Did you clean all the lenses? There are three on this unit; the emitter lens, the grating lens, and the objective or focus lens; probably the one you cleaned. These steps must be done by a tech and clean room standards must apply. The next best thing to do is just replace the laser assembly, as the above is labor-intensive...accordianman

Technics CD Player Model No SL-PJ27 Unit will not recognise CDs. Can this be repaired


Use a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if this fails! the laser pickup assembly would need to be replaced, not cost effective to repair.

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 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.

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.

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 5 cd changer sl-pd787


Does it show the disc length or any other details? Have you carefully cleaned the lense with a q-tip and some alcohol? Can you hear the laser moving in and out of focus? If you push the laser sled out away from the centre does it move back to the middle when youi put a disc in?
