Question about Technics SL-PD888 5-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

Technics SL-PD1000 5-disc player: CDs stop or skip briefly when playing. I opened the cabinet and started to play a CD. While the CD was spinning I found that the center spindle repeatedly catches for just an instant. The spindle seems to turn fine (briefly) when there is no CD on it (I just hold a CD over it to 'trick' the laser into thinking there's a CD to play).

SOURCE: My Technics SL-DZ1200 will not play certain MP3

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.

SOURCE: i have a technics sl-pd887 5disk changer that

I contacted a friend who operates a sterio shop and was convinced that fifteen years of bouncing up and down has made the laser unable to focus and read the info on the disks and the solution is to buy another one . Thanks for you're interest.

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.

First I think you should turn your player on and wait 5 - 40 minutes before before you start liste3ning music.
because electrolytic capasitors may be little broken and those can repair themselves but it takes a while.

Good rule of thumb is that If you don't use every day an old device
then you should give to it every time a soft start . like I mentioned earlier
turn power on and wait.


Second try to play music cd which don't have any scratches and without any copyprotections

Third Disconnect power cable

Then open device and try to clean all dust.

Look for hairs and other difficult to see objects uselly
you find at least one hair inside old cd player.
If hair is around disk spindle it maybe difficult to
remove.

Check that cd-disk makes good contact so remove even tiniest dust and hairs
between cd-player and copact-disk. It may be called spindle or what ever but
still try to clean it with Isopropyl alcohol and remove dust and filth.

Check laserlens and is there some dryed liquid stains if there is try to remove those
with Isopropyl alcohol and swabs. Don't use any force and you can tear a top of swab little longer
(about one inch) and you get swabs which are much easier to use these kind of delicate cleanings.



Lubricate every moving part with lithiumgreese don't make any mess.

This last fix is for most desperate ones.
Connect the power cable and push eject and be carefull because
you can get fatal electric shock.
Disconect power cable. You can use extension cord which have on/off powerswitch.
You can see six tiny trim pots.
First take photo of those pots so you can undo all changes.

Change only one pot and only about 1/8 of turn. Turn power on and test if you make it worst or better.
If you think you fixed the problem that is not the case ... yet.
Then you have to make finall test and play a lot of music cd:s and after that you have fixed the problem.

Make notes which cd:s and what track your player don't play properly and use those
cd:s to testing those trimpot changes.

I have a technics SL-CH505 compact disc but it will not play burnt CD;s any suggestions my other technics SL PG 400A plays them noproblem


The Optical Pickup(laser) may be weak. It takes much more power to record than play, which I guess it works.

I have a Technics CD changer SL-PD867 it will not play re writable disc's all other disc ok


You should realize that this player is about 20 years old.
It was not designed to read CD-R or CD-RW media.
The signal from these media types is different from audio CDs you buy.

Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.

My technics eh770 cd player is skipping so i now can't play cds


If the laser pickup is skipping, it is near end of life. Buy a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if there is no change the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair far cheaper to replace player.

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.

Disc will not play appears to be skipping


There is a product called a cd/dvd lens cleaning disc. Worth the investment to have around.

Be sure discs are free of dust and scratches.

CDs skip


Hello

Ok, it sound to me that the laser lens which actually reads the cd's has some dirt particles on it.

There is a very cheap method of solving this problem.
Just go to any cd shop and buy yourself a decent laser lens cleaner disc, follow the instructions and you should be set.

Kind regards
Andrea

One more Time CD Jukebox Skipping


The fault is one or the other unit unless you have some sort of physical drag on the CD. There is a problem playing copy CDs too. Some work some dont.
