I have the same problem as Peter. My cdc645 skips randomly

Customer Question

I have the same problem as Peter. My cdc645 skips randomly and i think i'd like to try cleaning the lens. I've taken of the cover, where is the lens exactly?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Video Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I see the slide tray and the mechanism that plays the discs. Will I have to take off the top of that mechanism to find the lens?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Video Technician should know?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Video Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
