This is the TV, DVD player, and VHS player in our bedroom. And yes, we still have VHS tapes. I'm waiting for the next "DVD player" to come out. I know they have Blu-Ray but to me that is just a DVD player tweaked and re-marketed. I'm really hoping for streaming videos to be the final one. That way you don't have to buy more stuff, and you can just store your movies in a queue. So what does this have to do with Drunken repair......(oh look a penny, ADD at its finest)........
Our DVD player has turned into dear Roger Ebert. It would only let us play certain movies. Whatever the DVD player was in the mood for is what we were allowed to watch. Player seemed to like older movies like Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. (Don't even say porn, Annie Jones!) Family guy was out of the question! One day one movie would work and then the next it was off the play list.
So I looked up on line how to clean your DVD player and then operated. My cousin has a saying, "If you are going to pay a repair man make sure it is good and broke." So that was my plan. Anna walked by as I was taking it apart and something along the lines of "rest in pieces." She isn't funny at all.
So here is the problem that I ran into, we had no rubbing alcohol. I thought of Drunk Pam and pulled out the vodka. That was the point where Anna walked off to get her dad(Den's plan the night before was to crush it). Ye of little faith! I knew the vodka would work but was completely shocked when I put it all back together and it stopped being Ebert! Yes, you can clean your DVD player with vodka. And I can now add DVD repair to my resume.
If you decide to venture into the repair world and you break it just remember the bottle is already out!
Thanks for stopping over,
