Isn't there a relay that needs to be closed? I think that is the one Erik van Voorst made a long stick to close it with. You can try closing it with your finger and see if that gets the motor spinning.

Thanks Dantwomey!

And where would that be?

No relay, but there is a limit switch right by the capacitors and adjacent to the motor. The bottom of the sled has a "feature" which hits the switch at end of travel. I have a hard time believing that it will not spin up unless that switch is open. (Mine immediately parks in such an instance.) How about the door switch? Loose connection? Something else going on?

I'd like to join the long list of people thanking PD for sharing this little gem with us. The Shigaclone has raised the bar in my system as high as it's ever been. I'm thoroughly enjoying going through my CD collection again.

Regards,
Dan

Hi I saw you foto's of your own CD-Bunker very cool

I WOULD DEFINATELY TEST YOUR SUSPENSION BY EAR IN THAT BOX SOFT OR HARD....to fully enjoy all your box-work

About your motor...that must be something simple...eg maybe one of the wires not proper connected or broke ...did you check the voltage before attaching the motor to the wires...

Maybe try a spare boombox (for your stock laser) and fool around with that....I find that very beneficial for solving problems......

Clearaudio I have e-mailed you

Today I spend a few hours experimenting with MDF to start
building a prototype a-la Kalista Metronome...

This way I get familiar with problems so later on I can proceed with copper etc...

Question no digital out

Hello everybody
My first post in this thread so I hope that you will excuse me for taking your experiences and silently, if imperfectly implementing them. But now I have hit a snag. I have built a reasonable attractive transport out of oak and ali. It spins up,I can control it, it will output through it's own dac ( pretty bad sounding ) but seems to have no output at spdif. Pin continuity is fine. I have not had a really easy ride with this board as everybody will have found how fragile they can seem and myopia and the tea time thirst can make things difficult. IS there a mute function that I have activated? If it is ouputting to it's own dac then there must be output that I can tap. Very odd and I have yet to hear the promise of this transport which is very frustrating.
Help!!!
