Again, I love how this fantasy is going on when most collectors won't spend more than 5 bucks on an LD and even more just
have these expensive titles in their wishlist and will never really buy it.

Then how can you expect anybody to spend one thousand dollars on a player when you never did when they were new.

Hell, they can't even spend 300.00 on a nice 97 now, and you think they will spend 1000+ on new players??????????

That looks perfect for a few low power Japanese devices in the UK:

If you intend to get more Japanese devices, you might want a slightly bigger one with a multi-socket strip.

A friend gave me a CLD D925 a few months back it had some crosstalk issues. I tried to fiddle with it making it worse it has since been sitting in a corner. Now i've acquired the Pioneer Reference Disc, A service remote is on the way. A friend has an oscilloscope.

The manual refers to a Sony YEDS-7 test CD is it necessary? it seems like its a bit tricky to hunt down. Will any cd work?

Crosstalk is generally tilt I believe, should be able to do it with trial and error and no scope.

After doing some research, it appears you are correct that the belt is the VEB-1184 for the CLD-950. I thought it could have been different since this model is a single side player.

Appears one can get one at this place....

I would like a way to browse titles just like in the Global shop but have a filter to just see titles available in European shops.
Also an option to browse all shops in North America and being able to filter out the US or Canada

Luckily, that was only a few lines of code:

https://www.lddb.com/shops.php?global=ALL => all shops
https://www.lddb.com/shops.php?global=EUR => Europe
https://www.lddb.com/shops.php?global=NOA => Canada + USA
https://www.lddb.com/shops.php?global=USA => USA only
https://www.lddb.com/shops.php?global=CAN => Canada only

I'm happy to announce that I've begun manufacture of new VEB1237 equivalent grip rings. Search on ebay and you will find them, or find me over at Laserdisc Forever on facebook.

I'm using custom press dies that I fabricated myself. I'm working on DEB1169 and VEB1008 now. I realize pacparts still has DEB1169, but who knows for how much longer, and who knows how long the rubber on the old stock parts will stay grippy.

Thanks fireproof710,

Efforts like this are realistically the only way we're all going to keep our players running well into the future.

Now what we need is for some folks with the appropriate electronic engineering knowledge to work out how to replace the laser diodes in pickups. NOS laser pickups are mostly unavailable or stupidly expensive - rebuilding them is most likely going to become the only option.

So it took over a year and four players purchased but I finally have a perfectly working HIL-C1. Lucky #4 unexpectedly came in mint condition with a pretty professional looking AC-3 mod and factory remote.

My buddy Bill Deleo who gets all the credit for repairing this one has successfully built a Sony calibration jig so we can now scope calibrate both HIL-C1 and HIL-C2EX.

What we have figured out is that there may be a trick to swapping the laser assembly out, there is an angle that appears to be factory set that *might* have something to do with the issue. We have verified that the other players I have work by swapping in the laser from lucky #4 (first one to come that had a non dead laser). I have (2) NOS lasers that we have not been able to get working so they were either DOA or there is a trick to swapping them out. I also have (2) more NOS that will be tested soon.

The quality of the image coming from this player is second (and its a very arguable second) only to HLD-X0, no other Pioneer player can come close to this Sony.
