I asked if you had an extra stylus for a J model player. I finally managed to
find one off of a busted SJT-090. I also bought a load of SFT-100 and SFT-100
equivalent players for $20.00 from a flea market. Miraculously, one of the
players still worked when I tested it. By the way, I have two questions to

1. You wouldn't happen to have an extra Hitachi VIP-2000 sitting around that
you would want to sell? (Parts may not be a problem, since I have a Realistic
CED-1 for parts and a spare Hitachi type stylus.)

2. I am in the process of restoring an RCA SFT-100. I am just about finished,
except, the pickup will not read the disc correctly. To add to the problem,
none of the visual search keys work. Whenever I press them, the audio is muted
but the picture does not advance. I rebuilt the mechanics properly, according
to a reference unit of the same model number. My guess is a fault in the
stylus kicker block. Any answers?

I know this is going a little off-subject, but the subject of heat 
buildup causing video problems in the SJT-400 reminded me of the recent 
disablement of my NEC VCR's digital special effects. Nobody makes VCRs 
with this feature anymore, for some reason I just cannot comprehend as it 
becomes something you can't live without once you have it. The digital 
effects board in mine got overheated, the repairman said this was a 
design flaw with this model- they put it too close to the motor and other 
parts that heated up a lot and it couldn't take it. I had to have him 
disable it just so I could still use it as a VCR, since on normal 
operation the video still passed through this board and since it died it 
made it extremely distorted. Luckily at the shop they had a used deck 
that had the same features plus a little more, and it was S-VHS which was 
one thing I didn't have yet. Don't ignore those vents on your equipment, 
do whatever it takes to see that they aren't covered up! If you have to 
stack your equipment, put something in between them on all 4 corners so 
they'll have some breathing space (I use 35mm movie previews from the 
theater I work at, since I collect those and take them as soon as they 
get pulled from the screens when the actual movie comes out.)
