Seems "" is out of business or their website is the one at 
"" which has no listings for video products, let alone CED 
players or discs.

The most likely cause is failure of the audio FM demodulator integrated circuit 
which results in no sound on mono players or sound on one channel only with 
stereo players. Check this URL for more info: > >I cannot re-insert the cover to activate the disc removal function. There >seems to be a blockage of the left corner of the slot.

Tom in Rye NY Any suggestions would be helpful If this is an F/G style player, this blockage is probably due to a broken pivot on the left receiver pad assembly.

Date: Sat, 22 Jul 2000 17:25:25 -0500 Hi all, I just picked up my first CED machine (RCA SJT100) with a few discs after wanting one for a few years. My machine has an excellent picture and works well, but the sound level is very low even with the television at full volume. Any ideas? Also, the CED Magic website refers to the SJT100 as a mono player, but mine is a stereo model. Did they make both variations under the same model number? Thanks Tom for the wonderful CD and drive belts!

Sonnenfeldt To: <> Greetings All: You may recall a few months ago Richard Sonnenfeldt, former RCA VideoDisc Vice President and chief Nuremberg interpreter, was interviewed in a History Channel program about Albert Goering, brother of Hitler henchman Hermann Goering. The July 2000 issue of IEEE Spectrum has an article on the interesting and varied life of Mr. Sonnenfeldt with quite a bit of info on his VideoDisc years. As seems to be the case with a number of former CED employees, Sonnenfeldt considers the VideoDisc years among the most rewarding of his career. The article includes a photo of Sonnenfeldt with his SFT100 player and RCA television that he keeps in his den. His grandchildren still watch CED's on it when they come to visit. -- Tom
