I bought a Pioneer LD-V8000 LaserDisc player for X-Mas and paid around $65 total for it. I kind of regret it after doing some more research and learning I could have gotten one with better picture quality, but too late now. Anyways everything works fine except the audio, it keeps "cracking up and dropping out" at least 15 to 20 minutes into a film or doesn't play at all. Oddly enough my oldest LD which is Star Trek:The Motion Picture has the least amount of problems with its audio, but obviously suffers from minor "Laser Rot". Can anyone help me with this problem? I really want to enjoy my LaserDisc player to its fullest potential. Also does anybody know who I should contact about LaserDisc problems?
