I have just got hold of a Pioneer PD-9300 CD player, it's very impressive in all but it's sound quality because of (I strongly suspect) a failing pick up assembly.
It will read some discs and not others. I have cleaned the lens, but no effect.
There is a possibility that the tracking could be out though.

The pick up is PWY1006 and I would like to know where I could get one, or possibly an alternative. It would be a great shame to have to relegate this player to storage container B1N!:(

The PD-9300 is back from the repair shop. The prognosis?
Laser alignment required, although I believe there are other issues unnoticed by the technician. :x

Why is it almost impossible to find anyone in the UK service industry with even the slightest bit of enthusiasm and professionalism?

Lots of noise from the right channel - Unnoticed.
Spindle motor seems a bit noisy - Unnoticed.

When I asked if they had any service info for this player they confirmed that they had all the manuals, but when I collected it, the excuse for the delay in repairs was a lack of service info. :?

All that aside, it now works relatively well, with just a spindle motor to replace and find the source of the distortion/crackling in the right channel. :headphones:

That problem is certainly not limited to the UK. :soapbox:
