I have 5 disc changer that will revolve but wont play disc just keep running.
What you hear running may be a fan, a motor that spins the CD, the motor that moves the head in & out, or the motor that turns the turntable.
I suspect on something that old, the motor that spins the CD may be worn out. Place 1 CD in position and make note of the exact position of the words on the CD, let the player go through all 5 positions and see if the CD is still in the exact position that it was when you started. If this is the problem there's usually no easy way to fix it.
If the turntable doesn't turn, then it's that motor or a possibly a belt that no longer works.
There is also the possibility that the read head is no longer moving in and out smoothly, you'll have to take the unit apart and re-grease the slides with light lithium grease.
The read head being dirty or too dusty is another possibility, but even less likely. When you get it apart, clean the read head with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol, anything harsher might damage the components.
