Question about Yamaha DVD-S1500 DVD Player
My DVD player won't stop spinning. The display nor any of the buttons will work. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, and the disc continues to spin. The DVD player is totally unresponsive.
please check you TV color system. you are not using the right color frequency. if your TV has got an auto color region select then set it to auto. otherwise, select the TV color mode until you get the right color frequency

When it is region lock it will say it on the display, if the player is not reading any disk, it is more likely a lens problem, see below:
Try first using a lens cleaner disk, like the ones here.
If that does not work, the unit must be disassembled, and lense cleaned with q tips and isopropyl alcohol or cleaning solution. See below:

When a DVD player starts doing that,
it either needs to be cleaned, or something is going wrong with the
DVD mechanism inside of it. You can purchase DVD lens cleaner from
any large retail store that has an electronics section. However, if
you clean it and the problem persists, it will likely be cheaper to
replace the unit rather than trying to have it repaired unless you're
under warranty in which case any repair or exchange will be covered
by said warranty. If you call the manufacturer they will give
you your full range of options.

The problem sounds like the spindle motor is about to go out completely. If a disc does not spin or does not spin at it's proper speed the optical lens reading laser can not read the disc and you get a "no disc", or "disc not recognized" error message. On average a dvd will spin 3 times faster than a regular cd will. The following pictures will show you what these components look like.
Check around your local area to find what a service technician will charge to replace the part. On average it will usually cost between $60-90 dollars most of which is labor.
I hope this gives you some idea of what the problem is and how to solve it.
If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
