Anyone have an old Technics CD player, circa 1984-6? SL-P1, SL-P2, SL-P3, SL-P7, SL-P8, and SL-PJ1? Does it randomly skip across a CD or have digitial distortion? I fixed mine by replacing the drive belt for the laser servo. It is pretty easy too. 1) Take the top off 2) Take the screw off the front panel on the bottom 3) Carefully pull the front off and gently balance it on the top away from the transport 4) Remove the four (4) pink transport hold down screws 5) Pull up the transport and flip over, resting carefully on the base plate 6) Remove the one screw (indicated on the board under the transport) that holds the transport in 7) release the white plastic clip that holds the bottom board, pull out board, careful where you put it 8) Look at the worm gear and the belt attached to it on the motor spindle 9) Remove the drive belt and let it hang 10) Pop the worm gear out by pressing the white clip back and pushing on the worm gear head 11) Remove the worm gear and clean it with Brake cleaner (automotive stores) or electrical cleaner 12) Relube it with light grease or graphite grease 13) Put the belt on the head of the worm gear 14) Pop the worm gear back in and make sure the it freely rotates; make sure the laser sled arm is past the limit switch 15) Check the laser sled rails that they are clean 16) Reassemble Good luck. These things are built to last. All they need is a belt and some cleaning. The belt is part no. SRGB007N03 from Panasonic Service Parts.
