Agreed!

These (Sony) lasers are very long lived usually.What symptoms do you have with the unit?

It should automatically drive the sled to the centre after the disc loads,so that the disc can be read.If that does’nt happen,it may be taking too long to load,which could be due to a loose/worn mechanism drive belt(common problem)Also the loading mechanism is probably slow due to dried out grease etc.The computer will block if the loading takes too long.It senses via microswitches attached to the mechanism.These become tarnished with age.

Great machines,worth persevering with.
