Hi all, funny i seem to google this place everytime i have an odd hardware fault and here i am again finding a perfect thread CDFREAKS nice one again
I read that replace logic boards was shocked and suprised that it was so easy and that there seems to be no selling bords, though tommorow i plan to spend the day ringing any and every one i can think of.
My issue is i had 500GB HDD ( now i never had one just n ot work all have indicated there failures in the past so i wasnt scared to have all info on one hdd with no back ups ( its hard to back up a 500GB drive unless you mirror etc so i opted for the suck it and see)
I accidentally knoccked it hard while messing about with my shuttle. And now when you plug the power in its tries to do somthing then stops get like a stepper motor electrical noise increase in frequency then a ugh noise and tties again 5 times then gives up.
It dosnt have jumpers so to speak but one setting said PUIS power up in standby, when i jumpered that the disk spins up! but cant be found by anything,
So would you agree that sounds like an engineboard ?
If so i just need to hunt down the same type of drive ( same firmware rev too ! ouch ) swap the logic retreave the info swap logic back and RMA the original bad drive.
Gonna persue Western digital gonna nag and beg them for help on buying just the engine board and if they dont sell it to me or help me i will sware at them hang up i might ring around depending how ez it too see if anyone does do this and then probably stick to that manufacturer in future. out i could fill that second drive up too lol and then i have a 2nd 500GB hdd maybe its mirror time b
Thanks for this thread i let ya know what happends maybe
