Well guys, I hate to break the bad news, but by extremely technical I was hoping that I would get an answer from someone who worked with CD players and not someone who knew nothing beyond how to work it and how to think hypothetically and simplistically [as the lecture continues
...]. However, on a positive note (if anyone cares
) I did manage to find out that one of the lens mounts had broken and that was the only problem. I've just got to get inside it and glue it back on, hopefully.
I don't know, so this is my signature.
