I used a different computer from the one I usualy use to join the group and one of the settings was inacurate I had assumed that it was somthing like connecting the leads to ground and since there was a post convienently labeled ground I connected them to ground but when i connected them to the ground and closed every thing up and attempted a test of the system when turned on the display led's went wacky and gave a blinking E affraid i turned it off and unpluged it i disconnected it and removed the leads now there isn't any video output just a black screen the player still seems to work ok besides that the machine powers up and stylus begins play and soon the sound from the disc begins but no video I did take the RF modulator box cover off at one point could that be the problem? I think i did get the lil switch arm back over the switch inside the RF modulator box hope I haven't fried anything important but even if it's somthing that is replaceable I have no idea how to figure what needs replacing.
