Hello

Problem is that I have two CDTV mainboards. One that works, but will not spin the drive at all.
Another one that has some corrosion around Agnus after some spill thru vent holes, on this mainboard the machine gives a green screen, but the CDrom spins.

I have one good drive, the other drive has a torn ribboncable to the lens.

I think that I have one good drive, but I want to fix both boards and then I would like to have another lens to fix the drive with a torn ribboncable.

I think that there is a problem with the mainboard itself on the one that does not spin the drive. Not sure where to start. I have swapped all Custom chips to no avail.

Hello

Found the lens with a little different cable "layout", will try to modify the cables.
I also ordered some capacitors to do a full recap of them both.

Did the recap help? My CDTV drive stopped spinning up tonight.
