Question about Technics SL-PD887 5-Disc CD Changer

Technics SL MC60 reading error

Usually when I turn it on the changer moves around and makes this noise but it won't move to go to the CD's and keeps reading error. It sounds like it's trying but nothing happens. It was working, my bf pushed stop to change the CD and then this happened. Any idea on how to fix this and how it even got that way? .

    Very helpful. I used a rubber O-ring approx 1inch o.d. taken from a footpeg decor off my Harley. The hardware store was closed because it was late on a weekend. Lol. It worked perfect.

Thanks for the info on the cheap o-ring (Technics belt) replacement. For a 14 yr-old CD player, a $0.79 (10 cent tax..) fix worked for us. (Thanks to Ace Hardware)

We were able to listen to our Xmas CD\'s all day, thanks to the help from these posts.

Hi, this will occur when the optical lens assembly becomes unstable or, damaged. this Assembly incorporates many gears and levers and motors as well. the lens assembly works together with the loading dock.

The laser rides on a rail that is used to allow proper scanning of the inserted media and, if this optical assembly becomes misaligned or unstable, it will not read or track properly as you are experiencing.

I recommend replacing the optical lens assembly asap if possible. it is damaged. We recommend contacting a service depot fro this type of repair.

    I just had the same problem with mine. I took it apart and found a small rubber belt/band had sliped off the motor and the mechinism that moves the player back and forth, thas the noise you usually hear .I hooked it back up, but it seems to be slipping. Im looking to find a replacement band. It may be stretched too lose. Thats all.

If a disc has been put in the slot of the disc in play, Remove the disc, whose number is displayed, and press stop button.
Because of light or noise, the changer has detected a disc in the lot of the disc being played, even though it is empty. Check whether there is a disc in the displayed slot. With front panel closed, hold down "STOP " button for atl least four seconds or more.
