My cd changer CDC-4 and Navigation unit are struggling to read discs

 

i refuse to spend money getting replacement units when really all they need are new optical lasers

 

i don’t suppose anyone would know what lasers are required for the following:

 

Becker BE-6648 navigation unit

Becker PA1490 / BE-6605 CDC-4 changer

 

Been searching all night with no luck 😞

 

thanks in advance

I don't know the loader type offhand, but if you want it replaced try Maple Audio in Bath, or Cartronics in Surrey.

Hi Richard problem being they want around £200 to basically replace a laser I can get for around £40 and do myself 

 

I know I’m being tight but that’s a huge difference in cost

I'll take a look when I get to my PC in the morning.  I might have some info.

 

Failing that, it might be worth taking a punt on something like this:

 

WWW.EBAY.CO.UK

Donor Vehicle: 2005 Porsche Boxster S. Vin# WP0CB29815U732083. Interior Color: Black. Exterior Color: Black.

 

I can't really see why it wouldn't work, but even if not you could strip it and swap the DVD mechanism.
