gmc Posted July 7, 2022 Share Posted July 7, 2022 I purchased a Apple disk drive A2M0003 from eBay which I'm trying to get working on my Apple IIe I"ve opened up the drive and cleaned all oiled everything and slide/motor moves freely. New to using Apple computers so first need to check a few things. With the disk drive connected to a disk ii interface card (drive 1) I power the Apple on and the red light on the drive stays on and it makes a shudder sound for a few seconds. (Drive doesn't spin) Then press Crtl-Reset - LED goes off. Run PR#5 and it shudders again, LED stays on but again no spinning. Is this normal (Apart from that it should spin correct? There is no disk in the drive) I've tested all the logic chips and can't find any issues. I've tried looking for schematics but all the ones I've found so not seem to match the board I have. I've read through the SAMS service manual for the A2M0003 but it seems to refer to a completely different PCB than what I have. Can someone point me in the right direction? Also does this sound like a issue with the analog or speed controller board? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
