00648 for a syringe or SASGB200D for the aerosol.

Can't see it in the Maplin catalogue, but e.g. MainlyTrains
(www.mainlytrains.com) has 'PECO Electrolube' at 3.40 for a pen
dispenser type tube. Try a model rail shop if you have one local.

www.electrolube.co.uk shows they are part of H K Wentworth Limited.

Copyright notice 2004, so it is current.

Click on Distributors on the LHS and you can get a text version of their
distributor list - which includes RS, CPC, Farnell, but not Maplin.

Thank you Ray,
Unfortunately Farnell, RS etc.,  have quite large minimum orders values,
and no shop chain.

I've been to www.electrolube.co.uk, and done the Google bit in the past,
but still without.

Try CPC who are the retail division of Farnell: http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/home/homepage.jsp
A search on 'contact lubricant' gives 2 results - both Elecrolube :-)

CPC don't have a minimum order as such -  but you only get free carriage if
you spend 30 Quid.  Orders up to 14.99 have to pay 4.99  P&P.

My last order from RS was under 10 quid in value - yes, again I had to pay
for P&P.

Looks like you should get some whilst they still have 'some in stock',
judging by comments in this thread.

Not sure that Electrolube contains Stabilant 22, they were quite
different products from different sources.

It looks like I should check out the links on that page of mine and
update, using Ray Dawsons pointer. Thanks Ray.

Good prompt Chris, it set me thinking.
Here, we have a very good train, boat, plane, car model shop, I phoned
them and they keep Electrolube pens in stock.

That is why I mention such sources on my web site as that is where I
purchased my first Elecrolube pen, although it had a PECO number then.
