Onkyo DR-C500 won't recognize discs

I too have a persistent problem w/ my Onkyo DR-C500 not recognizing the dvds (any of them). Its not the discs. It's the unit. Can anyone help? Mark

    Techman, thanks for your advice. Do you think I can get the spindle motor seperately? I saw somewhere that you could only get the whole carousel assembly for something like $200. Any guess what I should expect a reasonable repair estimate should be for something like this?

    Thanks again,

    Sharky

Onkyo units as well as several other manufacturers have a common problem where the spindle motor gets intermittant or wont come up to speed.Its not hard to replace this motor, but could be a trick to adjust the platter height. Also the unit probably needs a servo alighnment as well. This unit could also have a simple problem as a dirty laser lens. You can try to use a disc lens cleaner to see if that helps. Good Luck

Just bought a brand new Onkyo DX-C390 and it will not recognize cd . No disc when I put cd in disc tray

If it can recognize some discs then that cd may be faulty, or if it is unable to see any discs then that unit has a problem.
You say its brand new, some machines have "transit screws" to remove but I did not see any mention in its instruction book.
So its possible the mechanism or laser unit is faulty or damaged in some way for that I would refer back to where you bought it or the service company for Onkyo, as you will be at risk if you tried to fix it yourself as you will lose out on warranty.

Changer draw does not open?

Hello,
I had the same issue a long time ago and it turned out that the belt that drive the opening mechanism was slippery, Replacing the belt solved the issue.

You may try to gently help the drawer with you hands to see if the belt is only slippery or maybe is completely gone.

DR-C500 problem with turning the system ON

Make sure all power connectors, cords and plugs are inserted securely and that the outlets are in good working order Be sure to select an audio source (CD, AM/FM, etc.) For powered systems, unplug the power pack for a few seconds, and then reconnect it. This allows the unit to reset itself after a power surge or power interruption. good luck!
