The workshop is in a right state this week as a result of trying to clear out stuff and move some furniture back into the house for a study I am decorating, which should hopefully be finished tomorrow now that I have some more white emulsion paint.
I was working on my Silvercrest/LG TV recorder this evening, which has developed a fault with the DVD recorder part. The hard drive end works fine, which means it is worth trying to repair. The odd thing is that I cleaned out the DVD drive, cleaned the lens on the laser and blew some air round everything and hay presto it started playing a DVD again out in the workshop. 15 minutes later I took it back into the living room and hey un-presto it has gone kaputt again. This is typical. Maybe the house just has bad karma.
I will investigate further.
