Hey gurus!
I've registered here 'cause I found a lot of your posts as results when searching for fixes about Seagate.
I'm new for what concerns about this kind of low-level informations and HDD stuffs (and also their architectures).
I'm from Italy and I'm a quite amateur enthusiast when speaking about computers and Linux (so many years I don't use Windows).
Something other about me... Well, I like fishing, rally cars, and old arcade games.
I'm not an IT engineer neither an electronics expert.
First time having to deal with problematic HDD.
Hope you'll kindly take out from my troubles!! :P

\\\

Ok, I'll describe my issue regarding the post's title.
I was trying to update the firmware of ST2000DM001 with PN: 9YN164-500.

The disk is empty, I DO NOT need to recovery any data in it!

You'll see more infos in the attached images.
Here's a sum-up of steps I've done:
  1. Thanks to this issue on GitHub (https://github.com/Seagate/openSeaChest/issues/36) I updated the firmware onto another Seagate (not the one for what I'm asking your help)
  2. From that successful updating, then I tried to proceed for the update onto ST2000DM001 (PN: 9YN164-500)
  3. So, I again used the same utility (closed source version): https://github.com/Seagate/ToolBin/blob/master/SeaChest/Firmware/v2.8.2/Linux/SeaChest_Firmware_282_12130_64
  4. Searched for firmware via the serial number using this link: https://apps1.seagate.com/downloads/request.html
  5. That leads me to here: https://www.seagate.com/it/it/support/kb/barracuda-1tbdisk-platform-firmware-update-223651en/
  6. Downloaded the ISO: http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/downloads/firmware/Barracuda-ALL-GRCC4H.iso
  7. Extracted the ISO
  8. Renamed GR-CC4H.ima to GR-CC4H.img
  9. Extracted GR-CC4H.img
  10. From inside it I found LOD.zip, extracted
  11. Inside the zip there are the LOD firmwares and CFS config file
  12. Code:
    # ./SeaChest_Firmware_282_12130_64 -d /dev/sdd --fwdlConfig GR-CC4H.CFS
  13. Does nothing, no errors, but neither upgrading firmware
  14. So I proceeded the manual update
  15. Code:
    # ./SeaChest_Firmware_282_12130_64 -d /dev/sdd --downloadFW GRCC4H4H.LOD
  16. I suddenly heard trange scratching noises and the disk became unresponsive for about 5 minutes. Maybe wrong heads firmware?
  17. The program then exited successfully, but the HDD doesn't appears anymore, neither after a full computer poweroff cycle
  18. I choose GRCC4H4H.LOD because of this: http://blog.asiantuntijakaveri.fi/2013/09/updating-seagate-st3000dm001-9yn166-to.html
  19. and this: http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/GR-CC4H.TXT


Now HDD isn't recognized nor in BIOS neither in Linux and when the computer boots, I hear the HDD trying to spin up with no success (meanwhile HDD's activity LED remains steady).
After about 15 seconds, the computer boots fine, but still the disk is not recognized

Here's to you dmesg log from Linux and output log from TTL serial to USB:
Code:

Also, CTRL+Z does nothing.

These drives are prone to develop surface and head damages just by themselves. If you already had issues with it before you forced that fw update, i think this is the case.
I doubt that any fw version for the same family would cause such log.

Code:
Servo !supported preamp ID 0000   

this one is odd as well, coz surface and head problems do not cause such log i think. Unless you have bad contact between PCB and HDA in addition.

No issues at all until my bad try when updating firmware.

Sorry, I don't see the EDIT button for my previous post.
Forgot to tell you that the errors appear with ad without the piece of paper between PCB and motor contacts!
I'm linking you a video I just made of the inside of the HDD: https://streamable.com/oriv0j

Now that you've opened the case all is left is to put it in the freezer. That should fix your problem. :D

yeah, no point in repairing it after you opened the HDA.
The story is somewhat odd to me and i would be really interested wether that fw update could have killed the preamp, which i doubt... do you get that !supported preamp ID 0000 msg without isolating the preamp?
It is a bit confusing me, i am not even sure you put the paper between motor contacts or preamp contacts...
I also met a fw update flaw on 7200.4 drives. The client updated several drives at their company and one of them failed at some point, leaving the backed up adaptive files in the folder the update was run from. When they tried to update the next disk, the update process was unable to save the current adaptives because the files already existed, but it did not fail with an error, it continued to the update and uploaded the prev. disk's adaptives to the current one, effectively killing it for good. But even in that case the drive was OK mechanically and electrically as well, 'only' the adaptives were swapped.

Anyway, your drive is not repairable, if you had data on it it would be probably recoverable, but since you don't, there's no point trying anything.

Ok, I'm closing this request.
Marked as UNSOLVABLE.

... Guys, if someone is interested and could recover this HDD as its spare parts, then I can give to you for free, gratis, if someone would pay shipping fees from Italy.

Let me know, bye!

Thanks for all your kind support and you time!! 8) :wink:
