pioneer 717


Novice Member
Hi all, I have had this PIONEER 717 DVD PLAYER for some time now and it is giving me hassle trying to play CDs or VCDs. It usually just spits them out but very occasionally plays them. It is multi region and plays DVDs fine. Is it a faulty laser pick up or does it just need a clean?

thanks, FRANC


If you haven't tried it yet I would give the laser a clean and if that doesn't work then it looks like it is the laser.
My 717 is nearly three years old now and (touch wood) I haven't had any problems so far.
The problem you have I've heard is usually caused by a dirty laser, but you never can tell.
