SOURCE: Sony DVD player has a new laser assembly, but won't play discs.

I think you have taken on a great task. There are many steps to setting up the lasers before auto align can work. There are manual settings which need to be done. The manual will be helpful, however there is a knowledge of how to do the initial settings needed in order to get the unit just to recognize there is a disk waiting to be played. That happens in what is the initializing stage. If the settings are incorrect the unit won't even see a disc. I used to own a service center that was authorized by over 70 manufacturers. Laser replacement was never a swap and play thing. Alignment was always critical. And one more thing you should know. If the laser is too hot after you get it playing it will go bad quickly. You need a meter to check that as well. God luck Rob

You do not tell us what laser assembly you need. It could have a KSS number or other number. Check with MCM Electronics to see what they have. It might be just what you need.

Hello, I own several CDR from Onkyo (DX-RD511) and a Philips CDR779. All of them have problems with the CD loader laser VAM 1250 - drops or no disk from time to time. All the laser units are compatible...

There is no such memory units in any laser unit till as u mensioned . You can check that in the pdf of VAM1250 the bellow link. There is only one chance can be the new laser unit is a faulty one or it have some manufacturing defect. Just check with CDM12.4 Laser pick up unit. Its the same with the VAM1250 except the machanisum.

One for reading the DVD and the other for reading the CD. In your player the DVD laser is faulty. As it is one module you have to replace the laser pickup unit as a whole. You will get it from any electronic spare part shope near to you. As a whole i mean Normally laser pickup units come with its mechanism like in the picture . May have slight difference with your one. picture is only for reference. Its part number will be written on the bottom side of the laser unit. you have to take the laser unit as sample when you are going to buy the same.

Doesnt read all the cd


There are two reasons for this trouble. First one is Laser Pickup Unit fault. Second one is the strip wire connected from the Laser Pick Up Unit to the printed circuit board have broken carbon tracks in it. You just replace the strip wire, first, and see if it helps. If not replace the Laser Pickup Unit. Ok

The Player does not work with Compact Discs.Hoiw to rectify prob

I have had this problem quite a few times and I will explain. In the laser pick-up of a DVD player it is, in fact, TWO lasers in one block. One plays CD/MP3 discs and other plays DVD's. It's more than likely that the CD laser has gone faulty which means you can only play DVD.
I have also had the reverse problem of it only plays CD's and not DVD. If you are not too upset that you cannot play CD's then just use it as a DVD player. If you want you can try to clean the lens of the laser block, but it's unlikely that will cure it.
You have two options. Use it as a DVD player only or get the optical block replaced, but it will cost you just as much as another DVD player if not more!
Hope this helps :-).

try a lens cleaning cd,if this doesnt work is more than likely optic (laser) faulty as laser has to focus first before spinning disc.if it cannot focus disc will not spin..
