Question about Technics SL-PD8 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

SL-PD8 cd tray is opening and closing, nonstop.

The tray on my SL-PD8 is opening and closing,nonstop. The door opens, the magazine turns 1 CD, the door closes and the process repeats. It stops if I unplug the unit, but with the unit plugged in, it does not respond to the power key or the remote. My kids say the player has been doing this all day! Any way to fix this or is it time for a new player?

I called panasonic and they told me to do a hard reset on the system it seems to have worked on mine. Hold the power button continually while you unplug and replug the unit.

Door won't open of Technics SL-CH900


Hi Robert,
probably the cd tray belt (a tiny black rubber belt that connect the tray rack with motor gear) is broken, check this by opening the player, if torn you need to buy a new spare and replace it.

How can i open my cd drive to insert my cd?


If the button on the drive won't pop open the drive, then you need to find out what is causing it to stick closed. Most drives have a tiny hole on the door so you can push a paper clip in it to open the door.

There is a small switch under the tray that stops the motor at the end of it's travel, also one when the tray goes back in.

Cd tray opening and closing all the time


Dear friend, my sony dvd drive tray opens and closes itself, it is mostly a problem related to hardware. in my case I removed the IDE Data cable connected to the dvd drive and reconnected it again. now my dvd drive works well, I think the problem was the IDE data cable, may be a loose contact.due to this loose cantact,a jung signal goes to the dvd drive, which opens and closes the tray frequently without our knowledge.

When Making A CD To Play On My technics SL-PD8 It


If thhis happens quite often , and does not depend on the media, then it is usually a dirty lens problem. The lens is dirty or scratched and sometimes cannot read CD TOC (table of content).

If this happens only on reocrded CDs , try changing the media used. For example if you used +R, try with -R.

If this happens on all media, then try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaner CD or blowing some canned air on the lens.

Technics SL PD8 laser replacement


The answer is yes you do. The replacement laser pickup assembly has 2 motors already fixed to it so the pegs in the suspension have to be removed (2 off) and it is best to prise open the split in the receptacle to facilitate this without damage.Then 3 screws on the pcb need unscrewing and after the solder has been removed on the motors the boards will come apart.

Denon CD door jammed


If you are comfortable taking the cover off, you can try removing the cover and then try to help the tray out the same time you are hitting OPEN/Close.
IF you are not comfortable removing the cover then, you can try to take a credit card (Actually, if you have any of those JUNK credit cards that the CC companies send out as trial offers, those work the best, and who cares if you bend those, they get tossed anyway) and bend an edge at a 90 degree.. (about 1/8" of the edge) so it makes like a small ledge. try to fit it inbetween the top of the door, and then see if you can open it up. Some players have a seperate door, and some trays are attached to the door. You might be able to help it out or unjam the tray this way.
And in the Future, with any other CD/DVD Players, use your remote control or the open and close button to open and close the tray, and NEVER Push on the tray itself. If I had a dollar for every dvd player tray that Ive fixed because of this, I would be buying bill gates dinner. (not really, but you get my point)
Good luck.
