I have no experience with your Arcam model nor does it seem 26 others who read your thread and amazingly did not welcome you to the wonderful world of the DIY Audio forum


Presumably it's just started out of the blue......or have you been making modifications ?

You need to download the service manual from the net and begin understanding the layout and workings of it.
I've been trying to do this for over a year on my Arcam Alpha and it can get tricky but with some help from the more patient and knowledgable members it can eventually make sense.

When my disc spins out of control it's usually because I forgot to do something with clock connections or the SAA7220 chip power feed has failed.
With your layout it may be something different but I suspect the whole CD process is similar.

I'd be surprised if no one has your machine on this forum and a rare samaritan may surface to offer proper advice.

Don't hold your breath though - this place sucks sometimes and seems to have it's fair share of absolute a..holes who only talk to you if you already know what your talking about and slap you down or ignore you if you don't.

Don't worry - being ignored here is quite normal - happens to me all the time
and..... there are more receptive forums if all else fails
I posted a few days ago on a CD problem I had and got one reply - many people read it........
I got my answer in 20 minutes from another forum.
I rest my case

There are nicer and seemingly more knowledgeable people elsewhere
