    the error I get is "table error"
    Table will not rotate I believe it is out of sync and I am unable to find any instructions on how to resync the table

  • pilotbb Mar 29, 2008

    unit is empty of all disc's cover is off Table will not rotate it is locked up Im sure that the table is out of position but I cant figure out where to position the table

  • pilotbb Mar 29, 2008

    well If I have to send the unit in for repair I mays as well purchase a new one I live out in the north woods and cost of shipping and repair

The CD Player platter does not spin or displays Table Error.
Follow this procedure when the platter of a CD Changer does not spin or displays Table Error.

  1. Open the door to the unit.
  2. Press the center button in the Jog Dial, and attempt to remove all the CD's in the unit. NOTES:
    • Verify that all the discs that were installed in the unit are removed. If all the discs do not come out, the unit will need service.
    • If the player is not operating correctly, reinstalling CDs may damage the CDs.

  3. Attempt to rotate the platter with all discs removed. If the platter rotates, install a few discs to verify operation.
  4. If the platter does not spin when the unit is empty, service will be required.
Also are you getting any other specific error codes, if so, please let me know what they are.

Please get back to me and let me know any other specifics.
Please don't forget to rate this. Thank you!

HI,

Are you having any problem reading the disc?
The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging the the player for 30min and then try again.

If this does not solve your problem then please see if the player tries to read the disc.
Load a disc and listen.Does the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.

If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Toc error 14


On questions like this it would help if we knew the manual was or was not consulted.

And if it was NOT, why.

C14 / TOC Error The unit did not read the TOC information. Insert other discs.

http://www.cdrfaq.org/faq02.html#S2-19

[Extract]

"If you write data to a disc and leave the session open, the TOC -- which tells the CD player or CD-ROM drive where the tracks are -- is written into a separate area called the Program Memory Area, or PMA. CD recorders are the only devices that know to look at the PMA, which is why you can't see data in an open session on a standard playback device. CD players won't find any audio tracks, and CD-ROM drives won't see a data track. When the session is finalized, the TOC is written in the lead-in area, enabling other devices to recognize the disc.
(Something to try: write an audio track to a blank CD, and leave the session open. Put the disc in a CD player. Some players will deny the existence of the disc, some will spin the disc up to an incredible speed and won't even brake the spindle when you eject the disc, others will perform equally random acts. The TOC is important!)"

I am getting a table error message


Hi, the error is because the cd changer is not turning, something block it! or ther is an audio cd inside that blocks the normal function or change the "rubber belt" that the motor drives for the disc system changer!, an other problem could be that is not reading the audio cd's.
If you do chek this shure you solve this problem

TABLE ERROR SHOWS IN WINDOW


What probably happened is that some CDs fell off their tracks and are blocking the main wheelhouse from turning. To solve this you will need a philips head screw driver. First unplug the machine. You will need to remove the top of the unit (which slides off towards to the back) after removing the 9 screws (2 top, 4 side, and 3 top back). Once you slide off the cover, you will expose the wheelhouse and you should see the CDs that fell off. Simply take the cds out. Once you have taken out all the CD that came off the tracks, slide the cover back on and screw in the 9 screws. The CD player should work again. This worked for me and hopefully will work for anyone encountering this error.

I AM HAVING ERROR EACH TIME I TRY TO PLAY A CD.


When your CD does not read any disk, and returns error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, or a faulty spindle motor unit.

If it is a lens problem, then you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD. After more prolonged usage , the unit will start losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all, and returning error.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the player , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the lens, or the whole drive unit.

My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3 tracks. It will play some, but on others the message "track error" appears. these same disks will play just fine on the other cd player machines I have...


I believe it can only read certain bitrates. I noticed that if I run the track error files through audacity and re-save as an mp3 with 192 kbps encoding it plays fine. Give it a try - re-encoding.

Cd player flopped @ a party


This is a normal problem with these players. Trust me I own two of them. There is an overheating problem with them. they usually oveerheat after about 3 hours. I usually just throw on a long mix and let the other player cool off. Check the unoffical Denon forums and you will see that this has been a problem for years.
