Merits and demerits of fixing things

Postby Kimi » Sat, 11 Jun 2005 11:01 pm

I have this MD player I bought in Japan that is actually still working, but it has been quite dodgy for some time in taking more and more battery power and to be less and less mobile as it stops working when it's shaken even just a little.
I suppose I can get a new toy, but I already have heaps of MDs with me which I don't really fancy in converting to MP3 files, so was wondering if anybody here who is electonic literate can suggest whether this kind of thing is fixable, if it is whether there is any recommendation as to where, etc.
Cheers.

I don't believe that your MD is taking more batt power, more likely the battery is losing its ability to hold the charge longer when it does last time. Another thing is products that is bought overseas, the local service centre will not accept them. Maybe you need to clarify with them first on the repair charges or conditions. If not, just buy one new set over here.
