Subject: Wanted: turntable

Hello -

I am looking for a balanced turntable RCA part #155880 to replace one that
took a hit when a disc did not drop properly onto the spindle of my SJT300.
Not quite sure if the turntables were universal over all of the players -
can anyone advise on this?  May be interested in trading for parts you
might need from a second SJT300 that I have.

Thank you,
Jim Long

I am interested in getting rid of my STAR TREK II and MASH CED Discs.  The 
Mash CED Disc is the 1981 RCA Version.  Both should play really well, and I 
am asking $5.00 each plus shipping.  Please email me at if you are interested 
in them.

Subject: Help with a Skipping CED needed
Date: Wed, 4 Oct 2000 18:28:31 -0400

After looking over the CEDMagic website, I thought I had the problem licked.
I just bought an RCA SFT100 CED Player on eBay and when I got it, every disc 
I put in it would took only a few minutes to play a side and what 
picture there was was not very good.  I ordered and got a new RCA 14900 stylus 
cartridge, and guess what? I got the same problem...only the video that is 
scanned through looks better.  There's a definite clicking noise going on while 
the stylus is skipping over the discs (believe me, I tried quite a few and they 
are all the same), so that would indicate a stylus or stylus arm problem.  Any 
Thanks in advance,
Rich Meyer

Subject: Need a tip.....Or 2.

Having put in my very first post to this newsletter, I was very surprised to 
have as much response and warm welcomes as I did. I thank one and all for the 

I need a troubleshooting tip for my Zenith VP-2000. I looked in the 
troubleshooting section on CEDMagic's homepage, but couldn't quite find one 
that matched. Basically, I have to nudge the play arm to get it to start 
playing the first groove on the CED/get it to play at all. I have replaced the 
stylus cartridge and cleaned all I could possibly clean without getting too far 
into the Zenith itself. Anybody have any ideas?

Also, my turntable makes a scratching/rubbing noise when it first spins up. I 
have an idea on what's doing it, just no clue where anything is located. I 
read on some adjustment screw, but not sure if my player is F/G or J/K. Can 
someone help me with that problem also?

And finally, wondering something. Those stylus cartridges I bought from MCM 
were marked with different "letters" right around the top of them by the 
plastic "handle" you pull them out of the player with. I had a guess. I pulled 
stickers off of the box my stylus came in from MCM and discovered it was a 
STEREO stylus cartridge. Seems strange, but didn't think that had anything to 
do with the playing ability of my player. Just a curious thought, but anyone 
who knows, please fill me in. Aloways willing to learn something that may help 
me troubleshoot later on.

I thank one and all for reading!
