Defective Hard Drive Electronics Assembly

Is the electronics assembly (PCB) of your hard drive defective? Such affected hard drives normally don't spin up any more and stay completely silent. There are also often burnt components on the PCB and burnt or acrid fumes or smoke. For more than 22 years, Attingo recovers data professionally and is specialized on electronic damaged hard drives.

What to consider when affected by defective PCB

Often our customers try to swap the PCB of another identical constructed hard drive, in order to recover the data themselves. But only seldom this leads to the desired outcome, the hard drive often spins up, but the heads are only clicking.

  • Do not power on hard drives with defective PCB! Especially if it spins up, it can only worsen the damage on the electronical components and as a consequence even damage the write/read heads. In some cases over-voltage leads to damage on the magnetic surfaces or the adaptive parameters. The data gets irretrievably lost.
  • Do not replace any electronical components. The latest hard drive models have adaptive parameters, which are partly written into the hard drive PCB.

Causes for defects of the electronic assembly of hard drives

  • Usage of the wrong power supply unit (e.g. a power supply unit with 19V instead of 12V)
  • voltage peaks (e.g. after lightning strikes), power fluctuations, blackout
  • Direct solar radiation
  • Insufficient ventilation (e.g. server rooms without air conditioning)
