Re: Sega CD model 2 (MK4102) wont spin disc.

The Samsung model SOH90-T4N. Looking at those repair threads at Sega 16, seems like there are at least 3 different model 2 lens? Samsung, Sony, and JVC. You can tell by how your model 2's motherboard looks / how everything is connected as well. ... EBIDX%3AIT

Sounds like there's a replacement that actually works. Unlike the PS1. You can buy replacement lasers for the PS1 but they're all garbage.

It looks like he has the same one I do with the silver spindle. Inside mine was a Samsung SOH-T4 which is replaced by a Samsung SOH90-T4N which I found on ebay. I incorrectly bought a Sony Kss a couple of years ago and just gave up at the time.

There is an excellent guide here:

Thank you for this thread!

These are the exact symptoms I am having with my CD2.

Hopefully I have the same luck!
