    Ext floppy drive stuck?

    I carefully detached the springs to clean the top tray yes. I reattached them to see if it would now work with the clean top tray but it was still stuck like glue and it refused to reject even with the gear box out. The bottom tray with the manual eject lever slides fine tough so i almost positive its the top tray. And yes the top tray is straight.

    Its possible but ive already inspected the all the gears and all of them were fine that most likely would have been the 1# cause of a stuck drive.

    Well i tryed cleaning off the greese with q-tips and alcohol for about 10 mins and the thing was still stuck. I then tryed running it under hot water but the thing was still solid. Is there any other methods you have.

    Yes I have seen this video but he does not explain how to get old grease off. Also my drive is pretty clean and doesn't really need the sterilization or compressed air.

    Ext floppy drive stuck?

    Hey 68kmla blake here! About a week ago i purchased a 800k external floppy drive for my mac, the guy had said he used it years ago in collage and found the drive while moveing. I knew i was takeing a gamble buying one of these floppy drives but im unshure whats wrong with it. Im pretty positive its old grease but please correct me if im wrong. It seems like when i move the manual eject mechnisim it does not want to go past this point and the leaver up top cant move due to the greese being stuck. Please give me your info on this and the best way to get the greese off i will be replaceing it anyways
  10. Well i just picked up a 1981 ge "flip clock" at the good will and the radio in it seems to be dead so ill pratice on that. Oh and just a quick follow up i poped the logic board back im my macintosh and it turned on, yeay!
  11. Well Ive never done soldering work so ill have to buy a sauter iron. It really dosent seem that trickey tough so hopefully ill be able to recap this board in the next month or so. i just wanted to clean it so it didnt get worse in the mean time while im wating for my parts i know i have to replace them
  12. Well ok thank you if i cant fix my mac classic then ill just sell the memory card for 45$ and get my money back on the computer after all i olny paid 30$ for the computer plus an imagewriter ii and paid 20$ shipping (amazeingly) so it olny came up to 50$. If i cant fix the computer ill give you guys parts for cheep seince they seem to be in good condtion. I also plan on keeping the case to make a macquarium they seem really cool to me.
  13. Recently when i opend my macintosh classic i noticed a expansion card. I tryed to find some info about it but olny found a model that didnt have gold tracks. Do these tracks mean its a higer model? I also have no idea how much memory are on these things so that would help if you told me too. -thanks!
  14. Well, i knew it was un- avoidable but my Mac classic has finally died it just shows white stripes now. I opend up my computer got to the logic board and yes it was leaky capacitors. I just need to know the best way to clean it off some people say to use a dishwasher some other people say with water but I don't know the best way could someone help me find the best way to clean my Mac classic
  15. Well again i inspected all the caps and none seemed to be leaking or buldging so, i dont really think i will need to do any repair or cleaning work for Now. But i think EVERYBODY will have to do it in the next year because it seems like more and more "just used it now i have white lines" are appearing. Also there has been more broken mac classic1s and 2s on ebay than ever. so even tough the caps dont really have a exparition date i think they reached their end last year. Even if you DO a have a mac like mine that somehow still has good caps they will soon have to be replaced as Bib did say "they have probaly failed already or on their last legs".
