If a hard drive has failed it cannot be repaired, not at home anyway, but they do get refurbished by companies such as MDT for reselling.

You can test the drive with "SeaTools for Windows": http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

If the testing software cannot access the drive you won't be able to test it. In that case the PCB inside the enclosure has probably failed. Your only options then are to either throw it away or try to remove the drive from the enclosure and put it into a third-party hard drive enclosure.
