Defective Hard Drive Electronics Assembly

Is the electronics assembly of your hard drive defective? Attingo is very experienced in saving electronically damaged hard drives.

Signs of a defective electronics assembly

  • The hard drive doesn't start anymore, no starting noises.
  • Components on the board are burnt through (unpleasant, burnt, acrid smell)
  • Hard drive is getting very hot

Causes of electronic hard drive damage

  • Usage of the wrong power supply unit (it often occurs that a 12V power supply unit is confsued with a 19V one)
  • Voltage peaks (e.g. after lightning strikes), power fluctuations, blackout
  • Direct solar radiation
  • Insufficient ventilation (e.g. server rooms without air conditioning)

What to do if your hard drive electronics assembly is damaged

Our clients often try to perform a data rescue on their own with structurally identical hard drives, but that hardly ever works.

  • Don't apply power to the hard drive anymore, especially if it still works. It could worsen the damage on the electronical components and also damage the write/read heads. In some cases overvoltage leads to damage on the data carrier surfaces or the adaptive parameters and the data gets irretrievably lost.
  • Especially newer hard drive models have adaptive parameters, which are located on the electronics assembly. An exchange of the PCB can lead to clacking noises when starting the hard drive. The damage may even be worse if the heads are also defective.
  • We advise you on our Diagnosis Services as well as the whole process of the dara rescue. If you need an express data rescue your staff is there for you all around the clock.
  • Take a look at put packaging tips, so your hard drive arrives in our laboratories safely and unharmed.
