In turntable mode the cd's are dragging their tempo

Hello, this weekend one of my sl-dz1200 decks has started to drag it's tempo. In Cd mode it plays just fine. I have tried a disk specially designed to clean lenses within the cd player, which made a difference for half an hour. Is this happening because of cold weather, being a smoker I leave a small window open in the same room for most of the weekend? Had the heating on last night but still no normal sl-dz1200!

Re: In turntable mode the cd's are dragging their tempo

Found a video on a web site "how to remove the platter". It's a job which does'nt need a lot of skill just great care and patience. Within the video the guy will show the senors inside the platter itself. This is wear I found a huge build up dust which I blew off with a can of air. It's not a proffensional video but I found it very easy to follow. Unfortunate for though upon putting the deck back together again I've caused more damage with my clumsy haevy handed inpatience! After looking inside the deck (as long as you have no warranty left) you will see it is not that difficult and as a tip you can disconnect the lines of flat wires as they plug into the circuit board and are not soldered in. No soldering required to fix this. The guy who made this video deserves a lot of credit due to the fact he can save many of these decks from going to the bin! If I was rich and famous I would award him an Enviromental Gong.

It must be reseted. Try unplug power for ten minutes and replug. If no result check if you can remove its internal small battery and refit.

My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3 tracks. It will play some, but on others the message "track error" appears. these same disks will play just fine on the other cd player machines I have...

I believe it can only read certain bitrates. I noticed that if I run the track error files through audacity and re-save as an mp3 with 192 kbps encoding it plays fine. Give it a try - re-encoding.

I had the same problem. Replacing the sensor is not gonna help. it is a focus problem. I had to fold a small piece of paper and put it under the sensor to raise it up alittle then you screw it in. The size of the paper you will have to figure out for yourself, but it will help u fix your problem

Expensive garbage???

Were you playing in Vinyl mode? These are very good CD players, however, there are some glitches with the firmware, which just needs to be updated. If you sent the warranty card in, you would have been sent the firmware upgrade and instructions. Were you playing a CDR? Or was it a regular CD?
