Question about Denon DN-961FA CD Player
The unit will not play a CD in the normal horizontal position. If the front is raised so that it is tilted at about 20 degrees to the horizontal then it works perfectly. Is there a simple solution to the problem?
Sounds like your spindle motor is shot. What happens is, the bushings in the motor that turns the CD disk are worn. So tilting the unit will change the loading of the motor shaft to an " un-worn" spot on the bushings and the CD plays properly. The spindle motors are chepa for the most part, but the labour might bite you a little because it is a fairly involved job. If the unit is still under warranty....great...if it is just off warranty, you may get some good will service from Denon......best of luck...Rob
