I have a Turbo Duo where the FMV's on CD games are slow or freeze.  I assume the laser needs to be replaced?  If so, is there someone that can replace the laser and regrease the gears, spindle, etc.?  Thanks.


Hi @shaggy, good to have ya stop by.

One of the few active repair people left is @Keith Courage - check his profile for contact on YouTube, Facebook, etc. I linked him your question since I can usually reach him on FB.


He's actually the one who re-capped my Duo 6 years ago.  I dropped him a message on here but hadn't heard back.  I guess I know why now.  Thanks for your help.


Hi, There is a guy on eBay named Chris who calls himself turbografxfan.
He does great work and has a 3 or 4 day turn-around time.  He can do almost anything with T16, PCE, DUO and Express. 
He can replace the laser with a unit from an older sony discman.
Sounds like your issue could be related to failed capacitors, but Chris will thoroughly recondition your unit. 
Hope this helps.
