    deck 2 will not play . Laser blocks seem the same for all three . I swapped the assembly from 1 and 2 (remember to mark which location the deck was in to identify the bad parts later). Now deck 1 is inoperable but did work for a little while . This shows the circuitry may be okay . The laser and/or disc appears to be defective . Does any one know a source for parts ?

Hi
If the machine cant read the table of contents of a disc this would suggest either the lens of the optical pick up is dirty or the optical pick up has failed completely or something directly relating to the optical pick up i.e the spindle or stepper motor, if you can easily acess the optical lens you maybe able to clean it using a cotton bud and re-test, just try this with a dry contton bud to begin with if this gives an improvement you may wish to use a cotton bud with a alchol cleaner like I.P.A,
make light circular movements over the lens. If this makes no difference the machine requires repairing, so consult a local service engineer.

MS3100 3-Disc CD Changer not recognizing CD's.


the laser on the optical pickup is not able to read the disk. either the disk is scratched (or dirty), the lens is dirty, or the optical pickup is bad and needs to be replaced. to clean, get a lens cleaner at any electronics store and follow their instructions. if it's really bad, unplug the unit, remove the cover, locate the lens, and use an alcohol pad or rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. don't soak it, but wipe the lens off gently and blow on it to dry it off (the alcohol will evaporate). this is not a recommended solution if you are the least bit unsure of what you are doing. if you need to replace it, try www.mcmelectronics.com

When Making A CD To Play On My technics SL-PD8 It


If thhis happens quite often , and does not depend on the media, then it is usually a dirty lens problem. The lens is dirty or scratched and sometimes cannot read CD TOC (table of content).

If this happens only on reocrded CDs , try changing the media used. For example if you used +R, try with -R.

If this happens on all media, then try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaner CD or blowing some canned air on the lens.
