    Hello,

    I'm trying to repair a Sony Midi Hi-Fi which isn't reading CDs properly. I have already tried a lens cleaner.

    I have removed the entire CD assembly and found that the laser pickup is a KSS-240A. Can any of the three potentiometers on the pickup be adjusted/recalibrated?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried loading a cd and seeing if the motor speed up or just twitches??

    Occasionally it will attempt to play a track but then skip continuously.
