Question about Technics SL-DZ1200 CD Player
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!
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.
