Question KSS151A...Laser replacement....

I got an old beloved player with a tired laser.....it have lasted about 12-13 years now, and have just stopped to read TOC on some of mine CDR's (only the one's made with Musicmatch for now, but other players read it...)
CDRW's is totaly out of the question.
(don't know if it's suppose to/should read CDRW's)

The laser is a KSS151A made of Sony.

Does anybode have/ know where to get a spare one ?

Alternatively I could bye another player with "low mileage" with the same type of laser inside, but then I had to know witch one to pick. Preferably an "old" Sony maybe.
Have read somewhere on the net (Danish HiFi-forum I belive) that this Sony-laser have lasted "longer" in original Sony equipment. Don't know if this is true, but "no smoke without fire" or.... ???.
I know this laser have been used by TEAC, Aiwa, Akai, Denon, and some Sony models (and maybe others !?), but I don't know the specific models

Suggestions with information on witch player uses this laser would be appreciated !!

Regards
Lyra

Test the laser power?

Is that an easy task?

I have a beautifull old player with a very stable belt driven transport which is not functioning properly anymore. I suspect that the laser power has diminished and just put it in the attick thinking wheter it is worthwile sending it to a repair shop.

It has a SOAD70A laser if I recall and they are pretty expensive(154+tax+transport+installation)

When searching for the KSS151A the number 884806401 keep turning up....!?

A replacement i think, or maybe a new and better (?) version of the old one.

Anybody know the difference between theese ?
...or is KSS151A = 884806401 ?

If they where 100% the same, it is strange that they "all" say that KSS151A is out of stock, and can't be delivered...

All the best!
Lyra

884806401 is the Sony part number.
KSS151A is the device number.
When ordering directly at Sony, it could be handy to have the part number as a reference.
