    Hm, I don't really expect anyone in here to know, but Ima ask anyway, cuz of pure evilness<IMG SRC="smileys/sticktongue.gif"><br>
    <br>
    If a md refuse to make any sound, except if you tie the cable around it three times, squeeze it and makes sure it's all tight all the time..And you've tried to clean it with technic spirit, heavy liquor (was outta spirit<IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif">) and it STILL does not work.<br>
    <br>
    What more can I do? Anything new I can try, I mean, I really want that thing to work normally, I know it's my own gdam fault that it's not so keen on working anymore... <IMG SRC="smileys/frown.gif"> can you change the Plug-ins to the mdz?
     
  2. I say you buy yourself a nice mp3player with a harddisk....<br>
    <br>
    so your minidisc finally broke?

    Oh, you be sure I've tried so, it's nothing wrong with them. (except that them are falling apart<IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif">) Have tried others also.<br>
    <br>
    It's the...what to call it, outplug. Cuz if i tilt the plugin to the headphones a little to the side while squeezing it forward and tie that cable around, the sound is there for sure.<br>
    Think I need to ty some more heavy liquor maybe.

    Just drink a lot of the heavy liquor and you'll start hearing angels sing... You won't care about your MD at all...<br>

    New one??? Are you totally outta ya freaking mind?? *sighs* No, me and my baby are stuck for life - know I can make it work. Phunny thing is that it just quits everything everytime I mention -wanna open ya up and freaking teeear ya apart. <IMG SRC="smileys/suspect.gif"> <br>
    <br>
    But actually (since this AIN'T any spamthread) What I AAM gonna do, is try some technic spray thingy. Know the sound is bad though (like hell), but it's my MD and it DESERVES to be taken care for. I've been bringing it everywhere with me for ova a year. Not a day goes by without my baby by my side (desperately needing a life).<br>

    try to open it up and see if u can find something wrong with it <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> <br>
    it's a VERY good idea to open up those small devices, u probably wont get it together again <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> <br>
    but then u can think: well, I tried, but it didn't work, but it was still funny to see how my dearest look inside <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> <br><br><i>This message was edited by headshot on 03 May 2002 09:00 AM</i>

    Nah, there's the limit - won't open it up, though it would be bad-assed phunny<IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"> It'd probably come bouncing after me in my sleep and try to strangle me with some loose cable. So, opening it is not even an option *searching for a little screwdriver* or maybe <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> No matter what, Ima go for the more heavyliquor one first.<br>
    <br>
    But - that about a new one...if I'm lucky ima make some money this summer (though I do gotta pay for that putah, and those "lil" ttrips) so...maybe I'll have something left that I don't have to spend elsewhere, then - new MD fo sho. sony mz e909. *sighs happily*<br>

    Actually, I'd not have any use for it cuz it being a NET-md.. got that thing on my stereo, mean quick-timerecording (would take my time figuring out tha real words, but whuteva<IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif">) so it's the same, 4x as fast and got mdlp, so basically I just want that e909 cuz its so darned jiggy *sighs*...<br>

    yeh, i need me a stand alone md deck so I can record faster....<br>
    <br>
    I have to leave my laptop alone and winamp playing some 40 songs when I go to sleep....
     
  18. hmm...<br>
    <br>
    i dunnu...<br>
    but this plugs are small and not made out of titan, so when u use em often the contact can easyly get worse (as i imagine). i mena it doesnt have to be chemicaly bad, can also be physical damadge. (maybe also try to change the oil once.)<br>
    i woudl do it like this...<br>
    open tha thingy, and plug the eardrops with 2 cables to the inside contacts of the plug. if it works fine then, and alcohol doesnt work when u connect the drops ordinary...<br>
    then i would get the shortest cable that at least on one side has a female plug.. cut that end of, and sold (maybe the wrong word, in german its called "loeten") it on the inside contacts, after i removed the original plug.<br>
    <br>
    shure its somehow strange and not so good looking anymore when there comes a cable ot of the thingy, not even in fittin colors, but..<br>
    <br>
    hey it looks crazy <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"> <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"><br>
    and it would work

    oh, I guess it'd work since it's YA who's saying so right??<IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"> To be very honest - ima have a look at it, open it up and take a look around, hehe. Of course I'm gonna be screwed if I can't make it work at ALL afterwards, but with such a recipe that ya made ARP I think I can do it..<IMG SRC="smileys/sticktongue.gif"><br>
    <br>
    Besides, if I open it up, clean that plug in, actually,I got a sixth sense telling me that it's just a little bit twisted that crap inside cuz of some rough treatment..it's been flying across the room quite a "few" times you see. It's actually a freaking miracle that it's still in one piece (not counting the loose parts) *grrr*<br>

    can't remember any receipt of me not working (did i tell ya leets that McGiver is based on a real guy, and thats ..?) and icebird...<br>
    don't listen to all the others, its NOT that my brain is so laggy that i can't remember. it's simply because i never DID figure out anything that didint work <IMG SRC="smileys/knock.gif"> ( <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"> )<br>
    <br>
    cool'u'll try it <IMG SRC="smileys/smile.gif">.<br>
    if (it works)<br>
    . just think on me <IMG SRC="smileys/approve.gif"><br>
    else<br>
    . you realy shouldn't throw it around so often /* ,that's not how to threat youre dearest *stroking my pc softly*<br>
    ouh sorry....<br>
    *stroking the others aswell*<br>
    not you! *looking angry at the upscrewed hd* */<br>
    but 'else' wont happen anyway, noo way<br>
    <br>
    <br>
    yeah then maybe try to twist it back (arg, i should go working for the esa or something, they must miss me already)<br>
    hehe jsut think of a rocket going off with loose cables comming out everywhere on the sides <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"><br>
    ..ouh sorry, the foundation calls me, have to go doing an importatn mission *snipping with fingers* wont take lon.. YAA MUMMM!! i AM comming!!<br>
