CD Test Points & Adjustments

Test Points

All connections at TP501 on CDROM PCB

  • 1 RF
  • 2 FE (Focus Error)
  • 3 FEIN (Focus Error IN)
  • 4 TE (Tracking Error)
  • 5 TEIN (Tracking Error IN)
  • 6 TEST
  • 7 GND
  • 8 VC
  • 9 GND via lid switch with pull-up resistor to VCC. Should read 0v when closed, 5v when open.


Adjustments

  • R508 Focus Bias
  • R510 E/F Balance
  • R522 Focus Gain
  • R524 Tracking Gain

CD Adjustment Procedures

From the Service Manual

Before the adjustment The initial screen ( that is a comment "Put a disc on the turntable" ) is displayed when the power supply is turned on without a disc.

The screen shifts to the control screen after reading a disc if a disc is set and the door close detection switch is pressed. The disc keeps rotating for approximately 1 minute after shifting to the control screen. Press the playback and then the stop button if you want to stop the rotation. With a disc on the turntable, the screen shifts to the control screen quickly after reading a TOC when the power supply is turned on. (The initial screen is displayed while TOC is being read.)

Adjustment measure Oscilloscope, Test disc (CRG-1117)

FE (focus error) bias (CD stop mode)

  1. Connect an oscilloscope between TP501 pin 2 (FE) and TP501 pin 9 (GND).
  2. Adjust R508 so that the DC voltage of the focus error signal becomes 0v, +/-10mV. (note this correction -vs- the service manual)

E/F balance

  1. Connect TP501 pin 6 (TEST) with TP501 pin 7 (GND).
  2. Connect a oscilloscope between TP501 pin 4 (TE) and TP501 pin 8 (VC) and play the test disc.
  3. Adjust R510 so that the center voltage of the waveform becomes 0±0.05V.

Focus/Tracking Gain Symptoms

If the gain is out of adjustment, the symptoms below will appear.

Gain too low
Focus gain: Focus is not obtained and disc does not rotate.
Tracking gain: Mechanical shock occurs easily and sound is interrupted. Or time counter display stops counting.
Gain too high
Focus gain: Scratches (on the disc) easily interrupt play, and noise is increased during play.
Tracking gain: Since the follow-up ability of the pickup is too high, the pickup may oscillate and oscillating sound may output. (Roughly translated - the laser eye will sing/squeal/ring)

As described above, the focus and tracking gain adjustment are performed to satisfy mutually contradictory characteristics.

A simplified adjustment procedure is described below. However, since exact adjustment can not be performed prior to adjustments, note (or mark) the positions of the semi-fixed resistors.

If the positions after the adjustment are only different, return the VRs to their original position.

(Translation: Measure the resistance of each adjustment before tweaking them)

Focus/Tracking Gain Adjustments

Focus gain adjustment
  1. Connect an oscilloscope to TP501 pin 2 (FE) and TP501 pin 8 (VC).
  2. Load the test disc and press the PLAY button.
  3. Adjust R522 (F.GAIN ADJ.) so that the correct waveform as shown in figure 1 is obtain.

Tracking gain adjustment
  1. Connect an oscilloscope to TP501 pin 4 (TE) and TP501 pin 8 (VC).
  2. Load the test disc and press the PLAY button.
  3. Adjust R524 (T.GAIN ADJ.) so that the correct waveform as shown in figure 2 is obtain.
