As for the Optical Laser pickup replacement for the Sony BDP-CX960, I see you can get just the optical pickup, or the entire drive mechanism (if indeed it is the same mechanism) for a few bucks more. Wouldn't be easier to replace the latter? I have just started to get these Invalid Disc errors and I am debating buying a new OPPO or try repairing the Sony.

I paid for the full mechanism and it wasn't worth it, the one ribbon cable is way to short so I just took the laser piece and changed it out. Possibly I could of swapped the circuit board with the short cable to the new mechanism but no idea if there would be an incompatibility and once you take one of these apart and put back together you don't want to do it anytime soon.

Having said that the laser unit works from the mechanism also.

Hope that helps!

Ok major issue, I replaced the laser and now the unit reads dvds and blu ray but not CDs. Any ideas?

Did a reset from the settings menu and now the CDs are playing. Very odd.
