Quote from: "pentium"I have a feeling that either the main motor that spins the OD was of bad design or fo some reason the drive can't properly determine what it's current speed is (like driving without a dashboard).In the event of a possible bad motor, we can test that theory by swapping the motor in question with one from a known working drive.When it comes to controlling the speed I don't know how NeXT or Canon designed that. It might be an IC or some sort of sensor (like a tachometer).
Quote from: "gtnicol"I don't think the heatsink would help... the later model canon drives don't have one. It might be worthwhile swapping out, but I'd go through looking for dry joints first.
