Subject: RE: RCA F/G Player Playback Problems

Hello All: 

Recently there were a couple posts about problems with these machines. In one
instance a player advanced about half-way through playback and then halted. In
the other case the player would exhibit playback problems at about one minute
intervals during playback. Both problems could have the same cause-- a worn-out
Servo Drive Belt. This belt drives the mechanism that advances the pickup arm
across the disc surface. Machines that halt at some point during playback may
also have an out-of-wack pickup arm or guide rail, which often happens when the
player absorbs a lateral impact. The effect of such an impact-- namely the
inability of the pickup arm to move any further, usually gets more pronounced
the closer the arm gets to the center of the disc. This can be corrected by
loosening the screws holding the pickup arm and guide rail in place and
tightening them in other positions. Replacing the Servo Drive Belt will
sometimes provide enough additional torque to overcome a modest misalignment
without resorting to loosening the screws. This belt is located at the right
rear of the player, and its precise location can be viewed in the F/G Chassis
photo provided in the "CED Player Belt Replacement Guide" at CED Magic. This
guide also provides specs on a replacement belt.

Hello---I am searching for a copy of BOBBIE JO AND THE OUTLAW on video
disc.  The movie stars Lynda Carter and Marjoe Gortner.  I don't collect
these discs, but I do collect Lynda Carter memorabilia.  I would like to
have a good copy to mainly be used as a display item.   

Thanks---Terry Haney
