I have a Pioneer CLD-D515 NTSC/PAL LD player. Im asking around about why my LD player randomly skips/hiccup when playing any kind of LD movie? Its like someones using fast forward a few seconds. No scratches or dirt on the discs.

Also sometimes when I put in an LD movie the player makes a sound a few seconds and the disc comes out. Ive opened to see why this is happening and looks like the mount/holder/laser unit cant move the disc up correctly. Works when I
"help" it up. Then randomly the hiccups starts.

Can I get repair parts? Is it hard to change them myself?

Check if the M-Holder is broken and if so replace it and the belt. The parts are available.

Hello again!

Ive just picked up a new belt for my LD player. First my thought was it wont work with only a small rubber for this.

After I changed it and turned on the player that strange sound is gone. I can see the sled/holder picks up the disc
and starts to play it. Works like it was when I bought it many years ago! It even switch from side A to B without
any issue!

Im so supprised it only took one little rubber belt to get it going like its brand new.

So happy :D
