HDT721010SLA360 after PCB replacement

Postby drmilos » 20.11.13, 06:45

I have a HDT721010SLA360.

Original PCB dead, disk not spinning, no indicator in utility.

Replaced PCB, transferred NV-RAM and ROM. Drive spins up and DRD/DSC. ID on utility start fails with UNC/INF/AMN. I select the family HDx7210SL and start utility, here is the log

<begin>
Selected family......................... : HDx7210SL
Model by ID............................. :

Techno mode key......................... : Ok
NV-RAM reading.......................... : Ok

Module not read (USAG)
Error : Device error detected (INF)

Loading the table of "open" modules................................... : Error
Error :............................................................... : Error executing loading "open" modules dir command
Module ZONE is not found!
Module is not loaded (USAG, Main module table)
<end>

I tried:

NV-RAM adjustment (SA search) - each read attempt fails with INF

Editing NV-RAM and changing heads to 5 from 6 - no difference except that drive stays busy after a read attempt

Check modules - report is here

<end>

Obviously, can't read any modules.

What can I do next? Is there a way to check integrity of NV-RAM data (CS OK when I tried NV-RAM edit)? Is it possible that pre-amp is faulty although drive gets DRD/DSC?

Any idea and suggestion much appreciated.

Hi,

Have you checked if heads are unlatching and trying to read SA ?

Hi datalabace,

I have not opened the drive (yet) but by the sound of it the head stack is not moving at all - there is no calibration sound or any other sound when I power up the drive except platters spinning.

So my guess would be that the heads are not trying to read SA when I power up the drive. I don't know if this model has a ramp or heads are parked on the platters.

You should open just to confirm that (as long as you have the conditions to open the drives).

I have an identical old failed drive (bad heads) so I opened that one, heads are parked on the ramp.

With this case it was the third time lucky - the drive came to life with the third donor PCB that I tried - they are supposedly all the same and all working but only one could do the job. I also had to perform NV-RAM adjustment - not sure why as I transplanted both original ROM and NV-RAM to donor PCB. Anyhow, another successful data recovery.

Thank you datalabace for ideas and suggestions

Ok. Nice.

But there was something on the case even though you did not understood it.
Miracles are not so often :D :D
