The usual cause of this is a dirty lens.
I assume you have carefully cleaned it ?

Do you have a manual ?
It gives the diagnostic routines.
The manual is available on Ray's site (page 1 of the long thread on Cd 63/73)

If it ain't broke, break it !! Then fix it again. It's called DIY !

i just clean the lens surface only (for the original pick-up)... no cleaning for VAM as it was taken from working Philips CDP....

from my observations;

original pick-up (CDM12.1)
1/. lens => do some focusing ( however laser light can't be seen)
2/. with CDs, the spindle motor SPIN ClockWise for 1-2 sec, then it reverse
AntiClockwise (abnormal right???).

replacement pick-up (VAM)
1/. nothing happend.

thanks for the manual Andy...
hope the diagnostic routines could help tonite.
