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?

Why compact disc player model#cafsm3 will not read and play cd/door error

The door close mechanism is linked mechanically to the CD read mechanism .unless the door close signal is relayed satisfactorily ,the CD will not play .get it checked by an authorised person and don't do it yourself since the laser from the lens is harmful .

Pioneer PD-M551 cd changer won't play cds 2 thru 6.

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.
