it's not the motor, as i tried it before, and 5 years ago it wasn't working, so it's not something new.

before anything thank you for always giving others a brief about how...
Dear Brian, good news, it was the transistor, a ss8550 PNP type.
replacing it fixed the issue :), I'm so happy, not because i need the receiver, i have two other, but because i was able to fix it and of course i would not have done it without you, because I'm a noob.
thank you again, and have...
I have a Philips Expanium 200 CD/MP3 Player, it was working Ok, but suddenly and without any prior problems,
the motor stopped spinning.
I tested the Motor seperately and it's working OK.
attached are two screenshots of the board from the two sides.
PS: the motor connector is the 6 pins...
I think you are right about the transistors, i will start with that,
because i can only see two transistors surrounded by some Diodes, so sure this is the circuit you are talking about.
PS: to be able to test the transistors, should i desolder them first?
and what it the easiest way to test it...
thank you very much Brian,
I'll start by testing the voltage and let you know the results.
the LNB itself is OK, as i tested others.
the Receiver from inside has two seperated boards, connected through a cable, one is for the power supply, and the other is for the signal, chipset....
the reason why i want to fix it is just for fun and for learning, to fix, debug and read circuits and know what parts are defect
i have a Dvb receiver, its a chinese brand so its not important, that's why it does not have protection for short circuit on the LNB input.
