It is common for the bottom bearing of the spindle motor to be clogged up a bit. If you put a DVD in and turn it by hand is is spinning freely, if you spin it and it doesnt do a few revolutions you can try, unhitch and turn upside down, there is a small hole at the bottom, 1 squirt of CRC and turn the moter in reverse direction, I use a power supply and drive it in reverse till it eases up then a spot of sewing machine oil and its good as new. You do get an odd failure so its a risk if its just worn out. My feeling though its the laser mech, perhaps a fractured cable from laser to Mpeg. Most faults when hot are not supply or motor. I would also tell you the fix aint worth it, You can buy a cheap machine which has no codes plays everything and is usually OK for a couple of years for under $50.
