Hi,
Yes It's true. You need find donor pcb (better find whole working correctly HDD) => resoldering ROM, it's probably IC602 and try running donor hdd.
Attention: ROM in Toshiba is unique. When the ROM is damage - You can't recover data.
When the pcb is corrett You should receive something via terminal.
If HDD doesn't want spin up: few times in Toshiba I saw that the head's arm stuck between Ramp and Platters and blocked platters.
Maybe stiction heads on platters - it could be resason why platters will don't spin.
Do You opened cover and saw heads?

Good Luck.

Hi AdasRip

I still haven't checked inside.
I'll try to get a donor PCB.
Thanks

It isn't a PCB problem...
Must check inside.
