This player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

Chuck it in the bin and buy a newer model. That will certainly fix it :)

CD player will not play, how do i repair?


I suspect on something that old, the motor that spins the CD is worn out. Place 1 CD in position and make note of the exact position of the words on the CD, let the player go through all 5 positions and see if the CD is still in the exact position that it was when you started. If this is the problem there's usually no easy way to fix it.

There is also the possibility that the read head is no longer moving in and out smoothly, you'll have to take the unit apart and re-grease the slides with light lithium grease.

The read head being dirty or too dusty is another possibility, but even less likely. When you get it apart, clean the read head with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol, anything harsher might damage the components.

The Optical Pickup(laser) has worn out. When you place a disc in the drawer, it has to load and read the TOC(table of contacts) if if can't read that, it assumes there is no CD in the drawer and stops or ejects.

I have a Technics CD changer SL-PD867 it will not play re writable disc's all other disc ok


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.

I have a Technics CD changer SL-PD867 it will not play re writable disc's any other disc ok


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.

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-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3 tracks. It will play some, but on others the message "track error" appears. these same disks will play just fine on the other cd player machines I have...


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.

SL-PG380A


I know it's late but i happen to have received the same unit for free, and it had the same problem. The reason for the message is that the laser weakens over time and cannot reach the CD anymore. If you try holding a disc directly above the lens, to the back of the spindle, you will see the motor starting to spin. That means the laser is still working but too weak to reach to the height of the spindle. The solution is simple. Take the drive unit out and remove the three screws on the board at the back of the drive. Carefully lift that board, there is a flex cable connected to it you don't want to break. You will see a little variable resistor with three pins. Measure the single pin against both of the other two. One should read 3.something kOhms, the other 1.something. Mine read 1.35. Using a small screwdriver turn the resistor to the right until the side that read 1.35 reads something around 700 ohms. I left mine at 740 and it works fine. Put the drive back together and load a disc. It should now work again. Don't set it any lower than 400 or you will damage the laser. If it doesn't work with 800-400, the laser is probably damaged and the drive needs to be replaced entirely, which is not worth it.
