Hi All Experts,
I’ve read some of the similar incident in this community whereby I’ve accidently used the laptop power adapter instead of the HDD power adapter and then my HDD no longer have any lights or disc spinning activities.
By then, I knew I must have blown something on the circuit board.
My next action then was to take out the HDD, removed the circuit board connected to the HDD, and connect the HDD to my computer directly by using some external SATA-to-USB devices.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t help. When I plugged in the power cord into the power socket and turn on the power, the power indication just keep flashing on the SATA-to-USB device but the HDD remained static.
I tried on other HDD and it power up just fine.
Does that means I’ve blown the fuse or something not only on the external circuit board but also on my HDD circuit board?
I’ve read some solution provided is to replace the fuse to get it working again so I’m attaching a pic of the circuit board, hoping some kind soul can help me now.
I’m not much of an electrical person but I really need to get into the data as it contains much of my work document and personal family photo. :cry:
