    Default Amiga CD32 dead disc drive

    So, my CD32, after working fine for a few months, has freakishly and spontaneously stopped working.

    When I turn it on, the bios screen comes up without a problem. When I close the disk door you can hear the lazer moving but discs don't spin.

    I contacted Old School Gamer about this but he felt he couldn't reliably repair it due to lack of experience with the machine.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks guys!

    Clean the laser lens is always a first good starting point.

    Then check to see if its firing.
