I really hope my replacement laserdisc player tray arrives soon. I’m really eager to get that thing fixed and working again.

For anyone who might need this info: the only other player which uses the HLD-X9’s tray is the LD-S9, which is also very expensive. But there are some other, easier-to-find players whose trays are compatible if you remove part of the CD tray punchout.


You can even unscrew the pretty front plate and put it on the front from the other model, so you get something that looks identical when it’s closed. It won’t look the same when open of course.
