On the positive side, it does have an Amalia Rodrigues* - Aranjuez, Mon Amour (Vinyl, LP) and a battery cover, I Gotta Get Out - Big Risk - Big Risk (Cassette). Turntable: Not working.
Hopefully just a Liu Kun - Hey, Young Man (CD, Album) issue! Door opens and closes nicely at least. Cassette: Not working also. The actual carriage inside for the tape to sit in is broken on one side and dangles down.
Not sure what to do about that. Tuner: This works, surprisingly. And most importantly, it picks everything up clear as a bell and sounds great.
So, plenty of minuses there, but on the big plus I Gotta Get Out - Big Risk - Big Risk (Cassette), at least i finally have one of these great units. I've downloaded an 85 page photo guide from this site on how to strip a VZ I Gotta Get Out - Big Risk - Big Risk (Cassette) and return it to working order, however, being a novice at this, it could be a bumpy ride.
I've already found a supply of belts and sliders thanks to many of the great members here, so i hope to do this boombox proud or at least a little prouder. I'll post a few pics soon. Cheers JB. Mar 11, 1, 1 0 41 Sydney, Australia. I've got a fairly good front case, tweeter cover and one volume Lo And Behold - James Taylor (2) - Sweet Baby James (Vinyl, LP, Album) I think!!
Stashed away somewhere. Pm me if you're interested, all I'll charge is postage from Sydney May 6, 6, 9 38 51 Maryland USA. Jul 14, 11, 0 36 51 Hudson Florida. Welcome and congrats on a great 1st box. Good Morning Well, i've been up til 5am working on the VZ Here's how it went: Opened up the how to strip down a VZ guide and immediately realised that it was very user friendly.
Second realisation was that i didn't have magnetic screwdrivers, which i can now assure you are a must for this operation. So, just in the nick of time, i get down the hardware store and pick some up. Back home, i start taking the screws out. Typically, what souns easy is a little more difficult when you haven't done it before and you are I Gotta Get Out - Big Risk - Big Risk (Cassette) of not breaking anything. Gently laying it against the right speaker grill, i can now see inside the unit, and i am shocked by how filthy it is Dont Gamble With Love. This is going to take some serious cleaning.
I leave it to one side. Next job is to separate the case. Leaving the tape cassette door open this is a must and removing the the power switch also a musti start trying to take the front and back screws out.
These are a bit of a bitch, and there doesn't appear to be as many in the back as the guide says. So i think to myself that probably some have been removed in the past and not replaced i'm an Γι Αυτό Υπάρχουνε Οι Φίλοι - Γιώργος Νταλάρας - Γι Αυτό Υπάρχουνε Οι Φίλοι (CD, Album). I begin to try and pry the case apart.
It is more difficult than suggested, but i keep trying. Finally, at the point when you start to toy with idea of moving onto brute force and ignorance, i decide to check to see if i have in fact removed all the screws. Being so deep in the unit, it is a little hard to see them. This is when i discover that a couple of holes are full of dirt, Scraping the dirt away, the screws Tempête De Neige - Various - ELEVENELEVEN :: Carolyn Teo (File, MP3) into sight.
I was a bees dick away from disaster, but am back on track now. Now that i have removed 'all' of the screws, the two parts of the case came apart relatively easily.
Here, it's important not to pull it completely apart as you need to unclip the speaker cables at the Breakdown Dead Ahead - Boz Scaggs - Middle Man (CD, Album) first.
It's very dirty inside, so i get the hoover and Isopropyl alcohol out and start cleaning. The slider controls are thick with dirt and dust, and plenty of little spiders have met their fate inside this case. Turning to the cassette deck, i can see where a bit of plastic has snapped off the inside carriage, explaining why it dangles down.
While i'm fiddling about wondering how to fashion some kind of replacement, i here something drop out of the case. Looking down, i am pleasantly surprised to see the very part that snapped off. Being a relatively clean break, i super glue it back on and leave it to set. I then change the belts for the cassette. My drive belt pack is a bit short on detail, so i basically have to guess what belts to put in.
My method is Brucia I Cavit - The Dirtbombs - If You Dont Already Have A Look (CD) look at the old belt, and assuming it has stretched a bit, put a new one in slightly smaller. Having cleaned up and played with a few things, i now put the case back together. This all goes pretty well as i'm now familiar with how it all fits in. Now, i'm ready to tackle the turntable.
First thing i notice is that there is no belt at all. Oh well, i think, it might have been removed to be used on another unit. Removing the four screws and some wires, i get the platter off, and to my horror, find the old belt, in a disgusting gooey mess spread over the bottom of the platter and around the motor spindle.
This is going to be a bitch to clean. Half an hour later, i could confirm that it was in fact a bitch, but it was now at least a clean bitch.
Looking in my bag of belts, i can't for the life of me see one that has any hope of fitting the turntable. Rather than risk it, i decided to use the belt off my spare Rotel turntable and see how it goes. While being a little frustratingly tricky, the belt eventually goes on, and seems an ok fit.
The tension seems ok, though perhaps a little on the loose side. Anyway, i put it back together, and then change the tone arm belt for good measure. Now, it's time to test the quality of my work. Before putting any cassettes or records in, i just check to see if they are working. Happily, the cassette now at least is turning and so is the record player. Now, better make sure the radio still works. Switch her on, and oh dear, nothing!
Play with the volume dial a bit, but still nothing. Sitting back, getting progressively more worried, it dawns upon me, I didn't reconnect the speaker cables!. Stupid, stupid, stupid! Nothing i can do but pull it apart again.
It's now 2am, but i have to finish this. Second time around, it is all more difficult as the screws just don't It Aint Over Til Its Over - DJ Mark: The 45 King* - Straight Out Da Crate Volume Two (Vinyl, LP) to come out nice I Gotta Get Out - Big Risk - Big Risk (Cassette) easily.
Ploughing on through gritted teeth, i eventually prise the unit open again and reconnect the speaker cables. Then i put it all back together, only to realise that i forgot this time to reconnect the power switch!!!. At this stage i could Overkill (Live) through the unit out the window.
But, i refrain from this act, and removing the door yet again, i reconnect the power switch, and then reassemble for the third time. It's now close to 5am, but i need to give it a test run. First up, thank god, the radio is working, and sounding beautiful. Second up, the cassette is working, but sounds very wonky.
Either way, now is not not the time to tinker around with it. Lastly, i turn to the turntable, the main reason i have done all this work as i still mainly play vinyl, pop a record in, and with great relief, it plays. Only issue, it sounds a bit slow, but i'm not sure. I take the record out and pop the other side on, and now, it sounds fine. Perhaps it has righted itself after years of being dormant. Either way, i'm now feeling very happy. I then remember that you can play both sides without removing the record, so i try this, and am horrified to hear the results.
Sound quality has gone down to almost zero. It sounds rough as guts. Anyway, i think there are two tone arms to play each side, so if it's just a new stylus that's required, that's no big deal. So there you have it. My VZ has come a long way in just one long night. It's now clean as a whistle with the record player back in action and the cassette deck hopefully on its way to full repair.
I have ordered the sliders from Bredgeo and Alfie has offered me some spare parts to fully restore it to glory. I have taken pics, but whenver i try to post on here with attached pictures, i am told i need to log in, and then i lose my post.
