Japan neo geo cd console
Hi all, just purchased a neo geo Jpn cd console, and I get the attached screen? I do not know what I'm doing and can not play a cd game? Any advise welcome?
boboalfie123 attached the following image:
For whatever reason, it's not registering the disc. Have you tried different NGCD discs to rule out it being a bad disc?

Does it spin up? If so, that's a good start if the disc at least starts to spin.

First thing you can do is take a q-tip with just a TINY amount of alcohol on it (use the 91% stuff, not the 70%) and with it barely moist, gently, and I mean very gently, rub the lens eye with it and try again.

If that doesn't work, you may need to adjust the pots on the cd reader. This requires some surgery. The pots determine how "strong" the laser is. Over time, these get weak and are not enough to read the disc. You can boost this by adjusting said pots.

I don't have a unit here to take pictures for you, but if you take it apart enough to see the laser, you will see some plastic looking screws on the laser (You'll know when you see them). Use a small screw driver and turn them clockwise in 1/8 turn increments and try again. If you need help beyond this, you can send it to me and I can try to fix it for you.
