Sure you can.for 12 years I was a prefferred service agent for Pioneer. I have repaired dozens of these units with this problem. It has been happening since they came up with the six disc changer mech
. The Pioneer preferred way is to replace the optic, set the diffraction
grating(not an easy task without the right gear) and mechanical alignment of the new optics. DO NOT USE CYNOACRYLATE
BASED GLUES This is super glue. the fumes will cloud the lens and render it useless, I use Tarzan's
Grip, a clear general purpose repair glue,used for say china,metal plastic etc.
- I always make sure that the lens in orientated the same way as it came out. You can usually tell by the glue marks on the sides of the lens and the holder it seats into.
- Refit the lens, then dab the sides of it and the holder, don't get too carried away.
- I use at least 3-4 dabs about the sides of the lens, but don't put it under the lens before you seat it .
- I then put something on top of it for at least 12 hours till the glue sets. then hopefully if all went as planned, it should again work.
I used to always check focal offset and tracking offsets, and tweak also the RF pattern to refocus the repaired assembly. You
do need test gear to do that, but generally
, the player will work if the lens is seated correctly and secured properly. Happy to talk to you more about my experience doing this job,or answer any questions about it.
