no advices?
image 3, 5, 8 and 10 shows the similar (maybe same) PCB and Hitachi mechanism HOP-M3 than the KARIK version, I know.
image 4 and 9 shows an other PCB.
The loader of both seems to be a more cheap version as in use by KARIK version.

The CD-ROM has schematics for some of the older amps and preamps, none for the players. Sorry to get your hopes up.

Currently I have such a device for repair (Mimik Ser.-No 003016). The Loader is the model "TCD-FL12" from Sanyo equipped with Hitachi optical pick up HOP-M3A - both also used in Luxman's D357 - go to
Le forum Audio Vintage • Afficher le sujet - LUXMAN D357 - manque un pignon -RESOLU-
and post #4 about
Luxman A373 - D375 - T353 Integr. Amp - CD - FM-Tuner

In which other (cheaper) cd player models from those days are this loader also still in use?

Thank you for advices.

P.S. This MIMIK version I have is a scaled version of the Karik with fewer components (similar or same main PCB)

for this repair I haven't special difficulties (faulty disc motor, contact problems at laser inner switch so as the switch for tray in/out, dirty laser collimator lens of HOP-3MA pickup and dirty keybooad PCB/keyboard rubber for the operation functions at the front), fortunately only usual stuff.
But I want to know nevertheless other CD player models, where this loader is in use. Then I purchase such a model in used condition for such cases, when I will get expensive models like Luxman's D357 or this model with "hard to find" failures.
Then it is much more easy to determine the reasons for errors.
