Question about Audio Players & Recorders
This problem just started. I have to spin the drive motor in my cd player to get it to work. The problem is increasing. It may or may not work. A simple problem that may make me have to buy a whole new cd player if it is not repaired.
You can replace the spindle motor to resolve the problem. It is quite a common fault. A quick fix that sometimes holds, is to remove 1 only of the 2 mounting screws from the top by coming in at an angle with a jeweler's screwdriver(if you are lucky the platter may have an access hole), and put a quick squirt of CRC 2-26 into the motor using the straw that fits to the cans nosel(if you don't have the straw, a syringe will do), enough to "flood" it, but not enough to get it everywhere. Then fire the unit up and put it in play mode-repeat track 1, this spins the cd at the highest speed and cleans the commutator and brushes enough to get the motor back to serviceability again. Removing the motor completely and running it on the bench using 6-12 volts for 10 mins and then reverse direction is even more effective. If you pull the spindle platter off the motor, be sure to measure with a steel ruler the deck height it sits at so as to reinstall it to the exact same height will also Good luck with your repair. A FixYa rating for this techo know how would be great thanks :)
