Thanks for your time Chris,

I,ll just carry on googling around for info on this laser but I,ve
seen it advertised in the far east (Photo as well) .but it was complete with the drive electronics and my guess is that it would be prohibitively expensive for this budget player.I may just put it back together and use it in the garden shed as a tape playing receiver.

Hi baggins,
Can you post a picture of the transport?

On trick is to try and make the motor shaft even with the top of the plastic. Sometimes you can feel where the shaft was as you push the table back down after taking it off.

Cheers Danny ,

I,d be glad to have a copy of the manual, in case its something simple like platter height .I think I could manage to set that to within
1/2 a mm .But I,m still in some doubt about a possible missing turning block perhaps the manual would shed some light (no pun intended)
on the matter.

email wlt001@metronet.co.uk

THANKS EVERYONE.

Hi Danny,
If you wouldn't mind, could you please send me a copy as well?

bhomester at gmail dot com .

That sure looks like it was made under some license. The table height may be the same as other sony transports.

Baggins, if you need I can measure one for you.

-Chris

I'm presuming the entire CD player section is just 'bought in', there are no spares available from Sony for it, you have to replace the entire CD mech, P/N 1-796-189-11 MECH, CD. Likewise, the entire cassette mech has to be replaced as well, no individual spares are available for that.

It's possible that the entire unit is simply 'bought in', although they look too 'Sony' to be sure!.

Hi Nigel,
I am inclined to agree with you. The sub assy. is "OEM" from another source.

I could measure some of the other sony CD platter heights already
in my possession but unless you measure like for like it might just be meaningless and what is the datum point anyway ? it cant be the plastic cover I wouldnt have thought !

Incidentely Ive just made my first Mini disk recording on the CMT-MDI
machine I got off ebay (this had no problems apart from cosmetic stuff)
and hey this was a bargain ,what a superb little M/c. Cd quality ( ? ) recordings without the computer from any source THIS I LIKE
