Hi fellow enthusiasts!

Ive got an X9 that hangs on the side change. The machine has definitley been dropped as it arrived broken in the post some years ago. Other than a broken tray it has served me well. Lately, its started hanging when it changes sides from A to B. It happened gradually a few times. Now its gotten to a point where it doesnt turn at all. The side change animation shows on the front display and you can hear the laser moving but it just hangs.

Has this happened to anyone before? What could be a possible cause or fix? It could be that the mechanism needs cleaning lubing etc. I havent taken it apart to inspect yet. I was just hoping to get some advice before I proceeded with a repair.

Ive been using it as a single sided player just fine, pretending its an X0 ;)

Cheers! :thumbup:

The grip ring goes bad in these too!!

Try pressing side B to close the tray and if it goes to side B and then starts playing the grip ring is probably bad. It will have issues going from B to A in this scenario.

Thanks for the reply Kurtis!

You think this could be as simple as the grip ring? I sure hope so! Donberg has them in stock as well! When I've got a spare minute I'll do exactly what you said and report back.

Thanks again!
