Default Sony KHS-130a laser unit

Can anyone point me to a source for a laser assembly for my old but good Theta transport? The original laser is a Sony part no. KHS-130a. (sometimes followed by the suffix "LD". Sony do apparently still have them, but at a monstrous price and a long waiting period. There is or was another (non-genuine?) unit that is listed at about 1/10th the price, but the only importers I can find have had one on back-order since March - meaning, I suppose, that it is no longer a current item with their suppliers. But just maybe there is someone, somewhere in the world sitting with one of these that they don't know how to get rid of. Any suggestions, kind people?

Yes, that looks like the baby. I did find it on some oriental websites a while ago, but they all wanted to sell 10 at a time.

Hi, Hihopes&Mumufon

I got a problem that I still have been looking for part of my Theta LD player. Where can I buy only one laser head assembly of Theta player(Sony part no. KHS-130a)? (If you ask them , they answer, that you have to buy 100pc. or more at one time). Could you please tell me how to contack with the seller who sold only one to you from belgium or any information about this?

Your kindness will be appreciated.
