pioneer cd player PD-65
i am a total novice but hate to give up on my equipment. i have a pioneer pd-65 cd player that requires repair. A Pioneer repairperson said that I would require $300 worth of repairs and that it is not worth fixing.
The transport works fine, the digital display lights up when a disc is inserted and it spins but soon stops and doesn't seem to recognize or read the disc. I am assuming this is a common problem.
i opened the case and it is in pristine condition - I would like to attempt to repair this.
My question is - is this a repair that a novice can attempt? I have the manual and parts list and would like to know what to order. It appears that the entire transport unit is attached by 3 screws and can be easily removed.
or, should I buy another cd player of equal quality - suggestions.
i truly appreciate any response.
