    Similar problem, the CD does not spin. Spin motor and connections are ok, but drive comes from a Mitsubishi M56758 (5 channel actuator motor driver). Could this chip be responsible, or whatever is driving this? The same chip is presumably used for the tray drive, the tracking motor and the lens focus system. These are all working ok on my unit.

SOURCE: Hello I have a Pioneer XC-L11

It is most likely that the laser pick up is bad. That is the part that reads the disc and is the most common reason. You can try a lens cleaning disc to see if it just needs to be cleaned, but if that does not work you will need to take it in for service. This problem can be caused by several different things, from the spindle motor (spins the disc), to the pick up (reads the disc), or even an IC that controls one of those things. Once you have cleaned the lens, you can also try cleaning the disc's. If a disc has a fingerprint or scratch in the area of the disc that is know as the TOC (table of contents), it will not read the disc. Fingerprints in other areas of the disc will cause the player to skip or even stop playing. I use windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel to clean the disc's, it works as good or better than the disc cleaning kits you can purchase, and it is much cheaper.

If none of this helps, it has a problem that only a trained technician can figure out with the proper test equipment. Then you must decide if it is worth getting fixed. Some service centers offer free estimates, but those are the ones that don't actually check your equipment first before giving an estimate. They just give you a ballpark figure that is usually pretty high. To get an acurate estimate you normally have to pay for it. A technicians time is worth money, my shop charges $25 for an estimate.That is pretty cheap. Some are as high as $65 for an estimate. But if you are paying for an estimate, they will normally at least troubleshoot the unit and determain just what the problem is, compared to a free estimate which is just a guess and a ballpark figure usually high to cover the cost no matter what the problem is. You may also end up paying much more for a repair when you get a free estimate, because you have already approved that amount, and many shops will charge you that much even if they find a simple problem that only takes 30 minutes to fix.

Replacing a pick up normally cost about $125 to $150 because the part can sometimes cost as much as $75.

I hope this was helpful for you and lets you make an informed decision. let me know if you need any more help.

SOURCE: I have a Sharp CD-BA2650

There is a belt inside the cd changer that needs to be replaced. Once yo utake the top off the unit you will need to turn the unit on again and open the try. Once it is open look at the back area where the motor is located and you will find it under a circuit board. You need to lift the motor up by pushing the plastic clips that hold the board in place and pull it up a little and you will see how the belt is on the pully. It is very hard to describe how to do this in a forum like this, but if you are careful you should be able to do this.

The part number for the belt is:

92LBE231616

You can get the belt here:

SOURCE: The tray of my pioneer XC-L77 does not open when i

Just found your post - did you get a solution? I have already put mine into Pioneer once before and had it fixed. Now it is gone again. I am assuming it is a belt drive or something like a little fuse but haven't opened it up for a look yet.

ITS cd tray is revolving when we press insert button . tray moves inward and it do't select any cd .and tray comes out again. main problem is it do't select any cd


You have a slack loading belt under the tray.The loading action is not being completed because of it.
The Cd lifting mechanism requires more torque than the tray rotating action. If you put your ears close to the tray you will hear a belt slipping sound after the loading tray goes in . If you push the disc motor assembly with your hand from underneath the action sometimes get completed and the cd will start playing. Any way you cannot be doing this all the time, the belt needs changing. Its a set of two belts, one very small for the tray rotation and a thicker/bigger one for loading mechanism.

DVD tray makes noise when it rotates


This noise can be casued by two things:

1) The tray is not completely in the loaded position and the "clamper" is rubbing. Replace the loading belt and the loading sequence will complete and the noise should stop.

2) The "CD table" that is part of the spindle motor assembly has slipped a bit. This will make the CD/DVD ride too low and strike the lower tray support. This will require that the table be "re-aligned" to the proper height which may not be possible on your model without special measurement equipment. The height is critical to proper operation of the unit.


Try replacing the load belt first and report your results.

Thanks,
Dan

Pioneer PDR-W839 Jammed Disc Changer (previously posted)


hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.

Carousel does not rotate from one cd to the next


I just had the same problem with my parents dx-c206. I first found the motor drive unit with quite a bit of dismantlement, the drive circuitry is under the turntable as well for the drive motors. Once in the drive motor unit, the associated circuitry is clearly seperated on the circuit board between the drive and the actual cd spin motor and laser circuit, I checked all the voltages to common and all seemed fine, I then discharged the caps, and it then by itself started to spin again, it still has a few glitches, that it might freeze, could have been also a faulty cap. Real reason is unsure, this was a lucky fix... I did also remove what I presumed is a coil sensor unit that is also located under the turn table, once the small rectagular circuit board is removed u will find two U shaped (presumed magnetic sensors). I dought that any cleaning I did fixed this, but this could possibly have been infra red sensors, that would requirer some cleaning. These sensors are responsable for the turntable positioning.
