Question about Denon DN-S3500
I was just playing a track then the platter stopped spinning. If i manually spin the platter, it will read the track and will have audio as a regular turntable would if the power was turned off... It will work on "pitch bend" mode though, ( will have audio and everything ) but as soon as i change back to scratch mode, everything stops, where before the platter would start spinning again with no interruption of the track playing. Is there something I could try to fix it?
Sounds like the motor drive controller might be malfunctioning. An authorized Denon service center would have to take a look at it to make sure.

In most cases when the CD does not play it is
possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary
audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head
is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD. If the optical is working
the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be
The main motor will not work in some cases as
unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the
processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the
distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up
the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board
