I remember when I was younger at comic and toys shows, the fools always thought that Lensman was a rip off of Star Wars :yawn:

If you expose yourself to stuff then you realize that the stuff you thought you liked was all rip offs of other stuff from many years before.

Look at the Cowboy Bebop with Ganymede, they've been writing scifi stories about that for years before bepop did it.

Aren't both main protagonists of Star Wars and Gundam blonde?
And I'm sure at one time they both have white shirts........
So another direct rip off :lol:

Yes, yes we know SONY baloney is the best.
Sounds like something with the flutter of the digital, wonder if its due to a weak laser or caps?

Yes, if you pause you will get a blue or black screen depending on your player.
If you still step it will freeze the image.
At least that's with my older players, Can't remember right now about what screen you would get with an R7G.

OK This is my last post under this topic.

How old are you vextrex? Its almost like you really never had LD and a 3030 back in the day and are just dragging us down this rabbit hole when you find
some type of quirk that nobody else wants to see or care about from your "new to me hobby"

Sounds like if its not what I mentioned above you are getting the jitter on the CAV discs when they are improperly pulled down from 3.2

I think there really needs to be some type of book to explain or refresh people on this stuff before they start posting and then get
all others riled up to get a 3 page topic of nonsense trying to figure out your "issue" when we are fooled into thinking you know what you are
talking about since you grew up with a "303" player.

Good luck and enjoy collecting LDs.

I need to get a demodulator big time.

If you have a bunch of AC3 discs you really need one, they sound great but then again so did DTS, one issue is that since LD is
older you really need to know how to hook it up and select stuff as there is no automatic stuff like DVDs have.

I think only issue is wrong sides? like Left rather than Right or front rather than rear.
I don't think you can actually mess anything up other than your brain trying to figure it out :lol:

?? You get protection if you pay for it.
You can always add insurance from the post office for any service for an extra cost.

I don't want to 'pay for insurance'. I want my discs to be snug and handled properly.

Media mail is just a white box, thin as chips. Nearly impossible to find 6+ discs and padding; I'm surprised i haven't gotten any cracked discs with how
the post treats them.

What are you really talking about.
Media mail is a service.

Insurance is a service.

If you buy something from you are paying for the extra service like shipping or insurance.
This is how it works.

Amazon free shipping is a different story.

About 1 1/2 minutes in she puts an LD into an LD player

Is this with all discs???
I know that I have this issue with all players when trying hard to read discs like Discovision.
So is it possible that its a bad disc?

Also could it be the laser going?

I don't normally offer payment for this is a voluntary situation.

WOW so Criterion, Eureka and 88 Films sound like a bunch of cheap fu--s.
I'm not doing work for you or them for free.

They only pay the film companies and then don't get all the material they need and then make fans like us to do the work
for free. :thumbdown:

Does anybody seriously think that Criterion is making a lot of money with some of its releases ?


If they weren't making money they wouldn't be releasing films.
Its a business and they are making more money than you and me combined.

If you think differently then you are lying to yourself.

Oh man, if I had it you would be buying it for 400.
I've seen some copies on ebay. Your other option is Yahoo Japan.

Don't start tweeking your player to think you can play a rotted disc better, you may be killing your laser so you can play your 2 dollar movie.

There are no parts left and we can't be tweeking these lasers past their factory specs so you can play ALIEN.
Its not like you are trying to watch some important film that is only available on LD and there are no masters around to make a 4K scan.

I personally would avoid the DVL’s because it doesn’t make sense to me to have what constitutes an “average” LaserDisc and DVD player in one.

I know others will disagree but I highly doubt that Pioneer bothered to put a crap LD player into this new DVD format
to make a combi player.

They would have tried to keep prices down but put as good of a player as possible as they didn't think they
were going to end LDs for some time after and the first run of DVDs were really not very good.

I remember getting one of those laser newsletters back in the day with reviews of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert.
The LD was given a better review than the DVD as they were both released at the same time.

Wow I think I need to do a video of what is collectible and what people should be buying.


If you want a rare set then you need to pickup the Astroboy box set I have for sale in my shop, its harder to find that many other LD titles
and the series hasn't been released on DVD or Bluray as of yet in Japanese language or complete as the LD is.

I’ve been interested in that same set you’ve had for sale for YEARS. If it’s so worth what you are asking then why won’t anyone buy it?

Also, the set is, IIRC, no longer considered “complete” if for no other reason than at least one episode exists only in the NBC version. The Snow Lion, I think it’s called. They put it on the back side of the US ver of Legend of the Forest. It’s still one of the greatest LD sets ever made.
Yeah, its missing 4 or 5 episodes? They are around in English but I don't know if they were changed other than language.
I found out which are missing, but they are missing from all time not just forgotten from that set.

Easy to answer why nobody is buying it, it was released in 1990 just 9 years too early for the collectard fools. :yawn:

Now if I had bought boxes of 6th day rather than this boring old set I would have been able to make more than a few grand :wtf:
BTW I was grocery shopping last week and saw 6th day for sale, but it was only the DVD and it was 5 bucks :yawn:

I would brush, I've never used the stuff.
There is someone on ebay selling new cut rings but I've never tried them.
Remove clean and then try your new option.
Good luck.

While I use google all the time, I do hope new people will start using them when asking about which belt or remote goes with which players.

Lots of these discs have been sitting in shops for years, is it possible to post a date of when it was added
so others can see how long something has been sitting in a shop for pennies or thousands of dollars.

Unless this is there already and you could explain on how to see that.

Would love to see how long some of these higher priced discs have been sitting in shops publicly, even mine.
Thanks,

You aren't going to get rid of the smell 100% unless you can clean the player 100%.

Best options are to get some type of cleaner solution and wipe down the entire outside of player and take the top off and wipe the
inside of the metal casing.

Then you have the chip board and parts, I would try to wipe down as much as possible and hope for the best.
Unless you decide to make some type of box to fit the player in with baking soda and let it sit inside said box OR
wash all the inside somehow you won't get rid of the smell 100% but it will mostly be gone.
