Default Arcam CD92 laser help

I recently brought a 2nd hand Arcam CD92 player, but its laser had died. So I opened it up and saw a KSS240A laser, borught a new one and it worked.

I read this guide on a guy restoring a Arcam CD92
http://www.condoraudio.com/wp-conten...ion-Repair.pdf

And he states that the CD92 would of come with a KSS213C laser. So I ordered one and today I find the ribbon connection the the 213C is wider than the 240C.

Am I missing something here, or is the guide wrong?

Thanks

Maybe there are different versions of the player mk1 mk2 etc. If yours has a KSS240 then that is the only pickup that will work. The KSS240 has the RF amplifier and other electronics mounted on the pickup rather than on the main PCB.

KSS240 practical info here,
