Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders
It may be a dirty lens or a seized spin motor. If you can hear the disc spinning, then it's likely the lens.
If you feel confident in opening it up (unless it's under warranty), then you just have to find the disc drawer and observe it with a disc in it (since you don't need a laser burning your eyes out, BE VERY CAREFUL). If you can see the laser's moving around on its track and the disc is spinning, then it's likely a dirty lens.
To clean a dirty lens, you'll need rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. Dab a little bit of alcohol onto the Q-tip, wiping it a little until it's just barely damp. Gently rub that against the lens, being careful to not break the mountings it rides on. When you think you've covered the whole surface, use the dry end to soak up any excess and then try running that disc again.
If this still doesn't work, then your lens might be fried altogether. In this case, either find an identical laser (or the entire drawer and motors and all) or scrap it.
If it's under warranty/exchange policy, then just go that route instead.
