Question about Audiovox VM9512 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

2 len's on pick up

Please ignore the product number this is listed for, it would not let me post a question with the proper model number, kept asking for a valid product.

Thanks for that link with the picture of the pick up with 2 len's on it, I have been fixing DVD players since they have been on the market and this is a first for me. What brand is this from? It is probably from a brand I have not serviced before. I work at a authorized service center for Pioneer, Kenwood, Panasonic, Samsung, Denon, Marantz, and many more brands and this is a first for me.

Once again, thanks for setting me straight. I hope you didn't think I was trying to disrespect you, but I really had not ever seen a pick up with 2 len's in it before and I have been fixing these type of products for 18 years now.

Look at that thread again, the asker is now wanting more help and is wondering why he is not getting any help. He did give somebody a "FixYa!" rating, so I can not think of any reason to keep helping him. I wish FixYa! would do a better job of telling people how to handle the responses they get from experts better. This guy probably didn't realize that once he give a FixYa! rating to anybody that it is considered a solved problem. This guy has an electrical problem that is not going to be fixed with any help he can get here. It is probably a bad pick up, or could be in the DSP circuit, but it ain't an easy fix.

Hello Dave,
I did not think you were disrespecting me in any way and I knew that maybe you did not come across one like that.
The DVD player is an Electrohome model # EH8181A. Kind of old.
The premium system needs to change, so the customer can see all the replies.
Is all good here Dave.
Take care.

Need product key for Microsoft windows 8.1

what type and model number is the PC? There should be a serial number sticker from Microsoft on the CPU unit it self, unless your computer that was home built, which isn't a problem as long as you purchased the Microsoft Windows 8.1 full install version. Could I give you a valid serial number? sure, but that would be both unethical and Illegal. My suggestion would be to go to the person that sold you the computer, and ask him to give you the product key that was supposed to be attached to the cpu. and lastly, even if someone posted a product key here, it would be blacklisted and shown on installation as invalid.

I tried to write a tip. No luck b/c you kept asking me to choose a product or category from your drop down list. I could not pull up that list. YUCK! Wasted 30 minutes.

Hi Gramps Johnson,
I'm sorry that you were not able to post your tip.
I understand that the products drop down list did not open and that you could not choose your product.
Can you please try again, this time start typing the product name or the model. the drop down should then open and show you a list of products. If you can't find the specific product you were looking for, try a more general category. For example, if you couldn't find 123xyz Samsung Washing Machine, try looking for Samsung washing machines.
Your tip will still be available under all Samsung washing Machine types.
I hope I was able to help. If you need further assistance, you can always contact us at:

I just bought this brand spankin' new emachine computer and it has the MS Office Home and Student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Product Key. Now it will not let me open any of my dcuments in...

Assuming that the MS Office Home and Student software is already loaded/installed, you'll want to enter the Product Key to validate the software license. If it's not pre-loaded, you'll want to install the software using the CD's
Usually the Product Key (a string of many digits) is found on the software CD, the CD jacket (holder) or the software documentation that came with the computer. If it / they are not provided, you'll want to ask the vendor for them. After you enter the Product Key and after it's validated and you are properly "registered", you'll be able to use the software, to open and type documents, etc.

McCulloch 14 In 2 Hp Electric Saw Manual

McCulloch Manuals
Illustrated Parts Lists: (IPLs) are fairly simple. On the underside of McCulloch saws is a black and yellow tag; the upper number (“Power Mac 320” 600021H) is the model, below it a serial number (11-18555). These 2 numbers are combined to create an IPL number (“Power Mac2.gif 320” IPL number = 11-600021H). The IPL number can be used to find the correct IPL for every McCulloch parts supplier I’ve found. If the parts supplier only list part numbers the proper IPL is the source for the part number.
Operator’s Manuals: are much more difficult. I’ve dialed this number many times (Contact us - All McCulloch Products 1 (800) 521-8559) and have yet to get a satisfactory response. Please try this! If enough of us try they will fix it! Ive had the greatest success here:

The ceramic cooktop on my Jenn Air downdraft model JED8403bdb has cracked. I can't find instructions for replacing just the glass. Is this because it is best left to a professional? Any advice appreciated.

You are correct in your assessment that leaving a cracked cooktop in place could present a potential hazard. Are you sure you have the correct model number posted? I ask because I found a JED8430 model number listed at with the glass top, item number 935927, listed for $215. There's also another one listed as item number 948440 for $226. The second glass top also requires 4 corner tapes (item number 696731). Of course, these prices did not include shipping. Something you may consider, though. If this is not your model number, then ignore the previous question.

Click on the following link for the step-by-step instructions I said I would offer you:

If the instructions are insufficient, please let me know. If you have any questions along the way, also let me know. I hope this helps you.
