Looked up a service manual for the Commodore 1540/1541 Diskette Drive since another user is facing issues with his 1541-II diskette drive not reading diskettes and throwing an error code 27.

For those who are interested, here you go: http://personalpages.tds.net/~rcarlsen/cbm/1541/1541_Service_Manual (1985).pdf

The manual looked like it was typed up in Microsoft Word and exported as a PDF. Please make sure you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, smartphone, or tablet (even Chrome has a PDF reader built-in, as well as Microsoft Edge).

I don't think it's safe to assume that Commodore used Microsoft Word in 1985... :)

I took a quick glance but didn't read too much. If it's much like the other Commodore service manuals I've used, it should be taken with a grain of salt.
