[separator headline=”h2″ title=”Cleanroom Job – No replacement MHA was required”]
Though it is quite rare, there can be internal damage to internal drive components other than the Magnetic Head Assembly (MHA) which may cause symptoms similar to a head crash, i.e. beeping or audible repetitive clicking sounds.
Problems in this category could include a damaged head ramp or incorrect parking of the heads in the parking ramp zone causing the MHA actuator mechanism to jam.
In these rare cases, a new ramp component may be required, or the heads may be re-positioned and re-calibrated so as to get the hard drive initialised for data recovery processing.
