Anyone know where to get these ? The Laserdisc Archive site doesn't anwswer emails for requests. Maybe they dont offer them anymore. Can anyone help ? I'm looking for the CLD-D505 & Mitsubishi M-V7057 (or CLD-D704 as its the same player) Thanks.

I contacted Pioneer directly (see their Web site) for a manual for my player and they sent it to me for $18.58.

Ralph, I have a 704 and a manual. If there is something you need that is not overly voluminous, I could scan several pages into Adobe and E-Mail them.

It takes a long time to get a manual emailed from the laserdisc archive site. It took about a month to get a reply when he sent me one for my Pioneer 504. I think he stays pretty busy.

I agree it'd be nice if Pioneer had the PDFs of the manuals so you could print them yourself... but charging for a manual of a ~10 years old product seems pretty reasonable. The player was already sold with the manual, after all...

The V-DNR is easy enough to use. Cycle through until you get to the variable one and use the jog shuttle (enable it by pressing the button to the side (it'll light up) to control the chroma (color) and luma (b/w) noise reduction until it looks best.

Other than that it has the specs in the manual, which you can lookup online anyway. There really isn't anything I would consider useful in the manuals.

I used to own both a 505 and 704 and could answer most any questions about them. I don't have the manuals, at this point -- I own a 97 now.

They have some recent products up there in pdf format but not all of them. That's why I had to order my manual for a model that's only been out of production for a year or so. They should get someone busy with a scanner!

If you use the composite, the V-NR is bypassed I believe. It only works on the svideo Out.
