>> I have an sgt200 that skips back to the beginning after playing the first
30-45 seconds of the disc.  at first I thought it was a problem with the
disc I was using, but it does it on every disc I've tried.
I'm thinking something along the lines of the stylus cartrige getting stuck,
but I
don't know enough about the internals to comfirm/fix it.  Any ideas? <<

Have you checked the belt which drives the carriage back and forth?
Can you manually advance into the movie?
This sounds like the carriage is either not moving or getting stuck somehow.
I had a problem with a SGT250 where the carriage was hitting the stylus
access cover latch, but this was much later in the movie.
There is some information on Tom's web site on this subject as I recall.

After recently purchasing a Zenith VP-2000 and having doubts about whether or 
not I wanted to get into the section of video. Felt I was gonna have a 
"Betaplayer flasback" or sorts. But, I'm kinda glad I did. It was a little 
troublesome at first, but due to weekly newsletters like this, I feel there 
isn't a problem I can't handle now. Except for that darm arm not moving 
forward when my CED is first loaded......

Also, MCM Electronics has sold there last 149000 and 154100 stylus cartridges.
I purchased the 149000, only to have it be defective. I then bought the 154100,
with great results.

Well, in closing, I would like to say that this is a great way for myself to 
keep or get in touch with other people who share my same interest. I just wish 
my videogame "peers" were as friendly as the CED and Beta person's I have come 
in contact with in the last 2 years.

Just wanting other CED enthusiasts to know there is another amongst you!
