Technics SL-MC7 cd player is stuck displaying OFF

Our cd changer will not respond at all. The blue back light is on and the display reads OFF with two bars blinking above that. I can't find anything to fix it so far - please help. Thank you!

this is a standard plug you should be able to get from radio shack or other electronic stores. just take a picture of where the connection is on the unit with your mobile phone and show it to the sales person. cheers, mark

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

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.

Where can I have the unit repaired. It is stuck in search mode.


might be just a broken drive belt - pretty common on these units. Take the cover off and look at the top of the cd mechanism for the belt.

Reads all the cd but only plays the single cd everytime


This sound like a mode setting problem. Can you manually select another of the discs and it plays?

You will need a service manual to get the correct part number. Go online to Technics, contact customer support and technical department to see if they can provide one.

Hello My SL-MC7 gives a error message No Disk even the tray is full with disks. The disks are taken out to the player and put back again without being played Kind regards Rene


Well the first thing to try is a cd lense cleaner. You may have a build up of prticles and oil on the lense causing it not to read. Secondly, make sure you try a "Shop Purchased" cd to make sure it's not haveing problems reading "cdrs" (home made cds).
If after both of these methods you still have the same problem, it's down to the laser. Could be a series of things from tracking, focussing or the laser has died altogether. Unles your experienced with electronics in a big ay and have test meters and an oscilloscope, you need to decide how much you want to keep this CD player as a new one could be cheaper than a repair.

No play


Sounds like the drive belt that spins the disk is slipping or broken. You have only one actual cd reader so no matter what slot the disc is in it has to go to the same cd reader drive.

Hope this helps...
