Default Need Transport Help!

Hello Everyone,

I've got a California Audio Labs Delta transport that just died. It was working flawlessly in my backup system and no longer works after sitting for a month.

Yes, the unit powers up and all functions seem fine. With the cover off, when a disc is inserted the laser attempts to focus but the disc doesn't spin.

Is there any way to check to see if the laser diode is operating?

It is my understanding that the disc won't spin if the laser can't focus on the disc. Is this correct?

Any suggestions as to what else may be wrong and what I might check?

If I had to guess, the transport looks to be made by Technics. The cd tray says CR2 at the rear. Most of the chips have the Technics name on them.

Silkscreened on the main board are also CU3C and RJB1123A.

Does anyone know for certain who built this transport? Also, what the specific model number is and where I might be able to purchase one?

What about any other cd player models that also use the same transport that I might be able to pickup used?

Finally, does there happen to be an upgraded mechanism that might interchange and replace this one?

I'll attach several pics so you know a bit more..

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks,

Hello Steve,

That looks like a Panasonic Traverse Deck Assembly RAE0113Z.
Wes/Wagner Catalogue .
Wes Components list it at AUS$83.75.

The spin motors on all these machines can develop dead spots on the spin motor commutator causing non starting of disc rotation.
Try giving the disc a flick during initialisation and maybe it will work - if so let me know and I will tell you how to cure this.

Hope this helps,
Eric.

This is the same exact mechanism that I have in my Adcom GCD-750, which I'm having short-range skipping problems with. I thought I would get the whole Traverse Deck when I ordered this part(RAE0113Z) the unit skips a little ahead and then sometimes backwards. I'm thinking this could be a motor problem?

Hi Marc,
It could easily be a motor problem or a lubrication problem. The lubricants are special.
