Question about Technics SCEH790 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Technics Mash SL PC 705 The unit plays a cd for a few minutes

When I put on a cd either random or not. It only plays half way through. And the whole system acts like it gets hot. I have to shut it off for a few and it plays again. But if I try to hit play its confused and the turntable wants to lock in but it just moves and doesn't never settle down. (does this make sense) I am a girl and don't know the technical way of saying things.
I have bought a CD cleaner thinking the laser was dusty didn't help
Got a suggestion ?

My technics mash, when I put cd in it will show track 1 then wont play it goes back to nought as if nothing is in it,? please

Is it a store bought CD or a "recorded CD". Some recorded CDs need to be audio formatted and not MP3- your unit will not read MP3

What CD types does the PD887 play (CD-R, CD+R, MP3 format)?

You will have to experiment on this unit. I have looked at the owners manual and it does not refer to ANY type of recordable media. Your unit may not be able to play any recorded media. That is why I suggest that you try -R first, then you may want to try a Audio CD, specifically made for audio.

Here is a link to your owners manual if you need it.

I hope that this helps you.
If you need any further assistance please respond to this post.

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.
