but Doomer is correct, this particular drive is not recoverable.


I would argue with that.

I ran two tests where I incrementally increased the mechanical pressure to the top of the nand chip. This test was to rule out that there was a bad solder joint under the nand. The device behavior was unchanged so I am ruling out a bad nand bga solder joint as the cause of failure.

Regarding PC3000 support of Firecuda LX, I enquired with Ace TS as I have a ST1000LX015 in which requires access to the SA. The standard unlock functions within PC3000 do not currently allow access to TechMode/F3 T.

The response from Ace on 2 September 2019 was simply:

Hello John,

Unfortunately this model is not supported via PC-3000 yet.
Nothing to advise at the moment. Thanks for understanding.

Best regards,
Sergey

I am in the exact same place as the OP.

Drive does not spin, same board revision, serial port gives me the exact same message
Code:
Boot 0x80M
           DensityList:0x0000
PrgF
LED:0x000000BD FAddr:0x000059D8

LED:0x000000BD FAddr:0x000059D8

LED:0x000000BD FAddr:0x000059D8


Any updates on this?

Hello,

i doubt anybody will tell you the precise cause of that error, it needs to be researched on my side. I won't do any research unless i do the recovery. This probably applies to the few people able to deal with these drives...

Same as before
Some people can fix, some can't.
No commercial tools available so far.

I have most of my important data backed up so I don't really mind losing the drive.

Doing this just for fun and getting some insider knowledge so I don't mind trying something potentially destructive.
