Recently acquired a Denon LA-2100 at a yard sale, remote included, but I can't seem to get the thing to work. The laser seems to be working since I can see it under a camera.

My only guess is that it needs to be reprogrammed, does anyone have any clue how to do this? If not is there any sort of universal remote that would work with this specific player?

So does the player by itself play a disc or are you just saying the remote does not work? Wasn’t sure based on your question.

In any case, this Denon player is a Pioneer clone so if you need to load pre-programmed IR codes into your universal remote you simply put in the Pioneer codes.



Update>>>

Just viewed your other posting regarding Song of the South. Your picture of the player and discs shows that you have a Denon remote control for a DVD player so that is why it’s not working.

If you're looking for an equivalent remote to control your Denon machine, the Pioneer, CU-CLD069 remote pictured below will be an exact match for it.

That explains so much, thank you haha. Yeah that's the remote that they gave me with it, oh well. I'm not seeing the remote you suggested on ebay anywhere but I did find one on remotes.com for ~$50 which is more than I paid for the player haha, does almost any pioneer laserdisc remote work so long as I program it?

Do you have any personal recommendations for a replacement remote?

You can use just about any remote control from Pioneer so long as it's specifically made for a LaserDisc player (don't get a Pioneer remote for a DVD player as the codes are different). You can search ebay for deals all the time.

In addition, there is nothing to program on these remotes as they are already designed to work with your player. All the Denon units made by Pioneer stuck w/ the Pioneer codes.

Lastly, there is a chance you can program a universal remote to control your player if the one you own still has older codes or if you have something like a Logitec that have huge databases of IR codes that you can download.

Cheers, I went with the CU-V141 looked pretty slick, still had the knobby bit, and it was only $15, way way cheaper than the one meant for the player.

That will work fine for most of the functions you want to control. The only minor drawback is that this remote lacks the “Side A” and “Side B” buttons for auto reverse but you can still access them from the player’s front panel.

Yeah my auto reverse doesn't work anyways, I have to get up and flip.

Still working on that issue, I need a few hours after work to take the thing apart to see what's causing the issue.

Most likely need a new loading belt to fix your issue.

See my post below that shows how to replace the belt.

Does it get much better than a CLD-D702?


You’ll need to order a Pioneer belt under reference number PEB-1013. Here is one available on eBay.

It's official, I now have a nice working remote, and the new belt fixed the side flipping issue!

You're the true Lord of the Laserdiscs, thanks for saving another machine!
