Hi all. Since the quarantine I've been fixing everything in my house - so far so good. Now I'm starting to pull old things out of boxes and see if I can keep them out of the landfill and maybe even provide someone else some use from them.
Cyberhome DVD Player Part Needed...
One of the things is a 15 year old Cyberhome DVD player that probably didn't cost $40 when new. But, once repaired, still capable of providing good functionality to someone.
The tracking mechanism seemed to be stuck and would start jittering back and forth at a certain position every time. I discovered that the little plastic drive gear of the position servo shaft was split between two of the teeth and that's where the mechanism was sticking.
This seems to be an odd-ball size and after a couple of days of looking, my google skills have failed me and I have not been able to find a replacement.
Its specs are...
Product Name : Plastic Gear
Outer Diameter: 5.5mm; Shaft Diameter : 2mm; Thickness : 5mm
Material : Plastic;Color : White
Teeth : 12;Modulus : 0.5
I Can match the OD/ID but only with 10 teeth and all the 12 teeth ones I've found start at 7mm OD.
Does anyone know of a source for this gear?
Thanks in advance for whatever help offered.
