once I drilled a small hole and used a triangular "file" (not sure about the term in english) to make the optical square fit. It takes much patience.
Used a back panel from a next. gen player as a template. once again it takes patience cutting it this way.

On my cld-d515 I cut the backpanel around the location where the optical is positioned now and put in that partical piece of backpanel coming from a cld-d925 along with the components from the 925. I used the disc grinder with a 1 mm disc to allow for accurate positioning. besides a narrow cut it looks great.

It's all gone meanwhile.
Sold the last player along with the 5 tapes.

Another format I parted with after hddvd.

No regrets, Happy to have owned it, enjoyed it.

Sold most of the stuff to serious collectors so it's all in the right hands.
Half a year it took me finding the right buyer(s)
It's all so nice but in the end one can't focus on so many different formats IMHO.
Since I have little to no knowledge about vcr's in general and the actual tapes remain a tape wear related system I decided to pass it on.
I'm sure some fellows out there figure out a way to keep all those gorgeous machines running for years to come.

I suspect some CU-CLD remotes share the same electronics inside...?
Interesting. I haven't thought about this. I have disassembled many backlit remotes (usually to properly stop corrosion), but I haven't paid attention to the components. Looking back at photos of a CU-CLD121 and CU-CLD098 that I happened to take, the boards are marked ALPS which I believe is

I don't like disassembling these if I don't have to, but the next time I do I'll document all the components.

so I compared the internal print boards

CU-CLD117 (cld99)

CU-CLD108 (HF-9G)

both share the same basic board ALPS BCR970104A with following differences:

CU-CLD117 has yellow leds installed

CU-CLD108 has red leds installed

Both remotes feature the CH mode and Graphics button but it is not on the outer body of the cu-cld117 since the cld-99 didn't come with the LD-G option.
Both of these have NO JOG and Shuttle led installed and it isn't even there on the outher body.
Many other remotes do have this led installed on the more common players.

Another remote I happen to own is the CU-CLD109 that also includes all buttons with the same print (ALPS BCR907104A) inside yet they did not fit the leds or the actual push button on the print! This remote has a red jog and shuttle led left fitted next to the actual dial like many others btw.
This remote has the outer body of a standard type remote lacking the side button to push illumination. like many remotes out there it has the ribbons on each side molded in plastic but nothing functional about that.

I think this info might be interesting to repair or use donor parts with players that didn't come with the right or no remote!
You might be able to build yourself a functional remote from a japanese player or US model player that need the V-dnr thing or LD-G option. it works both ways with these.

Beware the remotes for the cld-703 & 704 have a v-dnr option but the layout is different and there is no select option!

hope this helps someone out there

CU-CLD098 shows BCR970102B.

Can you read what is on the two ICs? In all my photos, it is too blurry to make it out.

on the HF9 remote CU-CLD108

one reads,

Nec Japan
D6600 712

the other,

Nec Japan
D6125A 201

On the CU-CLD109

one reads,

D6600 712

the other,

D6125A 192

Talk to the seller first. Who knows it won’t be a problem returning it. Might not be economical to return it ... what title is it to begin with?
A known rotter?

easy enough on a cld-d515. connect the trace after r895. put the cap behind the actual toslink once fitted. cutting the hole can be challenging.... I simply robbed a piece of back panel from a donor player....

the black prc hub on the spindle might be broken!

take the bonnet off and check the spindle motor. there is a black three legged plastic on top of the motor to center the disc. this holds down a spring... if one leg breaks....

the Power supply from a cld-d925 should fit this player. schould be easy enough just swapping it out!

take some pics of the power supply to be sure! I have fitted cld-d2950 PS into my cld-hf9g and cld-99 elite player. All recapped btw!

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you all know that my brother and I managed to successfully mod the player. Works like a charm!

Many thanks, once again, to all those that helped make this happen. :)

I have succesfully installed the boards from ebay. I ussually remove the optical output.

This photo is a cld-d515 with a part cut of the backpanel coming from a donor player I did years ago.
I only soldered in the missing components on the original main board

Still thinking this is something mechanical. Wobbly back panel or bent crossbars, clamper etc.

Next time it gets caught up searching, try applying gentle pressure to those parts and see if it makes it better or worse.

changed the top clamp today and succes!
I opened up the top clamp. there is a washer sitting in between and this turned out to be worn.
the white plastic round washer looks like it has been worn in the middle by the years of spinning. the ball bearing is to blame for that after all these years!
I took plyers to take it of and found it is simply held by glue and a sort of rubber cushion in between the metal bracket and plastic washer.
no more doubts when spinning up now!

I have some scrap cld-2950's around that use the identical loading assy etc.
I knew they would come up handy one day.

Thank you for the advice on this. mechanics can be challenging small things that make you think....
