Technics DZ 1200 not working - blue screen and just spins!
Hiya one day recently I switched on my lovely silver Technics DZ 1200 CD turntable, only to find it was NOT WORKING! Basically the platter just spins and spins, and the digital readout is lit up blue, but blank.
It makes a little clicking noise as it goes around its cycle as well.
It's still got a CD in it, I think, but traditional means won't get it out.
Any help much appreciated. i loved that little silver bugger!

pitch slider can cause an unstable motor (clean with can of air and switch cleaner) if it spins counter clockwise it will be the brake. there is a little screw in a hole under the platter to ajust the brake speed.

More than likely the traverse assembly needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, this is not easy, as Panasonic does not sell this assembly complete. YOu will have to purchase each part individually, and this in itself is not an easy task. Only an service tech knowledgeable with this unit will be able to help you out with this. Unfortunately, I cannot refer you to anyone in Taiwan.
Panasonic service is useless all over the world. I have never heard of a good repair story about Panasonic, so it's good that they didn't attempt the repair. Go with a independent reputable local service center.
Your always welcomed to ship it to us here in NY. But it wont' be cheap, and there could be more damage to the unit during transit. Just a suggestion though, if you can't find anyone in your area.
need to know if it powers up. Does it try to spin, do you hear it trying to spin? More than likely the on/off switch went bad. No, I am not referring to the ON/OFF knob. THere is a switch this engages when turned. The part is S601. You might also want to replace the Start/Stop switch as well. If neither work, then the issue is on the main PC board, and probably IC101, or IC201 with the problem. At this stage, you will have to have a service tech look at your unit.
