MyBook Studio WD20EADS green not firing up

Hi everyone, new to the forum, so please forgive me if this subject has been broached b4.  I’ve had a quick search but can’t find the relative info.  My WD Studio 2TB drive suddenly stopped firing up. I’m convinced this is a powerboard problem, but don’t know for sure.  I’m hoping my data is still intact.  My question is…is it possible to change the powerboard? If so, would you know where one can buy such a replacement?  I understand the numbers have to be the same (something to do with encryption I believe)…so here’s my number…  4060-705066-003 REV.P1…I’m in a gentle spiral which is gradually turning into a fully blown spin towards the ground as I have over 80,000 aircraft photos on the drive as well as a wedding vid I was editing.

Any help would be really appreciated,

Thanks in advance, Steve


Through WD standards procedures replacement parts are not sold by WD, but you can try searching on Ebay. There are also some data recovery companies you can try to contact. Check the link below for more information.
