Subject: Question for the list
Date: Mon, 28 Feb 2000 13:04:31 PST

I know this is covered somewhere but I can't remember where. What happens
when I'm watching a disc sometimes is --at intervals between twenty and five
seconds-- the whole picture gets all wavy and there's a kind of rainbow
effect. The sound isn't really affected. I think this means that some
internal part is going bad; I think it's the belt but I can't remember
exactly. Any help would be appreciated, and advice, too, if you think I
should just replace the part in question or if there's some way to shore it
up. Thanks. I mean, what's the point of having Empire Strikes Back on CED if
it's that inconsistent --never mind some of the obscure stuff I want to

Parker's TV in Hawaiian Gardens in CA has a collection of CEDs. He won't
sell them for less than $10  each. They all appear to be in EXCELLENT
condition. No label wear at all.

He has a player in the back, also in need of parts.

Parker's TV (562) 431-3315
12016 Carson St, Hawaiian Gardens, CA 90716

Here is the URL to look at.

He's not connected to the Web at all. Somewhat of an old diehard.

He also has some antique television sets, even a tester for old TV and
radio tubes. Call him or send him some snailmail.

Subject: Platter Height Question

I see on Tom's web page that the platter height for direct drive
models should be one full turn of the screw beyond the point where
the platter just clears the surrounding structure.

What happens when the height is misadjusted too high?  Does it lead
to playback problems, and if so, what is the progression of these
problems as the height is set higher and higher?

Subject: Side indicator probs

My SJT200 has begun to intermittently not detect side 2.
That is, the little red light indicates side 1 when I've inserted
side 2 of a disc.

Just wondering what's involved in fixing this.  A simple bending
of a metal sensor or something along those lines?  I want to know
what I'll be in for when I open it up.

Subject: RE: Turntable Spindle Cap Removal on RCA F/G Players


The screws holding the spindle cap in place should come right off with a
Phillips No. 1 screw driver. A reason for their refusal to do so could be
fused threads from being overtightened on a previous removal. Using a No. 1
driver, you should apply whatever force is necessary to either loosen the
screws or strip the slots in the screw heads. If the screws come out,
inspect the threads for damage and replace if necessary. If the screw slots
strip, a Dremel tool with a cone-shaped grinding attachment can be used to
carefully grind the screw out. Then a drill and tap can be used to
re-establish the threads in the turntable yoke.
