Alright here's the scoop, i'll be getting my new player in a couple of weeks, and i'll finally be rid of that little monster! It was owned by a friend of mine before me, and it gave him trouble as well, I bought it off him cheap and said fine, i'll get it fixed, well it's been fixed twice now and it's still giving me a hard time, so it's history, and when I say history, I mean HISTORY! My friend and I made plans, that when I get my new player, were gonna take the Panny out to a field near my house with a couple of baseball bats and take that little peice of shit to school! Yes, i've seen 'Office Space' too many times. I told him that he gets first swing at it since he owned it first. My question to you is, what does the Optical pick up unit look like? I ask because once the A-110 is busted open, i'm going to rip the optical pick up unit out of it and keep it as a trophy, hell, I might even mount it on the wall like a deers head, havn't decided yet. Perhaps someone could post a pic of it so i'll know what i'm looking for when we rip the guts out of it! Don't bother trying to talk me into selling it instead of destroying it, I am not interseted in money, I want vengeance! Thanks.
