This can happen if the spindle motor is worn. When it detects resistance it will go back to the start of the disc again.

A lack of use can actually cause the motor to seize prematurely. Perhaps a few plays in quick succession will help free it up.

If that does not help, the spindle motor will need to be replaced to fix this problem.

The motor and disc spin well but even so it plays the first portion again without stopping.Could it be the repeat function has to do with it ?

No, the repeat function would repeat an entire track. Since it is only playing 30 seconds and then going back to the start, the motor is meeting some resistance.
