    Have a sony 5 disc of the model mentioned above that won't play. When the
    discs are in, it cycles through them and won't recognise any of them. Took
    it apart to see what was going on and it appears the discs are mounting
    okay, but the player turns them at a slow, intermittent pulse, and then
    gives up (no disc). I manually sped the rotation up (with my finger) and
    then it seems to be able to read the disc (time of the disc comes up).

    Is this just a spindle motor problem, or something else? And are there any
    ideas where I can find a replacement part in Canada?

  2. Sounds as if the spindle motor may be shorted internally. Not an uncommon
    problem. The short can sometimes be cleared by spraying cleaner/lubricant
    into the slits at the bottom of the motor, aimed at the brushes, while
    turning the motor, blowing out the debris and excess lube with compressed
    air, and repeating til the short is cleared.

  3. I'd bet more on an aging slipping belt or sticky bearings. Clean the
    belt in alcohol and see if that helps. If it does, get a new belt.

  4. A slipping belt for a disc playing problem? The only regular rubber belt in
    that unit rotates the carousel to change discs. The other belt moves the
    tray in and out, and is a gear-belt. The disc motor is a Mabuchi
    permanent-magnet DC direct-drive type.
