If you are prepared to open your enclosure and void your warranty, then the solution may be as simple as removing a shorted TVS diode. Can we see detailed photos of the USB-SATA bridge board and the drive’s own PCB?

I agree that if you take the chance to open the enclosure yourself you risk voiding your warranty.  Faced with a situation where I had to get to the harddrive inside my external, I contacted the support group.  Their recommendation - have a WD authorized repair place perform the surgery to open the enclosure and they would in turn honor the warranty.  BestBuy’s Geek Squad did mine for $30.
