Seagate PCB 100535537 Rev. A Read Short Points

March 24th, 2019, 22:39

Hello,

After a couple of hours scouring everywhere, I cannot believe for the PCB in the title I can't find anywhere the short points. Can somebody please post a picture of the PCB Read Short Points on a ST31000528AS 100535537 Rev. A. Have a very important job that I need to get a business their files back.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you have much experience in dealing with Seagate failures?
I see its your first post. What are the issues your are having?

I really do appreciate the help everyone. Yes I despise Seagate drives. I have no problems at all with other drives, always smooth sailing, Seagate just sucks and tries to make things difficult. @ddrecovery, I have been doing this for awhile now, I just knew eventually I would end up with one of these nightmare hard drives, thus the reason for my first posts, I'm not much of a poster, I learn from everyone else's threads when I need something, but when something alludes me, I have to swallow the pride and ask for help.

@Northwind, thank you VERY much for the picture.

@fzabkar, thank you very much for the useful link.

@NorthWind Weird

none of the two channels , when shorted (tried either with a button soldered on the respective test points),

makes the heads to click as expected

it makes anyway the recalibration sound

while if you short the right channel, it should click
