This is a laserdisc player that was pulled from the Spaceship Earth ride at Disney world in Orlando FL. It was computer controlled to play video sequences for the ride. The ride has since been upgraded I'm assuming digital video stored on a server. After a few hours of tweaking & adjusting the potentiometers this 30 year old player (As of this writing, Unit was made in 1979) worked like new! These sony machines are definitely work horses it was in use at disney all day everyday for around 10 years, It even had the laser replaced once as someone left a note & date of the replacement, Laser tubes are typically good for 10,000 hours. I have two of these that run like new & plenty of replacement parts. Would be pretty cool to see in a museum one day.
These are pretty easy to service, The whole laser lens unit is held in with 4 big philips screws So taking out the whole unit is really easy. The motor, laser & lens all comes out as a whole. I removed the unit to clean the x,y, scan mirrors & the other optical componets.
