Hi German,

Does the hard disk spin up?

If not, then the solenoid repair won't help. Try flipping the flywheel (right after you turn on the power) with the eraser end of a pencil to see if it will go.

After spinning up, is there a "clack" sound (from the solenoid), followed by some "squeaking"?

If not, then you need to check/adjust the solenoid again.

If so, then the drive is working, check the cables are connected. Unplug and re-plug the data connector and I/O board to wipe the contacts. If that doesn't help, you may want to try to re-initialize it and reinstall the software (note that this destroys all data already on the hard disk!).

Good luck!
