AIWA CD Player

The CD player will not spin on my AIWA #CA-DW550 combo AM/FM, Cassette, CD Player.  The monitor lights up and all other functions play (Radio & Cassette)  Please advise on how to repair and jump start the CD Player.

Sorry, but the spindle motor,

Sorry, but the spindle motor, or the laser assembly is bad in this unit. If all the other functions work, i highly doubt if there is a power supply problem. I am thinking though that the laser assembly is bad, because before a CD player or a DVD player will spin, The laser unit has to focus on the disc, and then it will spin. Some models of Aiwa CD players did however have bad spindle motors.  If the laser is bad, buy a new unit, because between the parts and the labor, it will run you very close to what a new unit will cost. Good Luck

I appreciate your comments re

sounds like a problem with

sounds like a problem with the focus or tracking servo. Could even be as simple as dirt or grime on the lens. We get that all the time with cd jukeboxes in bars and restaurants try cleaning the lens first really well with denatured alcohol
