I just found this new to me Philips CD880 that I got for possible spares for my good CD880 but figured if there's anyone who specializes in this type of repair I'd have her done up right!! :D

You bought for parts so assuming defective? What's the issue?
Restore? Mod? Resto-mod? Lol!

Recap kits, chip swaps.... we know "whose baby is that" but "what's your angle"?

Does the disc spin up? Did you attempt to clean the laser?

lens has been cleaned, disc spins for about 3 seconds then stops, it never shows the track count or total disc time, then it displays "error"

I think it needs professional help

Many Philips transports are no longer available, nor are the laser mechanisms. You may have a boat anchor there.
You'll have to ask a tech if those parts are available.

Apologies to the author for plagiarizing but I'm lazy...

The lasers on the old swing-arm Philips CD drives seldom fail. If the drive is a CDM 2, there's a failure common to these drives that looks just like a laser diode failure but is much easier to fix. On the circuit board that piggybacks to the drive, there is a 33 uF axial-lead electrolytic capacitor in the laser diode power supply. This part tends to fail open, and the laser gets no current when the cap goes bad. Replacing the cap is all that's needed to bring many of those drives back to life.

the gentleman I acquired this cd880 from is a retired elec tech and he'd already changed out that same 33uf cap, now I never checked his work but I'm assuming he did it correctly hence the title of my thread;

"who is the cd player repair pro?"

somebody has to know someone that is expert at cd player repair??

no, I think tech tried the driver cap but still wouldn't read so instead of forking out $300+ for an obsolete cdm1 mkii he sold it as is.

an elect tech that can't solder in an axial cap?! come on...

like avguy wrote its prolly a boat anchor unless you can source a mechanism.
