Most, if not all hard drives cannot have their PCB's just swapped between different models. Even two different drives from the same model may not work when switching the PCB as it stores specific data regarding that drive. It's some sort of calibration thing if you want to look at it that way. There's nothing you can do on your own even if you find another matching PCB. You'll most likely have to go for professional recovery services.
