Sharp MV-D2000 Laserdisc malfunction

    I have a Sharp MV-D2000 player that I hadn't used in some time, although it has been
    connected to power. When I tried to use it just recently, it loaded the disc normally, spun up,
    made the little seeking noises, spun down, and then ejected the disc. :( (I did try a number
    of discs.) On just one occasion, just after power on, it did start to play, but the picture was
    torn up badly.

    I removed the cover and watched it power up and then loaded a disc. The carriage seems
    to be moving ok, the disc spins up and then attempts to adjust speed, and the laser lens
    advances and retracts (up/down). I dusted the lenses off with a soft brush, although they did not
    appear to be dirty. No change in symptoms.

    It will play audio CDs. I cleaned the spindle and the slipping "squeak" at startup, which
    it had always had, went away. But the same symptoms persist. :(

    And ideas/suggestions?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

  2. Check the disk. It might be cracked. (Yes, it's possible for one side to be
    cracked and the other side okay.)

    I did try several discs, no change in symptoms. :(

    No smoking here, but I will give that a go (not smoking, cleaning the optics ;) )
    before trying the email.

    Thanks for the suggestions. :)

    I got busy with other stuff and had to put this on the back burner for a while.
    Your fix worked. :) I tried three disks and five sides, and they all play! :)

    Thanks!
