[QUOTE=Kerry56;2527971]If the hard drive doesn’t have internal problems, you can switch out the circuit board as weedougie mentioned earlier in this thread. But it has to be the exact same model with the same firmware. Needles within haystacks come to mind.
Your best bet would be to search ebay for used drives and get their [B]exact[/B] specifications before purchasing.[/QUOTE]
I am a IT student. I have a barracuda 7200.11 750 GB seagate, and the circuit is fried. I made a picture of the circuit and i also found the burned spot. Can i solder something else there so it will work again? Cuz i saw that swapping does not work ? here
If i can solder it where can i find the component? Can some one give me a name of the fried component/chip? I am an “expert” in soldering, cuz i do PSP LED modding and solder lose psp components/chips.
It wont boot up now, and not even a sound. Will i get my data back without spending more than $100?
Thank you for the help,
If you cant see the pictures, here is the album
