Question about Hitachi DV-PF2U DVD Player/VCR
Unfortunately - you seems to be correct. The symptoms you mentioned are highly suggestive of faulty lens. The replacement would solve the purpose as you have tried all DIY tricks like cleaning the lens as well as using lens cleaner.
However, in today's world, i would suggest you to invest the money in new player than to get this repaired. There are couple of reasons for the same. First, it is not easy to get the original lens. You might need to use after market lens or similar lens. There is never a guarantee that it would work for more than a certain duration.Secondly, the cost of lens and the time you would spend is not worth repairing it. There are so many new players you could get even under $50.
If you want to repair it, buy a used non working player :-
Make sure that the lens is fine in that player. I would say it's worth buying the above unit ( make sure that the lens is fine in that player as i have not checked the conditions ) if you really wanted to repair it.
Note - It is really not worth to send it for repair as the repairman would charge you around $50 - $100 labor + parts.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
