Hallo here in forums,
i have a HD here that was in a external case and where somebody had attached the wrong adapter…it got to much Volts and the PCB burned away.
i hope the internat magnetarm-elektronic is not damadged, because the pins, that lead to the elektronic (not to the rotating motor) are a little bit brouwn.
i think ive a good chance, that i could save the data it was onto if i get a matching PCB. but then searching for that i had to realize, that WD changed the hardwaredesign very often in a short time of a few month.
can someone help me to find out, if some models i found of ebay possible has the exact PCB on it. and perhaps give me a little prognose, how good is the chance i get it to run again ?
these is the data of my drive:
DATE: 19 NOV 2006
short question: is “DCM” the serial ?
i already had tested a drive from 24 FEB 2007 without sucsess…the drive rotates and sounds normal but it isnt recoognized correctly (the motor is not damaged by overvoltage. thats a good sign. i think the overvoltage made shortcut some diodes or some parts that damaged the PCB but prevented the inside elektronic from being damaged.)
anyway it wasnt the right PCB.
i first thought it is enough to look for the number on the PCB (2060-701292-002 REV A) but then i had to realized, that this only means the board design, not the controllers being used.
the controllers being used in this revision are:
ETRONTECH EM638165TS-66 K413208RLJ7721H
SMOOTH L6283 1.3
my question is if the controller of a drive from “19 DEC 2006” is the same ?
WD so often changed the PCB, that im not sure…their is 1 month between the drives.
perhaps someone have that drive and can sell it ?
the data on it isnt soo important, but i try to safe it for a girlfriend and im sure she would be happy if i manage this.
i also thought about changing all the smd-parts on board and trying my luck by replacing the diodes,resistors,controllers and so on…but im not sure if itz worth.
ps.: sry if ive bad english (from germany)
thx 4 every help
