Broken HDD Power Pin
Posted on 2004-09-22
I was replacing a power supply on an older Toshiba PC.
The power connector for the HD was a pain to get out and required a little rocking.
When I went to connect the new power connector, I noticed the 4th pin, connects to the yellow lead, was bent.
I had to unmount the HD to get at the connector. When I straightened it with a pair of long nose, it broke at the base flush to the HD case.
I'm going to assume the HD will not fire up with the missing lead.
Since there is needed data on the HD, is there any way to salvage this?
