I have a 2nd gen TC, but one that came after those known to be affected with short lived power supplies, at least based on the serial number. All of a sudden it just died completely 20 minutes ago. Lost wifi on my iPad, looked at my TC and sure enough the light was out. It's non-existent in Airport Utility, can't reset it, can't get the drive to spin up, nothing. Totally dead. Ethernet works when the cable is plugged directly into my computer, so the internet isn't the problem. Sound like the power supply finally bit it? Apparently there isn't a genius bar appt to be found whatsoever for a few days at least. Also - although this TC is circa 2009, I DO have AppleCare on my wife's MBP which is just over 2 years old. I have heard that ANY active Apple Care plan will cover the TC since you can't buy AC for the TC, but does that really apply when the computer was bought later on? I do remember calling AC once when I couldn't get the TC set up in my new house back in May and the Apple guy did mention something about the fact my wife's machine has AC, but then we got the TC set up and working. Is there a chance this 2009 Time Capsule will be covered by MBP AppleCare purchased with a 2013 machine?? I DID replace the drive in the Time Capsule a couple years back when that died, not sure if this will affect getting a covered replacement.
