The Wolf Guy disc is perfect, mint condition. I already watched it on another player with no problems too, and that was a player that already started to have CAV issues. The other disc that had a wobbly startup, 3X3 EYES Vol.1, was sealed so it is perfect as well. The thing that gets me is that it had no problems with CAV discs (including wobble free play of 3X3 EYES, I can guess that because it was whisper quiet playing the disc) until I took the top off and cleaned the spindle which is what is so frustrating, it was so quiet and perfect apart from the damn U1 error! Also, Pioneer directed me to Supertech which is in Bundall on the Gold Coast. I am kind of half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, thanks so much for the offer! One other thing, X9, droool....
Best I can hope for is a R7G or LD-S9 next time I go to Nippon but I guess they are not such bad alternatives
If they are so much better than the D99, I can't wait to see them in action.
P.S The wobbling really only happens as the disc starts to spin up but seems OK once it gets to full speed. I was more worried about the disc being damaged when it was being spun but there are no marks on it thankfully.

Does that mean the laser needs adjusting? It was playing CAV discs perfectly before I cleaned it. The picture also does not seem to be as good now which leads me to believe it needs some tuning to get it perfect again. I was amazed by the lack of chroma noise when I first got the player but having watched 2 discs last night, I could see noise which I did not like. Would you advise that the player not be used until it is serviced in case it does more damage?
Thanks to both of you for the advice!Edited by SegaSonic91 - 10/26/12 at 7:31pm
