Question about RCA RP4010 Clock Radio
When I insert a CD I can hear the unit doing something but it does not spin at all. No display as to condition. I think maybe a drive belt has let go but I can;t figure out how to open the unit. I've taken out the three screws on the bottom but the unit still does not come apart.
Also, where can I find a manual. Thanks.

There are mainly three motors for most of the DVD players. One to spin the disc we insert in, other to load the laser pickup unit to-and-fro inside it to read the disc and an other one to load the tray mechanism 'in-out'. According to your description, the disc spins inside, and you can hear its spin. So motor which spins the disc has no trouble at all I should say. Then comes to the second motor that moves the laser assembly inside it. If it do not work, the laser pickup unit won't move and no reading will take place and 'No Disc' display will be the result. The last chance is with Laser Pickup Unit itself. Just get this unit repaired by any well experienced service technician or by the authorised service center, because, there are special tools to open this unit. As it is a compactable one, more care should be given to it while repairing. Suspect the second motor I described earlier, and the Laser Pickup Unit. OK.

Try by unplug the device from AC power socket, wait for a while, say 10 minutes or so, and replugh it again. This is the first way to reset the device. In most cases, if the fault is due to a general reset problem, this process must rectfy it. If not:
On the front panel of the unit, press and Hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and Hold STOP button, and wait at least three seconds before you release both the buttons. You will need to setup you Menu preferences because this reset procedure will return the DVDs' Menus to the Cactory settings and also erases the contents of the disc library.
If you want anymmore assistance, feel free to get me by Fixya. OK.

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, try a cd cleaning kit and follow instructions, if this fails the whole assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair, cheaper to replace.
