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.

I have a pioneer 6 disc changer and in the move the little lens fell out. I have it but don't know where it goes back

You need to take it to a repair shop, you just can't put the lens back, it needs to be cleaned and aligned.

I Have a Pioneer PD M602 6 disc changer, and I just bought it used. And I cant get it playing. Sometimes say "no disk" ( but the tray is full discs applyed as it schould. It loads one disk after...

To my surprise, CD cleaner disc did it for me. It's a very old Philips one with a bit of furry stuff on the track side. I was amazed it even played, but it did and after letting it run for 20 secs, tried proper discs and it works fine. And this Pioneer PD-M603 is at least 15 years old!Looks like it would be hard to clean the lens manually because it's a long way inside.

I have a Pioneer PD-M550 6-Disc changer. When I try to play a disc, it won't spin... UNLESS I turn the unit upside-down. Then it plays just fine. So the lens is fine, but something is keeping it from...

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 Hope this helps you out and 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.

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.

No Disc Light

HI, the Optical lens assembly has failed. either the attached motor has failed or, the lens has burned out.

this assembly will need to be replaced as a whole by the manufacturer in this case. the replacement parts are not available for consumer purchase.

Contact pioneer for a repair ticket asap.
