Manual for Swap Hard Drive PCB
What is Hard Drive PCB?
The green board on the base of the hard plate drive is known as Printed Circuit Board(PCB). The fundamental capacity of the PCB is to flexibly capacity to the hard drive, keep up speed and revolution of the axle, and control all interior tasks through its firmware. Basically, PCB is the cerebrums of the hard drive that all segments are intensely needy upon.
Why Swap PCB Boards?
Hard plate drives that don’t turn up after the force has been provided can be analyzed as PCB disappointment. Since information recuperation administration is pricey, at times we would like to trade them ourselves.
How to locate the coordinating HDD PCB sheets?
Western Digital – same board number which is scratched on the PCB, start with 2060-
Seagate – same board number which is scratched on the PCB, start with 100…, and a similar Main Controller IC. On the off chance that you can’t locate the number on the PCB (Old Models), you should locate a similar Main Controller IC.
Maxtor-same Main Controller IC(The greatest chip on the board)
Hitachi-same data on the little white name (initial two lines)
Samsung – same board number which is scratched on the PCB, start with BF41-
Fujitsu – same board number which is scratched on the PCB, start with CA
Hard Drive PCB Swap Process:
Eliminate the PCB from both hard drives with star screwdriver. Supplant the harmed PCB with substitution one. In the event that you HDD turns up, yet can’t be remembered, you ought to likewise trade the BIOS chip on it. On the off chance that there is no coordinating 8pins BIOS chip on the PCB, it implies the BIOS chip is incorporated on the Main Chip IC, at that point you should eliminate the harmed PCB’s Main Chip IC to the contributor PCB. It is more unpredictable to trade the Main Chip IC than trade the BIOS chip. On the off chance that you ought to do, kindly do a few test on the PCBs which don’t have the significant information.
What is PCB’s BIOS Chip?
The entirety of the 8pins (4 pins on each sides) with 25P05VP, 25P10VP, 25F512, 25F1024, 25F1024AN, SST25VF512, SST25VF010, and so forth are the BIOS chip. It is anything but difficult to be found on the grounds that there are very few 8pins chips on the board.
Much of the time, you should trade the BIOS before you trade hard plate pcb. You ought to have certain method.
Note: You should know the hard drive disappointments are not generally brought about by PCB disappointment, trade PCB can’t ensure to fix the entirety of the hard drive issues.
