Question about Harman Kardon Televison & Video
I have a 2 year old Harman Kardon DVD 23 player with the following problem:
Once the unit is switched on, or when a DVD/ CD is inserted, the spindle motor does not start and the displays stays at "reading"
When I push eject and give the spindle some turns by hand, the unit works fine for another couple of days.
Now I am wondering if I should replace the motor ? (mechanical issue ?) or if there is anything in the motor supply/ drive circuitry which
causes the motor to not start intermittenly ?
I have an electronics background, but I have not been able so far to download any service manual or diagrams for this player.
Is there anyone who recognizes this problem ? Could it be the same phenomena as the issues with the DVD 22's capacitors, as mentioned in this help section ?
Thank you very much for any hints and tips to resolve this problem.
With kind regards,
Since the manual turn of the spindle starts the motor, I feel that the problem may be mechanical. so check the belt and wheels for any defects. Weak capacitors can also cause spinning trouble for the motor. Check the above parts and replace if required.
I hope this will solve your issue.
If my solution proves useful please accept it.
