New cd63 / cd67 question
Where to start?
I have a lightly modded cd67se ( with opa 627 op amps) which I love.
Suffering skipping problems so I fitted a new vam-1201 laser from evil-pay.
Laser will not focus!:eek: (thinking duff new unit)
Picked up a working cd63se as donor unit.
Swapped complete CD reader unit from 63 to 67 (does not function)

Does anyone know
Are the ribbon cable connections the same?
(sockets on the two main boards are a different type)

Could I have cracked a pcb track somewhere?

All suggestions appreciated:)

Answered my own question but might help someone else.

Although the mechanism is the same the control board mounted on the CD player is diferent from cd63 to cd67

plug sequence on cable to main board totally different.

With correct control board on player mech both machines work now.

Interesting discovery - thanks for sharing. I also have CD63, CD67 and currently working on a friend's CD63KI. Patiences pays off. How long did it take you to find the solution?
