Hi,


I purchased a new 6128 and did a drive belt change and put in a self made write enable pin (the original one was already missing).


The drive now works flawless.


But one thing I do not remember from the past is, that the drive activity LED is always on (very dim light), like it is not fully turned of.


I have a EME-156 drive in it. So my questions: Is that normal? It is one of the cost down drive implementations in the later models.


It is a Schneider CPC6128, heavily shielded ... wow never seen that :-)

That's perfectly normal. The LED should always be dimly lit and brighter when accessing a disk.
