Well, as some of you may know from other recent threads, my beloved Panasonic RP91 died the other day after two years of faithful service. To make matters worse, tonight my daughter came and told me our new Spirited Away DVD was still inside the player, so I tried my best to open the disk tray without the benefit of power (the unit wouldn't even turn on). My attempts were gentle at first and then became increasingly less so until I finally managed to snap the front cover off the disk tray. Frustrated and beaten at this point (the DVD was still trapped inside), my first instinct was to continue in my idiocy with ever increasing levels of violence against the machine until it lay in pieces on my livingroom floor and I stood triumphant over its dismantled carcass, the Spirited Away DVD held like a trophy in my hands, but my daughter (whose senses have not been blinded by testosterone) suggested we *open* the player instead and try to get the disk that way. Her idea was, of course, fantastic (not bad for a nine year old). Not only did we get the disk out, but I found that the fuse inside had slid from its contacts and that replacing it restored my player to full glorious function! Except for the door, which opens fine but must now be pushed shut, accompanied by a very unpleasant grinding sound, all thanks to my stupidity. Must be a moral in here somewhere.
