Hello and thanks in advance for any aid.
I have a WD5000AAKS - 00TMA0
DCM - DHNCNV2AHN
Some 6 months ago, while i was installing a fan cooler to another drive (wd250), i connected all of the components in line, on a 12v rail molex with a SATA power splitter, then the fans. After turning on the system it seems like my OEM PSU fried both drive PCBs. I know it probably wouldn’t have been some massive voltage shot through that rail, but i have heard of many people with this problem and i have seen them getting help through this forum.
So what do i do? Do i search for a PCB of a similar DCM and somehow reprogram it? (I have no idea about how to reprogram it)
I also would rather not get another PCB only to try to sholder the chip from my dead one to the new working one knowing i might destroy both.
I can probably unscrew the PCB and take pics of it and show it to some of you people that might know what i should do. I am ok with sholdering this already ruined PCB. I don’t have a multimeter but if i absulutely need one then i will get one.
Waiting for a reply. Thanks to all that can give me a credible solution.
