The Cd lens moves along a threaded wind you may find this has been damaged or some build up of dust is interfering

just take a look with a torch just into the gap in the guide tracks and see if anything is stuck, failing this, try f/f and rew many times this may clear anything in the way into and back into the 2 min zone

but if you are getting discs that load very slowly it may well be the lens failing too

The auto stop mechanism seems to have completely stopped working. When play a cassette, it eats it. When you put the deck into play mode without a cassette and push on the pinch roller with your finger, it...

When's the last time it was cleaned? It surely needs it now.

Never touch the any part of the transport that directly contacts the tape with bear fingers.

This sounds like a failure of the take-up (left) reel to take up slack as it's fed in by the capstan.

You can probably trust the machine to fast forward or rewind a tape to test the ability of the reels to manage slack since either action only requires one reel to pull while the other just coasts. Failure would look like stationary tape that eventually would time out and reset the command.

If it won't do fast transport motions that eliminates the capstan/pinch roller.

If it CAN FF and REW then the capstan, pinch roller, heads or something is probably glommed up with sticky tape oxide, which brings us back to the first question.

There is a small thin tin measuring spoon wedged under the grinding plate of the disposal. I have tried to work it out with some long nose pliers but can't seem to free it. Your suggestion?

I know this sounds odd, but it was all I could do shy of replacing mine, first of all, use vice grips not pliers that way you know you have a good hold on it,, try getting it out once you have the better grip on it,, if that doesn't work,, I wiggled the item that was stuck in mine back and forth until it finally broke off, and pushed down on what was left ,, silly I know, But it works and I didn't have to get a new one

Toshiba RT-SX1 possible input?

The preamp inside the mic input should be removed to turn it into a line input. You could just jump it however it'll have a lot of background noise if you do not remove it entirely. It requires knowledge of electronics and some soldering. And it wouldn't be really worth it since a mic input is mono.

Disney pixar cars tv/dvd combo turn on but shuts off in minutes

Ours did the exact same thing.. I Decided the remote thing was worth a try. I turned the TV to DVD (without a DVD in the player) pressed the set up button (on remote) and Restored the Default option. (Highlighted Default; highlighted Restore then pressed OK) Then exited the set up. I did this twice just to make sure, LoL well.. it's been on over 4hrs now with no problem.. seems like this fixed it.. hope it helps!!

JVC RC-QN2 - How to use the microphone on this unit?

That model seems to pre-date JVC's online manuals.
Let's try a little logic here though:
- Can it record on FM?    No - Can it record on CD?   No - Can it record on tape?   Probably. And if it is set up as most such devices, it will have to be switched to 'Tape,' then 'Record' and if you don't wish to actually put anything on tape, you may still have to have one in the drive and just leave it on 'Pause.'

How to get in to clean the lens for RP-9316 Boombox

I had the same issue. Over time, the cd player quit palying at all. The unit would try to read the cd but couldn't and then skip to the next cd.
- I took fairlane's advice and put a cd in and listened for the ticking sound to indicate that the laser was trying to read the cd. I also looked inside through the top "vent" area to be sure the cd was actually spinning. It was spinning and I heard what I thought I was "ticking" sound so I guessed that the laser needed to be cleaned.
- I took off the 6 side panel screws on the right side of the entire unit and loosened the screw on the backside off the unit about halfway down from the top that also held the side panel on.
- I then removed the side panel.
- I then removed the 2 screws on the top side of the other side panel and the screw in the top center back of the top panel and was able to remove the top cover that is over the unit. The top cover is "pressure fitted" in so be careful as you try to remove it, using a little wiggle at a time, but it does comes off.
- Once you have the top off, there is a screw in the center of the plate that holds the tray for the cd's. Remove the screw and you will able to lift and spin the tray to have clear access to the laser
that needs to be cleaned. (Note the position of the numbers on the tray so you put it back the right way.)
- The laser is a little "glassy" looking thing about the size of the head of the q-tip.
- I used the q-tip with 70% isopropol alcohol and rubbed it over and around the laser as best I could. I repeated the procedure 2-3 times and the used compressed air to dry it off.
- I put everything back in place in the reverse order I took it off, based on what's in the above steps.
- Remember, the top will fit in with pressure so don't get anxious as you try to get it in the right position.
The cd's actually play again.
I hope this will help someone.

You're welcome in advance.
This particular unit was advertised to be unbreakable when dropped due to its shock absorbers; therefore dropping it will fix it.
