I have the same unit, and the same problem with audio missing. Right now, my
unit is on the engineering bench at the television station where I work. If
they can find the problem, I will report back here!

I'm sad to report the engineers gave a through check-out on my RCA SGT 100 CED
disk player. The engineer left a note...

"There is a carrier at 4.5 mhz above visual, but no audio on it. I checked
around on the board and never did find any audio."

What, exactly, is the scheme for audio recording on the disk? Anyone care to
speak technically about it?

I'm looking for "TRON" on CED... Let me know if anyone has one that
they'd like to sell.......

Other CED Stuff.....

I liked the orange letterbox at the beginning of Cheech & Chongs "Up In
Smoke" CED ... I think they should have done the whole movie in the
orange letterbox.... 

Are parts of a movie ever taken out of a CED to compensate for time???
It seems to me that certain parts of "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" are
missing... On the same note, I hate how they edited "Close Encounters
Special Edition" on Laser Disc. The whole part about building the
mountain in the house was taken out.....  

How hard is it to break a needle on a CED player??? I've played some
pretty awful looking CED movies and I still haven't broken a needle... I'm
amazed that I havent...... Has anyone had a needle break yet??? What
happens when a needle does break or wear out???? 

More Later....

    Have a small question about the skt-400?  I'm wondering about the
reject mode on the 400's.  How is the action suppose to properly be
carried out?  Sometimes (depending on what I don't know?) it will come to
a slow percise slowdown with the platter and disc gradually, and some
other times it will "more aburtply" come to a more suddenly stop and then
you can here the friction and sliding of the disc upon the platter itself.
It will do this more so, when you press the reject button also.  Is there
a point where you should wait to reject or "is there a danger to this
happening where it could be scarring the disc in the machine???

Subject: The Very Last VideoDisc

A manager who was still working at the pressing plant when it closed on June 27,
1986 told me the last title released was "Jewel of the Nile." Several of these
were framed for distribution among the management staff with the legend "This
Last RCA VideoDisc Produced Is Dedicated To ......  1986" .  This is the only
1986 title I've seen that isn't listed on any of RCA's impending release
bulletins, so the decision to press it must have been a last minute thing. It
doesn't seem to be an extremely rare title, which is odd, because how did people
become aware of its existence to buy it? Perhaps RCA sent out an announcement to
their dealer network stating this was the final title available. The ones I've
seen also have two labels glued directly over each other on the caddy, so RCA
must have been gathering up all their miscellaneous caddies when this was
