wd5003abyx pcb burned


due to improperly connected power cable pcb burned :frowning:  

repairing possible? 


Yes i think can be possible, but you have to find out what was damaged, can be not worhty if you don’t mind about data … if you need data is better to contact a data recovery company as in these drives you can’t simply swap the PCB due to adaptive data in ROM.



Often the problem is only a shorted diode, in which case there is usually a zero-cost DIY solution.

Upload a detailed photo of the component side of the board if you need help.

Here is an example of the affected components:
