Question about Pioneer DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I own a Pioneer Elite DV-38A DVD player. I recently started experiencing tracking problems with discs of all types. This included skipping and locking up among other symptoms. Now the player will not accept a disc of any kind. When I insert a disc and press the close button the drawer closes, the display shows loading and then open, and then the disc is spat out. I have tried dozens of discs and the player now completely refuses to accept and load any disc I put into it. The player is approximately five to six years old and has seen relatively heavy use as the primary transport in my system. Does this in all likelihood indicate that the transport is pooched?If so would this be worth getting fixed? If so how much am I looking at paying,ballpark? Could it be something else more benign? I would surely appreciate any input you may have. Thanks
Do you used a laser lens cleaning disc periodically cleaning the lens after every 8 hours of use or so ?
if not, and if the laser itself still is functioning , then manual cleaning of the lens with a drop of cleaning solution on a q-tip and then dry cleaning it with the other end of the q-tip , will get it going again
otherwise gears may need grease or worse, there is a problem with the laser , laser focus , or signal board , so then testing will need to be done to find out which has failed
