CDs will not eject or change and makes a buzzing sound. Check gear on load motor, it splits and shaft spins on it. Use expoy and attach it to shaft. If split is too wide then you must replaced the gear 189099 (Sorry we only have a few left, so no sales of gear only.) Update 12-26-2012. If you or the owner of the unit has pushed the eject so many times it has overheated the motor it maybe bad. Unplug the ribbon cable from the main PCB and apply 9 volts from a battery . It should spin if ok. If this motor is bad nothing will work.
Please do NOT glue the gears to each other!!
Check Q851 2SC2412K could be loose or bad on cd PCB.
Display low and/or CD not working
Power supply save time and change all the caps on the PCB. Must change C24 C27
Q10 was 2SB1142 change to 2SB1136 and turn it around. Have a mod for older pcb.
If after changing the caps the display is still dim, then you need to change the display tube.
