The Front-Loader module (P) in the Philips VP415 Domesday LaserDisc player is a mechanical weak-point and is prone to damage when the player is transported.
This project provides a modern replacement for the module made with durable, industrial-grade parts. The replacement can be simply dropped into the player and requires no alteration. As well as fixing existing broken players, the module is a useful upgrade even if the original module still functions as it has better switches and electrical protection compared to the original.
The project is available from this link.
