The player isn't dead, the tray opens and closes, but the cd doesn't rotate or isn't read. Before committing to a repair I would like to get closer to an identification of the problem, such as the motor, its control, or the laser. Is this possible and if so, any suggestions would be welcome.

turn on the unit and then tried to press the play button while the cd tray is in place. if doesn't work, unplug the dvd player then open the cover to access the internal part. look for a broken limit switch for cd tray mechanical assembly or check weather the cd not in proper place in the tray that is why an error occur.
The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped. The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely. The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.
Rea alligning cds is not hard, but not too easy,the best way is to remove the whole cd changer mechanism and allign it to either one point,while totally disconnected, fully open or fully closed. I mean, the rubber or gear mechanism.
The main point of reference is the nearest part driven by the main motor. For example decide to do it when fully open, arrange everything so as to allow the tray to be fully open.If you get everything right, rotate the motor manually and see if it closes the tray without jamming..If it gets fully in keep rotating the motor and see if it loads the disc.if it does, return the assembkly, the sensors and the cd computer will take over from there ...
I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.
If you had any cds inside, you can open the case and see whether there's any cd jammed, with the power switch off! If you didn't have any cds inside, open the case anyway and check if the tray opens or not!!!
