My plextor 716A just died on me. i tried to burn a dvd and it strangely took so long for it to initialize the burn. ABout 2 minutes later it would give me an error msg saying “Power Calibration Error”. So i ran the self diagnostic test and the end result was the blinking green lights which the mnual says a calibration error. This is such a dissapointment, i’ve had two plextor drives (8432 and premuim) that worked incredibly well but the 716A is the first one to give me problems.
Anyway if anyone has anymore troubleshooting suggestions please post away. I’ve already emiled plextor and they gave me an RMA form to fill out. For anyone here in canada, how long does it take for plextor to RMA a drive??? If its anything like their rebate (i waited FOUR months), then i guess i’ll be without a burner for a while.
