Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Technics CD Player SL-CH530 disc not spinning.

The CD player worked fine when last used a couple of months ago. But when I insert a disc now and press the play button, Track 1 appears in the window then nothing happens and after a few moments I get a message "CD no disc". Is this something I (not an electronics person) can fix?

    Is it fixable by an expert (if I can find one who does repairs to vintage equipment)?

The laser is damaged or dirty. Try gently swabbing the lens with rubbing alcohol and drying with canned air. If this fails the laser is damaged and unrepairable.

SOURCE: My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3

I believe it can only read certain bitrates. I noticed that if I run the track error files through audacity and re-save as an mp3 with 192 kbps encoding it plays fine. Give it a try - re-encoding.

First I think you should turn your player on and wait 5 - 40 minutes before before you start liste3ning music.
because electrolytic capasitors may be little broken and those can repair themselves but it takes a while.

Good rule of thumb is that If you don't use every day an old device
then you should give to it every time a soft start . like I mentioned earlier
turn power on and wait.


Second try to play music cd which don't have any scratches and without any copyprotections

Third Disconnect power cable

Then open device and try to clean all dust.

Look for hairs and other difficult to see objects uselly
you find at least one hair inside old cd player.
If hair is around disk spindle it maybe difficult to
remove.

Check that cd-disk makes good contact so remove even tiniest dust and hairs
between cd-player and copact-disk. It may be called spindle or what ever but
still try to clean it with Isopropyl alcohol and remove dust and filth.

Check laserlens and is there some dryed liquid stains if there is try to remove those
with Isopropyl alcohol and swabs. Don't use any force and you can tear a top of swab little longer
(about one inch) and you get swabs which are much easier to use these kind of delicate cleanings.



Lubricate every moving part with lithiumgreese don't make any mess.

This last fix is for most desperate ones.
Connect the power cable and push eject and be carefull because
you can get fatal electric shock.
Disconect power cable. You can use extension cord which have on/off powerswitch.
You can see six tiny trim pots.
First take photo of those pots so you can undo all changes.

Change only one pot and only about 1/8 of turn. Turn power on and test if you make it worst or better.
If you think you fixed the problem that is not the case ... yet.
Then you have to make finall test and play a lot of music cd:s and after that you have fixed the problem.

Make notes which cd:s and what track your player don't play properly and use those
cd:s to testing those trimpot changes.

The problem with old CD Players are that they sometimes are a little fidgety when it comes to reading CDRs.

You could try burning a new CD on the lowest possible setting, say 2x or 4x.

Also try changing the CDR brand as some cheap CDRs are prone to not reading in old CD Drives.

Try using a regular CD-R (CD recordable - record only once) instead of a CD-RW (CD rewritable - rewrite multiple times). CD-RW use a different "ink" to write the data to the disc and can be re-recorded/erased a couple of times before it loses its ability to write effectively to it.

I buy a used technics sl-pg480a cd player and after i inserted a cd, there is "no disc" on display...i try with different cd's (mp3, avi,...) and it's always the same...i have opened a box and...


If it doesn't turn the disc it can't read the data and 'know' from that there is a compatible disc inserted.

You may have gotten hosed by the seller. Until you get it to play with a commercial music CD I wouldn't try anything non-standard or home-grown. It doesn't play anything but CD-A music so MP3 and AVI discs would not be recognized anyway.

Before you dive in and possibly wreck it, read this...

My technics sl-p770 doesn?t recognize the loaded CD.A cd is alway spin but not any track in audio cd.


Try cleaning the lens with a cd/dvd lens cleaner disc. Another thing of note....some cd players simply will not recognize homemade cds, or dics that are not audio discs, or if they were made on a computer.

Technics SL-MC7 / Can't play cd's any more!


Friend. Did you try a CD that you purchased from the store? if so and this problem persist, then you need to get you a new player. If the CDs are scratched, some players will not play them, If they are burnt in mp3 format, (or data format) your player may not recognised this also. Please try playig a regular CD that you bought from the store, if this work, then you will need to reburn your music as a regular CD, hoping that the SL-MC700. reads copied. It should. But please checks these steps.

Please let me know what works.

Thank you
