Hi all
I have amiga 500 not used for a while bought 1080 upscale pugged in amiga all good
Sat down armed with zip stick to enjoy speedball 2 on HD tv but the drive didn’t click and the disc didn’t spin
Some weeks later a new disc drive arrived parts for amiga hard to get in Australia so ordered from uk
Put the new drive in to the console and it didn’t click or spin again
I can’t think both drives are faulty... there had been nothing wrong with the computer when I packed it away but it seems something has gone wrong
Was thinking of getting an external drive but concerned that there is something in the computer that is wrong and not sending the message to spin the floppy
Any ideas would be welcome
Incidentally I contacted a pc repair shop here in Darwin who didn’t want anything to do with it so depending on some help please

No problems with voltages .. the amiga was working fine. Put away for a year or so and then just didn't work
extra disappointing as I had just bought Lemmings to play on it
