I have the same problem. When you turn it, after a while it justs displays "ERROR". I opened the player and I think the player is stuck on the left hand of the interior. When I lift the lever on the front of the player it starts moving, but on returning to the same place it gets stuck again. I checked to see if any items were broken but that does not seem to be the problem. I suspect that it is caused by worn out items. Any suggestions, does Technics still support this player?

Replace the small drive belt on the inside cover back left of the unit. It's easy to do - just a tight space. Take the old belt, which looks like a rubber band, to a stereo repair shop and they can sell you a new belt.

You are correct. The head unit is not moving. The problem is a little drive belt that is worn/streched. I have the same problem. I don't know where to get a replacement.

    I have just used an old bicycle tube ( I have cut a 1mm slice first but it was too thin, I have then cut a 3 mm slice) to replace the little black belt and so far so good (third track in random mode...).

Sony 5 disc cd player won't play 5 cds but plays just 1 disc


Check the mode of operation. There can be a setting where it just plays one disc. Random or mixed will give you more songs to get to other discs.

Pioneer PD-M551 cd changer won't play cds 2 thru 6.


Thank you, Mark Z! My Pioneer PD-M551 would just stop reading the CD, usually near the end of the 4th or 5th disk, and then sometimes it wouldn't read any disks or maybe only the first one or two. I observed that the white ribbon cable was most contorted near near the end of the 4th through 6th disk (also discovered the disks are read proceeding from the center outward, unlike vinyl records). I unfolded the ribbon, massaged it and left it loose and unfolded and that fixed it (at least, temporarily). The PNP-1343 ribbon cable from Pioneer costs $11 but with shipping and handling it is over $30 so I haven't bought it yet.

Sometimes home made CDs will not play. You might try to stick a good quality CD/DVD cleaner in there and run it two or three complete times. If it got real dirty sometimes one clean just does not do it. If you try both of these to no avail then your lens may have misaligned a bit. Just a mm can cause reading failure. If you have further questions on this issue please feel free to ask me.

Cd will not eject from cd 3.gives disc error message and will not read the cd.. disc errors on cd2 and cd4,but will eject the cd.will not play cds. have unplug both units for an hour. no change...


My first guess would be that the loading belt is slipping. This will prevent the cd from loading completely and thus won't read. The belt costs around $2-$3. Care must be taken when opening up this unit.

Let me know if you need any additional info.

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

Bose multi cd changer wont work, reads "Disc error"


I think there may be a problem with the system (defective parts) - I, too, am having this issue. I am going to contact the BBB - maybe if enough of us complain we will get a recall. To file a complaint:

Bose Wave Music Sys & 3 CD Changer


I have had a few of these come to my shop. The gears jump out of timing causing the cd lift to jam or become unalligned. The unit will probably have to be disassembled to get the CD out or have it serviced.
