CD player stops to read disk two and nothing happens and won't play cd's
When I insert a CD into any cd slot, I close the door, and it reads the cd slots. If I select three, it'll read three first then cycle through one and two. If I select one it'll read disk one then cycle over to disk two.
In any case, once the player gets to disk two, itacts like it's reading the cd but the cd is not spinning and it won't let me play either one or three while it's stuck on disk two.
I've tried hitting the reset button but it still gets hung up on cd two when I try to use the cd player.
Everything else seems to work fine.
Is it a blown disk 2 motor or is it something else?
If it is a blown motor, will it be cheaper to buy a new unit or will it be worthwhile to buy a new one?

Thank you, Mark Z! My Pioneer PD-M551 would just stop reading the CD, usually near the end of the 4th or 5th disk, and then sometimes it wouldn't read any disks or maybe only the first one or two. I observed that the white ribbon cable was most contorted near near the end of the 4th through 6th disk (also discovered the disks are read proceeding from the center outward, unlike vinyl records). I unfolded the ribbon, massaged it and left it loose and unfolded and that fixed it (at least, temporarily). The PNP-1343 ribbon cable from Pioneer costs $11 but with shipping and handling it is over $30 so I haven't bought it yet.
A CD tray is usually powered by a rubber strap, the belt can slip through, causing the electronics to miss the input timing, including a microswitch or copper contact which is activated at the closed disc tray so that the laser is focussed to read the table of contents Due to the fact that the spindle motor is activated. And in some players (interchanges there is also a selects witch that can be contaminated. a suggestion to help in the link How to Fix DVD or CD Player That Won Open
When the lid is closed on your player there is a little switch that is activated (closed) letting the player know you have inserted a disk and you're ready to jam out. Sometimes they are fairly easy to find and sometimes they are located in places that aren't so easy, like in the hinge. For the most part, there will be a hook- like piece extending from the lid of the unit which, when closed will activate the switch on the other half of your player. If you can find this hole where the hook goes into, check to see if it is making contact by taking a tooth pick or something similar ( nothing metal !! ) and activating the switch manually with a cd inserted.
When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks?
If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD.
If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD.
