I just received from Ebay a Sega CD 2. When I connected it up to my Genesis 2, plugged in both power cords and hit the power button I see on the tv the Sega cd screen with music playing. A message on screen says to insert a cd. No matter what cd I try (Sega cd or music cd) I get a message after a few moments to push start. I push start and now I'm looking at a screen that looks like a cd player (start,stop,forward buttons,etc) with the message to insert a cd. I decided to disconnect everything (what do I have to lose at this point) and remove the screws from the bottom of the cd player. Upon watching it function while opened carefully with the sega genesis connected and power reconnected, I noticed that the disc does not spin at all. If I move the laser lens manually away from the disc I can hear it moving back into place all the while the disc sits idle. Could the motor that spins the cd be bad? How hard is it to find this part? Has anyone taken one of these apart and fixed it? Most of the problems that I read in regards to this model seem to do with a fuse. I can't see how this fuse is bad on my unit as it's powering up but not spining the disc.
Any advice would be appreciated.
