    Default CD not spinning

    Ok technology geniuses, when I insert a cd into my cd player it doesn't spin and doesn't read the disc.

    What is the suggested route of action ?

    they mostly use similar spindle motors, but are fiddly to change if you can find another. getting the correct height etc can be difficult on some. If its a cheapish oldish one its probably landfill. But you never know. Alan might be able to advise if he saw it.

    It won't read if it can't spin the disc so to diagnose that as a laser fault is bizarre.

    First thing I do if this happens is open it up and see if there are any visible issues, something obvious and easily fixed without any skill, experience or technical knowledge. There have never been any so far but I still live in hope.

    potential for a bad connection/broken wire. The really old ones had better metal motors unlike some newer ones that a lot of it is plastic . Brushes usually go.

    JVC made some very high quality players so don't assume that it is a laser issue and don't skip it unless it is a real budget model. If it is then good excuse to get a better one.

    budget cd players are cheap as chips at the mo due to the ahem...vinyl revival.
    my local cash gerarator is swimming with the plasticy facia types.

    having said that, I have a rather fine Cambridge audio CD4..."tuned by pink triangle" it proudly says on the back.....

    its yours for nowt if you can get to Nottingham anytime soon.
