DVD drive doesn't spin up
Posted on 2008-11-13
I have a Philips DVP 5960 set top DVD player. Other than the chincy DVD drive mfd by Sony, it's a very basic and solid device that plays most of the AVI's I can throw at it via the USB drive. The DVD drive however is dead. It makes a buzzing noise but fails to spin the dvd, with a little help (spinning the disc manually, I took the hood off of the player) it will begin to spin but is wobbly and makes a severe grinding noise. The disc is not scratched or being scratched. It seems the motor is dead or dying. I'm looking for options, thoughts, feelings, concerns in this matter.
