Really excellent thread tasuke, thank you for taking the time to showcase all of these CLD-3030 chassis-based Laserdisc players. :thumbup:


thank you, i'm kind of obsessed with the model series, actually. the 3030, specifically, was the first LDP i ever saw, -almost 20 years back-
that was, cosmetically, Love at First Sight.

there are, of course far superior models out there to be had, but damn if the 3030/99S series' cosmetics don't fairly scream "Late-1980's Home Video Revolution"
an all-too-short-lived cosmetic design ethos that speaks directly to my soul...

((the top model's A/V performance really ain't half-shabby at all, either, TBH.))

Won a $20 CLD-3030, complete with remote control, off of eBay. It was presumed by the seller that it needed repair. Tasuke has mentioned it many times, and I agree with him on the cosmetics of this 80's player.
Very nice condition with very little scratches on top of the facia panel, otherwise excellent.
I bought it with the intention of repairing it and I have gotten the two belts at Pacparts for future needs.
To my surprise, it works very good and it is very quiet in operation. The only thing I have stumbled upon by now is that the chapter search sometimes uses longer time, but nothing major. Had no problems watching two discs the other night.
At least, one more laserdisc player is saved from the unevitable death.

While I have never owned a 3030 if its anything like the 3070 then it will take a little time to chapter search.

Its an older player and not as fast lets say as a newer later made player.
Unless its taking a really long time.

It felt like it was struggling to lock on to specific chapters midways and did "hang" a while before I could go to a previous chapter.
Later on those specific chapters were easy for the laser to locate when there had been movement all along the guide rail from start to end. From what I know it could have been the results of a player that has been sitting in storage for years without use.

it pretty much is. it's beneficial to give the player a good fresh relube. pop the top, expel the disc tray, and you'll have direct access to the laser sled transverse assy.

you can use WHITE LITHIUM GREASE and a light general purpose oil, though if you have affordable access to it, a Silicon-based grease is considered best.

the brass worm-drive shaft, and the guide shafts are the primary things to lubricate. GREASE for the WORM, OIL for the GUIDES;

this alone should correct most, if not all playback faults. it would be best to remove the disc tray entirely, to grease the gearwork underneath,
but that is not essential, and the timing gear for the tray drive shaft must be aligned properly with the tray's teeth track to be properly reassembled...

The player works even better after a couple of uses. Trying to find a suitable spot for it, but it is quite heavy. One thing I dislike with the Pioneer players in general are the mechanical noises during operation, but this particular one is very quiet in comparison to the other player models in my collection. I guess the weight of the player also plays an important role and it seems that later models did get lesser weight and that may have contributed to generate more unwanted noise in general. I guess they had to unwillingly accept it if they should keep the weight as low as possible within thresholds.
The Panasonic LX-600 I have is much more quieter in operation and also not as heavy.

What are your noise level opinions about Pioneer vs. other brands? Are Pioneer in general more noisier than others?

There's somebody selling a CLD-99S right here in Finland. I'm seriously considering it. Unfortunately I'd have to buy a new voltage adaptor, new A/V cables (because my existing RCA leads are really susceptible to interference) and probably a remote as well.
