I have a somewhat old, but functional (used to be, actually) hard drive, model Samsung HD103SJ, which I use for backup purposes. This means this is not a fixed unit.
Since a few weeks ago when I moved to a new city, I notice it wouldn't power on anymore. So, upon closer inspection, I noticed one component hanging "loose" in its PCB:
The component is labeled 4R7V. It appears to be actually connected... Here's a look on the opposite side:
- is it an inductor?
- is it the reason why the hard drive is non-functional? Is it reasonable to expect to fix the problem by replacing it?
