That was the case with the 610 power supply which was too weak to spin the drive, but the 710 power supply worked well. I sure hope I did not stick the heads to the platter when I was moving the machine... on every power up the drive backed up the head to the "0" position so hopefully it was not the case. > The power connector was also pretty flimsy on some drives and would fail > after plugging it in and out a few times. > Definitely check both +5 and +12 on the drive's PC board at the connector. The connector looks good and at least the +5V is applied because the drive board reports the error. I will unscrew the board from the mechanics and measure the +12V in various places.
