Hi knowledgeable people. Really hope you can help.

I have a cambridge audio CD5 player that has been playing up for some time. It has trouble reading discs (TOC) and this was always helped by a jog or a kick. Problem has evolved and there are certain discs that it wont play despite reading TOC. It tries to play the tracks 1 by 1 but fails. Most discs it is just track 1 that it wont play. I decided that it must be the laser unit so ordered a replacement. First one that came had a clear lens but i the unit i had had a blue lens. Tracked one down with a blue lens and set about fitting it. With new laser unit the Player wont even spin the CD. Have tried the calibration pot but makes no difference. Am i missing something? Am i stupid to think that its an easy job? The Laser unit on the CD5 is a sony KSS-213C. Grateful for any help.

regards
Pete

thank you very much.... laser didnt come with any instruction and although i looked for any difference between old and new, didnt expect to have to unsolder a joint on the PCB. All now working fine. I am very grateful indeed.
Very Happy
