Please send PM with suggestions to supply a properly fitted CDM. My previous experience of shipping entire 506 unit resulting in laser failure.

Today I replaced the latest CDM12.4 laser assembly with the previous one. I transferred the black hat cap and CD platter also. It is getting better. Still skips, but mush less.

While transferring the black hat cap CD platter, I discovered that it could have been pushed further onto the motor spindle. I also discovered I have uncentered the black hat cap, resulting in the CD disc slightly wobbling when spinning.

So I did not have the spacing from laser lens to CD disc surface correct. But I still have wobble, enough that tracking can jump one or two tracks. Adjustment of the CD clamp assembly is now non-critical.

Conclusion, I need to procure a new blackhat cap and CD platter.

I have replaced cap with a milled aluminum one. Performance is almost perfect.

Conclusions:
Error code meanings are not available due to Meridian restriction.
A cheap Chinese laser assembly replacement is not as good as original Phillips laser mechanism.
A rebuilt Phillips laser assembly is not readily available.

I just upgraded the 506 firmware with a replacement EPROM from Meridian Legacy.
Previous was 1.04.
Upgrade is 1.12.
The CD player now operates flawlessly. Upgrade eliminated occasional skipping.

I also purchased an EPROM with 1.12 firmware for my 508. Will replace EPROM soon.

Hi James,
That's sound like great news.
Could you share Meridian Legacy's contact details, I'm sure other HHker's would be interested in their services.

Regards,
Carl
