Pioneer cd players have the common problem of losing their laser lens due to the glue that holds it in place going brittle over time. try shaking the player from side to side and upside down to see if you can hear the lens rattling about. if you recover the lens, very carefully slot it back in place and apply a tiny drop of glue (NOT SUPERGLUE) to the outside edge of the lens taking care not to get any on the focus area and leave to dry. all should be well after this. i find UHU GLUE in the yellow tubes do a lasting fix but don't use SUPERGLUE as the fumes will coat the lens.

hope this helps?

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.

Hi. You need to replace the opu (optical pickup unt), laser in other words. The laser diode is slowly getting weaker and the lens works in conjuntion with the laser. The reason it works when it's upside down is because gravity is pulling the lens closer to the disc, thus it does not need as much power to focus onto the tracks etched into the disc. Replace opu with type PEA1030 aka PU-23 http://www.donberg.co.uk/catalogue/laser_units_cd_dvd/laser_pu_23.html. Hope this helps you out and good luck.

CDs change without playing. Installed new motor and starts to spin and stops, and cycles through the cartridge.


Check to see if the laser lens is still on the laser!
If not see if its in unit and glue back on with radio/tv cement(don't super glue)! If don't work replace the laser.

I have a Pioneer PDM450. It will scan each of the


A dirty lens on the laser of the CD player or 6 dirty discs. Since it is not likely 6 dirty discs, you have nothing to loose by taking the screws off the back and sides to remove the top cover and try to find the lens. Get a can of "compressed air" and spray it all over the inside of the unit to romove dust bunnies as you work. Take digital photos as you go so you remember how to put it back together.

Good luck, have fun and look at all the neat gears and little motors this thing uses to open the door, close the door, spin the disc, ...

Its really amazing how many parts are in these things for the price they charge these days.

Alternatively, you can bring it in to a local electronics repair shop but it will likely cost you as much as a new unit.

The disc changer isn't reading the discs, instead it will just keep changing discs.


Take the cover off. Look to see if the unit "clamps" on each disc and tries to read it. If it does you need a new laser. A new unit is usually more cost effective though. If your machine doesn't clamp or spin the disc the problem could be mechanical. 99% of the time the laser is at fault. Good Luck!
