Quick question would the data cable cause no activity. It wont take in a DVD. I found the phat schematics, checked power, I have +5 and +12 on the drive. The MB came with the BRD chip so I swapped the chip on the logic PCB but still no go. I really think the drive went south. At times I thought it was my cell phone on vibrate... the noise it was making.
I have found more times than not, it is the ribbon cable. But logic boards do go bad too.
Or who is to say it is even the original logic board? I see in your first post you say the logic board is an A3? I don't know what that is. The board should be BMD-001, if it is the original.
