Sony DAV-S400 Laser Unit Replacement

I have managed to locate a new laser unit for my DAV-S400 which I need to fit (due to the old hybrid SACD playback problem). Does anybody have any experience in doing this? Is it fairly easy? Any advice, instructions would be gratefully received !

Sony DAV DZ 260 does not read any disks


Hello
You may have its user manual with you now I assumes. The page describes the format of recordings the set can play. The other formats cannot play with this set.Refer to the manual. If the set do not detect disc that has been payed well before, the Laser Pickup Unit, along with it connecting strip [the strip wire connected to aser pickup unit to main baord] need to be replaced. Just replace the strip wire first. If it does not help you replace the laser pickup unit. Soney will have special type of laser pickup units. The number to the unit is important to note when you buy a new one. It will be best to get this set repaired by Authorised Service Center for Sony at your town. OK.

Skipping disc


Hello
Skipping of all types of discs, whethere it is old or new, is due the Laser Pickup Unit problem and is common to all CD playeres whatever brand it may be. Your Sony has also this proble. There is no other way than replace the Laser Pickup Unit with same type and number. Insist on same type and number, since Sony uses special number and type. OK.

Won't play disc


Unit is old enough that the laser pickup may be worn out. Not an uncommon problem with older disc players. You may try to obtain the laser pickup yourself at someplace like MCM eletctronics

Movie freezes, skips.


Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!

DVD skips or freezes when playing and not related to a scratched or dirty DVD


I think that this is the laser unit as I have three of these units and I have swapped everything but the laser unit.
