Apple has owned up to something that owners have suspected for some time - that the early batch of Time Capsule devices were prone to an early death.

This applies to Time Capsules sold between approximately February 2008 and June 2008. Problems include the device failing to power on or shutting down unexpectedly after starting up.
Some Time Capsules with serial numbers in the following range may be affected:

XX807XXXXXX - XX814XXXXXX

How to find the serial number on your Time Capsule.

If your Time Capsule falls within serial number range above and it does not power on or shuts down unexpectedly after starting up, it may be eligible for repair or replacement.

If you've paid for a repair of a Time Capsule falling into the above serial number range, then Apple suggests you contact the company to discuss a refund.
