I would take some contact electric contact cleaner, I think radio shack carries this. unplug the unit saturate it with this cleaner and keep pushing it in while spraying around the button. then let it set for a while to dry out. this stuff evaporates pretty quickly.

Why does it keep indicating no disc?

it's possible that your cdgs may be defective or need cleaning. If it needs cleaning you will have to buy a cleaning kit. Other options for cleaning that may be available to you would be homemade cleaning.

If you are willing to workaround it, you may want to consider burning your CD content to a DVD, otherwise I highly recommend finding a electronic repair store.

The buttons on remote stick. When I press FF, Play, List, etc. it doesn't make the connection. If I press and hold it will sometimes work.

The remote is failing, if buttons are sticking its not worth repairing. Go to ebay and search for a used remote, and buy it. Search for MX-7800 remote.

Hi, after about an hour of playing, my machine starts missing parts of song, often sticks and skips tracks, it does this on all the formats that we use, ie CD+G , Neo+G, Zoom DVD, RSQ SH01 [ 1200 songs ]...

This sounds like a CD read error problem. I would clean the read head (read instructions for this as the head is very fragile).
If there is any chance of warranty being active, exercise it.
ALSO verify the discs are CLEAN with no smudges on the read surface. If you have dirt, clean with windex, rinse, and wipe OUTWARD radially, not in circles.
Remember these disks read from inside out unlike phonograph records.

My ge cafe gas oven light won't turn off

The switch which activates your light probably is stuck/broken in the on position.It should be similar to a refrigerator where you can see a small rod sticking out,or something that sticks out of the completely flat front of your oven with the door open.Sometimes there is an access panel,sometimes the whole panel comes off.The screws should be noticeable,almost flush on the front.Sometimes they are covered with a cap for appealing looks.Those just pry or unscrew off.
You will have to order the part.Even if it is expensive,there probably is a $50 minimum for a repair center just to show up.Then labor,20% minimum parts price markup also.Greg Pull the circuit breaker before messing with any wires.

Some key are sticking cant type that good as normal, key are sometime hard to push , blow it ot with that stuff in a can

If they are still sticking after blowing the keyboard out you may have spill some form of liquid on it that is causing your problems.

If you are pretty adept you could carefully remove all the key caps and clean it out a little better.

If not you may want to consider taking it to a local repair shop.

Again if you are confident enough then laptop keyboards are not that expensive to replace (probably cheaper than a repair) It is usually a pretty simple task that would take anyone with some common sense about 15 -30 minutes to do.

In the mean time you could always buy a cheap USB or PS2 keyboard and use that (check which type you need)

I have a Neo Simply Key MP3 player user manual

I have a simply key too. You can activate it by holding the play button, press the switch on top to enter menus.
I can't find a manual either, but you could ask for help on the forum on the Neo website: but only the French version of the site seems to be accessable for now.
