Sony MDP-740D Problem Reading LD's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone

Just got e Sony MDP-740D Pal/NTSC Player, really nice player. But has a problem, when i insert the LD, it recognizes the LD, the display lights up and doesn't read the disc.
This Player was low used, should't be like that.
I have the possibility to buy a new laser pickup for it. Do you guys think that's the problem?

Unfortunately, the real problem here is that it's a Sony Laserdisc player. Mechanical breakdowns are par for the course.

Hi

Do you think it can be fixed?

Would probably cost you more to fix this one than to replace with a better Pioneer model.

Hi

What the player does is:

The laser and the motor work. If I insert a laserdisc, the motor starts and you can hear that the unit tries to focus. Then it stops, but the display shows "LD"

The unit has very little usage...Can that be a simple Laser cleaning?
