Pioneer CLD-HF7G on 120 v power.

Hello

I just ordered Pioneer CLD-HF7G Laserdisc player. I have simple question. Does this model work on usa voltage ( i have 230-115 step down converter). I know back panel says 100v (japan) but i have heared that some Japan players use identical power supplys as their usa counterparts.

If the player reacquires 100v power i´ll get new converter.

If i´m not mistaken this player is essentially CLD-79.

Thanks

Some of the Japanese player do take 115/120VAC for the input but it is not labeled on the unit. I have not worked on the HF7G so you'll need to remove the top and look on the power supply board where the power cord connects to it. Printed on the power supply board you can read exactly what voltages the power supply was designed for. If it is 100VAC only then if you only step down to 115VAC then you risk the chance of shortening the life of the power supply.


Yes it seems to be related to the CLD-99/79 units from the remote and I/O connector layout in the back, just does not have the Gloss black front like the US models.

Player arrived today. Player is in nice condition, but has slipping spindle. Will see if cleaning the spindle motor clamp and rubber ring helps. Otherwise picture is nice and much better than my old player.

And if anybody is thinking of ordering player like this or hf9g the player will work on USA mains voltage. Internal power supply says 125v.

Thanks to Kurtis for his help.

Best go to pacparts.com and order a VEB1237. It's best to replace the grip pad.

Ok just ordered the part. Should i change the loading belt also even when there is no problem whit it. Just thinking because the rubber is over 20 years old.

I´m quite amazed of difference in picture quality between my old CLD-2950 (considered one of the best European players) and this unit. Really pleased whit it. I´m running it whit composite to Faroudja DVP-1010 -> DVDO VP50PRO for aspect-ratio control to my tv. Great picture

Search for a SCQ3.6 on the internet and order one. I'd replace it too

Hi Aaltonen-H and Kurtis,

Glad your enjoying your HF7G. I also bought one from eBay and just waiting for it to arrive.
That was one of my concerns regarding the voltage, but from your findings, and what the seller has said, it should be fine.
Is the grip pad and the SCQ 3.6 a challenge to change over? Can these components be accessed without unscrewing anything with regards to the laser assembly and side flipper rail?

Regards
