My question is has anyone taken this player apart and if anyone would like to chime in on this. I wanted to take the front panel off but the door needs to come off to get the front seperated. Also does anyone have some advise on once I get this assembly removed how to place the lens back in and what glue adhesive to use? And I would guess a calibration is needed afterwords ?

    i have ran in to that 4 times (only happens on pioneers it seems). i just put a tiny drop of superglue :) on the side of the lens and put it back carefully. works every time:) make shure you dont get any glue ontop of the lens

    as for the front/drawer issue. i dunno i havnt worked on that exact model.

    I downloaded the pd 65 service manual and it shows and instructs how to disassemble. Not sure how different the 75 is from the 65.
    you didn't have any issues after putting the lens in? No adjustments required? Does it kind of snap into position or can it be tilted if your not careful or have a steady hand.

    no issues afte the fix.and no adjustments required

    it just sticks in a hole, the lens has kind of a flange around it, just press down untill the flange makes contact with the housing.

    be carefull though, NO glue ontop of the lens or at the bottom. the machine must be able to see through it :)
    and dont press like crazy! since the lens housing assy is mounted with some sort of coils for the focusing. pretty delicate stuff.

    but unless your Wreck-it Ralph i think you´ll get it playing again soon!

    Well haven't attempted the repair other than taking a dental mirror to go into the transport to indeed confirm the lens is gone. It is and I have it. The issue is I'm not sure how to get the transport apart? Any leads on instructions links etc would be great.
