Where can you buy/sell LDs in Hong Kong?

Filed in GeneralTags: ,

I have quite a collection of LDs (LaserDiscs); over 600 of them. I'm considering letting them go although I'll keep them if I can think of a way to get my friend's 35kg professional LD player from Sydney to Hong Kong.

Does anyone know of a place that buys and sells LDs?

Update

Our neighbour (who at one stage had over 1000 LD discs) has informed me that there's a repair service in Shatin that repairs LD players. Our Pioneer player is beyond repair because the carriage is warped, but the Sony MD-1 might still be serviceable, just not by Sony. I'll take the Sony to the repair service and with any luck have a useable LD Player very soon.

    Why needing a professional LD-player? What's wrong with a normal
    one?

    hello BorninHK,

    there's nothing wrong with a 'normal' LD player. it's just that both of our players are (apparently) beyond repair and this one friend is the only person I know who has an LD player and is willing to part with it. it just happens to be a professional model, and consequently very heavy. it'll be interesting trying to bring it back to Hong Kong.

    Hey Gregory,

    I'm happy to assist with bringing up some of the LDs from Sydney as I'm going back to Hong Kong during Easter.

    Cheers,

    Hi Gregory,

    Once you get your LD player working, suggest you try converting your LD collection to DVD. all you need is a video capture card on your laptopPC and connect the LD player to it and installed the sofrware and play the LD and it capture and convert it to DVD format. similar to converting VHS to DVD as LD is analogue same as VHS.

    or get a stand alone DVD recorder with analogue inputs for video & audio and connect both together and there you have it.

    here is a forum link for ideas on how to do it

    Hey Gregory,

    I say if you can, keep the LD's! its a old skool format and probably wont worth much if you do happen to sell them. Get the players fixed.

    Do you remember your music teacher, Mr. Joe Lo? I'm his music student. I remember, he told me you were studied MIDI from him, right? How are you now? Not in TV? What are you doing now? Doctor?

    There are 2nd hand LD players out there. I had seen it many times. Years back I heard Director Ko Chi Sum on radio saying he can't find a working player to play LDs....so I always keep a watchful eye on this.
    When I see one in 2nd hand shops (e.g. Salvary Army family store) I will let you know.
    You can't sell LD for any return. I saw them lying around in Alp Liu Street or 2nd hand shops getting dust. Even if you donate to charity groups I don't think they are happy to handle them.

    Wait for my good news.

    I found a Pioneer CLD95 at this shop at Alp Liu Street, Kowloon.

    (The site is in Chinese and it was putting up a complain. Well, there were more negative report to this shop before. So, test before you buy, and buy at your own risk. )

    They asked a price of 9xx. The shopkeeper suggested I can talk the price down.

    Checking the web, this model is quite a high end model.....well, as long as it works. (grin)

    Michael,

    thank you for your desire to help.

    someone suggested auction.yahoo.com.hk and I found a Pioneer CDL-D970 there for a "Buy Now" price of HK$298. the remote cost another $50 (I unfortunately and ignorantly dumped the one we had) but the LD player works perfectly and we've been enjoying our collection of LDs, most of which we haven't viewed yet even though we've had them for years!

    cheers,
    Gregory

    本人在住所附近有一隻約一歲大的唐狗女,已經有一年時間,牠是在約二毎月大時被人遺棄,曾經給人打傷,所以很怕接近人,我們每天也會給牠食物,牠也十分保護附近的同是流浪貓兒!昨天,不幸給漁護處捉了,很多街坊也為牠流淚.因為不希望牠被人道毀滅,實在無法接受,只好暫認作為主人,領牠出來,但本人的屋苑未能飼養狗隻,很多機構因滿額而未能接收.從愛護動物協會的訪問中,知道你是十隻狗和一隻兔子的主人,對被人遺棄的唐狗照顧有加,本人冒昧請求閣下能夠收養牠。如能拯救牠,本人十分感激,亦期待你的回覆.
