Seagate 100687658 PCB’s BIOS

March 25, 2014

Q: MODEL ST2000DM001
PN 1E6164-570
PCB 100687658 REV C

I bought two identical drives together. Now one is burned and hard disk light is keep on blinking and nothing happens when plugged in. My hardware guy confirmed that pcb is burned and I also can see reddish colours on PCB.

My question is if i swap the boards from other 1TB (Identical), should I be able to recover data on burned hard disk.

A: 1. You should confirm other PCB has the same board number – 100687658 as the burnt one.
     2. Before swapping the PCB, you need the move the burnt PCB’s BIOS to the replacement PCB, please refer the below photo:
