I have a couple of friends that have DVD players that seem to have mis-aligned lasers. You know symtom where one puts in a DVD and the player just keeps repeating that it is loading. It never actually does. Given the fact that taking these players to a repair shop would cost more than a new player they were both going to just throw these players out. Since they are basicly junk and also my recent sucsess at repairing my own player.(this one had a DVD jammed in the drive unit) I thought i'd take a shot at repairing these. Has anyone out there tackled this problem? Or know of some good links that could give me some good instruction? Is there a special tool that would need to be purchased? Thanks all for your help.
