Did I kill my Philips CD-60?

I replaced it because my unit had a problem, and I had read that this cap causes trouble.
The original blue cap had the gray stripe closer to the edge of the PCB, so I oriented the new cap's green stripe the same way.

Please read the entire service manual. I've generally found them to be well written and useful.

Does it have debug flowcharts? The one I used had to be done in sequence.

It may be that the combination of mounting and tilting the unit as in the picture makes the CDM mechanism level.
@bajjisw I have been through the entire SM, numerous times. The Fault Finding Tree calls for Service Positions 0, 1, 2, and 3, yet nowhere does it depict them.
I have attached a section of the Tree. The remainder of the tests require two Philips Test Discs, which cost $200 and $250.
I have also attached a portion of the SM from a different machine, which would be more helpful to someone at my level.

@electron-ic I will get a digital multimeter, then I'm sure I will have some questions for you!:)
