I might have found the thread you are looking for....
Also, I need a service manual, because
on one of the cd changers, the right
channel does not work!
I think this was caused by using the
Monster Cable DEATH GRIP cables, and both the
left and right outputs on the back are lose!
Please let me know how I can fix both of
these problems without paying $300 per changer.
Just to say I have used Sony ES changers for many years. First was a CD89ES, Then 2 CD9ES now I still have the (slighly misfunctioning 9's) and a demo SCD333ES.
The problem I have had is never the laser, it's the flat cable from the laser sled to the rest of the electronics.
That cable is flexed every time the player changes CDs, and the connection fails intermittently (while in play) as the cable is flexed .
