Durabrand CD-109 Stops

Using the switches to select cd player, and inserting a cd; the unit begins to spin oncethe lid is closed. The unit spins for maybe 10 to 15 seconds then stops. The idiot lights on the front panel go from the double zeros to the two horizontal leds, comes to a stop, and the two zeros light back up on the display. smells like a burnt capacitor.

Cd wont play it picks up an goes around but wont play need to know what to do

It sounds that the optical pickup unit to your player is faulty. Open the top cover of the player, power it ON and insert a CD in to. Check whether the inserted CD loads well into the mechanism and spins. If do not spins, sled motor is faulty. If it spins, optical pickup unit should be replaced.

I load the CD put I don't hear it spinning at all

No it isn't, because your switch isn't tripping when you close the DVD. Try holding the lid down with your hand and listen for spin. If your DVD starts spinning you will need to locate the plastic pin protruding from your lid and extend it with superglue and a piece of cardboard. This will make up for the warp in your lid, and allow the switch to close.

Durabrand model won't play

A friend of mine has one of these, and the same thing happened. Toss in a CD, and the unit reads it, but doesn't play it. Looking at the CD components, all appears to be well, and I was even able to trick the unit into turning on using a paper clip to hold down the "lid closed" switch.

What I found the issue to be was with the lack of downward or clamping pressure the CD was getting with the lid closed. If you notice, with the lid open, there is a round part that "floats" and serves two is to align the CD and keep it steady, and the other is to grip it, as the CD's do not snap into the lower centering piece, but rather just sit on it.

I solved the problem by placing a rubber o-ring on it, The one I used is about 1/16" (1mm +/-) and about 1 inch (25mm) diameter. I used some rubber cement to attach it to the top piece. I'm not sure how long this will hold, but it's worth a shot. I figure keeping a CD in the tray will help keep the ring in place as well.

Good luck!

My Shanling CDT200 CD player does not spin when I put the down lid or press play. Can you please help? The problem began by first what sounded like a clicking sound & interrupted play. The player is...

This is the case in most CD Players. . .

when you close the lid, it will try to read the CD.
If it recognizes and reads the cd, the cd will spin-up.
If not, it would say no disc.

try to clean the cd-player's lens by using a commercially available lens cleaner. if it still persists, it need a new optical mechanism.

CD-ROM won't spin up

When the CD drive doesn't detect a disc or can't read a optical disc, it stops spinning. Perhaps you need a new CD drive or Lens needs cleaning.

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P

I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

NAD CD 5425 - No Spin - Sometimes

I've dealt with this type issue quite a bit.
Believe it or not the drawer belt needs to be changed.

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.
