From what I can see with the top off, as the drawer opens, what appears to be the clamping mechanism lifts. As the drawer closes with a disc, that clamping mechanism drops, and something near the rear slides forward about an inch, making a slight noise, pauses for a couple of seconds, and then moves back to its original position, again making a slight noise (akin to a buzzing). The player display reads "play" during this process, then changes to all zeros for track number and time. After that, the player just sits there, nothing moving, and there is no error message.
I can't even see where the laser is located, so I've no way to see if cleaning it could resolve the issue. Does anyone have any advice as to how to proceed? Any help would be greatly appreciated - I've got many discs not released on DVD in the US, and it's frustrating that this beautiful device isn't working.
You need to remove the top Audio board to get to the pulley or gears that are under the right side of the tray to turn manually with your finger, one direction will load the tray and raise the mechanics, the other will lower the mechanics and push the tray out.
Try putting the disc in the tray and then press "Side B" to close the tray. See if it goes to side B.
Also; do you have the problem with ALL LD's you own?
Just saw this thread and hoping to get a response.
I have a CLD-D504 that I purchased on ebay. The Laserdisc player was damaged during shipping and the front panel on the right side by the word Karaoke was damaged and as a result the unit will not power on. Opening the LD player I see that there is a broken circuit board by where the microphone is supposed to plug in. I am not able to tell if anything else is broken as I have not figured out how to manually remove the disc tray. If possible do you know of an easy way to remove the disc tray so I can see if there is any way to obtain a replacement part for the broken circuitry?
Thank you for the quick reply. Unfortunately the gear is completely unmovable, it appears something is wedged against it. Also the board is broken in numerous spots now that I've seen it a bit more closely(Broken in about 4 pieces) Once again thank you for your help on this issue.
My laserdisc player (PIONEER HLD-X0) is making a strange thing. When i make foward it goes foward for 2 to 3 minutes, then stops, the picture stays like it was on "pause mode" and i keep hearing a noise like something was trying to fix but it can't.
Sometimes when that happens the disc comes back in time like 10 minutes or more, it's like the laser is out of control.
Also when i search for chapters i must only click 2 or 3 times at most so it won't stop, otherwise it stops.
Is this anything serious?
But the player is perfect, amazing picture, working good and everything.
I have taken off the top, and the fuse does look like it is blown. Can someone tell me exactly what diode is the one I am supposed to clip out? Is it the little striped one next to where the power comes in?
And where does one get new fuses? Are they the sort of thing one finds at Radio Shack or Fry's? Anyone know exactly what fuse I should ask for/
Thanks in advance for any replies. I don't play lasers much anymore, but I don't like having no backup player for when I do (and the Pioneer had AC3 out and a digital optical out, which the RCA lacks).
