It wasn't much of a repair. What are the odds? I have no idea. It was a combination of a styrofoam peanut getting throught the VHS door, my putting it on its side, and the luck of airflow. Like I said, it worked fine for two and a half weeks prior to this. (Now that I think about it, I was darn lucky I didn't shove a tape into that VHS drive. There was more then one styrofoam peanut in there.) I wasn't even aware that the EH75 had any sensing circuitry that would be able to detect a stuck fan. Very few of my other electronic devices have such a detector. At the time, I asked what your aversion to J&R was. I like B&H, but not mroe than J&R, so why the preference, and why to such an extent that you would refuse to purchase a used item from J&R? I am just a little confused. Do you know something about them that I don't? If I see another one, I'll be sure to alert you. J&R is listing the 513 and 515 as discontinued, not just out of stock. They only have the EH59 as a DVD recorder with an HDD. B&H now has free shipping for the EH69. BTW, The content that was in the EH57s HDD: I successfully copied it to DVD media. The jammed fan had no lasting effects.
That explains it. Now I understand. Probably a good policy as well.
