Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have an Technics SL-CH550 CD player that don't play. Usually it the lens moves up and down several times, and the CD don't spin up. The display reads "no disc". Once i a while it does find focus and plays prefect. But if I then try to search or stop and play again it starts to search again and then gives up, displaying "no disc". I don't know if there is a focus, servo or electric adjustment problem. Can you help me?

"I don't know if there is a focus, servo or electric adjustment problem." Could be any or all of those.

Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further

regards
Graeme

This means that the unit can tell that a disc is present, but can not read it. Try opening up the top and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Let us know if that resolves the problem.
Thanks,
Dan

CDs can be removed but you must use great caution not to break or bend mechanism components. Its better to have unit serviced by pro/tech

Optical lens requires cleaning.
Please put cd cleaner in tray and check if it cleans dirt on lens. Still same problem, then unplug unit from AC outlet, take off top cover of hifi system and clean lens with good quality cotton bud. hope this will resolve problem.

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

Technics SL-MC60 error message: "Take out"


Hello
If a disc has been put in the slot of the disc in play, Remove the disc, whose number is displayed, and press stop button.
Because of light or noise, the changer has detected a disc in the lot of the disc being played, even though it is empty. Check whether there is a disc in the displayed slot. With front panel closed, hold down "STOP " button for atl least four seconds or more.

Hi guys my technics sl-eh770 has started to skip and this can become very anoying. what would be a fix or do i have to get a new 1


if this is happening on all cds then it would indicate that your lens maybe dirty.
you can by cd cleaners discs that go into machine like a regular disc but when they play they rub the lens clean.

you should only try this one time if it still is a problem there maybe some dust in there getting in the way. this would need to be opened to check.


I hope this was useful.

My technics sl-p770 doesn?t recognize the loaded CD.A cd is alway spin but not any track in audio cd.


Try cleaning the lens with a cd/dvd lens cleaner disc. Another thing of note....some cd players simply will not recognize homemade cds, or dics that are not audio discs, or if they were made on a computer.

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.

When Making A CD To Play On My technics SL-PD8 It


If thhis happens quite often , and does not depend on the media, then it is usually a dirty lens problem. The lens is dirty or scratched and sometimes cannot read CD TOC (table of content).

If this happens only on reocrded CDs , try changing the media used. For example if you used +R, try with -R.

If this happens on all media, then try cleaning the lens with a lens cleaner CD or blowing some canned air on the lens.
