Question about Technics SL-DZ1200 CD Player
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.

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.
