Yesterday, I got a Fedex shipment of a second Hitachi VIP1000. I opened the box today and found a player surrounded by 3 layers of bubble wrap. I unwrapped the player and put it on my workbench. I went to remove the cover and found a strip of Magic Tape placed over 2 of the screws. Written on the tapes were the words "Warranty Seal" followed by someone's initials. I thought to myself: After 37 years, I think the warranty has expired. I removed the screws and opened up the player. I found the loading belt looking normal as was the arm drive belt. I touched the loading belt and it fell apart. I picked up one of the pieces and it turned to goo between by fingers. The arm belt was also goo even though it looked normal. I cleaned the pulleys using a kleenex and IPA and was able to get them clean enough to work with the new belts. The player now works. I have to check the video and audio next.

I had sent a message to the seller to insert a piece of cardboard into the front of the player. Since the time between the order and shipping was about a half hour, I figured that the seller did not do what I requested. Well, he did insert the cardboard just as I asked. Good seller.

More later.

I tested the audio and video on this player and they work well. Since I have no history for the stylus, the PQ is good to fair.. The SQ is good. I do have a stylus that was graded by CEDdata.com as being B- which I will test the player with.

More later.
