A few weeks ago, Lauren & I "inherited" this 1995 Sony stereo by sheer luck. The only problem is that it doesn't work.
Exploring our options meticulously, we assumed its batteries were probably dead. Since it was missing an A/C power cable, we opted to just buy a new one. Unfortunately, that did not fix the problem & our generously "gifted" CD player is still on the fritz. Maybe it's karma. Forget karma, we're still out of a stereo & the $7.99 I paid on the cable.
