Its was outsourced from Panasonic.
If you are having tracking problems, it is quite easy to adjust. Clean the lens with a lens cleaner disc or a photo camera lens cleaner.
Find 6 trimpots on the side of the transport.
Let me know the markings by the trimpots and what kind of problems are you having with the unit.
All the besr

Carlos,
Not sure if it is a problem but my Icon doesn't play CDRs very well. I can't tell if 1x burn improves or not.

As to the pots on the transport, here are the reference numbers:

TR0 TRG F00 F00 PD B TR B
VR103 VR102 VR104 VR105 VR101 VR106
TR0 TEG FEG

Any suggestions to help improve playing of CDRs?

Thanks,
rick

Default CAL laser transport

If someone is looking for a brand new, OEM, CAL laser transport- I've got one. I thought mine needed one when my Icon got intermittent, but it was the small switch that senses the drawer closure out of adjustment. Bought it- never installed it.

There's a shop in New York that was an authorized warranty station for CAL. I don't know if they'll share their schematics, but it's worth a try. repair@approvedaudioservice.com The tech's name is Larry. I've owned the Sigma and still have an Alpha. Yes- IT IS a shame they got absorbed!! I guess there was a lot more money in video.
