Re: No spin

Laser spindle motor. Make sure to get one with the same length shaft - will cost $3 or $4 max and a bit of soldering after removing the drive unit.Or if you can't find one, a new complete laser assembly will have a new spindle motor already fitted - price depends on model of laser.

Sony cdp-c215 wont read disc removed cover disc doesn't spin

The pladder motor that spins the disc is open, or the laser pickup is defective, the whole laser assembly would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair cheaper to buy.

Player will not read cd . Cd will not spin

Without me seeing it, it usually cannot read the disc and is caused by a defective, or needs to be adjusted or cleaned, laser assembly as long as it is every cd put in it. It can also be the disc spinner motor. Either one of those is the most likely cause. :)

Clean lense on cd pickup. Remove spin motor. Spray some WD40 in the bottom of the motor and connect 5 volts dc to motor and spin for a few seconds in both directions. The motor brushes need cleaned off. This works on most all cd players. Reinstall the motor.If this does not fix replace cd assy. Check solder connections on volume control. If ok replace control.I had one of these that i sold for $500.00 on Ebay. Even used there is a demand for this item.

Cd player doesn't work

This is doc-fix. The C D motor is supposed to spin spin, at all times when selection. then the C D record makes selection.
in that sequence.
See if motor spins by finger twirl? Is it turn 3,or 4 turns?
if it is binding on the black plastic, then that has to be corrected. if the motor is getting no power (electric power)
then there will be no spinning. need a diagram , showing how
motor power goes into the C D HEAD TO MEASURE VOLTAGE???

My ford mondeo 6X CD Sony is playing up all the time with original c.d's Can you help showing change cd check cd then suddenly works Do i need a c.d. cleaner?

The problem maybe that the drive gear that spins the disc is sticky. I had same problem, take cd unti out remove front facia then remove cradle that locks cd into dash. This give access to 4 screws, remove top lid on cd and temp connect facia and cd back in car load cd and watch to see if it spins up if not spin gently with finger. If it plays ok remove and gently oil between black drive disc and motor. Play cd again hopefully this will resolve problem.
Make sure laser is clean of any oil that may have spun off disc.
Best of luck it worked for me.

try a lens cleaning cd,if this doesnt work is more than likely optic (laser) faulty as laser has to focus first before spinning disc.if it cannot focus disc will not spin..
