Recently bought pdr 555 and seller said it worked just before shipment. When blank disc is inserted, the pdr flashes different CD modes for about a minute then says "check disk". The disk is not spinning. The electronics (amplifier) seems to be working and there is output on the earphone jack with an analogue input.

Please check my tip "Repair for failure to recognize any type of CD for the Pioneer PD-R555RW" in the Tips & Tricks section. It is a hardware repair for apparent failing capacitors, and fixed a problem like this for me.

You can only use Music CD-R with the logo of Digital Audio, no regular CD-R for data will not work with any CD Recordable, it doesn't matter the brand of CDs. Remember that, I have a player like your and Sony, and that's the catch.
That's just a MONITOR indication. It means you can SEE the audio from the selected input on the record level meters for adjustment or other reasons. It won't prevent you from recording. Set your levels then hit RECORD, let it set itself up and calibrate to the disc, start your source and hit Play or Pause to start recording to the disc.
I recently wanted to transfer holiday pictures from my laptop onto a blank disc, which I do by opening a window for 'My Pictures' and then opening 'My Computer' to get to the E drive (where my blank disc is). I click open a window for E drive (which shows it as empty) so now I have both windows open next to each other.
I then select the pictures I wish to transfer and then drag them over to the E drive window onto the blank disc. Then the computer transfers these pictures without a promlem and I am able to view the pictures now on the disc.
But recently it would not do this command. The 'cd writing wizard' would report to me that I needed to insert a blank disc which I had already placed in the tray. I tried different makes of discs, restarted my computer just in case it had a minor glitch, cleaned the laser head, tried different programs to see if anything had change without me knowing about it etc, etc, but to no avail. After much hair pulling, swearing and so on, I tried a program called 'Set program access and defaults' in 'all programs', clicked on 'add and remove program' and saw it was set on 'custom' as default (and will do so everytime I go into this program) then clicked on 'Microsoft Window'. I tried the above again and this time it transfered my pictures to the disc without a problem as it always use to.
NO PC stated dang. laptop or desk? internal DVD drive or external HP solds all 3. NO OS stated. windows? Windows what>????? no real DVD partnumber stated only the usless front bezel number 740. if yours is marked 2001,, its going to be a big problem. 9 years past HP support. and all old drive are weak now or scratched optics. and drives that old were even full of bugs then (we an link you to 10,000 pages showing that)
why not upgrade it.? get a new drive and new fresher OS. windows 10 and a nice new blu-ray burner. and move on. or if this rig (PC) is 2001 why not go to GOODWILL and buy a 2010 PC< for like $25 and i bet it works 10x better.
I had the same problem and found that I was using the wrong type of CDs. If you look on the CD you have to use the CD that says Compact disc digital audio Recordable or Compact disc digital audio Rewrittable. After I used the Digital ones I could record on it. I then tried the CD on the PC and it worked. You can look on the top of the unit and see the information if you still have it. Hope this helps you.
You're probably right to suspect the motor, since its not spinning, and the lens is clean.
I recently had a "no disc" error that was fixed by general mechanic maintnance- taking apart the lens mechanism, cleaning, oiling and putting back together. If youre lucky it could also be your problem, and it should be a minimum repair fee.
