VCR Loading motor voltage? Answered

Hi everyone, I recently dismantled an old VCR and found a DC motor, I apparently got no manufacture label just a label with two rows of numbers and these numbers are:
B60730 051*

I initially thought that the 570V was the voltage of the motor but i'm not sure about it. i googled the first row of numbers and found that it's probably a Sanyo 4-527V-02700 Loading Motor Dc 5.2W, but I can't find anymore specifications for it.

What is the highest otage the power supply puts out?
But these old VCR's usually operated on 12V internally.

Simply put the motor back in, connect to a lab power supply and start with 6V.
If the VCR closes very slow try 9V and then 12V.
I don't thik it will be 24V but you never know.

Do you belive I have already tested with 38v? That thing spun as fast as a HDD.
