Re: Teac PD-1200 Compact Multi Disc Player
I think that we can get at least one of them going again :) I suggest
take the lids off both of them.
load up some Cd's and close the drawer and watch what happens.
does the disc begin to spin, is not, do you hear any noise as it tries to read each disc.
can you kick start the CD when it first loads(clockwise direction)
if not of these things happen, can you see if the transport loads the cd up off the tray.
While you are in there, with the front drawer open you should be able to see the laser lens. Use a cotton bud moistened with windex(glass cleaner) gently clean the lens in a circular motion and then also polish it with a dry one to be sure you have left no smears on the lens. Then.... try the unit again and see if the CD reads. If you don't have any luck this far, please post back to me and we can try some other things. All this and you give me a FixYa... YAY :)

Generally something that is time related with a CD player indicates that there is something stuck in one of the gear teeth that drive the laser back and forth to play different areas of the disc. A very small piece of dirt/sand can get inside and stuck in a gear tooth preventing the laser from moving past that point on the CD, in your case it's about the 40 minute mark........you can try skipping to say the last song on the CD which will advance the laser unit a bit more quickly than if you were to let the disc play through, that might dislodge the piece. Another scenario could be a cracked gear in the same drive area. This is not as likely as you say it plays for 40 minutes or so. There is a piece that is attached to the laser which has gear teeth in it that mesh with the gears that move it, I'd suspect it's in there. Make sure you do not have the player plugged in when you open it, the laser is capable of damaging your eyes.
