Not sure if I am in the right place or am allowed to ask this (plz tell me if so)
Where in Auckland or better Tauranga, NZ can I send an older Lazer Disk player to have the lazer properly cleaned.  I did try some canned air on it but it did not do the job and I don't feel comfortable dismantling this item as they are hard to replace should i muck up.

It may be more serious than just a clean. The spindle motor could be running at the wrong speed, or the laser might not be focussing. I can recommend Etronics in Fairfield Road Hamilton.

Hardy's Supertech Services in Ak used to be the people to see for LD repairs.

Years ago I used them for RF output mods and regular servicing of my LDPs.

Not sure if they are still in business.

Otherwise try Monaco in Ak, they are the NZ Pioneer importers.
