Initial Televison & Video - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


1st, I think the term 'Expert' is used too loosely here, at least for me. LOL. I just had the pleasure of fixing an IDM-1731 with a 'No Disc' error. It just so happens that calibrating the drive helped me out.

For any of you that feel like taking a risk & opening up your player, I urge caution when handling the optical lens. There are 2 pots located above the ribbon on the end that connects to the lens to the left. The 1 on left I touched to the right & that helped me out. I'm thinking that the vibration caused the player to get out of whack as time goes on.

After getting the player to work, I took measurements with my multimeter. The left pot measures 3.06 k ohms & the right measures .965 k ohms. I hope this helps others out as it did for me.
