Question about Audio Players & Recorders

3 Answers

I own a Theta Jade transport with a Pioneer Stable Platter assembly. It has recently started skipping. I contacted Theta and they do not service these units anymore. Is there a source for the pioneer stable platter. Is there a source for the laser assembly or spindle motor assembly? As a last resort, are there parts #'s that I could reference for these psrts. I did contact an aftermarket repair facility that told me if I could find the parts or model or parts # then they might be able to help me out. Thanks, Tom

    Okay,

    Where can I find the serial #'s for the parts mentioned...laser assembly and spindle motor?

    Your initial answer really doesn't help me because it is obvious to me that I would need a part #.

    Is there any known source for a pioneer stable platter assembly?

    Thanks

    It appears that you can't help me with this issue. Is this correct?

  • scifi Mar 12, 2008

    I have a Theta Jade transport that has started skipping. Yesterday I asked for some help in locating a pioneer stable platter replacedment as it may be the laser assembly or spindle motor that is the issue. I also asked for a source for serial #'s of these components.

    The replies that I received were:

    1) yes, you will need serial #'s
    2) look for the parts at a garage sale
    3) yes, this is an older player and you may not be able to locate parts.

    IMO these are hardly answers to my questions, so I am reposting my questions and hoping for a more appropriate anwswer.

    Thanks,

    Tom

Yup, even the Gurus are having a tough time with this one :)

Scifi, I read Theta's "Notice For Theta Digital Transport Owner" posted right on the front page of their website. I think that the "lack of parts and proper documentation from our vendors" is aimed squarely at Pioneer and their Stable Platter Transport. I've been looking high and low for any documentation on it, and haven't found anything (except lots of other people asking the same questions...)

I've got one lead from a forum post I ran across:
Dando Electronics in Kansas City, MO is reported to do repairs on Pioneer stable platter transports used in anyone's nameplate product. They have no website, but their phone # is (816) 361-6733.

Maybe they could give you more information about obtaining parts?

Try to open it and check for the voltage rating on the laser assembly transport motor. The skipping is cause by that motor and maybe the transport mechanical parts.
If you post a picture of the assembly with a very good view of the electrical motor and the rest of the parts, I will try to find something for you.

Technics 1200 fault where both the 33 & 45 buttons remain lit, the platter spins at super speed,start stop button doesn't work and the red light is not on

064 code


Symptom

E064 is indicated on the control panel. The error description is: The presence of a high voltage error is communicated by the composite power supply. The output for primary charging, developing, or transfer has deviated from a specific level of voltage.

Cause
* Adjustments in Service Mode are Incorrect
* Transport Assembly is Not Engaging Properly
* Dirty HVT Contacts for Developing Assembly and Charging Rollers
* A Paper Clip on HVT Contacts or Developing Assembly
* Faulty Transfer Roller
* Faulty Static Charge Eliminator
* Defective Composite Power Supply
* Defective DC Controller PCB Assembly

Action

1. Check the values in Service Mode and make sure they correspond to the Service
Label. If the copier receives a spike or surge through the 240V line these values can change (can also give you blank copies). Take particular note of the Dev Bias
setting. [COPIER > ADJUST > DEVELOP > DE-DC]
2. Make sure the Transport Assembly is engaging properly. The Transfer Roller should
make good contact with the drum. Check condition of screw (XB6-7501-007) and
Pressure Plates (FB5-4816-000 & FB5-4817-000) for the Transport Assembly.
3. Clean HVT contacts for Primary/ Transfer Charging Rollers and Developing
Assembly. Inspect for any paper clips.
4. Replace the Transfer Roller (FF6-0104-000).
5. Replace the Static Charge Eliminator (FF5-7246-000).
6. Replace Composite Power Supply followed by DC Controller PCB Assembly
Thanks

I HAVE A PIONEER PL-30 TURNTABLE AND I NEED TO REMOVE THE 'PLATTER' IN ORDER TO REPLACE THE BELT. THERE IS NO CLIP TO REMOVE. HOW DO I GET THE 'PLATTER' OFF. AGAIN THERE IS NO CLIP FOR REMOVAL.


Pull up on the platter with one hand after you remove the rubber mat. Then hit the center post with a rubber mallet while pulling up on the platter with on hand just hard enough to release the platter from the post. The platter should come off.

Record skipping despite new needle


It could be something to do with the turnatable's platter. Is the matt that the record sits on faulty. Does the platter wobble up and down with no record on it? If you can see this happening you might need to check the platter out. If it's a belt driven the belt can come out of position causing such problems. Also objects can get stuck inside the platter. Especially if you have small children in the house!!!

Transport will not accept or load any discs


do you used a laser lens cleaning disc periodically cleaning the lens after every 8 hours of use or so ?
if not, and if the laser itself still is functioning , then manual cleaning of the lens with a drop of cleaning solution on a q-tip and then dry cleaning it with the other end of the q-tip , will get it going again
otherwise gears may need grease or worse, there is a problem with the laser , laser focus , or signal board , so then testing will need to be done to find out which has failed

Cdj800 jog wheel stops working after 45mins


The drive motor on this unit is probably about to die, or the contact pad underneath the platter is damaged. In either case, you'll have to take it to a qualified service technician for diagnosis and repair.

E9101 wont take a cd in


E-9101 is a cd mechanism error - either your loading motor is damaged, or your cd transport assembly is damaged. In either case, you'll have to take it to a service center for repair.

Cdj-800MK2 jog problem


From the video, it just looks like there might be some debris/dirt underneath the platter. There is a sensor pad under the platter, and if there is anything disrupting the pad, you'll have those issues.

Try opening her up, and cleaning her out. Or take her to a service center for a professional cleaning.
