Finally, an affordable CD Transport: the Shigaclone story
For arguments sake I swapped my previously modded laser to a new mechanism and this fixed all my woes?! Seems that the problem was not my soldering but something on the mechanism board itself - possibly one or more of the pins at the connector has got cracked as a result of many plugging/unplugging instances? Will have a closer look at some point. But for now happy to be back with the full monty of laser mods.

Default Original 47Lab Shigaraki transport issues... Tvicol....

Happy Holidays to everyone. I have a Shigaraki transport since around 2005 or so.... In the past few years I have had to change the cd mechanism at least once a year. Said machinism is the 15 pin model and it looks exactly the same as the original. I thought these mechanisms I order thru EBay, which cost around $25 were by Sanyo, but from what I've read here they might not be... Anyway they don't seem to last more than a year. The latest one, bought 6 or 7 months ago seems to be misbeheaving. Lately, it seems, that if I have the unit ON for many hours it starts to play cd's like in a FF mode and makes a clac, clac noise repeatedly. I turn it off install my Oppo 93 as a transport and so it goes. Later on I can reinstall the Shigaraki, plays well for 2 days or so, and there it goes again. So what could be going on here? I know it has a lot of years of service and appreciate that the cd mechanism, albeit, apparently not the best one, is still obtainable. And what would the difference between the 15 and 16 pin mechanism be, in the quality sense, though I realize I cannot use it. Thanks!

Instead swapping CD mechanics I suggest you to look at ribbon cable connectors. These get oxidated and cause such problems.

Default JVC RC-EZ51 Shigaclone

Had the guts out of the original boombox Shigaclone sitting around as they were redundant once I got Tibi's Shiga Black. Over the last 3 weeks I've had a lot of fun making this for my brother as a 50th birthday gift.

Very happy with how it turned out and this morning just solved the issue that I was having with CDs skipping. Just waiting for the NC tactile switch so I can wire in the TOC button - otherwise it is complete!

Except for the aluminium plate which was guillotine cut to order, the drilling and machining is all hand tools. At $2 each the 400g plumb bob feet are a great find and I am going back to the hardware store to buy out their full stock! (there is a smaller size that will look great attached to speaker boxes).
