Question about Audio Players & Recorders
It is a combination of feed speed and welding amps and correct gas flow
if you are using core flux wire and not gas make sure that you reverse polarity for the flux wire

SOURCE: Dont know what part to weld!!
I hope I can help you since so much time has passed. This is a rather common problem with the SDMX1 and that is because the headphone jack was installed with too little solder. Here is what you do.
1. Dismantle the player by removing 3 screws ( 2 at one end and 1 at the other).
2.Carefully pry the end caps away.they should pop off.
3.lift the upper half of the case from the joystick end gently.
4.lift the entire circuitboard out. watch where the battery terminals are.
5.look at the headphone jack where it is installed on the smaller circuitboard.
6.on both left and right sides of the jack down on the circuitboard you will see 2 solder connections.
7.these are for the left and right channels.
8.if you look carefully (you might need a magnifying glass), you will probably see a very small break in the connection.
9.using a pointed soldering iron (no soldering gun here!), simply resolder BOTH connections using a very small amount to solder. This will most likely solve your problem.
10.put everything back together and it's as good as new. VERY EASY.

I have the same welder. Worked well for 15 years until the drive bearing stopped spinning. I cleaned and oiled the bearing and it has been working like a coon on the farm since. Nice 120 volt welder....

I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.

try changing the tip and make sure your ground connection is good on the steel and in the machine sometimes the ground wire in the machine comes loose
