Cd changer problem Technics SLCH 555

Put cd's in and it can't seem to find them. Searches and doesn't play anything. Have had the laser focus lens cleaned, focused & aligned, and the carriage assembly cleaned and checked. Problem persists.

What is the most likely cause of a "NO DISK" error with the Onkyo DX-C390 6-Disk changer? Would it be the laser pickup assembly?

Could be dirty laser lens, dying laser, faulty component,
Due to the complexity of multi-disk changers, it may be best to have the device looked at.
You can try running a cleaning disk through it first, but from your post, it sounds like this unit may have multiple problems and need tested by a physical person.

Technics cd changer sl-mc59 says C F 19 it does not read disc

HelloDisc reading is done by the laser pickup assembly. If it has some trouble with it, the lead-in and lead-out signals and other music signals cannot be read from the CD disc we insert into. There are mainly three reasons for this fault. The first one is with dirty laser pickup assembley focussing lens. If the lens has accumulated with dirt or dust, the intensity or laser beam that hits the disc will be weak, and so the reflected beame too. This will lead improper reading of the lead-in signals, and the set will show no-disc after a while. Put a laser head cleaning disc [this disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops at your town], play it for at least three times, and see whether it helps you.If not, try replacing the flat ribbon plastic cable that connects the laser head assembly to the main board of the player. Actually this is a very skilled work, as you have to dismanle the mechanism out from the set. If these two processes does not help you, repalce the laser pickup assembely with same type and number. OK.

We cannot use this because the CD's all skip. We found out that there aren't replacements to buy, we tried at Best Buy. we really miss being able to play CD's. Can you help.


how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it skip.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Take care.

CDs skip


Ok, it sound to me that the laser lens which actually reads the cd's has some dirt particles on it.

There is a very cheap method of solving this problem.
Just go to any cd shop and buy yourself a decent laser lens cleaner disc, follow the instructions and you should be set.

Kind regards

I have a technics sl-pd887 5disk changer that

I contacted a friend who operates a sterio shop and was convinced that fifteen years of bouncing up and down has made the laser unable to focus and read the info on the disks and the solution is to buy another one . Thanks for you're interest.

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 5 cd changer sl-pd787

Does it show the disc length or any other details? Have you carefully cleaned the lense with a q-tip and some alcohol? Can you hear the laser moving in and out of focus? If you push the laser sled out away from the centre does it move back to the middle when youi put a disc in?

Yamaha cdc 555 5 disc cd player

If you trust yourself enough to open the case w/o breaking stuff, then open it up UNPLUGGED, locate the laser lens (small,clear,plastic) gently clean the lens with a swab of lens cleaner for glasses.
Also clean the chrome runners that the laser assembly tracks on.
