And apologies, sincere apologies, I’m not assuming you won’t know this but I’d kick myself if I didn’t at least mention this and it just got overlooked with all the distractions we deal with - please don’t leave the puck on the tray if you are shipping the machine. It’s years since I moved mine but I think it has a space in the packing foam.
Really sorry if teaching grandmother to suck eggs etc.
No, it’s good advice. I ‘lost’ a puck inside my CD player once, when I moved from London to Brighton. I managed to get it out again, after a bit of ‘shoogling’ the player, but it was a schoolboy error not to remove the puck in the first place.
I bought a secondhand CD3 that was “broken” - in fact all that had happened was that the platter had dropped on the CDM9 spindle (a common fault with the CDM9) and once snapped back into place it has been rock solid for many years since. I did wonder though about the rattling going on inside, so I opened up the lid and lo and behold a bunch of clamps dropped out!
Great point. The transport pad has sticker on it and it states that the packing pad must be in place and remove disc clamp before transportation. I removed mine when I placed the pad earlier today and put into another plastic bag so not too lose it.
Sadly the old FAQ in the old forum archive tends to get a bit forgotten these days. I did manage to save the old image though (of what I suspect is your hand), as all the old images were stripped from the old posts.
