Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have posted, however I recently purchased a marantz cd5005 cd for $50 in silver which had a laser pick up issue, it wasn't reading any discs, but I purchased it mainly because if this player could be repaired, it would be one of the best bargains for me.
Note: I didn't take pictures of everything that I did, but hopefully you get what I did.
Dismantling the player was the player and disc mechanism was the easy part.
Getting the new laser mech ready for installation.
As per instructions of most Sanyo laser mechanisms that I know of, the two short circuit contact points outlined in the picture above, out of the box are generally soldered together, once the assembly was done I made sure that the 16 pin ribbon cable was connected first before desoldering the short circuit contact so that it looks like the picture above where you can see two contact points.
Then I just assembled everything back together ready for testing.
And it's all working well, I used headphones to test the sound and is all working well with no need for further adjustment on the little pot for the laser.
All put back together ready to play.
The main problem was that the original laser mech had laser had gone off which I later found out was due a shredded bit of the circuit on the side of the laser mech which tells me that the player had been opened up before. But now that the player is fixed, it will be in my system for many years to come.

I know there are many stories about LCD3 drivers giving up. Mine was purchased in Europe in 2014, started having trouble with the left driver intermittently and it finally gave up couple of months ago. I reached out Audeze service, they indicated that its out of service (which I knew already) and that it would cost a whopping 598 USD + shipping to US and back. I prefer my HD800 and have not used LCDs that much, funny that HD800s are still going strong barring a cable tear and headband change and LCDs died on me. Has anyone had similar issue? Anyone got any idea if this can be repaired locally?

Extra Info: Tascam recently released a new cassette deck. This is way better than a cassette deck. I used to have a Nakamichi Dragon, this is better than that. It records CDs at 16/44.1 bits. It can also record at 24bits 192hz but only on DVD+R.
I am told by Nik at Audiophile that this unit makes a great CD player, as good as CD players costing way more than it's RRP ($1500) at the time. I never used it as a CD player. I only used it to burn vinyl onto about 150 CDs. It has not had much use.
It was recently fully serviced and cleaned by Nik. This would be way better than an equivalent CD player at this price.
All my sales have a 7 day money back Guarantee, if returned in the condition I sold it.
Item: Tascam DV-RA1000 CD Player/Recorder
Item Condition: In good working condition, but the drawer needs cleaning because it has always stuck when empty. I have to keep a dummy CD in the drawer so it opens without sticking. If it sticks, you need to jiggle it to get the drawer to open. This flaw is reflected in the price.
Reason for selling: I only used this to make CD copies of vinyl. No longer required.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: All original packaging and manual included.

Its professional I/O includes balanced XLR connections, AES/EBU and SDIF-3, and it records standard CD-DA, WAVE and DSDIFF files to CD and DVD discs. The DV-RA1000 can also operate as a professional CD recorder, recording standard audio CDs for studio or meeting room installations.
The DV-RA1000 features digital recording formats from CD audio resolution all the way up to 192kHz/24-bit and DSD recording ? the formats used by DVD Audio and Super Audio CD. This rackmount stereo recorder features a user-friendly design on the front panel and professional connections on the back. Advanced features like a USB 2.0 connector, RS-232 serial control and multiband compression and EQ establish the DV-RA1000 as the new standard for studio mixdown recorders.
I've never used it to record in anything but 16 bit. That provided good enough sound for my requirements. It does good copies of vinyl.
