one day on my Pioneer CLD-3080 and all of a sudden the video started
to become garbled. I could hear some grinding noise from inside the
player (that would not go away), so I opened it up to take a look.
Seems that the tilt servo motor will not stop rocking back and forth.
Whenever the player is on, the motor does this. The laser assembly
tracks fine, the gears are good, etc., etc. I isolated the issue by
taking out the laser carrier (the piece that holds the lens, laser,
tilt motor, etc.) and fully investigating it for any visible physical/
exhasted parts. Could this be a bad resistor, capacitor, ic board,
etc? I know the motor is fine, it's whatever is controlling the motor
or delivering power to it that's screwed up. I shouldn't have to make
adjustments to any pots because that would just adjust angle and tilt
pattern. Anyone have any ideas as to what I can check? I've googled
the heck out of this and can't find anything at all. I can't afford to
buy another player (a good one anyway). Your help is greatly
appreciated. Thank you.
