well i think the only other way is to desolder the flash chip and have some1 with a programmer try fix it im sure if you look in the installers section you will find someone who could do this for you either that or if you have a original dump of fw you could then use this on your sammy ie spoof i think this is your best options

Failing that, borrow another Hitachi and swap the boards. If it's just the mechanics, you'll be able to get the drive working enough to read the DVD key via Firmware Toolbox.
