FAILURE TO READ DISCS. TECHNICS SL-DV280 (SC-DV280)

I have a Technics Sc-DV280 HI-FI with built in DVD player (SL-DV280). When inserting a DVD/CD disc the laser fails to read the disc. The spindle doesn't always spin up either but when you lightly spin the disc with your finger to get it started the spindle then starts spinning by itself, but the laser still fails to read the disc. Do I need to replace the laser unit and if so where can I purchase on from and rough estimate of price? Do you need to specially align the new laser or is it just a case of plug and play? Also there is a small pcb (approx 30mmX20mm) mounted above the spindle with a small black toggle switch on the underside, any idea's as to what this does? HELP!

If the disc starts to rotate when helped by hand then you definately have a weak spindle motor. dvds spin faster than cds which gives more wear & tear to the motor. i've repaired these faults numerous times. hope this helps?
