Subject: Re: RCA SFT100W question

The first thing to try with this player is the substitution of a known good
stylus cartridge, as the problem could be that simple. A visual inspection of
the stylus tip may also reveal problems. There should still be a point on the
stylus tip and no gunk build-up. There isn't a way to convert this player to
stereo short of interfacing the stereo board from an existing SGT200 or SGT250
player, but separate A/V outputs can be added. Go to this URL for more info on
this: >I just got one of these players for $8.00 and it doesn't seem to work. When a >disk is inserted and play is pressed, the disk spins up, the time indicator >just displays -- and a short burst of video with no sync appears on the >screen.

To: not sure if i got the address right for this digest, but here goes anyway... i just bought an rca sft100w yesterday at a thrift store for $5, knowing full well that it probably wouldn't work when i brought it home. of course, it did not. i'm thinking of trying to fix it (if the problem is nontrivial), and thought i'd describe some of its problems first before i dove into this project. when turned on, the LED reads L, which I assume means load? it then apparently loads the disc just fine, no weird noises or anything. if i then put the level on "play," the LED switches to "--" at this point. i don't hear any noises coming from the machine, and nothing appears on my tv screen... it's completely black. when i put the switch on "Off," then, it makes a noise as if the disc is starting to spin, and a fan begins blowing air out of a vent on the bottom left side of the chassis. so, it strikes me that the parts appear to be doing SOMETHING, but just aren't working for some reason. does anyone recognize these as symptoms of a specific problem? does anyone have any advice? i'm not going to pour a lot of money into this machine, but if it's an easily fixable problem, i'd like to give it a shot. any comments appreciated! === Sean C.
