Instead of posting to the flea market, I think I have a bigger chance to ask here.

I have a couple JVC transports and main boards but no CD display and control board/module. I wonder anyone has a spare to sell? If not, maybe I can buy this part
from Tibi and modify the connector to fit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Best medium for blank cd-rom is Taiyo-Yuden. Sony and TDK are also OK.

Under Windows use EAC for CD ripping.
Under Linux use cdparanoya or Asunder and write with cdrecord by Jörg Schilling

Hi Tibi,
I am using a Plextor Premium CD writter to burn CDs now and everyone of them can be read by the Sanyo laser. The Shigaclone is working nicely.

Thanks

Hi endia,

Have you took these pictures while initial CD TOC reading sequence ?
PLease check flat cable.
Please check main power supply to be 8V.
Measure potential al V1,V2,V3,V4.
Do the CD door button initiate TOC reading ?

Regards,
Tibi

Hmm, revisiting the oscillator subject. Tent Labs offers a a XO, a VCXO, and XO2.2 and XO3.2 clocks that seem to require matching XO power supplies. Not quite sure how many of these are applicable for consideration on the Shiga kit.

In the BOM you have a link to the product https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...xSldyUUE#gid=0
