  1. Usually it is the power adapter that fails external HDD's. You may have to tear it apart removed the HDD and place it in another enclosure. If its a 3.5cm hdd then put in in a computer and see that is still runs.
  2. dormantreign is spot on. Pull it out and either get a new enclosure, or run it directly in the computer.
