Possible to switch electronic board?

Text:

Good evening everyone.
 
My WD Passport External hard drive doesn't turn on, it never fell and worked just fine yesterday.
 
I checked with a multimeter, the problem isn't coming from the systems USB port and this WD drive model cannot be used on another body with SATA. I am trying to figure out an option to save my data.
 
Since there is no click noise or anything else, I'm assuming my data maybe safe on the disk still ...
 
From my research online, it might be possible to buy the exact same WD hard drive and switch the electronics board, if the problem is that, would it be possible to access the files with the new board on it? If the problem has another source ... well... I have no idea what could be done.
 
My questions:
 
* Is it indeed possible to change the electronic board for this model with another My Passport drive?
* Is it possible to buy the board only or do I have to buy the same hard drive (complicated as it's 3 years old and I can't find the exact same model) ?
* If I do buy the same one, does it also need to be the same capacity ? 1TB as mine or will a 500GB or 2TB model do?
 
Any help will be more than welcome. Thanks to you all

Good evening everyone.

My WD Passport External hard drive doesn't turn on, t never felt and work just fine yesterday.

I check with a multimetre, the problem sn't coming from the USB port and as this wd model cannot be used on another ody with sata i am trying to fgure out an option to save my data.

Since there is no clic noise or else  am assuming my data my be safe on the disk yet ...

From my research online, it might be possible to buy the exact same hard drive and switch the eletronic board, if the problem come from it t would be ossible to access the files with the new board on. If the problem has another source ... well...  have no idea what could be done.
