Hi Connor, if you have that hi-fi with cd problem the following worked for precise same problem.
CD ERROR message, no disk spinning takes place.
With the back cover removed, the slight twitch, zzzt noise can be heard when the player attempt to do something is audible and a slight disk twitch is visible.
Steps taken prior to getting it working from the last paragraphs solution:
- Clean the lens with earbud and alcohol
- Remove and clean the little light cupped grey disk holder just under the sort of disk centre holder, it pops out. Clean with soap, water, soft brush and pop back in again. Below that is the lower part of the disk clamp. Cleaned that also.
- That ensures the disks can be gripped, there aren’t any rubber flat rubber washers anywhere. Only the bare plastic.
Load up the tray with three CDs, let one get selected. Then Switch off the hi-fi.
Then with power off and that CD picked and held by the mechanism, press down down carefully onto the selected disk with all seven fingers of one hand with while giving the spin axis, Z axis a bit of vigorous shimmy, similar to those plates on sticks tricks. You can put some assisted spin onto the disk also and finally with power on do the same until it works. The aggravated jiggling loosens up something. That got the motor spinning again and there it was, music working.
My FW535C is working well now.
