    Ammonia got a reaction from TRS-80 in Only HDD 1 & 2 power up   
    I ordered a replacement MOSFET (same model), including a drop-in replacement from vishay with better power ratings (just in case it should happen again). Unfortunately shipping is taking longer than it should. I temporarily bypassed the MOSFET to get all the hard drives to boot up so I could transfer the more important data. I was hoping fixing it would be faster than receiving a replacement board - and for me dealing with UPS is playing Russian roulette. Fixing it by replacing a 13-14 cent component is the better option for us both. Hopefully I won't ruin the board in the process!
