Commodore 64 disk drive repair?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here service Commodore 64 disk drives? I picked one up this weekend along with many games/disks at an estate sale. The Commodore works great but not sure about the disk drive. It responds but doesn't seem to read the disks.

First thing to do is clean the drive heads and possibly lubricate the rails the head rides on.

Is there a guide or tutorial available online that shows how to do this?

I figured it out on my own. Turns out, the belt was slipping. Thanks google and YouTube! I turned the belt inside out and all works as it should.
