    1. My Sony VCR (SLV-798Hf) started eating and damaging my tapes when
    rewinding. Does it sound like some kind of problem I would be able to fix at
    home. I'm not a stranger to electronics but never repaired a VCR before.
    What type of problem would you say it is and what kind of tools would I need
    to fix it. Or does it sound like I would be better off taking my VCR to a
    repair shop.

    2. My Sony Casette-Corder (WM-GX670) wasn't recording for the longest time.
    When play or record button was pressed it would just crunch for a few
    seconds and then stop. I opened it up and right where the contacts for the
    play button is located there was a lot of yellowish goo. I cleaned it out
    with a precision screwdriver and now it seems to be playing without a
    problem. I'm glad I solved the problem but just wondering what that goo was.
    Can't be dirt, maybe some component leaking?

    Thanks in advance

    Just one more question. If some one knows what that substance in my
    walkman/corder was
    that was affecting contacts: how can I clean it out completely? I did pretty
    good job with screwdriver
    but there are still remnants of goo left near the contact which I can't get
    at with the tool. Maybe some kind of solvent will do the job?
  3. A bug crawled in there and got squished?
