Question about Audiovox 150W DVD Home Theater System - STS93 System
I have only the player. Assuming I can get compatible speakers, how do I decode the 5.1 sound and power the speakers?
If it does it with all discs then the player is dying. If it is just the one disc I would say it is a bad disc. You can also see if there is dirt or grease or fingerprints on the laser pickup lens.

I have the same problem! The only way to fix this is to replace the motor that spins the DVD. if you take it apart and spin the DVD the movie will play. The motor is just wore out and has no torque to start the play process. I am still looking for a replacement motor for it and haven't found anyone that carries the motor required. Only Audiovox so far and they want 180 to send in and fix.

Probably the spindle motor is defective. Most of the times this is the major couse of htis problem.
The collectors of the motor became internally stuck with dirt.
You can check this by measuring the impedance of the motor by disconnecting the motor and measure the resistance of the motor with an Ohm-meter.(multimeter) . Itshould read somewhere in the 8-14 ohms range. when turning the motor the slightes bit, verry verry slowly (still measuring..) you should always read the same resistance. Only fluctuating a bit when turning but when stopping the turning the resistance should be the same. If not and you measure different value, then the collectors are polluted / filthy.
The answer to this is to either replace the motor, or (takes some more effort and precision) take the motor apart and clean the collectors carefully. THat is a difficult yob but I do this all the time when no new motors are available.
Hope this helps...
