Question about Technics SL-DZ1200 CD Player

Open Question

My TECHNICS SL-PC25 5-CD player has difficulties initiating a CD.

It will spin the circular bed that holds all 5 CDs, then randomly stop to begin a CD, but before it actually starts a track, it stops and again starts spinning the circular bed to repeat this entire process, never to play a track. It doesn't seem to matter which buttons I touch,the player has a mind of its own and eventually after many frustrating minutes will stop and begin playing an entire CD.

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.

SOURCE: Cant get Technics SL-PC503 to play cds

Hi: I just took my parent's cover-less Technics SL-PC503 5 CD carosel CD player off their floor where the dogs shed, and vacuumed it and tried to get it to play. First it wouldn't even load them, but with a lot more vacuuming and Q-tipping with alchohol, it would load but then reject the CDs. Finally, I turned it upside down and shook it- gently at first, but then pretty hard. It works now, and shows no prejudice against my home burns.

This player will not play either MP3 or MP4 encoded CdRs. It is a good 18 years old now and such things were unforeseen back in the day. The newer sony may well be MP3 compatible. You could convert MP4 to standard audio types on your pc via any number of software applications.

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.

Technics CD Player Model No SL-PJ27 Unit will not recognise CDs. Can this be repaired


Use a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if this fails! the laser pickup assembly would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair.

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
