    When I first brought it home I had to take it apart and remove a great deal of dog-hairs from the mechanical parts inside :rommie:

    I think it could do with a cleaning again: the speed fine-adjustment sticks a bit :sigh:

    Hmm, dog hairs are unlikely, but almonds and rolled oats are a definite possibility. My late pet rats ruined my old fax machine by filling every opening with peas...
    My old appartment was a bit moist - some contacts might be corroded and there's propably a lot of dust inside as well. I've never opened it. Yet.

    ^That is such a funny story! Sorry, but I cant help laughing at the little critters :rommie:

    I used to have a (late model) VHS-cassette deck, I took it with me several times each week (I was the guy with the good machine). All these times, plugging and un-plugging SCART-cables, ended up with me having to re-solder the SCART-plug connections.

    Back in them days you could actually do some repairs on media players right in your home :eek:


    Now listening to:

    Ah, I remember playing stacks of wax back in the 60s. The model we had was like a piece of furniture. If somebody from the 21st century looked at it, they'd probably think it was a cabinet or a hope chest at first. :rommie:

    This isn't the exact model-- I have no idea what the exact model was-- but it's the same general idea:

    cool! My one is the portable version. You can clip the speakers to the player and carry it around like a suitcase (it has the same size and weight as one for a 2 week vacation ;) )
