My technics eh770 cd player is skipping so i now can't play cds

If the laser pickup is skipping, it is near end of life. Buy a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if there is no change the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair far cheaper to replace player.

Technics SC -HD 501 CD jumping and skipping

If this happens on all CDs then most like the drive is bad or lens is dirty You can try cleaning out the heads using a cleaner disc. If you have a way to get to the lens you can try cleaning it manually. But most likely. It's one of the following dirty lens, bad motor, bad speed control.

CDs skip


Ok, it sound to me that the laser lens which actually reads the cd's has some dirt particles on it.

There is a very cheap method of solving this problem.
Just go to any cd shop and buy yourself a decent laser lens cleaner disc, follow the instructions and you should be set.

Kind regards

It skips after 2minutes of playing and has been cleaned

Assuming that the laser lens is clean (you don't say how you cleaned it), the three top issues are: weak laser diode (they don't last forever), bad or weak carriage motor (the motor that moves the laser pickup across the disc), or the pickup assembly is simply out of alignment. Unless your player is too old and parts are not available, the laser pickup can be replaced with a new one...but obviously this is a job for a professional.

I have a technics sl-pd887 5disk changer that

I contacted a friend who operates a sterio shop and was convinced that fifteen years of bouncing up and down has made the laser unable to focus and read the info on the disks and the solution is to buy another one . Thanks for you're interest.

Does the Technics SL-MC6 play home made CD's? CD-R? CD-RW?

i've not come across a technics cd player yet that doesn't play cd-rs but they definatly don't play cd-rws.

Static and skipping

You might need to have it professionally cleaned / diagnosed. The problem might not be a dirty reader, but a misaligned tray. Many trays, over time, become misaligned. Some more than others. Depends on your use and abuse of the unit. The issues generally happen towards the end of the tracks.
