Question about Allegro DVD Recorder VCR Combo ABR521
Dvd player does not read the dvd and when it ejects the dvd it comes out spinning, you can see the word reading but that's all
Suggests that the motor regulator IC has problems spinning the disk in a normal way so it will overheat and start to behave in an erratic way - consequentially it may have problems stopping the disk before it ejects.
However, this does not necessarily mean that the IC is bad (far from it), it is just overheating and will usually do so when the spindle motor has oxydized brush contacts - this means that the motor resistance is now higher and that it will not spin at a correct speed with the voltage supplied from the IC.
The electronics will then try to compensate for the speed, but the IC may overheat and start messing up.
Cleaning or replacing the spindle motor might solve the problem, but if the motor can not be replaced because of the unit design and buildup, then this usually calls for the replacement of the entire disk mechanism.
Anyway, this is just one of the possible causes, you might want to try cleaning the laser pickup lens first, but i'm not sure if doing so will make things any better.

This could be due to the speed the DVD was duplicated. or the optical reader may have proper voltage and has stopped reading. this is a power supply issue. The board needs repair.

Some suggestions assuming you know you're using good discs, and have this problem with more then 1 disc. In anything that requires you to open the player and play around in it, I also assume you're not too akward with electronics, and out of warranty: spindle motor problems - you could either fix that by changing the motor, or occasionaly by dropping a little bit of 3 in 1 oil on the shaft. Just dont start it as a hobby if you can still go complain at the store... Good luck
