My conclusions from the responses I got to that: forget about repairs, its not cost-effective, instead >just look for a hand-me-down replacement. Between TIVO and DVDs, the VCR is rapidly becoming a >device which people no longer need at all and are willing to give away (or sell for much less than the cost of >repairing a VCR). Some electro-kinetic scultpure artists I know (in London ) remind everyone that old VCRS are a good source of easily adaptable small motors and requested anyone throwing them out throw in their direction -- obviously not all the way from DC but perhaps similar artists over there might find them useful too. http://dorkbot.org/ is how I got to know these people, I don't see a DC group listed tho'. Blast of ice from the Past... I am visiting my folks in Toronto; my Dad was cleaning the attic and located Icehouse "First 100" set # 67 , I was wondering where that got to! The box is a trifle dinged up, and the pyramids stuck to that foam a little bit .. but they seem to be all there, plus some original Hypothermia newsletters. The label fell off the box, it is still there (inside the box) fortunately!
