Question about Sony CDP-CX225 CD Player
Hi, first time posting here so I'm not sure if I've posted this in the correct place. Anyway my problem is my Philips CDC-751 5cd carousel changer/player suddenly stopped operating two days ago when I went to change a disc. Now the unit powers up but the loading tray inside automatically starts rotating and continues to do so unless the unit is powered off again. When it does this, the rotation of the tray is also accompanied with a grinding noise like maybe a slipping gear cog somewhere in the motor. I've took a look inside but I can't identify the problem. I'm gutted about this as I have had this unit since new for quite some years now (1996) and its never had an issue before and apart from this, the unit is in otherwise great condition for its age inside and out. I didn't plan on finding a suitable replacement for it in the near future and this is totally unexpected. Thanks for any suggestions to the problem.

SOURCE: CD player does not rotate
There could be a couple of reasons. I doubt very much that it is due to the lens. First thought is that it is probably the locking mechanism. If you look at the cd loading mechanism, there is a small plate with a locking tab that moves into place to hold the carousel still when the unit is loading a cd. This plate slides along the bottom of the unit between the cd loader and the carousel.
Secondly, it could be that the carousel is jammed on the rotating platter that it moves on. A couple of screws and it should come out - be carefull not to bend anything!
Thirdly, check the stepper motor that turns it - but I doubt this is the problem either as you said you couldn't turn it by hand either. You will need to remove the carousel to do this.
Good Luck !

I had the same problem and found the cure for it. The drive belt was streched and when it started to close on the disc, the belt would slip and eventually show loading error..The two belts cost $4.50 at belts plus. Hope this helps you
