Any hard drive repairers?

post #1 of 9

Its been a while since I plugged my HDD. Hitachi 750GB 7200RPM. Plugged it up today. It started smoking. Is there anyway possible I can repair this? In the picture you will see the burnt part.

In the past I have purchased an identical, and I mean identical drive and swapped out the pcb board to recover a failed drive.
It might be worth a shot.
And heck even if it doesn't work you have a new drive!

Well, Easiest way is to get a new circuit board. What you can do is, IF you are willing to spend a little bit of money to get the data off of it., There are I think 3 different numbers on there, they look like serial numbers, you can remove the board safely with a star bit screw driver, if they are not on the side that its facing already.

without sending it in for data recovery ( which is what they do too is replace the board) if you can find identical #s to match up and get it off of ebay.

or the similar type of hard drive (model number , for example ST320000AB) and ask for those specific numbers on the bottom , it may be cheaper that way

we answered at the exact same time too, hilarious. Yea It is going to be a little time consuming because Ive done this quite a bi when I worked at my PC shop, you must aquire the exact same board as what you have now to get it to work properly

The P/N on the front and possibly this number on the back.

as stated above, if that board ends up being too much with those numbers, look for the model number on your hitachi drive, HDS721075kLA330 or 0A36191 (which ever is best price) are the numbers you are needing on ebay, and email multiple people just in case one may answer faster than the other lol, that's what I always did
