Default Technics SL-Z1000 laser unit

Hello all,

First mail here, and imediately to ask for help!...

I have a 15 year old Technics SL-Z1000 CD transport that I adore. It is presently (hopefully not permanently) non functioning as it needs a new laser unit. Unfortunately Technics is not around anymore, although Matsushita, through Panasonis, is present. The laser unit in question (a modified SOAD70a, I was told) is not in stock with Panasonic anymore.
Does anyone know where to find this part, or at least the unmodified SOAD70a? I was also told by a technician that another one, called rfnkzl1000Ia would also fit (I wonder if it is a modified SOAD70a...). I also cold not find this in Panasonic.
I intend to keep this wondeful CD player alive. It is absurd that such an expensive piece of gear is stop because of one part only, while the remain is (at least to me knowledge and feeling) perfectly OK.
And it plays (when it does) better then 99.9% of the staff in the marker nowadays...

Thanks for the help!!

Best regards and Merry Christmas,

Pedro

Look on the label on laser pic-up (number) like Sony's KSS , and visit: www.ersatzteil.justone-nepel.de .

Hello,

I am new on this forum.
I own a Technics SL Z 1000 too. It is a very good sounding machine. I combined it with the Audionote Dac 2.1 Sig.

I never had troubles with it. But now the transportholder does not com out sometimes.
How can you solve this problem. Is there any maintenance necessary??

You need to change rubber belts that move the tray. I did it twice already.

Don't look for originals, just use something that is similar in size.

Default technics SL-Z1000

I'm a total newbie to these type of sites.
Just wanted to know if there's somewhere I can take the unit to upgrade some parts like the caps.
I've seen many suggestions on this forum but won't be able to do anything myself.
I may be selling the DAC/transport combo as I've had it for years and want to try something different.

You can also replace laser diode in original one. You will be sure that it's be working for a long time. It can't be said about another old one.
