I took the turn-table back to the Audio electronics store I bought it from, they sent it to a repair person in Fresno, CA. The repair person called me and said the "Motor Was Frozen". How can that be when I have used the equipment 5 times?

it sounds like the instrument has a defective power button.
it still under warranty, contact the store where you purchased it. If
the store is an authorized repair facility, they can take steps to
fix it on their dime, or send it to Yamaha if needed.
it's out of warranty you can replace it yourself if you're an
If you're not, go into it knowing that you may damage all of the
electronics. This will not be covered under the warranty.
I barely know an electron from a crayon. So if you're like me, find
an audio repair tech, or a music
store that works on electronics. Get a few hourly labour rates and an
idea of their part prices. Then call around, get a few quotes- they
may differ a bit.
Either way, you'll be able to turn it on, press the keys, make music.
And that's the most important part.
try taking the ice-maker unit out of the freezer and see if the micro-switch inside it has frozen on the crush setting or if you can't get to the guts just leave it out for a few hours, wipe it dry, then put it back in and try again. If it still won't switch over your going to have to call a repair tech since it's nothing you can repair personally.
This model uses a single "Surround/Sound" circuit board. All of them go bad---probably why he was using a surround sound system for the audio.
Board part number is: X480242 and it is no longer available from Hitachi---the only way you can get it fixed is to remove the board in the set and have it sent out for rebuild--company is PTS electronics--they repair/rebuild all kinds of boards.
Considering the cost for repair/rebuild is almost 200 dollars it may be smarter just to do what the other person did--get an inexpensive surround sound and get the audio that way.
I worked on a lot of these sets with this problem--some brand new ones were bad this way--
With the back off of the set you will see on the far left wall (as you look from the back) the Surround board--it is not hard to remove (several plugs and a few screws).
This was in my view a design flaw--the board is full of surface mounted IC chips and several are mounted near the audio output IC---heat from the output chip over time causes all kinds of bad solder connections.
I saw one tech in a shop where I worked spend three hours trying to resolder one of these boards (special soldering for surface mounted parts etc) and the board still did not work right.
That board got sent out for rebuild and worked fine after. Lots of these have problems where when cold or hot sound problems come or go.

I had avery similar problem with my radio. At first I would lose audio but it would eventually come back. Then I lost it for good. I replace the radio and that work for a bit and then replaced the speakers and they worked for a bit. Eventually no audio. I took the radio and speakers back to the tech who installed them and he found a short in the speaker wiring to the passenger speakers. He installed a jumper around the short and the new radio and speakers worked fine. Then I had him put in the original raidio and speakers and have had audio ever since.
check the speaker terminals for dc, it should be very low,about 100 mV or less, it it is higher you need to find the pots that adjust dc offset to get it down.Also you can compare voltages with the opposite channel to find abnormalities.
If you just bought it, By all means return it! Otherwise call sansa tech support. The're rather good for tech suppport people. If you bought an extended warranty, the place you bought it from should replace/repair it and you troubles will be over!
Knocking the bottom of the lens end of the camera 3 times on a wood table, medium gentle, fixed a zoom error (where it would not focus in zoom) The camera had been dropped whilst skiing holiday and this method fixed it. Very Happy!.
