Question about Technics SL-PG480A CD Player
These models use the 12.1 philips laser mechanism and your right it is a very common problem.
various marantz / philips / cyrus cd players etc also use it and are plagued with the same fault.
it's a 90% chance the laser is dead!
philips realised the unreliability of this laser and uprated it to the identical looking VAM-12.
do not dismiss the spindle motor as these also fail quite alot on this mechanism.
hope this helps.
