Hello! This is a great forum. I'm glad I found it.

I have a CLD-D504 that won't play discs. I pulled off the top and took a look. The problem is that the discs won't spin. Everything works except for the spindle. So the motor whines, the laser hopelessly searches, then the disc is spit out: both CD & LD, both side A & B. What I have discovered is that if I manually turn the spindle even a little bit, then click on play, the discs spin properly and the CDs & LDs play. Even the B side switch works. However, if I eject the disc, then click on play again, the motor whines and doesn't spin up. I'm hoping this is an easy fix. What are your thoughts?

My guess is it needs a new spindle motor, which I don't consider an "easy fix". I lot of that era players had bad spindle motors (I had an Elite series that had the motor replaced under warranty).

If it spins up if the disc is turning then it is either the start windings in the motor but also an equal chance it is the power supply. The decision you have to make now is are you attached enough to it to repair it as you can probably buy another cheaper.

Did you ever get a response to this. I have just turned mine on after approx 18 months and got the same message. I have to unplug it to clear it, but as soon as I turn it on again I get the same Mega CPU message.

I normally just open the players and manually run them thru an open cycle.
