How can I get my Technics CD player to produce sound?

I have a Technics SL-CH570 CD player that has stopped producing sound. The only way to get any sound at all is to turn my volume up to full and then the sound is only just legible. All the other units of the system i.e. the tape deck and the tuner both work fine and as normal.
How can I fix it please?

You've got dry joints around the mute circuit. Take it to your local hi-fi repair shop for repair.

check the ribbon cable that connects the units to the amp. I would assume that if the cd player is reading the disc, and there is signal present, the ribbon cable is suspect. If you can, get switch cleaner, or isoproyl alcohol and clean the contacts on the ribbon cable and the connector on both ends(amp and cd). If this doesnt work, then I'd atempt to get your hands on a multimeter and check the continuity and resistance of each lead in the cable.
