Customer Question

We had a Pioneer laserdisc player CLD-D604 and were told the player cannot be fixed. Is there a model that is comparable (same features) as this one?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Pioneer is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I believe it said it was manufactured in 1999; the only information I have on the model is CLD-D604 laserdisc player used for karaoke. It played Japanese laserdiscs.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Well it was working and then when we tried to retrieve the disc the machine wouldn't open. Then, a message error code E3 displayed on the front panel.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: there a fee for this service? If so, I I'd like to know the cost before connecting

Here is one option for a similar model that does karaoke:
