My CD Player Prefers Hendrix

Electricladyland_2 I have a Pioneer CD Player in my office that holds 300 CDs. I really like having all of my music collection available instantly.

Three weeks ago it quit working. So I hauled it down to the local electronics repair show. Needed a new motor, they said — $95 for parts and labor. Since the CD Player cost $250 new, I decided to repair it.

Ten days later I picked it up. It worked fine for two days — even sounded better, probably because the lens was cleaned.

But today it just says "No Disc" when I select a CD. Then it returns to disk 3, which is Electric Ladyland by Jimi Hendrix. Plays it fine.

I know Jimi continues to be widely appreciated, but this is surprising.
