    Hope these will help
    Pioneer error codes
    The Hex code is only of relevance to those with specialist diagnostic equipment, and the important part of the code is the letter+number part which is briefly as below.


    Spindle overcurrent detection

    FG abnormality (spindle speed sensor)

    Spindle not reaching required speed before time-out


    -5V power supply line abnormality

    Loading error (timed-out, no tilt)

    Slider error

    Miss clamp

    Spindle error

    Focus error

    * = 1: Play, 2: Open, 3: Standby, 4: Clamp, 5: Setup (rotation start), 6: TOC read, 7: Play

    8: Search, 9: Side A > B, A: Side B > A

    Thanks for the great info. I take it a P5 error is a spindle rotation start problem by the info you gave me. Have any idea what would cause it ? My Laserdisc player will load the disc then the spindle will start then stop then start again then just stop. Nothing else happens except the P5 comes on the display. Looks like the photo eye searches for the start but then nothing. Cleaned the photo eye but didn't help.
