Actually, I don't think it is on the neck boards..and as i begin to go through the whole logic of figuring it out... I realize it is already covered ground...and that I agreed to leave it alone if Mike was going to pursue it as a 'fix' involving recompensense. So I left the speculation 'off' the forum.
The fact that the Sony engineers seem to not have been able to figure this out..jsut boggles my mind. Or, conversely.. it could be 'planned obselesence', that was a happenstance kind of thing. The problem appears. and is conveniently left without an answer. A legitimate problem rearing it's head, that somehow, does not get fixed. Like Corvairs, for example :D Ok. Bad comparison.
I mean, hell, given some grunt work and time, I think I could have managed to figure it out. And I'm pretty damned far from being an engineer.
