Disk Drive Not Working
After turning on computer, and inserting a disk, the drive doesn't engage and pull the disk in. Normally, you insert a disk and it gets grabbed by the drive and pulled down into the computer. Now, the "grabbing" part doesn't happen. I can't get the disk to stay in the computer.
Don't know if it just needs cleaning or the motor burned out. It kind of wore out.. it started to happen here and there over a year or so before it just stopped working all together. So, it seems to be a mechanical issue and not an electronic one.
Before I take it all apart.. I thought I would pause to see if others had any input on this. Thanks-
Hey @mayer this machine is from when you started out you should have an answer for this fellow. Ive never worked on anything this old from Mac
@jimfixer Thanks for the heads up. Yes I rebuilt one last month for a customer in Virginia. But am cooking dinner and egg, sausage, cheese biscuits for breakfasts for the week. Will help @albertenstein with this.
Thanks guys, I'll try cleaning it. It's spent many years in a box since I used it last so it could easily just be gunked up.
