I am new here, I’ve been user of DCC-450 with collection of about 50 DCC cassettes for many years.
Recently I’ve acquired a DCC-170 set. However it looks like a player is broken. When connected to AC adapter LCD displays “Charging”. And when trying to play cassette one can only hear sound of whirring motor stop/start sound but no any info on LCD. Is it possible it is broken belt? I thought in that case some info would appear on LCD. Is there any diagnostic mode for DCC-170 or should I disassemble it to know more?
It can have multiple causes. Please watch this video by @drdcc before you disassemble it, it is more complicated than the stationary ones. If you don’t feel comfortable repairing it, you can contact [email protected].
Thanks, movie looks very comprehensive. I believe do have necessary tools and experience to do this, however I’m not sure if I find a spare time to do all this - two small children I’ll think it all over then, perhaps I’ll just sell it and concentrate my maintenance efforts on DCC-450 which works good for now. Are “for sale” topics allowed at all on this forum? I didn’t find this information in general forum rules.
Welcome to the forum.
We are happy to assist you with the repair.
Sales however is not allowed on this forum.
Thanks for clarifying situation - I’ll think about repair carefully and in case of sale will just use ebay - otherwise I’ll come back with questions I guess
