Ah, confessions. The remarks were not useless I see.

lol, yeah, I fry a lot of things unless I know what I'm doing...

at least I know what that adjustment in a transport is for now...


I used to always think it was some sort of tracking pot...

BTW, this laser current pot is the only pot in the whole cd player, I can't find any focus or anything!

I guess I just have to work with this then...

Darnit, I just finished the transport mechanism in my cd player.

Anybody got a KSS-213B for sale??

Ripped up a bunch of ribbon cables and knocked some parts off.

Crap! And it was such a nice cd player

Well, kinda slipped cleaning it. I did however find the initial problem...

It seems I got lubricant on the semitransparent mirror inside the pickup assembly when lubricated gears. It as causing the problems especially as it collected dust that may have floated by.

I know I can get another transport for this thing for cheap, I'm just trying to find exactly where...

Isn't there a sign saying that there are no user servicable parts inside ? Lubricating gears ?!?! That's what has to be done with motorcycles

Hey, that thing was sticky as heck. It really needed some oil.

I've lubed many transports with fine results. I guess somehow I dripped some oil right into the transport.

Either way, I think it was ready for a new transport anyhow... The plastic gears in the old one are very worn out and I think the laser was getting a bit weak too.

Even a drop of oil is too much. Best is to put one drop on some cloth and lubricate it this way if it is really necessary.
Only use grease/oil ( grease is preferred over oil ) on the plastic gears that's compatible with plastics. Silicone grease is appropriate. I always hesitate lubricating plastic gears since I learnt as a mechanic that plastic gears only need cleaning, not lubricating.

The chrome rods where the laser runs on are to be cleant with a cloth with some alcohol and afterwards you can put a very tiny drop of teflon oil or "sewing machine oil" on a cloth and lubricate the rods like this.

When oil comes into the laser it is over, but you experienced this yourself now.

I see your point....

I did clean the chrome rod like you said and used sewing machine oil... That was really the only sticky part. I didn't bother too much with the plastics though.... Still, I was using a fairly bulky oil can and I figure that maybe a bit dripped down the side of the can while I wasn't looking.

Anyway, it's not really the end of the world. I hear that the transport in these is quite popular and they sell for somewhere between 15 and 30 bucks USD. I can afford that pretty soon....
