MY SD/A 390T

Hi guys, my 390t is starting to skip once in a while, thinking it needs the laser cleaned but not quite sure how to do it, think thats the problem? or should I just send it out to rita for a tune up? let me know what you guys think, thanks, frenchguy :-)

I haven't torn mine apart but you could first try one of those insertion cd's that have fluid and the little brushes on them. Around $5.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

PURE alcohol (NOT rubbing alcohol!) & a cue tip will take care of it. about 6-7 screws will pop the top, then there's a screw in the center that holds the CD stabilizer on. Remove that & you'll have clear access to the lens.

Don't use alcohol... Very Bad for plastics.

the blue one cleans and polishes plastic... It also cleans anodized aluminum AMAZINGLY

Re: MY SD/A 390T

I used a Clear Plastic lens cleaner on my 390t and its Rock-in and Rollin...
I also took my Blower and used low but enough pressure to clean out the Dust - Look like New now \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
BillD, You will be forever with us! RIP until we meet again on the other side...
