Top 20 Technics SL-DZ1200 CD Player Questions & Answers

As a DJ myself, I have seen that before. On a night that the equipment will not be used, UNPLUG ALL CABLES AND POWER, then use an eyedropper to drip a drop or 2 of water on the spindle and manually spin the table a few turns., wait about 5 minutes, then drop a couple drops of rubbing alcohol and again spin the table. Wait a couple hours or over night, and follow with a couple drops of oil. NO MORE THAN 3 DROPS OF ANY OF THESE!!

Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.

You should realize that this player is about 20 years old.
It was not designed to read CD-R or CD-RW media.
The signal from these media types is different from audio CDs you buy.

Most likely the deck needs a new belt installed- they are not always so easy depending on where they are located. This is what it sounds like to me- I have been doing electronics repairs for 40 years so far. I bet I could fix it.

This can be caused by many hours on the unit or a bad solder joint on the PCB. It will need to be seen by a repair Technician.

The problem is in the microprocessor ic, it controls selectors, display and mechanical devices. Did you have a recent thunderstorm? which would explain why it is none functional, this is a long shot, unplug unit from wall receptical and any other wires that are attached, now press and hold power for 60 seconds to drain residual voltage in attempt to reset the processor, if this fails cheaper to replace player.

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, buy a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if this fails! far cheaper to replace the player.

Try to insert into your computer. Right click on it when It shows up in my computer and click format. It will whip out the card and any errors that might be in it

the firmware depends on display. if the display does not supports MP3, firmware upgrading will not help. most of the time upgrading firmware will not help playing MP3.

The same type can be found from only a old machine and so it seems ideal that you search for one from a repair shop which has a good old reputation as the possibility of scrapped sets can be high.

Hi! Used to work on one and the only fix is that I unplugged all the power and sub receiver. Just turned the unit on and off and reconnect everything and it was fine. It's like the system needs to be resetted somehow. Hope this shed some light.

it sounds like the tracking coil on the laser opu has been damaged during cleaning,,,the lens is suported on two axis . the focus coil moves the len in and out .this is ok because it plays for a bit. then the tracking coil moves the lens to track the disc in sync with the sled movement of the assembley .this is were it is going wrong .. you could look closly at the tracking coil support etc and see if anything obvious .but if not will require new laser op...
