    Techman, thanks for your advice. Do you think I can get the spindle motor seperately? I saw somewhere that you could only get the whole carousel assembly for something like $200. Any guess what I should expect a reasonable repair estimate should be for something like this?

    Thanks again,

    Sharky

Onkyo units as well as several other manufacturers have a common problem where the spindle motor gets intermittant or wont come up to speed.Its not hard to replace this motor, but could be a trick to adjust the platter height. Also the unit probably needs a servo alighnment as well. This unit could also have a simple problem as a dirty laser lens. You can try to use a disc lens cleaner to see if that helps. Good Luck

Changer draw does not open?


Hello,
I had the same issue a long time ago and it turned out that the belt that drive the opening mechanism was slippery, Replacing the belt solved the issue.

You may try to gently help the drawer with you hands to see if the belt is only slippery or maybe is completely gone.

DR-C500 problem with turning the system ON


Make sure all power connectors, cords and plugs are inserted securely and that the outlets are in good working order Be sure to select an audio source (CD, AM/FM, etc.) For powered systems, unplug the power pack for a few seconds, and then reconnect it. This allows the unit to reset itself after a power surge or power interruption. good luck!
