I have a WD 250 Go (I bought it around 2006), model WD2500i032, last night I have decided to plug it again and by mistake I used a 22.5V power supply, the light was green, no smell, no noise but the HDD didn’t spin up. Then I plugged a correct power supply (12V, 2A, (-)–(o–(+) ), the green light was on however no spinning, no noise only the light even after plugging/unplugging with different USB cable into different laptops.
I have removed the external box of the HDD and below some pictures of the logic board:

I have been looking for a TVS diod or any other burnt component but nothing…
I have all my college pictures and documents on that HDD!!
Anyone has any idea where to start? Could the issue be only on the Galaxy controller card so by plugging the HDD internally (I will test it on Thursday) it will work??
Thanks in advance for your help!!!
