Be sure to do the battery removal, if you have them. Probably don't on that machine, but removing them is really good advice.

If you have the older single sided floppy, the felt pad is probably missing. You can replace it with a felt pad from the hardware store; they are used for no-scratch feet and are not hard to find. Be very careful of the delicate little plastic parts in the drive. They will be very
brittle and break easily.

And I heartily agree-don't power up any more than you have to. If your power supply is going to fry, that's when it will go. (If you hold down the Apple key when you hit the power button and use the environments window to restart, you can avoid some power cycling.)

(BTW I will be completing the power supply repair guide as time permits. It needs pictures and instructions for building a test jig.)

Be kind to Lisa; she's an old lady. :-)
