Hello Johnny, for what you comment, the noise Leo produces the Rec-Play key inside your RS-M7
Take out the lid and you'll find on the main plate, a long piece of metal, that on the Rec-Play key
Use some contact cleaner or a couple of drops of DW-40 and apply them by one of the ends of the key,
With the equipment off, put a cassette and press the keys Rec and Play, then Stop and repeat the sequence several times, you will see that the key moves a slide, where you put the cleaner
Then connect again, turn on Play and it should work fine
If not, consult a specialized technical service
I hope I can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Johnny, por lo que comentas, el ruido leo produce la llave Rec-Play dentro de tu RS-M7
S?cale la tapa y vas a encontrar en la placa principal, una pieza met?lica larga, esa en la llave Rec-Play
Utiliza alg?n limpiador de contactos o un par de gotas de DW-40 y aplicarlas por alguno de los extremos de la llave,
Con el equipo apagado, pon un cassette y presiona las teclas Rec y Play, luego Stop y repites la secuencia varias veces, veras que en la llave se desplaza una corredera, donde haz puesto el limpiador
Luego conecta nuevamente , prende pon Play y deber?a funcionar bien
Sino es as?,consulta un servicio t?cnico especializado
Espero pueda resolver el problema

Hello Irena, check that the power cable is properly placed on the back of your Technics and also make sure that it is properly placed on the side of the power outlet, controls the outlet, works well, connecting a lamp, if it's OK, use it for the CD player
if it keeps failing you, there you would have, a problem inside the device
I suggest you look for a specialized technical service

if you open the panel look around for some blown fuses. be sure to unplug the receiver before and let it sit because there are two capacitors in there that hold a lethal charge of electricity. it could be a fuse but most likely its dead. probably a transformer or amp failure.

Sounds like the gear that rotates the cd tray it stripped. Another possibility it that the lithium grease is drying which with make it stick. You can fix it that’s the problem, unplug it, take the cover off and use q tips to wipe off the dry grease and using q tips put some new lithium grease on the gears. Very lightly and don’t get cotton stuck in there

Sorry to disagree but obviously everything has not been checked or the faulty internal component(s) or break(s) in the circuitry would have been discovered and replaced or repaired...
