Floppy light on Constantly

By qhcomputingny ·
Does anyone know the solution to fix a problem I am having with my floppy light remaining on all the time. It seems to be staying on constantly. Is it a connection mismatched?
Thanks
Eddie

I think it obviously is a connectoin missmatch...punch the guy that installed it and get somebody else to do it.

The Floppy cable needs to be turned to the oposite way.

Yes, that's it exactly. Just disconnect the cable from the floppy drive, rotate it 180 degrees and reattach it.

just as a quick techie note:
Pin 1 on the floppy most times is facing the power connector, in other words its almost always close to the power, rather than the other side. 99.9% of the time
