    Does anyone know where to get the Mabuchi made Sony DVD player spindle motor RF320CH-12400 cheaper than the $80 Sony wants for it?

    $80 would be for the entire optic block assembly not just the motor. I've never found a source for the motor by itself but Mat Electronics sometimes has the assemblies much cheaper. If you can locate a dead unit you may be able to swap the part of the assembly with the motor on it (the optic part is the usual failure) I keep all the broken units in my shop for parts but that's not much help if you're not local .

    Thanks for the Mat Electronics, I'm always looking for new places to get parts. I was able to fix the motor with the help of another websight full of people with the same problem who had a fix which worked great and saved me a bunch of money too.

    At this stage of repair, it might be simpler just to opt for a new player altogether.

    I already fixed it for free using the back of an old CD motor I had laying around which uses the same brush assembly, worked great and saved a bundle.
