Services Needed CD disc changer not working!

We recently moved our Mini HiFi system from the lounge into the dining room and since then when we try to play any CDs we get “Mechan Error” message on the display.

Having googled the problem it appears moving a system can cause these problems sometimes.

We can open the door (there are no CDs stuck inside) but the actual disc player won’t turn at all.

We have a Sony model, 3 CD changer.  All other parts on the system, ie radio and tape decks, appear to be working OK.

Is there anyone out there in Digame land that used to (or still does) fix systems and could possibly help?

Replies to: tlv _ ford @ yahoo. co. uk  (no spaces!)

We live in Canillas de Albaida.

Thank you!



Recommendation – New Kitchen
We wanted to say a big thank you to Jorge and his team at Sun Kitchens in Torre del Mar.
We were fortunate enough to have seen a recommendation for them on another site and are so glad we did. Jorge was also able to introduce us to other Spanish tradesmen to complete work for us.

Our kitchen and our tiling looks fantastic, the cost was very competitive, everything was done on time and the job was clean and tidy.

Jorge speaks excellent English and we can wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone needing work doing in the new year.
Sun Kitchen Contact details:653634633. jorgechica29 @ gmail.com.
Many thanks Julia and Roy



Recommendation – Hidro Water 

hidro-waterI can recommend Hidro water, protection filter for washing and dishwashers.

Its action reduces the formation of scale in the pipes and on the heating coils increasing thus the lifetime of the electrical appliance .

Furthermore due to the consequent reduction of water hardness the washed clothes will have a softer touch.

For more information contact,  email –   pacofonta69 @ hotmail.com



Recommendation – Dental Technician

I can highly recommend Graham in Torrox, he only has a small workshop but works for many local dentists. He does a great job, will work to your specifications, is very discreet and a thoroughly nice man.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
