Hi Tom:  First of all I want to say how much I enjoy getting the CED Digest.
 It is one of my favorite things I get in my email.  Hey somehow the previous
issue got deleted, I guess it was vol 2 no 12.  Was about a week or 10 days
ago and was very interesting to me and I need some info from it.  Could you
email me a duplicate of that one, please?  Thank you very much.  Glenn

Subject:  Flattening Disks

I tried to flatten my "Cheech and Chong" CED that was warped with the
two pieces of plexiglass and sun method and no luck.... I actually ended
up melting part of the disk. It was worth a try though.... I don't reccomend
this method of flattening warped disks to anyone... I've tried it. 

Maybe next time I'll try the convection oven method that I heard of..... Till
then, later....

So I have this CED player (SJT200) that makes a lot of noise while
it's playing, and I can look with the top cover off and see the
platter that the disc sits on is wobbling something fierce.  It's like
it's out of balance, but it *looks* more like it really is wobbling - 
that is, relative to the stylus, the disc is moving up and down very
quickly as it passes by, as if the shaft of the platter were too small
for the hole in which it sits.  Overall, the discs I have play okay,
usually with a brief A/V glitch every minute or so, and sometimes the
noise the player makes evens out, and becomes quiet for a few minutes,
then will go right back to being real noisy.

What's an easy/best way to fix this?  As an aside, what is the spec
height of the platter (adjustable on my model)?
