Looks there is some dirt or dust at this position. Remember the blade-like thing that reads the disk is STATIC and - afaik - does not move around.

Do clean this thing (Q tips and a little bit (!) of isopropanol solution did the trick; just imagine the cleaning of cassette heads ). Yes, I know that it's extremely annoying as it's a lot of dismantling and fiddling, but yet, I am happy I went through it with my A1000 internal drive.
