Toshiba MK5065GSX Clicking

Postby DCC-PC3K » 13.07.21, 11:04

HI Everyone,

I have a Toshiba 2.5" HDD (MK5065GSX) drive that initially powered on and become DRD+DSC ready, I was able to perform a resource backup with no errors.

When I tried express test in PC3K no sectors were being read or failed, just contant timeout/retry (heads believed to be failing). After a power on/power off drive now spins up, clicks and is stuck in BSY state, drive does not power down it keeps spinning.

I have tried changing heads with a suitable donor, but drive now makes a bad screeching sound, no scratches observed on platters. After putting donor heads back into donor drive, the donor spins up and becomes DRD+DSC ready.

What could be issue with patient drive, am I just unlucky that heads werent truly compatible? Or could there be other issues.

Thanks for any help!

Thanks, I'll refer to that in future with Toshiba drives. In my case it turns out heads were dead, first swap wasn't a true compatible donor. Second donor found and now reads OK, apart from suspected surface problems with Head 2.
