So I just got an X9 shipped from Japan, arrived with the laser moving forward and banging into spindle with the front display blinking on and off.

Upon opening I found a piece of plastic broken off of the limit switch on the laser, I assume that is the issue? The laser keeps moving forward and never hits the limit? Would this also explain the front display blinking on and off?

Can I just swap the switch from another player or can I buy off the shelf somewhere? I have this 99 one but that mechanism is sitting here because it was giving me similar issues so not sure if I can test that switch??

The switches are the same, you can try it.

I did and now it's doing this? Could the replacement switch be bad also or is there another issue? The front display continues to blink on and off as this is happening.

Edit - if I hit the switch with a screwdriver the laser backs up so it must be working? I removed the tray and played around with the gears, do I need to set the gear timing or something?

So this cable was unplugged now it's playing fine but needs a new tray. Also it isn't responding to remote control what could that be?

how did you receive this player from japan?
did seller doppel box the X9 properly also using proper protective materials?

maybe the best way to pack a player for safe transport is to use a tall outer box with cut out side grab handles.
wheel shops selling sporty rims have these boxes recycled after they install rims to cars in tire shops.

pack player with shock absorbing material inside the 1st box, then fill outer delivery box with more shock absorbing material, then place internal box with player floating ontop of the packing materials acting like a shock absorber.
wedge internal box around on all corners making it sit tight.
on outer box there should be adhesive labels for safe transportation: FRAGILE - HANDLE WITH CARE - DO NOT DROP

the best way is to ship a heavy player in safe box placed on a custom sized wooden pallat.
shipping will be costly.

Was packed fine and would not have been an issue if handled properly.

Anyway it's working now just need to figure out why not responding to remote?

If one cable was disconnected, another may be also. Check the connections between the front panel (where the remote sensor is) & the other parts of the player.
It's possible that the photosensor has gone bad, but very unlikely (it would be an easy fix). Also possible that the bias voltage may be dead, but would be unlikely. Also check the inside of the remote sensor window.

Don't worry about the broke piece unless you want the unit fully stock. The only affect is the tray could sag a little but the mechanism pick the LD up so it not an issue. The S2/X9 tray is more brittle than the tray used in the CLD-99/79/D704/D703 and at some point the channel on the bottom that guides the plate to signal the processor the tray position will break and then the tray will be stuck in the unit. The S2/X9 tray is no longer available either. It is really best to get one of the black colored trays which the channel is not as brittle but it has to be modified by breaking out the 3" disc surface, then you put your X9 front on the tray so it still looks like an X9 with the tray closed.

BTW: the tab at the back breaks off on the black colored trays too.

You can Email me about this if you want.

Thanks Kurtis, the x9 tray actually lost some teeth also but I have a local buddy with a spare 503 I'm picking up tomorrow. Believe it or not X9 is all fixed, remote still doesn't work but I have it daisy chained to another player using the rear control points as a workaround. Best part is I did it myself without having to drive across the country :).

Damn, they managed to mess it up pretty good. Lucky it's mostly been fixable.

The only issue I had with the X9 that I recently picked up was discs slipping in the clamp. Replaced the turntable mat and all is good.

On the issue with the switch... Was it the plastic piece that actuates the switch, or the switch itself?

Excellent. Thanks for the video. The DVL-919 has the same kinds of limit switches, but they are stationary and the pickup engages them as it travels.
