Toshiba SD-3980 "purring"
I guess it's a wonder this unit is still running given the problems people have reported on it. The problem I'm having is that the motor makes a "purring" noise when there's a disc in the player. It's something I can live with, but if anyone has any hints on how to quiet it down, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Replace the motor???

Likely the ribbon cables need reseating .. Unplug then replug them.
Possibly the CD tray is somehow jamming.. check for obstructions and re-lube.. sparingly.

Where and with what do you relube the tray rail?

Just wanted to post that I finally got around to reseating the ribbon cables and the noise is now gone.
