  10. Internal battery for MZ-R5ST deck

    The mainboard battery for the deck is a flat topped AA - at a squeeze you can push fit a standard rechargeable AA (NiCd or NiMH) - they will actually go in, just persevere - I have fitted to six of my units. The flat topped versions are available on ebay. The Lip8 carcass contains a standard 14650 battery - just open the carcass along the seam (there are a couple of self locking tabs) - carefully remove the old battery by pulling off the tags with pliers and insert the new one - no need to solder, the battery will make contact well enough to work properly - reassemble the carcass and that's it. Lip-8s are almost impossible to find.

  12. Problem with Sony ja20es

    Looks like the plastic moulded shaft from an intermediate gear on the traverse (sled) drive train has broken from the plastic mount and needs stripdown to repair. Seen similar symptoms and in each case, that was the work needed and successfully completed, but tough to do properly..
