Re: Laser reader

Hi ,

Do you intend to replace the laser pickup yourself. If you are going to replace the laser yourself, you will need to take a look at the laser pickup and specify the number writen on it . Normally the number will start with the alphabets KSS___ .

If you give me the number, i can let you know if there is stock which can be shipped to you

With Regards,

The problem is in the laser for sure. Try cleaning with a cd cleaning tool. It's the easiest solution because changing the laser is not always available solution.

Don't read disk. Any disk. Don't see disk. IC 102?

Is the laser shooting up? If the red laser is there when u press play, then there's alignment issue with TX and track balance or the laser is getting weaker that its not powerful enough to read the cd. If ure a professional in tuning it, then fine tune it to make it reach the disc. If u have no idea what im talking about, then get the diagram and check for voltage and alignment instructions

Disc door keeps opening.

The drawer belt may also lift the laser up to meet the CD . If the belt is bad , the CD player will kick out the CD.
Change the belt.

CD player won't read cd's

If taking the cover off doesnt scare you, Unplug the AC and any other cables.
Take the top off the unit.
Get a can of compressed CO2 "Dust-off" or similar . Shoot a couple few sprays of that in towards the laser pickup area. Check for dust or grime anywhere near the laser area and clean.

If you trust yourself enough to open the case w/o breaking stuff, then open it up UNPLUGGED, locate the laser lens (small,clear,plastic) gently clean the lens with a swab of lens cleaner for glasses.
Also clean the chrome runners that the laser assembly tracks on.

GG  My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player.  The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader.  They get dust on them and simply cannot read.  The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.

Laser might not be faulty but just a dirty lens/ rail assembly.
If thou darest open the thing, clean the lens ( GENTLY) with a swab of glass lens cleaner. Clean the chrome runners for the optics assby with a swab lcaed with WD40 or silicone.
