The port where my power jack plugs in is 'wonky' and only makes intermittent contact. My suspicion is that the last time it was stored, there was tension on the jack, causing partial separation from the board. I am having difficulty getting the unit apart however. I have the front handle plate off, about 8 screws, plus another near the antenna mount. I am stuck at this point. Any help in this regard would be appreciated, as this unit was used only a few times and am hopefully looking forward to enjoying it some more.

There are a number of record players with included software that can be plugged into a USB port, but you could also use any HiFi and connect the audio output to the microphone input of a PC -- most likely with a cord with two RCA jacks to a stereo mini phone plug. The free Audacity software can record, filter, normalize and save the output to almost any audio format.

if the boom box has a Aux input socket somewhere the you need a male to male wire (like headphones but has plug on both ends) or go to dollar store and get one that leads to a cassette Sorry I can't remember what they are called but the cassette has a metal strip instead of a ribbon and then plug the wire into i pod and set boombox to tape, good luck P.s ipod may have different port sizes but headphone jack should be the same
No batteries wont make a difference.
But the type of area you are in will.
Such hills mountains trees and also if there is a antenna near for cell reception.
If you have cell reception you shouldn't have a problem.
But hills, mountains, and trees pose a problem for signals that are wave lengths.
Your local Radio Shack store sells all types of replacement appliance cord sets. Since you lost your cord and didn't just damage it, ideally bring the radio (or a photo of the power jack on it if unable) to the store so it can be matched. There are several different types - and some look very similar - but won't fit properly.
Faulty 3.5mm male to male cable maybe? I had the same problem with a cable I made myself, the wire was too thin and was just twisted together. I made it from 2 extension jacks I bought from a dollar store. I re-made it properly with 3.5mm jacks bought from an electronics store with thicker wires that I soldered on. It worked fine after that.
