Re: I killed (or at least killed even more) the FDD in my Tandy 1000TL/2 - questions and replacement needed

If you are lucky it is just a fused-open ribbon cable and nothing else. In this case, manually attach a replacement wire could do the job. Well, checking if the burnt wire still conducts was the first thing I did (and it does). Also the stepper motor which doesn't work is controlled through the PCB …

I killed (or at least killed even more) the FDD in my Tandy 1000TL/2 - questions and replacement needed

In my first computer which I actually bought with my own money I chose to have an AMD K5PR-166 and at the time I thought it was fast. Because it was. Plus it was cool not being an intel.
