Default soad cd transport

i've looked all over the place for SOAD 70A cd mechanism .
these were made by technics and found in many different models.
i've seen some sites that mention them but still no luck.
would anyone know where i can find one?
thank you.

I've got a working Panasonic CD player, an SL-PJ224, that I am pretty sure has one. One the bottom side of the attached servo board, there are two main SMT ICs, an 8373S and an 8374S. On the top side, there is one through hole IC (which appears to be the BTL driver) marked AN8377N. Does this sound right? It looks like the picture I have attached.

Pay the postage, and it's yours. I can send the mech and servo board, or even the whole loader if you want.

You haven't got PM switched on.

Also, what CD player are you putting this in? Are you really sure it is the mech that is the problem?

the controls and remote seem to work fine,the laser head only returns to its initial position but spindle does not operate nor does the head move otherwise.
it slowly started to have disc reading errors for the past 2 years or so.
so i'm assuming but?
player not worth much but liked the sound of it.very fluid.
thanks

Glad to hear it worked. It is quite cool how mechs like this are pluga and play, with the servo attached. No fiddling round adjusting stuff.

The shipping was even faster than you think, it spent half the time in transit sitting in US customs.
