I'm almost certain this has been answered before, but bear with my inability to search forums efficiently.
Now, My buddy picked up Cld-D604 laserdisc player at Pawn America. I personally never shop there due to bad customer service and defective products in the past, and this was no exception. The player he received was essentially dead.
I ordered a replacement spindle motor off of the Pioneer Website (it came all the way from Japan!) and replaced that. Now thing plays both CD's and Laserdiscs without much issue.
The problem I AM having though, is that when playing a laserdisc, the lift mech is..... fickle. It'll go halfway up, and then I have to nudge it upwards (have to have the top case off). I don't have this issue when playing CD's.
So, I've read that it's either a slipping belt or some binding in the metal track (???). Sooo, I can't really find the belt I'm supposed to be looking for. I think the pictures I saw must be for a different model. If the track needs re-allignment, I guess I need to know what that would entail.
We figured out the hard stuff, so if you can help me with this small issue, I'd be super grateful!
