You aren't going to get rid of the smell 100% unless you can clean the player 100%.

Best options are to get some type of cleaner solution and wipe down the entire outside of player and take the top off and wipe the
inside of the metal casing.

Then you have the chip board and parts, I would try to wipe down as much as possible and hope for the best.
Unless you decide to make some type of box to fit the player in with baking soda and let it sit inside said box OR
wash all the inside somehow you won't get rid of the smell 100% but it will mostly be gone.

I haven't had a 99 but I'll buy it too.
Not going to give you mint price since it stinks and will need to be cleaned.

That's one of the best lines in this film and I've even used it in person.

Well I actually had this type of situation YEARS ago.

I contacted both buyers and told them that I would refund shipping but that they should send them BOTH back to me.
This was early on with ebay and they both refused the package so I did't get hit with extra shipping, I then repacked and send them to correct places.

BUT we are dealing with this situation and I feel that Buyer that didn't pay who has product
should be outed by the seller to show that the seller was doing in good faith.

As above broken disc buyer should just go away, they have their refund and nothing, so it goes.

Well buyer B is a thief and I want to know who that is so I don't get ripped off.

I like the option to show how long people have been trying to "sell" these "rare" discs and how many are truly interested in purchasing them rather
than to just "like" said disc or object in their fantasy world.

Wow, I just got back and see that this is over 3 pages.
Guess the "real sellers" are upset about such an idea.

I just want to see how long a disc sits in my shop on LDDB and when I have it listed both here and ebay and when I have to come
here to remove said sold disc.

Its nice to see people who are buying these items from estates and then trying to make 2 bucks off it and how may are truly interested
in buying said items.

Seems like the used media collectards are going away or collecting only because they remember grandpa had them or spoke highly of them.

Lets truly see how many we sell and if its really worth the risk or effort to keep these high pre-crash prices going strong into the next

Yes, the Galaxy Express 999 movie is Discotek, nice pressing but not like the LD, one of the few that I will keep both the LD and DVD.
I know enough of the story since I watched the LD movie many times over the years but don't know enough Japanese to understand it all.

Would love to figure out how to rip the subs off DVDs and then do a genlock thing with those.
Or even a separate TV below a projector to watch the LD and play the ripped DVD subs rather than get a real genlock and computer etc.

Still trying to get time and watch the Macross 7 boxes I picked up, if they aren't my taste I'll put them in my shop for 10 years at a reasonable price :lol:

Have never seen a star trek episode or movie.
Which movie would you recommend me to watch first to see if its for me or not?


:lol: :lol: :lol:

I feel like with anything start with the beginning, if its not your thing still get through it and go onto next series or movies
and then find out if you really like it.

je280 Just want to make sure you see as it took me a few minutes to see.
That block of Kanji after Laserdisc on the top.

I'm sure all the samples have that.

Also wanted to post this for others as its not easy to notice that block of Kanji for non Japanese readers.

Hijacking this to get back to topic.
I think LD prices are pretty much the same, I really don't feel they have gone up in the past 4 or so years.

While I have sold a few high priced pieces on ebay they are Japanese box sets which would have sold in hrs but now it took about 9 months or longer if
memory is correct.

I feel that the market is broken into 3 parts as all collecting markets are.
But this market is the following:
1 people like myself you have all I need and am just enjoying or phasing out.
2 people who keep missing that disc or set for their collection and just finally pull the trigger and pay the high price since they are tired of waiting.
3 new generation of people mid to late 20s who want to collect something and figure this will be fun until the players die on them.

I want your anime discs rein-o. :p
2nd coat of paint is going on floor today of the sunroom to cover over the horrible tan/yellow/other color mix they put down.

Then I can get my bathroom sink out of my living room until we get the plumber over for the upstairs bathroom.

Then I can try to move some stuff around and then hopefully get all the lids off my cases.........

Its really horrible and I've never lived in a workzone before.

From the pictures he posted it sure looks like its running through a computer, I sort of remember those types of glitches when getting bad PCBs on
arcade boards or when the connector wasn't making a clean contact.

You can get a great image from any set as long as its setup right, but computers are a whole nother ball of wax.

Interesting article, he may be right that there is no room to have another format in the home theater.
But this is IF you have bottomless pockets and can afford to do another format for a film you only watched once on the 2 formats you own already.

These are really interesting times we live in for the home theater, its at its peak but then people are at a massive downsizing and others will just stream
what they want to.

This is all nice IF you can afford all these extra monthly subscriptions, if you have decided to go the old skool route then you are better off buying the films you want
on the cheaper formats.
I just bought 6 films on DVD from the bay for 16 bucks with free shipping, most are not on LD or if they are they are more expensive, but I don't have a 4K
setup and refuse to do the Bluray route, bought about 10 titles and sold them all off but one and I'm still listing it on ebay.

My 2 main formats are LD and DVD for personal, monetary and other reasons.
Why should I re-purchase a film that I already own on LD and have only watched once just to own it on bluray and watch it once to compare
and then never watch again for another 10+ years.

I will keep my LD collection as I will watch the titles and still do, and own some rare anime but even if it all comes out tomorrow on 4K I won't
re-purchase any as I'm happy with what I have and the little money I still own.

I may sell half my discs or thin the heard but only due to not really wanting that film anymore.
I never got into LD for Star Wars or 6th Day or End of days, I got into it because of anime first and then film I loved and widescreen and more recently silent films
that are not on DVD or other formats.
I guess if I got into LD for the other reasons I would have gotten rid of the format a long time ago.

Finally I thought R7G image did tend towards the digital look which is no surprise for such a late player, perhaps you should be looking to obtain something on the lines of a CLD-97 or similar for that smoother more analogue kind of image you mention is your preference?

While I never really noticed this I have heard this many times.

And yes, if you are looking for an analog image 97 or even older player like the Tatsuke fave 3030 but that's a single sided player.
You could look for any of the 3070, 3080, CLD-91 or 92 they are older but will give you the best bang for your buck in a certain price
and age range.

Yeah, there are a lot of very rare late release anime sets from Japan that the collectards (copyright-zeta) who will pay stupid prices for
MI:2 but won't pay for a really rare never released again set.

There are a handful of rare discs in my collection and that I've seen where the rights are in limbo or the masters were destroyed like ako but
have never seen a DVD release let alone a bluray release and the only version is on LD and it should be valuable but since its not late or you
can't pick it up at the grocery store on DVD for 2 bucks then its not valuable enough for my collection of highbrow collection of bad blockbusters.

The other day got a chance to see Joker .

It's one of those movies you can respect, though it's a little harder to like, IMO.
The exploration of what causes a lonely, unhinged man to explode, is not my cup of tea.

Who would one recommend it to?
Maybe comic book fans but not for comic book movie fans, particularly younger crowds. And I guess cinephiles will likely be drawn to it. Not for casual moviegoers.

I'd say it's best treated as if this wasn’t of a superhero or supervillain origin at all; that it's just an intimate tale of a dangerously insane man.
While I haven't seen Joker yet I do want to but I'll wait to get it for free from the library.

You have to remember that all film scripts now will be pushed into what sells now, and that's superheroes.

The two come to mind, when I read about Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, they had a script about kids living by themselves after an airplane crash but couldn't figure out an ending and the company wanted to make MM sequel so they blended the stories and made Beyond.

Other was an article that my wife read about the Star Wars juggernaut, they asked with all these new sequels and prequels
where are all the new ideas going to go, they are going to be turned into a Star Wars film rather than getting something new.

Its a business and don't forget that.

For me its the money, I just can't be like laserbite having multiple titles and tossing these films into the cat bin, I'll live with what I have and focus that money into
proper investing or fixing my old house.

I'm just more contempt with what I have or can get cheap enough to enjoy and will live with it.
