It's just a reminder to me to do not forget the CD. Your goods will be delivered Monday as well.

My main problems where all my own doing. nothing as obvious as bad solder joint or wrong value components.

First big problem was cause by testing on a damp piece of wood wich caused all kinds of problems. Frankly very silly on my part.

Second problem the puck I was using was recovered from a 15 year old boombox it had so much play in it that sometime it worked and sometimes it did'nt. changed the motor spindle to one with 3 ball(no puck) and all is good

I placed the transformer in another box, really dont like transformers near anything else.
I tried to figure out the lcd saturation thing but as far as I can tell all the relevant traces are under the LC chip so unless somebody can enlighten me I'm just gonna have to live with it as is.
Old CD most of mine are over 15 years old tend to have issues mainly scratches which cause skips one CD would not even read TOC it had wierd mould under the plastic.
New CD will play from start to finish perfectly.

blueworm, good to see you got it going.

Here is a pix of where to cut. Be careful and use a sharp pointed X-acto (Razor knife/scalpel...).

The trace is very short. The via is to power. Put the resistor from the via to the pin and don't add a cap.
