Question about Sharp GX-CH150 Shelf System

ER message for CD, Sharp GX-CH150

I have a Sharp model GX-CH150 shelf system. It was all working great but now when I try to use the CD player I get a couple of soft beating sounds then ER shows up on the display. It does this on both CD slots and it makes no difference if there is a CD in place or not.

    The disc spins occasionally but not reliably. I managed to clean the lense but it had no effect. I actually had it playing a CD for about 30 seconds but then it went back to having the problem. The problem seems to occur when the playing mechanism switches over to CD #2, once it does that then all bets are off. Even if I can get the carriage to go back over to CD #1 it won't reliably do anything. I have to constantly cycle the power button to 'reset' the whole thing.

The optics assembly is having a problem. Either it can not read the disc at all or the disc is not spinning. In any case, the unit will require service. If you can reach the lens, try cleaning it using a cotton swab and alcohol. That may resolve the problem. If not, update this. Please try to see whether or not the disc spins and report that as well.

    The disc number has nothing to do with the optics assembly. If there was a problem with that portion, you would most likely hear scraping. I'm not sure how much you want to spend on this. The optics will run no more than about $40 or so. Add in the local labor rate for your total repair cost. I'll look up the optics tonight to get a more accurate cost.

Does the cd draw open an close freely? Possible it could be the cd loading belt needs replacing. Its located at the top right side below the mechanism.
