HT201514 Time capsul stopped working and now cannot be mounted

After hourly backups for the last month (since I bought Time Capsul), Time Machine just stopped.  Initially, the message in Time Machine was "backup delayed".  I clicked on "backup now" and that message disappeared -- so did Time Capsul.  Now Airport Utility no longer "sees" Time Capsul.
-- Time Capsul is the 3TB model, purchased a little more than one month ago.
-- I am backing up roughly 700 GB of data
-- Both My iMac and my Macbook Pro run on OS X 10.7.5
My iMac is connected to Time Capsul by Ethernet cable.
My Macbook Pro is connected wirelessly
Neither the iMac nor the Macbook Pro can "see" the Time Capsul, or find it in Airport Utility.  Both my iMac and my Macbook Pro have been backing up flawlessly for more than a month.  The backup stopped yesterday with the message "backup delayed", as previously stated.
Is there an explanation and a fix for this problem?  That's a pretty short life span for a month old $500.00 purchase.

My Mac book Pro does, in fact, see Time Capsule and is able to do a backup via wireless connection.
My Internet connection works fine -- Time Capsule light is green.
As to your question of:  "Did you upgrade to 10.7.5 after the first faulty  update was released?", I can't answer that question.  I have no memory of a notification of a faulty update.  I do, however, have the build 11G63 installed.
Would it be beneficial to do a factory reset?
Don't you just love it when nothing makes sense.. !!
Yes, do a factory reset of the TC..
Using the airport utility, on whichever computer can connect.. give the TC SMB names for everything.. TC network name, wireless names, and hard disk name.. that means, short, no spaces, pure alphanumeric.
In Lion use the 5.6 utility.

The v6 airport is a toy.. plastic hammer.. suitable for toyland networks.
You might need to reset the TM in the computers..

Are you using the TC as router or in bridge? What broadband do you have?
Check for instance the ethernet is working from the connectivity led on the ethernet port of the TC.. it will show green.

  • My time capsule was working and then I added another Macbook pro. TC stopped appearing in Airport Utilities. I have tried resetting TC, I have turned if off and held reset button with pen for 10 secs. I just cannot work out what else to do?

    My time capsule was working and then I added another Macbook pro. TC stopped appearing in Airport Utilities. I have tried resetting TC, I have turned if off and held reset button with pen for >10 secs. I just cannot work out what else to do? I have turned router off and on. Amber light is flashing.

    The ethernet says self assigned IP 169.254.67.6
    Then the ethernet is not getting an IP from the TC.. there is no connection.
    I am not sure where you mean when you say the green LED should be on. Do you mean the TC?
    Thanks
    In order to help troubleshoot ethernet connections all routers use connectivity leds.. even APPLE.. it has one big LED on the front.. and 4 tiny leds beside each ethernet port. That light has to come on for ethernet to be active.. if you plug an ethernet cable into the port and the light doesn't come on.. then there is no connection.. either the other end isn't plugged in.. or the cable is bad.. or the ethernet port is bad.. something is wrong.
    To get access to the TC you need this led to be green.. is it?
    If it is green and the WAN is also green.. then I want you to unplug the WAN connection.. the blue wire in the picture.. the port slightly separated from the 3 LAN port.. computer plugged just into LAN port.. no airport turned on.. and press the reset again for 10sec until front led flashes rapidly.. then try and bring up the airport utility again.. assuming the ethernet led is green.
    How old and what model is the TC?
    The A number from the rubber mat will tell us the model.

  • My time capsule stopped working. amber light comes on for a few seconds then turns off.

    my time capsule stopped working. When I try to power it up the amber light comes on for about 10 seconds and then turns off. That's as far as it gets. Any ideas on how to solve this problem.

    Kazandjaz, Welcome to the fourm!  There is a 99.5% chance that your problem is caused by a failed internal power supply unit (PSU)!  If you have operated it for about 18 months or so, that is the cause.  Take it to your nearest Apple dealer and ask them to check it out.

    Try this  - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.) No data/files will be erased. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1430

  • My Time Capsule stopped working suddenly. The led won't lit up even if I do a hard reset.

    Suddenly I noticed that my Time Capsule stopped working. The led doesn't light up any more and there's no noticeable activity in it.
    Is it possible to recover my backups?

    Dead TC power supply syndrome is standard on all Gen1 and Gen2 TC.
    It has plenty of info on the web.
    https://sites.google.com/site/lapastenague/a-deconstruction-of-routers-and-modem s/apple-time-capsule-repair
    As far as HD is concerned it will mostly be ok. Either fix or remove the TC hard drive and use in USB box, as mentioned.
    If it is Gen3 there is a different problem.
    Tell us the actual model number from the rubber base.

    I thought that, but I put the sim card in another device that is not Apple and works. Definitely the sim card work, but no longer in my iPhone 5 or maybe in any other Apple device, i dont know why!! But i gonna get a replacement to see what happen

    That is very bad.. how old is it??
    The Gen4 TC can die this way.. it is not usual but it happens.
    Leave it for several hours to cool off. Do a factory reset immediately when you try to restart it.
    The Factory Reset.
    Power down the TC.
    Hold in reset. and keep holding it in. Be Gentle! It is a tiny surface mount switch with a plastic lever.. Attempting to push it out the other side of the TC will not make the switch turn on better.
    (I fix TC and have several reset levers bent over and jammed or broken off).
    Power on the TC.. remember with the reset held in.. this needs three arms.. a friend or power switch you can get to with your feet..
    Keep holding in reset for about 10sec until the front LED flashes rapidly.
    Release reset and wait .. the boot will be slow as it deletes previous setting.. only from router side and pulls out the factory defaults. No files are deleted on the hard disk.. but the name of the TC may change.
    Tell me exactly what the LEDs do throughout this process.
    Both the main one at the front and the LED on the ethernet ports which should all flash during bootup.
    If it is less than a year.. of course Apple will replace under warranty.. 2 years in some places.. Europe .. places with stronger consumer laws. If you have applecare on a computer it should still cover the TC.
    I kind of doubt you are going to get this going again... but we can try.

  • Time Capsule Stopped Working Without Warning

    I purchased my iMac & Time Capsule (802.11n) back in 2006. Last Wednesday (17 Mar 2010) evening, and without any type of warning, the capsule stopped working. The little green light went out and I have not been able to get it running since. My DSL connection runs through the capsule to the computer. Thus, I have not been able to go online. I'm a family history researcher and I need my Mac for email, research, and family websites. I might also add that I'm NOT a computer nerd; I'm just an older lady with basic computer knowledge, and I need it to work.
    I've had to dust off my old unreliable windows based pc, set it all up again, download updates to the Ya-Ya, set up another email addy ([email protected]) - just to be able to get online to find out what I can or should do with this problem.
    Can anyone help me please?
    Thanks! TJ

    I also had a TC fail. However, I did the mod with the fan to keep it cool (http://sites.google.com/site/lapastenague/a-deconstruction-of-routers-and-modems /apple-time-capsule-repair/apple-time-capsule-fan-mod), and then it failed a month later.
    I changed the capacitors on the powersupply board of the TC with instructions from: http://sites.google.com/site/lapastenague/a-deconstruction-of-routers-and-modems /apple-time-capsule-repair/apple-time-capsule-repair-type2
    Now it is back up and running, will see how long it lasts.
    BTW I went to MacMall in Santa Monica, CA and I was told since I did the fan mod, I lost any chance at a warranty repair/exchange.
    My advice: try and get a new one from Apple before you do anything, and do not do the fan mod, it does not completely prevent the failure.... and then one is out of luck with regards to Applecare. Apparently, you can attach the TC to any Applecare/warranty that you have for an Apple CPU. So, if you are under warranty with any CPU, the age of the TC is not an issue (according to my readings).
    Good luck....

  • ITunes stopped working and now all of my apps for my iPhone and half of my music is gone. How do I get it all back?

    I've recently upgraded to an iPhone 5, I had just restored my old iPhone 4 to its original settings while listening to my music. When that was finished I plugged my new phone in and I had an error message pop up saying "iTunes has stopped working" and had to close it. When I reopened iTunes all of my apps for my phone were gone along with half of my music library. The only music I have left are the albums I have downloaded the rest is gone. I closed and reopened iTunes several times and got the same message each time.
    I have music and apps on the phone which will not transfer back to iTunes. All iTunes does is ask if I wan't to delete the music on my phone and sync with the library........ silly question really as half of the music in the library is gone!
    I have been using iTunes for many years now and this is the first time I have seen an error such as this. Can anyone tell me how to restore my library to the same as it was? I have fixed the "iTunes has stopped working" issue and would like my music and apps back.

  • I keep getting the message "a problem has caused itunes to stop working" and I cannot download my podcasts or sync all of my content

    Whenever I open Itunes and try to get my latest podcasts on my Windows 7 computer, Itunes stops working I get a message like" Itunes has stopped working and Windows is checking on the problem for you". I cannot download all my content in one sitting and sync my computer to my 4th gen Ipod. I reinstalled Itunes and selected repair but am still getting the same message.

    Many thanks for the thorough information, karmad.
    Fault Module Name: iTunes.dll
    That in particular, in conjunction with the other symptoms you've described, has me wondering about user-account-specific troubles.
    I'd try checking first to see if the errors are user-account-specific or systemwide, as per:
    [iTunes for Windows Vista or Windows 7: Troubleshooting unexpected quits, freezes, or launch issues|http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1717]
    ... and if it does turn out to be a user-account-specific, error, I'd try steadily working through the troubleshooting possibilities in the user-specific troubleshooting section of that document.

  • Wireless connection between D-Link WiFi router and Time capsule stopped working

    We have an ISP provided D-Link wireless router (DIR-615) to which we wirelessly connected our 2Tb Time Capsule for back up and to connect a USB printer to out network. This worked perfectly for 3 1/2 years, until about a month ago, when the time capsule suddenly decided to go "off line". ie we could no longer access it or the printer via our wireless network. We had changed nothing - just one day it stopped working.
    We tried to get it back online with no success. As the 2Tb Time Capsule was almost 7 years old and had had some HDD issues in the passed, we figured it had got old and died and that it was time to replace it; so we bought a new 3Tb Time Capsule, thinking this would get everything back to normal.
    However much as we tried, we were also unable to get the new 3Tb Time Capsule to connect wirelessly to the D-Link wireless router. The Airport Utility did not show the D-Link wireless router or its wireless network, although we were (and are) able to see it in Systems Preferences>Networks from all our multiple devises. This in itself seemed odd. No matter what we tried, the Airport Utility would not find the D-Link wireless router and hence we could not add the 3Tb Time Capsule to the existing wireless network.
    At the end of the day we got fed up with trying to add the 3Tb Time Capsule to the D-Link wireless network, and connected it via a LAN cable to the D-Link router instead. We then set it up as its own network. Worked gerat. Having done that we thought maybe the old 2Tb Time Capsule might not have been the problem after all, so we tried extending our new 3Tb Time Capsule wireless network using the 2Tb Time Capsule wirelessly. This worked perfectly! And we are now almost back to what we wanted.
    So although we have a work around, this means now have 2 separate wireless networks as opposed to the original single wireless network where everything talked to everything else.
    Can anyone shed any light on any of the following:-
    1. Why the original wireless network connection between the D-Link router and the 2Tb Time Capsule just stopped working? Was there some software change from Apple that "decided" D-Link wireless routers were no longer secure; and therefore the TCs could no longer connect to them?
    2. Why it was not possible to extend the existing D-Link wireless network using the the new 3Tb Time Capsule?
    3. Is there is anyway that we can get back to a single wireless network based around the D-Link wireless router as the primary router connecting to the modem, where the 2 Time Capsules connect as "wireless satellite base stations"?

    1. Why the original wireless network connection between the D-Link router and the 2Tb Time Capsule just stopped working? Was there some software change from Apple that "decided" D-Link wireless routers were no longer secure; and therefore the TCs could no longer connect to them?
    A firmware update to the TC came along and you agreed to it without perhaps even noticing.. it then smashed your setup because Apple do not recommend the setup you were using and it is very poor.
    2. Why it was not possible to extend the existing D-Link wireless network using the the new 3Tb Time Capsule?
    Because it is such a poor setup that Apple have taken away your ability to choose it unless you know exactly what you are doing.
    3. Is there is anyway that we can get back to a single wireless network based around the D-Link wireless router as the primary router connecting to the modem, where the 2 Time Capsules connect as "wireless satellite base stations"?
    Yes, this I can help you with.
    I have several ways around the problem.. but the first one is.. why use the DIR-615 at all.. it is not a modem.. it is a very ordinary bottom end, poor single band slow wireless router.
    Why don't you simply remove the DIR-615 from the network completely.. plug whatever it is the ISP supplies you.. an ethernet connection from whatever that modem is you mentioned into the WAN port of the Time Capsule. And use the TC in some router mode.. same as the DIR-615 was setup.. dhcp or pppoe or whatever.. I doubt the TC cannot match it.
    If you have issues please post a few screenshots from the DIR-615 to show how it is setup from the WAN side.. and as long as you are given the username and password or whatever the ISP uses to authenticate then chuck out the DIR-615.
    Tell me if that is a goer.. if not we can work out a few other methods..
    eg. Simply turn off the wireless in the DIR-615. It is poor cf the TC and there is no need for it.. with the TC in bridge only use the TC for wireless as well as wireless extend with your old TC.
    Or setup roaming network where everything uses the same SSID.
    Then you will have one wireless network. And it won't matter what as long as it connects.. although IMHO this is not right as the TC is such a superior router now you are wasting your new TC.

  • Why has my time capsule stopped working ,now that apple have upgraded me to yosemite

    I Had time machine capsule working good then i tunes upgraded me to mavericks then the time machine has never worked since,its now been upgraded to yosemite and its the same ,it backs up all the time,but when i go to enter it, all i get is a blank shreen, i have spent thousands with apple products, but this is a verry big customer let down .i have 2 imacs 2 time capsules and 3 airport extreams
    can anybody help    *****.*************@********.com
    <Edited by Host>

    You cannot post emails in the text.. you can have it open in your profile.
    Ring Apple if you have loads of stuff and have current apple care and they will try and sort you.
    Yes.. big changes were made at Mavericks.
    You need to factory reset the TC and start again.. Perhaps even wipe it and start over.
    I recommend all very short names.. do not follow the apple recommended names in the wizard.
    Use 2-20 characters, no spaces and pure alphanumeric. Passwords the same but 8-20 characters. mixed case and numbers.
    If you still cannot reach the TC tell us how you are connecting.. wireless or ethernet and how the TC is connected to the network and which model it is.
