My friend has a Kn6500. It has not been used for a year or so. The disk drive still turns but no message is shown.

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Hi John,had some fun with my Disc Drives that have stood,I first tried a cleaner disc,low priced from any computer store,try that first.If that does not help the problem come back to me. In between time I will check up on the self test mode for the Kn6500 to see if the problem in electronic,I had that with my KN7000 and found the drive had died but I found a replacement for under 15 GBP.
Regards John.D

I completely agree I thought my KN7000 disk drive was a gonner because I hadn't used it for a few years but a disk drive cleaner brought it back. Took many goes though, I reckon I ran it 40 times.

Thanks for both posts. I used a cleaner and I began using the keyboard each day, and like you said; it is now working fine.

Thanks again. John C.
