Seagate st2000lm007 heads swap

Postby odedshankar » 05.10.16, 07:32

Hi Guys,

Just got for the first time the new Seagate st2000lm007 slim form factor with bad heads.
This is the first time i see one of those, and they look a bit funny.
Before i fiddle with it did someone had the chance to swap heads on these ones? if so what is the best and safe way to do so.

Thanks

I think the biggest concern right now is that it's not supported by PC3000 yet and the diagnostic port is locked. I read on data medics forum that there isn't much space for head combs or spacers, but even if the head swap works what if you need to fix firmware?

you are right, but at this stage the only thing i can do is try and swap the heads to try and recover the data.
But i find it very challenging - as you said -not much space, no right combs yet and i can't seem to find the pivot or screw to remove the heads stack.
