Post Fixing My Sega CD
Hey Everyone,

I own a 2nd generation genesis and Sega CD, but recently the spindle isn't holding discs up high enough to prevent them from being scratched by the grooves on the bottom of the disc tray. From what I can tell, the spring that holds the spindle up higher has gotten worn out and loose. Does anyone know of a cheap but effective way to replace the spring and where I might find parts?

Part 7 of the link Artemio listed looks like it will hopefully help. If not, and you are pretty handy, buying a model for parts might be your best bet. http://r.ebay.com/Ljca3C

Thanks guys. I dug around in the Sega-16 forums for a while and found that I can either raise the spindle (which doesn't seem to be working) or I can replace it with a ps1 spindle. Gonna have to try this sometime in the summer.
