Hardly an expert here, but I think I would start by resecuring the connections from the main board to the mechs, and then reseat (or replace if poss?) the 6502s. - Bo -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of B.

When I power it on, (usually) both drives spin briefly. Rather than the normal green-red-green flash pattern to indicate a healthy drive; the diskette lights "freeze" red and the center light "freezes" green. After a three or so seconds the drive 0 light starts to blink slowly. The drive 1 light stays solid red, the center light remains solid green. Any ideas? I am looking into it on this end, but I thought I'd ask here too. The drive is the type with the flip doors, not the normal press and lock mechanism.
