- Mistracking or Disc Error readings. The Philips CDM-12.1 laser
mechanism tends to fail after several years. The solution is to install
a new one. MCM Electronics has them for about $26 -- P/N 32-18255, telephone

tray sometimes becomes loose causing unreliable opening and closing
of the tray. The replacement belt can also be purchased from MCM Electronics:
