Question about Technics SL-PG480A CD Player

Open Question

When I first put in a cd it shows "no disc". After leaving the drawer open for a couple of hours it then plays any CD. Please can you suggest I fix this player which I am sentimentally attached to.

Well I fixed the problem myself by taking yhe cover off and cleaning the laser with a cue tip and alchohol very gently of course. I guess it was not reading the disc the first time it closed because some foreign object , works fine now

You can try to release the drawer and get it all the way out. Then turn of the power and carefully push the drawer back inside. Then turn the power on again. This might help!

SOURCE: I have a Technics 5 disc CD player. The loading

Unplug the units power, unscrew and remove the top. it has 3 screws on the back and I believe 2 in each side. Look to see if anything such as a CD is jamming or preventing the tray from opening.

If there isn't something like a CD physically blocking the door mechanism then the issue could be anything from a slipping drive band a dead motor or something has gone wrong with the mainboard.

The "expected" life of an audio component is 5-9 years. If its past 3 years old its generally not worth repairing as 1 hour labor and a motor for instance would cost you more than the cost of a new unit.

Hope that helps

SOURCE: CD player does not recognise some CDs

I have two of these Tascam CD-A500 players, and one more than the other has this problem of not reading some CDs that will play fine in other players. I'm starting to loose faith in this Tascam product. Anyway, seems the consensus is to open it up and check for dirty laser optics. If that doesn't fix the problem, then send it in for repair or scrap it and buy a different brand. I've not had this problem with any other brand CD player, but very suspicious that the same problem happens on BOTH of my Tascam CD-A500 units.

Why has the cd player has stopped working,it only goes from tape to radio and back again.


Do you have a digital display? Are there any lights on the player to tell you it is playing? Have you tried to open the CD drawer? There might be a button on it, so you can put a CD in it. I suggest you try to put a CD in it, because it might play automatically when you insert a disc. If that doesn't work, come back and let us know.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"


Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.
