I have a Technics 5 CD disc changer CD player PD687. It worked well for about 10 years. I was going to load it with the cd's and somebody accidentally pushed and closed the door. After that it rotates, opens and closes the cd compartment endless. I had to unplugged it. What could be the problem..? Is it worth to take it for servicing to a local electronics shop, can they repair it....? .

Thanks

If there's a disk left over inside, It's stuck in the drive hanger, and should be removed else the changer can't put it back in it's right slot. Open the machine and check for any CD's still inside.

If not, could be that the small sensore (to the left of the head assembly (just before the drve (upside down)) is dirty or messed up.

Try cleaning if.

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.

Unplug the units power, unscrew and remove the top. it has 3 screws on the back and I believe 2 in each side. Look to see if anything such as a CD is jamming or preventing the tray from opening.

If there isn't something like a CD physically blocking the door mechanism then the issue could be anything from a slipping drive band a dead motor or something has gone wrong with the mainboard.

The "expected" life of an audio component is 5-9 years. If its past 3 years old its generally not worth repairing as 1 hour labor and a motor for instance would cost you more than the cost of a new unit.

Hope that helps

I have a technics 5 changer CD player, model# SL-PD687 and when I place a CD in there it no longer plays the CD. It just moves through all 5 CDs and stops without playing them.


You ever get a solution to this, mate?

I have the same freaki'n issue with mine all of a sudden. Suspect the power supply's not delivering enough power to rotate the spindle-motor anymore, cause if I take this motor out and connect it to a 1.5V battery, it runs...

Cd tray opening and closing all the time


Dear friend, my sony dvd drive tray opens and closes itself, it is mostly a problem related to hardware. in my case I removed the IDE Data cable connected to the dvd drive and reconnected it again. now my dvd drive works well, I think the problem was the IDE data cable, may be a loose contact.due to this loose cantact,a jung signal goes to the dvd drive, which opens and closes the tray frequently without our knowledge.
