If you can't put it back then the laser unit is no good anyway so it may be worth a try. I would not recomend super glue because it outgasses a substance that may cloud the lens. (that is how they use super glue to get finger prints from objects) Maybe use a thin film (very thin film) of rubber cement very carefully applied to the edge of the lens would do the trick. You must act fast because rubber cement cures so very fast. Another possible glue would be epoxy. It would give you a little more time before it starts to set up. Be sure you have the correct side up when you attach the lens, and be SURE that it is well seated in its socket so that you don't screw up the focus of the laser. Do a dry run or two with no glue to get the feel of what it takes. Don't forget to clean the "inside" side of the lens before you glue it in. You can clean the outside once it is glued in place. If all else fails you still are in a situation where you have to change out the laser assembly. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Good luck.

SOURCE: Pioneer PD-M501 6-CD Player manual and what magazine cartridge

The standard cartridge for the Pioneer PD-M501 is the Pioneer JD-M300 6-disc magazine, and you can find them at Amazon.com for $25 new. The JD-M300 fits a lot of different brands of CD players, not just this particular brand and model. And here's a link to a copy of the owner's manual: http://www.scribd.com/doc/22613342/Pioneer-PD-M601-M551-M501

Hi,
The player have problem with the laser pickup unit.
Try one thing, there is a disc available for cleaning the laser pickup unit (). You will get in any cd shops(instructions will come with it). Buy the cd and the insert it in any one of the tray. It will clean the laser unit if there is any dust in it. After cleaning put a disc and check is the problem remains. If the problem remains the you have to change the laser pick up unit. You can fin a link here which will lead you to the laser pick up unit. You will get the part only against confirm order.

Pioneer PD-M40 changes through all 6 cds but does not stop to read any of them


The laser pickup assembly is at the end of life, remove top to expose the laser lens, use a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and gently clean, allow several minutes to dry, if no change! far cheaper to replace the cd changer.

My Pioneer PD-TM1 18 Disc player reads through all three disc magazines searching on each individual CD disc one at a time, and then will not play any one of the disc?


Seen alot of these "drop" the laser lens inside the unit! Have had some luck glueing the lens back on using radio/tv cement. Don't try super glue or it will ruin the lens! No luck replace the laser!

Turned on my Pioneer PD M501 one day and it would not play. Disc tray will not retract into cartridge and cartridge will not eject.


Sometimes the little ball bearings that keep the cart trays separated come out causing tray jams.
Make sure your tray retracts all the way into the player flush with the face plate, gently push it in while retracting for those occasional no-read situations. (Also for Denon that takes these same carts). Also note that the CDs go in the Upside Down position.

Can't remove cd cartridge because won't power up.


With the top off the unit, you can turn the tray gears manually for slow eject function. Unplug unit before touching anything inside, check internal fuses.
Sometimes the little ball bearings that keep the cart trays separated come out causing tray jams and shorts.
Make sure your tray retracts all the way into the player flush with the face plate when loading, gently push it in while retracting for those occasional no-read situations. (Also for Denon that takes these same carts). Also note that the CDs go in the Upside Down position.

Have a pioneer cd player model number PD-Z560T. Has started making my cd's jump while i'm playing them.Have tryed cd lens laser cleaning disc but still no good any ideas?


Hi,

My cd unit on the pioneer pd-z560t also jumps. I also tried lens cleaner, with no luck.

It was suggested to me that cleaner is only any good for a good - but dirty - lens, but no good if the lens has actually deteriorated and become weak.

I would be curious to know how a lens could actually deteriorate pls.

plese try to reply to: clerical@live.co.uk

Thanks

Pd-m403 cd player skips thru all six cds (they are oriented correctly) without playing any selection, then get a message "no disc"


Hi there

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.
