My hard disk does not power up

My hard disk (3.5″) that I use as external storage does not power up any more. 🙁

Most probably it happened due to overheating.

Is there any way to salvage the information? Do hard disks have some sort of fuse that can get blown? I do not mind if the procedure is invasive (that is, the hard disk will get damaged while extracting the information).
