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.

    Not sure what other tests they could run for me. I've pretty much run all the tests I can using Drive Genius and Tech Tool Pro 5. Is there anything they use that I don't know about??

    Sorry genius.....but if the Recovery disk shows up that means the disk cable isn't bad.  Could be he did have a screwed up HDD and when he put the NEW HDD in (after putting the OS on it via USB) the computer didn't reconize it and therefore didn't boot the OS.  Just maybe right genius?  Don't rush to criticize someone's recommendations until you realize other possibilities.  (I did say "if it does")

  • Time Machine couldn't complete the backup to "Time Capsule. The backup disk image /Volumes/Data/MacBook Pro.sparsebundle could not be created (error 60)"

    We are Mountain Lion using Time Machine to backup to Time Capsule. When the backup tries to run, an error appears after a couple of minutes saying "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer." Then an error shows up saying "Time Machine couldn't complete the backup to "Time Capsule.The backup disk image /Volumes/Data/MacBook Pro.sparsebundle could not be created (error 60)"
    I low level reformatted the Time Capsule and that didn't fix it. I then tried using Time Machine on another computer to back up to that same Time Capsule and it worked- so I'm doubting it's the Time Capsule.
    I've noticed that when Time Machine runs, that a  folder called Data  at /Volumes/ appears while Time Machine is trying to back up. I think it's making the sparsebundle to transfer to the Time Capsule.
    However, after a couple of minutes- it comes back saying that the disk is unreadable.
    I think it's something wrong with either creating the sparsebundle or opening the disk image that seems to be a part of the Time Machine backup process on the local drive. 
    I am able to create a disk image with Disk Utilitiy without any problem on that system. I've repaired the disk and disk permissions with Disk Utility and replaced the directory with Disk Warrior. I've trashed what preference files I could find and restarted. I've completely removed the backup destination from the computer and added it back again.
    Help!
    Thanks,
    Neil

    Yes, exactly.  It makes one sparse bundle per Mac.
    It's possible the TC's disk is too full for a new sparse bundle, or there may be some other problem.
    Via the Finder, locate the existing sparse bundle (see the pink box in Time Machine - Frequently Asked Question #17 if you're not sure how to do that).  See how large it is (plus how large anything else that may be there).  If the total is very near the size of the TC, that may be the problem.
    If not, a clue may be lurking in your logs.  Use the widget in #A1 of Time Machine - Troubleshooting to display the backup messages from your logs.  Locate the backup in question (probably the first one displayed), then copy and post all the messages here.

  • HT1751 I cannot seem to get through this process.  I believe I have copied the library from my old to the external drive, and then to my newer MacBook Pro; but the result is the same number of songs that were originally transferred via the transfer proces

    I've tried for a few days to figure out why I cannot be sure that my iTunes back-up to an external drive has "worked" or not.  I finally decided to try to transfer the content from the external drive to my newer MacBook Pro.  I already knew that the number of songs on the newer laptop were fewer than what are on my older one.  (I basically only use my older MacBook Pro now for iTunes.)  But today, still had not luck.  There is still a difference of over 100 songs appearing on the iTunes of the newer laptop than are on the older one. 
    I'm pretty sure that I just don't undertand the Apple article very well:  "ITunes: back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive."
    This would not be so frustrating for me did I not have over 3000 songs, imported from CDs that I myself own, in my old laptop.  The thought of redoing this import is, well, tiring to say the least. 

    Go through the below forum with similar issue and follow the process mentioned by "Macjack" in the beginning.

  • Time Capsule won't back up new HD - freezes MacBook Pro

    Last week I replaced my 110 GB HD with a 640 GB WD HD, and then used Migration assistant from the old drive to transfer all of my data, applications and settings. When I took my MacBook home, it began freezing up. Away from Time capsule, no freezing issues. Checking Time machine, it hasn't backed up data since the new HD was installed. Apple Store "genius" checked with Disk Warrior and said the drive was failing. I asked whether the freezing problem could be due to Time Machine/Time Capsule and they said no. But, if I turn off Time Machine, there is no freezing. Is it possible to continue backing up the new HD with the old information, or do I need to restart and do a full initial back up? Any ideas?

    When I have checked to see how Time Machine was doing, it seems to scan all the items on the HD, and then start to back up, but only 13 kb, or 20 kb or some low number is listed as being backed up before it freezes.
    That sounds like something's corrupted, either on your internal HD or your backups. Verify the internal, and repair your backups, per #A5 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting. (The repair of the backups will take a while, but will be much faster via Ethernet).
    I verified the internal HD and it said the disk was "appears to be okay". However when I verified the disk permissions, I got a list that when transferred to MS Word was 295 pages long of errors. I don't know if any of the specifics are useful in diagnosing my problem, but here are a few lines:
    Group differs on "Applications/Utilities/AirPort Utility.app/Contents/Resources/pl.lproj/AAUAdvanced.nib/keyedobjects.nib", should be 0, group is 80.
    Permissions differ on "Applications/Utilities/AirPort Utility.app/Contents/Resources/pl.lproj/AAUAdvanced.nib/keyedobjects.nib", should be -rw-r--r-- , they are -rw-rw-r-- .
    Group differs on "Applications/Utilities/AirPort Utility.app/Contents/Resources/pl.lproj/AAUAssistant.nib/keyedobjects.nib", should be 0, group is 80.
    I wonder whether this means that when our IT guy transferred my data from my old HD to the new one if there was a problem in the way he did it? Some of the log notes indicated that things had been modified and would not be repaired. I did not run the "repair disk permissions" yet because I am not sure that is the correct way to proceed with so many errors.
    If I need to do a full back up, I will connect directly to the Time capsule as you suggested. If possible, I would rather delete the older backups after doing the new one. Is that going to be possible.
    No, unfortunately, but it shouldn't be necessary to delete the old one, since there's plenty of room.
    Time Machine will do a full backup of the new drive, automatically. Before it froze, it likely showed something like +Copying xx mb of 110 GB,+ indicating it was going to back up the whole thing.
    Yes, it did indicate it was going to copy the whole thing. I tried connecting directly via ethernet cable, and it still only copied 13 kb of 107 GB.
    Should I repair the disk permissions and try again?
    Thanks for any more thoughts.

  • I have a new Mac. I turned it off and it is asking for my password which I never set up yet

    I turned off my new Mac and when I turned it back on it is now asking for my password which I had not set up yet. I have tried every password I can think of, nothing works so now I cannot use my Mac. Also, a password is set for Administrator but I did not set one so I cannot change it.

    Welcome,
    First you say "new Mac" which one exactly. Year and size? If you didn't set up a password that prompt might just be blank. How did you set it up originally?

  • When my intel based desktop goes to sleep I have to shutdown to restart or turn power off and on to restart

    After downloading OS X my desktop will not restart when clicking the mouse after it goes to sleep.  I have to either unplug and plug it back in or hold the power switch down until it shuts down completely and then restart.  Other then that, everything is fine.

    I think I have resolved my problem by uninstalling my cell phone software : Sony Ericsson PC Companion 2.0  I found that this program was interfering with windows when I wanted to turn off my computer and stopped shut down.  It interfered more after two recent upgrades.  I don't think Sony Ericsson has very good programer, because the more they upgrade the program the more it conflicted with Windows 7 64 bit OS  I had this program on my system for a long time before the problem arose.  I uninstalled the program and noticed my system ran better.  It shut down without forcing any program to end.  Since there was such a dramatic change in how the system worked, I tried to reset my computer to go to sleep and not shut it down.  It works a designed and no longer loses power while sleeping.  I didn't think an installed program could affect this feature but apparently it can.

  • Reset PRAM restart or turn it off and on?

    Hi,
    To reset the PRAM, I typically just restart the computer while holding the "Option Command + PR" keys. Never seems to solve whatever problem I'm having - but all works well.
    Am I doing this right?? I just read you need to shut down (meaning turning the MacBook Pro off?), and start up the machine while holding said keys for 3 chimes.
    Will a restart while holding the keys do it properly, or must I shut the computer OFF first, then turn it back on?
    Maybe I've been doing it wrong ??
    Thanks,
    Larry

    Thank you, Peter,
    You say 3 chimes, the apple link says 2 chimes whichever . . . but more importantly, I guess I should be turning the computer OFF, NOT just restarting. Thanks,

  • FCP launches v slowly and then totally jams my macbook pro

  • I am going to college this fall and can't decide which MacBook pro to buy!

    I am going to college this fall and can't decide which MacBook pro to buy the 13in or the 15in. Mainly to type, browse the web, watch videos, and maybe some light gaming. I am worried that the 15in might be too big to carry around all the time.  And worried about the 13in being too small and hurting my eyes over time. Once I do get one, I am most likely going to use it for the full 4 years. Please Help !

    The 13" will do the trick for what you describe as your needs, Be sure to consider how you will backup your data -- need an external drive?
    Also be sure to check with your college or division of study to see what they recommend. If they are hostile to Macs, you may be on your own for finding support. But in most major cities, that will not be too hard.

  • Time Capsule error 22 - My time capsule was working fine and didn't notice anything wrong with it until it stopped backing up about two weeks ago. I never changed anything like computer names or the Airport settings. All I get is the following: The backup

    Time Capsule error 22 - My time capsule was working fine and didn't notice anything wrong with it until it stopped backing up about two weeks ago. I never changed anything like computer names or the Airport settings. All I get is the following:
    The backup disk image "/Volumes/Data/Linda's Computer 1.sparsebundle" could not be created (error 22).
    I tried resetting the Time Capsule and connecting with an ethernet cable, although the Ariport Utility says everything is working fine through WiFi.

    If the light will not turn on the TC is dead. No matter that the hard disk is running.. it should only run at start up or when it is accessed not constantly.. that means the board in the TC has failed. Apple do not repair them.. They will replace it under warranty or applecare.
    If you have gone over the 12month warranty it will still be covered if you have applecare on any computer or an Apple TV. In fact the cost of the apple TV plus apple care is still cheaper than buying a new TC.. so it is a route some people are taking.. certainly depends.. in some places like Europe or Australia now, there is a recognition that statutory warranty must be longer on a product that is premium to the market. 12months is not good enough. Apple will sometimes listen.
    They might be fixable but I do not know how.

  • Whenever I have a pdf document open, and then switch to another tab to view another webpage, the scrolling function on the touchpad will not work. This seems to be a glitch with Mozilla, according to Dell. How do I fix this?

    When I open a pdf document (like an E-version of a newspaper) in Mozilla and then switch to another tab to view another webpage, I am unable to use the scrolling function on the touchpad. I have to use the up and down arrows to get other pages to scroll. When I close that pdf document, everything works fine. I talked with customer support with Dell, and he said it was probably a glitch with Mozilla. So I tried to do the same thing on IE, and there was no problem scrolling with the touchpad while a pdf document was open on another tab. I would like to get a fix for this so I don't have to keep closing open pdf documents in order to scroll with the touchpad while on other tabs. Thank you
