I haven't seen any systemic power problems with J/K players. The next easiest thing to check on the SJT090 player is the power switch. With the cover off, make sure the switch is latching as it is toggled between ON and OFF. Sometimes the button on the outside of the player doesn't properly engage the switch. >Like I said I got the 200 model to work but when I watch the movies I have >in some spots the picture looks like multi colored bubbles. and skips >in sections. I looked at the disks and they seem fine. Is there anything >i can do to the player to make this not happen? If the skips are repeatable, and likewise the good sections of the discs repeatedly play OK, I'd say you're observing normal skipping due to damaged areas on the discs. If this player were an F/G unit, I'd guess the multicolored effect is due to a variable turntable RPM rate, but this is unlikely with a J/K unit. If you have a digital camera, you could take a photo of this multicolor bubble effect and attach it to a followup message to the digest. I'll transfer it to the web and provide the URL so digest readers can take a look at it. --Tom
