Hi there.

You can try to replace the PCB if you want, but I won't recommend it. I'm not saying that not only because this is an unsupported and not recommended operation in general, but mostly because that the risk of damaging the drive further is too big and that the chance of finding an exact match of a PCB is really low due to the differences in firmware over the years.

The danger is that it may (will) have different settings for how to align the heads to the the tracks on the physical disk surface, and when it tries to write anything (which it will) it will result in all your data being obliterated.

Instead I'd suggest to consult with a data recovery company and see if the professionals there will be able to help you in this situation. Here's a link with few of our partners you can check if you want:

Hope this helps and best of luck!
