What is happening when it doesn't work. Please explain more.

The problem I saw with mine is that when the HDMI was connected to my HDMI matrix, pressing the play function on the front panel would not do anything. Even with the CD in the tay and loaded. the play button would not start. Just sat there. Once I disconnected the HDMI cable and power cycled the player, the play function worked.

Just trying to help you narrow down the issue if possible.

If just using RCA outputs only and the Cd still does not play, then the Drive in the player would need to be changed out. If you have used the player a lot over it's life time, then it would be normal that the laser would burn out. Laser drives are just like light bulbs, they don't last forever.
It turns but does not read, I get "Unknown disk". Its defenitely the cd laser portion of the assembly. I can just go out and purchase an Oppo BDP-103 and toss the POS Pioneer in the trash can. You almost can't fix these things anylonger, not cost effecient. Good thing is that the Blu-ray works! So I can watch movies and listen to some DVD audio discs. Pics attached of my unit today.

You might try cleaning the lens with some de-natured alcohol and see.

If this doesn't work then drive replacement would be needed if you wanted the CD portion to work. You'll need to swap the FW board from told old drive to the new if you DIY.

Good Luck.
