I just purchased a Pioneer CLD-97 from ebay, and ofcurse, with my luck, is not woking! it plays cds fine, but when I insert a laserdisc and hit play, I can see the LD spining, I can hear the laser moving up and down, but nothing, then the LD slows down a little, it speeds up a little, it slows down again... and no play. It gets recognize as an LD, but it looks like is not spining fast enought. CDs play fine. I clean the laser and tied cleaning the clamp, but it still does not play. I hope you can hlp me. thank you!

Hi. I'm having the exact same issue with the exact same model. Weird. If you hear something, can you let me know too. I'll do the same. Thanks.

I was told that there might be no servo lock up or what ever that mean. I own it up and cleaned the clamps very well thinking it was that, but it didn't work. Did you clean yours up yet? I sent it back and I purchased a McIntosh mld7020 in pristine condition with original boxes.
