KMS-260 vs KMS-262

Hello, I'm needing to replace the laser assembly in a MXD-D40 and it requires the KMS-262E or A. The KMS-260 is a lot easier to find. They look the same and just wondering if they are interchangeable? Is it just one is newer than the other?

Thanks

Just try... You will be able to sell back it if it do not fitted.

PhilippeC is right, it should fit.

A couple of notes though, you might want to consider:

- there were at least three variants of the KMS-260. While all those are pin compatible and share the same frame (therefore all three would fit mechanically and electronically the vast majority of the Sony MD decks), the laser power is different, and the deck must be set up accordingly

- either way, once you replace the OP, for proper settings (for the sake of longer laser lifetime) an LPM is necessary, as well as a test jig, to measure the IOP. These are both very sensitive values, and a wrong or loose setting can kill the laser in a relatively short time. (Not mentioning that the deck may not be able to read, write, or both, if settings are way out.)

Phamcu a former vietnamese member proposed - through me - some free MD lenses that has been aleady sent to some members of this forum. I have still 2 or 3 of them just in case. Vietnam is still a country were is quite easy to find old MD stuff, specially decks (then lenses), not Hi-MD ones though.

I wish I could reach him. Tried several times, on several channels, no reply. I would need a good 530 BD board - he probably has one pulled off.
