Is there any chance of forwarding a copy of the pdf to me?

I've encountered a simlar problem with my arcam 8se. It skips tracks /7 occasionally doesnt recognise CD's. I've taken the cover off the cd player & cant access the four screws, I beleive from the above posts i needs to removed the black cover from the wheel?

Many Thanks for the assistance.

I've replaced the laser using your instructions without any major issues. The only problem I had was knowing how hard to push the ribbon into the KSS240A (My replacement is a NKS240A??). The PDF is really clear & easy to follow.

Other than the ribbon everything else was relativley easy. Anyway the results are fantastic!!
Even the wife has noticed an improvement? the sound seems to have much more clarity.......
No more track skipping or non recognition of cd'S.

Anyway thanks again for helping me out it really was appreciated!
