well, managed to grab "Take Five II" out of it by taking it apart.

otherwise, a waste of $5 hah.

I dont think i feel like trying to locate the failing cap on this. anyone need parts out of this lesser model?

looks like all laserdiscs are gone off of local craigslist now. even the players. the market gone? gotta hoard any player i can find now.

Oops that's a pioneer part number.

Yes a little white square sticker on the back of the laser assembly.

Should read KHS-130A

bad news... sticker says KHS-150A

and wow thats a difficult label to find, its under the data cable, so to read it you have to stick a mirror under the data cable and a flashlight .... not easy.

Oh man so close yet so far! I even checked for compatibility and no go. Hey listen I appreciate you checking for me!

Are any of the caps noticeably bulging? Maybe a few caps would not be that bad of a job?

it looks like the board has already had repairs done to it. theres a lot of flux and a few diodes that were spliced in here and there.

i have no idea if thats the problem, or problem with caps. i'm not really a circuit guy.

i didnt see any bulging caps though. but its difficult to see the psu under the main board as well.

the transformer on the psu looks kinda like its leaking something. do transformers fail ?

i went to pick this off my table and move it, only to hear something rattling around.
great. took it apart again... hoping to find mystery, only to find plastic case broken clip.
darn, not a capacitor or other part that would explain the power problem. just a waste of 5 minutes.

anyone in detroit metro want this for parts or repair free? maybe grasshopper ?

Have the same model myself, picked up for dirt cheap, advertised as not functioning.
I actually got it working again. I'm not quite sure what I did to make it work apart from wiggling the door and gently push/pull, simultaneously by ejecting the tray with the button. Worked great after that but leaving it overnight, the problem reappeared. I don't know if this is a common fault for this model, as I have read several topics related to the problem.

Sony tray and door mechs are the most common failure with them, just overly beautiful and complex compared to Pioneer units.

That sounds like varnish, not leaking. Transformers do fail, but it is usually caused by other issues. I would keep the player off and unplugged to avoid further damage.
