Then it may be a registration problem - the changer has to know what position the tray is in so that it can play the correct cd - often there is a foil connector that gets damaged or an opto coupler that goes faulty.

I own a technics CD changer Model SL-PD 787. The system powers up showing the disc & track no. but the timer does not count down . and therefore does not play. How can I fix the problem.


Actually it's the other way around. Playback makes the counter move. Did you hit PLAY or try to seek to a track or anything to verify it 'likes' the disc?

Pioneer PD-f908 skips on certain CDs and when I turn volume more than 1/3. Have already tried cleaning CD and manual cleaning. Cleaned with q-tips and alcohol, then blew with canned air to be sure no q-tip...


You should ponder what, if anything, the volume might have to do with CD tracking. If room- or air-borne vibrations are reaching the player its normal tracking abilities may be overcome.

I have a pioneer pd-f407 25-disc cdfile changer. A few days ago the changer? or disc grabber at the back quit picking up the CDs . So now when I try to play a CD it says "NO DISC AVAILABLE" even...


The large changers after a few years start to show ware and tare, the gears become worn and because you are dealing with plastic makes them all most impossible to repair. So to answer your question, easier to replace the device.

Pd-m403 cd player skips thru all six cds (they are oriented correctly) without playing any selection, then get a message "no disc"


Hi there

Sure you can.for 12 years I was a prefferred service agent for Pioneer. I have repaired dozens of these units with this problem. It has been happening since they came up with the six disc changer mech. The Pioneer preferred way is to replace the optic, set the diffraction grating(not an easy task without the right gear) and mechanical alignment of the new optics. DO NOT USE CYNOACRYLATE BASED GLUES This is super glue. the fumes will cloud the lens and render it useless, I use Tarzan's Grip, a clear general purpose repair glue,used for say china,metal plastic etc.
  • I always make sure that the lens in orientated the same way as it came out. You can usually tell by the glue marks on the sides of the lens and the holder it seats into.
  • Refit the lens, then dab the sides of it and the holder, don't get too carried away.
  • I use at least 3-4 dabs about the sides of the lens, but don't put it under the lens before you seat it .
  • I then put something on top of it for at least 12 hours till the glue sets. then hopefully if all went as planned, it should again work.
I used to always check focal offset and tracking offsets, and tweak also the RF pattern to refocus the repaired assembly. You do need test gear to do that, but generally, the player will work if the lens is seated correctly and secured properly. Happy to talk to you more about my experience doing this job,or answer any questions about it.

Pioneer 101 disc cd changer PD-F907, all seem to work but won't play cd's any more


These models have a common problem with a lever that pops out of place and makes it so the disc's can not be loaded into the mech to be played. Take the top off the unit and look into the middle of it. You will see the actual cd mech that plays the disc. It has a white lever that has a knob on it and that knob may be out of place. It goes into a track on a black lever right below or next to the white lever. After it is put back into place, it should play fine.

CD STOPPED PLAYING AT TRACK 3 AND NOW WILL NOT PLAY AT ALL. PD-65 HAS BEEN STORED (NOT USED) FOR SEVERAL YEARS APPRX 7. DOES IT NEED CLEANED


First try ejecting the disk and unplugging the unit power cord for five minutes.

if that did not work, that probably means you have a lens problem.

Use a dvd lens cleaner kit , like the ones that you see clicking here.

Ifthat does not work, you will need to take apart the unit, access thelens pickup, and clean the lens directly, using isopropyl alcohol and acotton sticks.
