I can see at least one radial capacitor that should be replaced in them though. I'll update this when I have more info on the floppy drives.
Quote from: kinmami on June 07, 2012, 10:09:52 PMabout the 3.5" floppy drivers, I'd like to comment that on the main board there are 3 capacitors of 10uF 10V and 1 capacitor of 47uF 6.3V.In my case all of them, on both units, had a massive leakage.Since those capacitors are located in parallel to the main power lines, in order to suppress spikes while the motors are operating, I do kindly suggest to replace with ceramic ones (low ESR, tiny size 2012/0805, X5R or X7R, 10V, of course not polarized).Meanwhile WD40 will help to make the mechanism smoothly moving as well.
