DDC600 Random and Intermittent “No Cassette” and “Cassette Blocked”

Hi All

Firstly I’d like to thank DCC Museum for getting the belt kit and new gear over to me, pretty quickly.

My DCC 600 now plays and records beautifully, I do have an intermittent no cassette and block issue, although a slight bit of pressure on the tray dismisses this error and the machine plays as it should.

This happens maybe once every 10 tray operations and I feel that the tray is just slightly sticking at the end of its travel.

I was wondering if anyone could point me to the lubrication points on the tray mechanism as I feel that might just be the way to get the tray to close every time.

Thanks in advance and please accept my apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I couldn’t locate anything specific on lubrication of the tray.

Lubrication might not be the problem. Are you sure all is mounted correctly? I have never had to lubricate a 600 mechanism.
