Default Pick-up replacement

Hi all
I recently purchased a 2nd had Rotel RCD-02 CDP. Unfortunatly I discovered it had playback problems. Some CDs would suffer jitter as well as it being selective of which discs it would playback. My friend and I decided it was most likely to be the CD pick up, so I ordered two KSS213Cs(as specified in the service manual) from CPC. We have now fitted both modules and neither appears to work. Both post "NO DISC" error. Though replace the orignal pick-up and everything's fine, albeit with its original traits. I
am I missing something blindingly obvious??? Or have I got two dud modules?? Or is it that there are variations on the said pick-up???
Cheers
James

I'm not familiar with that laser assembly but check for anti-static solder blob that has to be desoldered. Make sure you take anti-static precautions when changing the laser assembly.

You have to desolder the blob indeed.

Thanks for the replies guys. Discovered a solder blob on two pads on the PCB. De-soldered and bingo!! So all is working again and it appears to have cured all the read and jitter problems.
Cheers for help

Default How to fit the above laser assembly?

You mention a solder blob, could you say exactly where this is & are there any cables to solder, do you have to unattach any cables to take out the assembly to be replaced, also is it an easy thing to fit as i have never done this before.
Lee.

It's on the pickup and should be fairly easy to see. It just shorts the LD out for static protection. The KSSxxx pickups all plug in with no soldering.

Cheers, thanks for the info, if only for a photo guide on how to do this, this would save me a bundle if i could fit it myself, do you know of anywhere there may be a photo guide on this.
Many thanks, Lee.

Can't recall any specific guides but the KSS pickups are usually a doddle to change... as in minutes. Its all straightforward mechanical disassembly.
