Up for grabs is a yellowing 1541-II unit with the following fault: -

when you switch on both front drive lights come on, but the drive just continues to spin and never 'initialises'. This happens whether or not the drive is connected to the C64.

Thecorfiot and Demolition (to name but 2 super folks on here - thank you all), seem to think it's either faulty chip(s) or faulty psu. Either way, I cannot afford repairs/replacements guys so what I'm proposing is all of the gear below is yours for £30 and you can make the best of what's here.

Postage will be extra - UK courier should be about a fiver - overseas - please PM for details.

Pictures of 20 random 'blank' 5.25" disks thrown in; Power Hits 4 disk compilation; GEOS Desktop and CBM Demo/Test disk; Mindbenders (2 disks) plus Ocean goodie bag (Night Moves - 4 disks with manual) are also included. I've no idea if they load with the drive playing up, so sold as is.

Paypal gift would be great - so please drop me a PM if you are interested.

Thanks for looking and all the best.

Cheers, Roy.
Payment received and courier has your email address for shipping info - let me know if you need me to chase them up.

All the v best with this project, Roy - if anyone can get the brute working...

leaving feedback for this now,thanks bud.

i had a quick look when it arrived and its not the power supply,ill have a closer look inside the unit when i get a chance.
thanks again.

i could let you know how i get on with this via pm if you like?
checking the disks is easy ill do that later i have a 1541.(although they are a bonus to me)
ill also make a head vibration protector for it as well i think there pretty easy to make.
