try 'wes' in Australia.

They have a fair selection, or might be able to suggest an equivalent.

I had a similar problem looking for a KSS270A (884815911) but found the KSS271A (884820911) was a replacement and WES is obtaining that from Sony for me.

Check if there might be a newer replacement from a later model.

It helps if you have the Sony part number when searching for one as you get more hits.

Very frustrating finding these lasers but like you, would not want to give up the player.... mine's a CDPX55ES.

There is an European source, although a bit expensive:

Hi rabbitz ,

Thank you for the tip . If you get it , please let me know !!

Months ago I had a similar problem with one clientís
CDPX55ES , and I could not get this part to replace , then
he is waiting until now . If you can , please report to me
anything new about that .

Hi oshifis ,

I already had made contact with them , and Iím waiting the
reply , if they still have it on the stock .

By the way , do you know if they are a RELIABLE source ???
I am a bit confused with their prices

Thanks for the inputs ,

Carlos
