Yes I have been in contact with ld service and Kurtis. Both have been extremely helpful and can supply a compatible drawer needed for repair. Hopefully the unit will be salvageable.

Thanks again everyone. Lots of knowledge on this forum.

I know this is an old thread but I found it when trying to find a solution for the very same problem. My HLD-X9 has had a small piece missing in the same section for some time, but a few days ago another piece broke loose and loading/unloading didn't work anymore. I fixed it by printing a small plastic part to replace the end of the rail. Works fine so far. The tray is made from ABS so I printed using ABS too, so no glue required: dissolving the two surfaces with acetone makes a great bond.

Great job, thx for the pics.
This is one of the few ways we will be keeping our LD players working for years to come.

Could you share the printer file?

Yes, I have seen this once before. If you can find the piece in the player take a soldering iron or other hot iron, place the piece in position and on the back side smear across the crack melting the plastic but the inside or front side needs to stay smooth. I've had this work

Otherwise the US Models CLD-D503/703/704/79/99 trays will work but they are black in color. I have extra's I could sell you but the shipping may be too expensive. Otherwise the Japanese S9 and I believe the CLD-D99 have the same color tray as yours. You have to swap the front of your tray onto the replacement. Even the Pioneer $80 new tray does not come with the front face.

The X9 tray is Pioneer part number VXA2311


At least the one from the CLD-D704 will NOT work as the insert for the CDs will block the disc holder from moving up. And you can't remove the insert as some of the gear tooth are on there.

The 704 tray does work. I just take pliers and break out the 3 inch disc ring and then it works fine.

Yes, if you are willing to modify it, that'll likely work.

Seems HF9G, HF7G, D770 and D570 also have the same tray.

None of those are easy to get in Europe though. Don't want to spent a fortune to replace some piece of plastic.
