Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

When I turn on my SL-MC300 dusc changer, it shows checking discs and the goes to error. Turning off and back on does no good. What's wrong?

This is a Model SL-MC300 110 Disc changer that gives error report after going through checking discs. It makes a humming noise but nothing happens.

    The problem was a worn out drive belt that I replaced with a #33 1 1/16 OD x 15/16 ID -1/16 Wall O Ring.

    I took cover off and found drive belt had come off. I went to hardware store and bought a #33 O ring that repaired the unit very nicely. Thank you to MelaciousMel who suggested the O ring at the hardware store.

SOURCE: Technics SL MC60 reading error

Hi, this will occur when the optical lens assembly becomes unstable or, damaged. this Assembly incorporates many gears and levers and motors as well. the lens assembly works together with the loading dock.

The laser rides on a rail that is used to allow proper scanning of the inserted media and, if this optical assembly becomes misaligned or unstable, it will not read or track properly as you are experiencing.

I recommend replacing the optical lens assembly asap if possible. it is damaged. We recommend contacting a service depot fro this type of repair.

The problem is likely the carriage drive belt. The player is well over 10 years old so the belt gets stretched with use. Then it is unable to transfer power for moving mechanisms.
If you feel comfortable about opening the cover using proper electrical safety procedures then you can observe what the carriage is doing upon turn on. Unplug the player, remove the cover by unscrewing four fasteners (I think, but you can easily figure it out), plug in and power up. The carriage should go through a positioning calibration and disk checking sequence (simply, it moves out of the home position, travels across the player and repositions itself to await front panel input).
Yours probably doesn't so look at the belt on the top of the carriage. If it is off the drive wheels, remove electrical power, then simply put it back on, power up, and recheck.
If the belt is spinning on the wheels and seems loose then it needs replaced. Fortunately, here is an inexpensive and attainable replacement courtesy of another FixYa poster
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1616894-looking_drive_belt
Also, a clean up and lube of the mechanisms would be a good thing to do. That takes some technical know how to clean without damaging and applying the correct lube in the right amounts to the appropriate mechanism components. Some general references are available in electronic service books or online. I should probably launch a site!
Otherwise, without knowing the conditon of other components in the drive assemply, a service manual is required to proceed with further troubleshooting specifically for the player.
Hope that the K.I.S.S. approach helps you enjoy your player again.

SOURCE: Bose multi cd changer wont work, reads "Disc error"

I think there may be a problem with the system (defective parts) - I, too, am having this issue. I am going to contact the BBB - maybe if enough of us complain we will get a recall. To file a complaint:

Tech SL-MC410. Continously displays "Checking Disc"


When the unit is saying "Checking discs" and neither goes further nor turns off (just says "Off" but doesn't), the reason is still the main belt (accessible from the top as soon as you lift the cover) that is too loose. When the belt is way too loose, the unit doesn't move at all, if the belt is little too loose, the player-unit will move a bit, but there is not enough torque on the gears to reach the end position (where the player unit is secured against movements).

Hi!

I dont't think that your cd-changer is broken. It may only need some cleaning. One year is time enough for dust to set on optical reader. I suggest to use a cleaning disk, available on every store selling optical media.

Hope it helped,

I have a model sl-pd847 and experience similar problems to many other submitters. I checked the main pcb and found discolouration around what appear to be 2 (power?) transistors and probably a voltage regulator. After about 4-5 minutes after switch on these get really hot. I suspect that may be the reason why it doesn't work anymore. Worth fixing? I don't think so. This one didn't even play CD-R let alone CD-RW! Get something a bit more up to date I say.
