So frustrated tonight, I bought a new Sanyo laser head so I started out replacing the laser that was playing fine the night before, the new laser can't read any CD at all. I checked the height of the turn atble and measure correct so I start adjusting the vr until it reads the toc but plays with shattered sound only, after spending hours still couldn't get it to play correctly. I put back the original laser but also failed to play, I think I messed up something but couldn't figure out yet, may be the ribbon cable turn bad....I don't know!

Can you check the eye pattern as Tibi described a few posts ago?
Does the sled move freely?

By the way, today the thinness I described yesterday was almost gone. That damn fresh solder...
I later replaced R48 and R49 with Dale CMF55. The initial result was some more clarity and more extension to top and bottom. Especially top. Let s see how this one goes... Tomorrow I ll do some more listening and then try the 100-300-100 pi-pad.

By the way, has anyone tried removing that metal ring on the spindle?
If we do not use a magnetic puck it probably just sits there rattling

I haven't but it seems like if it's removed it might just as easily create a cavity which could lead to vibrational resonances.

What is the name of this cable shoe, I have 4 too little.
Myself have 1 broken but I want order 20 pieces spare parts.
No good connection I must this soldering have no special tools for this.
And Yes, this connection breaks so easy

Too bad I had hoped that this cable was already made, plug in and play.
Ready mounted and tested

First, go try this connection then everything directly soldered on the PCB.

Regards,
Rudy

Those guys seem to be called crimps for pin headers...
I am using pretty much the same ones for another project. pin spacing probably is 2.54mm...
