D5.2 Segate hard disk firmware repair & data recovery

Before this you must clear idea of hard disk firmware module

  1. How to connect hard disk
  2. Hard disk families
  3. Identify hard disk types f3 or old
  4. Connection of terminal ,
  5. Command prompt f3 and normal
  6. Termian commands identify and demo ( smart  list, servo , regenerat )
  7. Segate hard disk common 3 stage repair process
  8. Common problems and solution steps
  1. TCC-001A[0x000042F9][0x000042F9]ZZZZMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZMMMMMMMMMMM…. – This error relates to an inability to read Servo or Overlays. This message is also displayed at some Grenada models when PCB/ROM is not native.
  2. Failed to load overlay 00000004 – This is usually associated with some hardware error and can be caused by non-native adaptives (i.e non-original ROM).
  3. SIM error 1002 – This message alerts us to some error with one or more defect list. Potentially P-list or NRG list can be bad.
  4. SIM error 2044 – Translator tables cannot be read or are damaged.
  5. SIM error 1009 – Module 17A is damaged.
  6. SIM ERROR 3005 – Mean that “format corrupted flag” in on and Translator is not loaded in RAM.
  7. SIM Error 203F / SIM Error 2040 / SIM Error 2044 / SIM Error 3005 – Also seem to be damaged or unreadable translator related errors.
  8. LED:00000047 FAddr:FFFFFFFE – Usually this relates to Media Cache.
  9. LED:000000BC FAddr:00006220 – Usually this also relates to Media Cache or some relocation parameters.
  10. “No HOST FIS-ReadyStatusFlags” – (reason message: why translator is not loaded) LED:000000BD FAddr:0000988E – Usually relates to Media Cache or other background processes in System File 93. Some have reported clearing SMART as having fixed the issue.
  11. MCMTFileHandler: EXCEPTION: Failed MCMT read request – Relates to System file 346 being damaged, or possibly media cache.
