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.

Changer works but display reads no disc


the lens on the optical pickup is dirty and needs cleaning. they sell a lens cleaner disk at any electronics store. you also might want to blow any dust out of the unit with canned air to prevent it from happening again.

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

Getting 'no disc'


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc', code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

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.

robotek
