Okay Jeff, let me know when you feel like selling it and we'll talk. Also Steve, I would spray some of this volume tuner cleaner on your hand and see if it drys really fast and see if it feels sludgy. From what I understand, it's supposed to dry really fast. The crap that I bought didn't dry at all and I still can feel gunk in there. I have a feeling it had been there for quite some time so maybe this stuff has a shelf life? Try shaking it up before you use it. I am quite saddened at the lack of technical knowledge at Radio Shack these days as when I walked in there the girl in there didn't know what Tuner Cleaner was, she thought I wanted compressed air. I'd try using Compressed air in the volume slot before you try squirting tuner cleaner in there.

Subject: Need a recorder

I would like to start podcasting again but I need a recorder. I had an
Archos Ondio but it recently bit the dust. I had a weird problem where the
Ondio would not work unless I blew into the card slot and then tried hitting
the power button as I did that to get it started. I had a suggestion that I
should open up the recorder and clean it. So I got some tuner cleaner and
blasted it out. The stuff I bought from Radio Shack was nasty and sludgy and
now there is all sorts of gunk in my recorder. It worked to some degree
before but now it's completely dead. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in donating or selling me
something so I can do more podcasts. I am going to try and do some in-studio
only podcasts for awhile and see if I can't get some action going on the
feed again. If you want to subscribe to my currently dead podcast, it's at and you should see some activity
on it pretty soon. I hope someone is going to buy a DS-50 so that they have
a surplus recorder laying around and wants to part with it! LOL
