Default sony cdp 333 ESD

hi..

i've got one of these eighties beasts and am having intermittent problems with the TOC reading, the CD's need ejecting a couple of times sometimes before they get read correctly. After that they play fine until ejected..

i've cleaned the lens.. the problem is still there..

does anyone have a service manual or could point me towards any possible fixes?

If I can get this to work reliably, I'm going to try some mods on it.

lots of images and specs from this japanese site:

This looks very much like the Sony BU-1E laser assembly, if you've cleaned the optics and the trouble is still there, then your last option is to clean both sled rails very well with Metho or alcohol from front to back then with a cotton bud dipped in sewing machine oil lightly re-lube the rails. As this unit is very old, the old lube can get dirty and dry out causing the sled to become sticky.
If all this fails you maybe up for a new laser and they are rare as.

Yep, Bernhard sold me a good one took about 1/2 hr to replace worked perfect, then I sold the 39kg Onkyo.

thanks john.. that would be great if you did..

i think i've fixed my initial problem...

the main tray sleds were slightly sticky, so i cleaned and regreased these and the tray now moves very smoothly. I also carefully did the same to the rails that the optics run on. This and a lens clean seems to have made switch on TOC reading much better...

I also noticed a loose bracked that appeared to protect the fine ribbon cable from the sliding optic assembly. The screw must have worked loose. Maybe this was related?


thanks again

adrian

Default CDP 333ESD service manual

Hi!
Is it possible for somebody to send me a scanned copy of the service manual for the CDP 333ESD please?

I just bought one, had it delivered, and it shows exactly the same problem, no TOC reading and no disc initial spin.

My e-mail is: radko71@avb.bg

Thanks all in advance!!!

Regards,
