The Time Capsule Model A1302 is the second generation of Apple's wireless router and networked storage device released in March 2009. Most information from these repair and disassembly guides also applies to the original Model A1254.

Time Capsule powers on but wont boot.

Basically, i had a power outage and after I got power, the LED would flash green for like a second and then go out. I opened it up and found 2 caps that bloated so I replaced them. Now it will turn on, the fan spins for a little bit, there is an odd sound coming out of the power supply, and the HDD won't spins up. After a minute or so, the sound stops and there is just a blinking, orange LED on the front. Anyone have any ideas? If nothing else, can someone get me a pinout of the pins so i can power it with something else

To solve this, I first opened it up and removed the power supply following this guide Apple Time Capsule Model A1302 Power Supply Replacement

I found 2 bloated (dead) caps on the board and replaced them, although I replaced them it still didnt work.

I just decided to use an old computer power supply to power it and as I didnt use the hard drive for anything, I just removed it and powered only the board.

The guide i found for the pinouts is here.

What are the power supply pinouts for the 500gb time capsule?
