Default Toshiba DVD player diode pinout

I just took apart a Toshiba DVD/CDRW drive from a laptop. *I haven't been able to find the pinout for this diode. *It's rectangular with rounded edges and has 12(!) pins arranged as so

* * * * * * * * *x x x x x
* * * * * * * *x * * * * * * o
* * * * * * * * *x x x x x

where the o pin is grounded to the case. *I has some writing on it which appears to read "C6fk3" but the "3" looks like backwards "E". *It has a thick piece of glass glued to the output with a small coated area on the middle of it.

Anyone seen anything like this before?

thats a IR diode for sure. the glass is the IR filter.

you need to get the diode from a DVD RW. just because it sayd DVD/CD RW doesnt mean it is a DVD RW / CD RW. usually means it is a DVD drive/ CD RW drive.


give us a picture and we could probably help you out some

I thought 655nm was used to read DVD disks... *

Why would there be an IR filter if it's an IR diode?

No camera, or I'd post a pic. :/

all i know is that non DVD burning drives do not have the 650nm diode in them. only the 808.

and yeah, the glass isnt IR... sorry... i think its some sort of filter, but i have only found them on IR diodes....


good luck!

Nope, dvd players contain a low power red diode and an ir, most likely what that is is an ir laser possible 80mw and a opitcal pickup all in the same can (no pun intended ;D)

...lazer... ;D ;D ;D
