TL-3300 CD player

Post by zad909 » Sat Jun 29, 2013 3:30 pm

Does anyone know the size of the 3 screws that are used to secure the CD player laser assembly during transport? Are they really necessary? Thank you. Peter

I'm hoping someone might have one and can estimate the dimension. Will it be safe to ship it without those screws? Thank you.

I have no idea what size the screws are but you probably should have them in place or they wouldn't be there.

I have an idea for you though...take the unit to a good harware store and they should be able to find a screw that will fit.

The only purpose of the screw is to hold the arm steady during transport so any screw that fits should work.

Sorry no one knew but I hope my advice helped.

I did go to hardware store 2x. I guess it is metric since unit is made in Japan. I bought 2 mm (dia) but was too small and 3 mm wass too big. Now I have to go 1 more time and hopefully 2.5 mm is the right one.
