The whole mechinism wont spin. I hear the motor turning but the is no movement of the main housing. I assume it needs a new rubber pully but am not for certain, nor know where i can get one, nor how to instal it?

Re: Player wont Spin all CDs

It mighr be spindle motor failing, possibly salvageable by spraying CAIG DeOXIT into motor and on shaft bearing. Run unit for several minutes to work into bearings.

Wurlitzer 1015 cd player that wont read the cds bot the drive motor spin real fast ???

That usually means the Laser can not pick up the CD surface. I have not worked on Wurlitzer CD but have worked on hundreds of other units and the technology is the same. It could be the platter distance is too far from the pickup or that one of the six laser pickup has burned out to allow correct tracking. There is a Focus OK signal that has to be satisfied first, then spin up and data reading of the TOC. f it can not do that they may spin wildly.

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge

Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

Sony cdp-c215 wont read disc removed cover disc doesn't spin

The pladder motor that spins the disc is open, or the laser pickup is defective, the whole laser assembly would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair cheaper to buy.

When a disc is inserted it spins about 3 revolutions & stops then the message says "NO DISC". So appears to not read or see the disc.

Hi Robert,
First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.You may try the steps below to resolve the issue.
Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. -Sometimes because of dust and any fine foreign objects the optical lens can'tread any disc. If you have a CD Lens cleaner, play it to the unit. If this isnot available you may manually clean the optical lens. Open the cover andgently clean the eye of the lens by smooth,clean,soft cotton buds. Be carefulwhile doing this, just a gentle stroke only.
2.Check the ribbon - Checkthe ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has anopen line then of course the lens can't read the disc, this is because of themovement of the optical lens back-and-forth. Also try to erase the contact by pencileraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then thenext step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and readingthe ohmmeter.
3.Check the spindle motor -Check the spindle motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test itusing the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and itwill spin. Bad motor-reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin or spin slowly.
HopeI helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Hey, Names Dom (Dj Domo) i Spin on the Denon -Ds1000's, it seems Somthing broke inside,what you could say as, The plastic turn table/Turn plate, its used to (Scratch/ Use effects, Etc.) it seems somthing...

if it doesn't spin, the motor spindle contacts are broken, and you'll need to replace the motor, and possibly the whole optical pickup (lens and motor assembly. you might be able to get one from mcm electronics on line, but you'll have to put it in yourself if you don't know anyone who can. you could always contact denon and they'll find the closest service center to you. good luck.

NAD C521 discs not spinning

The CD player has a sensor that is supposed to detect when a disc is inserted and spin it up etc. yours might be the problem, either it has some loose connections (that you haven't noticed) or it simply misbehaves. Another thing could be the motor itself that somehow 'misses' the spin up signal and needs a 'manual' boost. The best solution in your case is probably to bring it to some lab.
