How can I fix my Technics SL-P333?

I have to turn the cd by hand to start the index process. The player is then ok for a few plays. About 1 in every 5 plays need to be finger assisted. Help!, I don't like keeping the cover off my player.

I had the same problem. There's a small resistor on the left front restricting the current of the motor for turning the cd. That one gets quite hot and so increases its resistance more and more. For my player it even went black and smelled quite burned. Replacing that resistor helped quite well.
