    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.

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:

I hope this helps, if so a FixYa! rating would be appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering people like yourself this free help.

Let me know if I can be of any more help.

Looks like a problem with the indication panel which is a fixed 'all-in-one' unit and probably needs a bit of soldering to rectify a few dry joints! More likely your very friendly repair man down the street will tell you he'll send off for a new unIt which he can replace for you at a 'smaLL' FEE!

That sounds like a problem that needs professional service. The door may have jumped a gear, or there could be a circuit malfunction. At any rate, it's probably cheaper to buy a new DVD player. CD and DVD technology are quite precarious still, and I wouldn't expect more than a couple years service from most DVD players.

On the first board (where the power enters) there is a tall 3 pronged switch, if you turn the board over and solder a piece of wire to the 2 outside prongs, you will find that the Amp works normally apart from that the display reads Cd closed when in Cd mode.

Then it may be a registration problem - the changer has to know what position the tray is in so that it can play the correct cd - often there is a foil connector that gets damaged or an opto coupler that goes faulty.

Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman
