Question about Sony DVP-CX860 Multi-disc DVD Player
Player appears not to be "spinning" the disc. I can hear and see the optical head moving up and down attempting to read the non spinning disk. I've had problems with it reading a disk prior to this and have recently removed and the cover and assemblies within the unit to clean the head and all other dusty parts within. That worked for about 30 more plays or so, all the while the motor that spins the disk was getting louder and louder until it was'nt heard again. And the last time I was able to play a disc. I pretty much conclude what peice may need to be replaced but have no part number or description to go by. I thank you for your time.
The unit probably needs a spin motor. It apppears sony got the lowest bid from Alps ON their spin motors. It needs to work flawlessly in order for the laser and the A/D converter to process digital information. The spin motor itself is relatively cheap. It is the labor that is involved in replacing it that is the real issue. In a multiple disc unit there are timing issues, which sometime can be challenging. In this particular case it would probably be cheaper to replace the unit than to take it to a local service center and get an estimate for $20-40 and tne be told that the unit cost $200 dollars to be repaired. Scrivitron Take the estimate charge and apply it toward the purchase of a new unit. Scrivitron

Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Certain cleaner disks may not work but the best is to cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud, very gently and without pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility that the optical head unit is the suspected fault.
