I've had an older 250GB FreeAgent eHDD for a few years now, and surprisingly the drive electronics died before the disc did (I kept it on a ton but moved it very little, I guess it finally had enough of the heat?). Essentially I'd connect it, and it would stay on for a few minutes, and I would be able to access files just fine, no read errors, however, after a few minutes the drive just loses power. I'm certain the power source is reliable. As I don't have the tools nor the knowledge to repair a PCB, I'm wondering if I can obtain a replacement PCB. I've looked off of Google and it doesn't seem like the PCB is widely available for sale. I really need the files off of this drive.

The 1st P/N is 100453518
The 2nd P/N is 9NL6AG-500
The S/N is [Edited: Removed personal information per the community rules and regulations.]
