Don't know if the tech there was knowledgeable enough or did not want to spend the time to determine what was actually wrong and get the correct part, if that was still possible. With that said, since I cannot get parts to swap things out to get it to work, I'll put it out for someone if they need parts.
I could always use it for parts.

Hi Kurtis, hope you are doing fine.


I removed the damaged (cut) ribbon cable from the laser assembly and with power off I closed manually the front tray. Now without the ribbon cable connected it doesn't open with poweron, so how do I manually oopen the front drawer/tray; I tried to remove the front panel without any luck, I broke one lower tab instead.
Player is the european CLD-D925.


Many thanks in advance!!!

You will see a pulley at the very front power supply side under the tray. Turning that one way opens the tray, the other will lift the mechanism.

Many thanks Kurtis! I opened it very easily this way. You are king!


By the way, do you know if the 925 uses the same laser assembly or pick-up with other players (maybe the CLD-D515 or the S315; The brown safety tab that locks the ribbon cable on the laser assembly is broken

This laser is used in all of the latest versions of the CLD and DVL player except for the CLD-D704, CLD-99, CLD-79, LD-S9 and HLD-X9 type players. The older players used a totally different pickup.

Thank you very much for the reply. If these used the same laser assembly then maybe I could find a damaged or not working player just for parts. The brown safety tab I have broken is the one pictured, do you know if I can take this out easily from another pickup assembly if I find one;

The part that broke is a guide. You can slip it in at the proper place and it will hold the ribbon cable. The flat bar at the back is what makes the pressure for proper contact. If you want a complete one they are pretty easy to remove.

Thank you very much, you are very helpful! A living laserdisc player library!
I asked by phone a technician in Pioneer service here in Greece with both of us looking at the service manual but he had no idea of that part which one was for sure. He said it should be the number 59 Carriage Assy which is Part No. VWT1110 59 on page 9 and 10 of the service manual on paragraph 2.6 Servo Mechanism Section. Of course from the diagram picture you can't be sure and he generally had no idea on laserdisc players, but on paragraph 2.8 Carriage Assy on page 12 I see it writes that the small board with the ribbon cable connector where the broken guide is on it, has no service part no. It seems this part goes together with the laser.

I’m on vacation but VWT1110 sounds right. VWT1141 is the DVL version that would have the improved MHolder.
