Sony CDP-XA5ES Problem

Hello,
I ask for help with my XA5ES player, suddenly it doesn't work anymore.
This is what happen:
- the tray open
- then the disc-holding spindle moves gently outwards
- at the end of the movement returns unexpectedly back
- However, I can place the disc and close the tray but the disc is not recognised
- I hear mechanically noise and I see that the laser lens shake
I tried to power off/on with the disc inserted, clean the laser lens, changed various disc but no result.
Has anything similar happened to anyone?
Please help me, this reader is really a nice product that I wouldn't want to throw.

Broken Sony CDP XA5ES

Hi,
Is the problem solved?
What was it?
I have the same player, and now my player is having problem to start playing.
After a while it starts playing, and as soon as I pause or select another track it takes a long time to start playing again and it jumps to a random place on the disc.
If I listen closely it sounds like star wars until it starts playing.
 
Hi. The video showed by Pdo59 is curious, when the player try to read, the lens moves with the tracking lens, instead focus coils.

The symptom showed by svannie looks to be a clear fail in the laser pickup. At the distance is difficult to know more. It could be very clarifier to see the RF signal in an oscilloscope.
