Vintage Kenwood Portable Compact Disc Player DPC-55 Ultra Rare 1988 Works
This unit works (please watch the video) but the charging port needs some TLC to work, or needs to be replaced. You have to apply downward pressure on the plug for it to draw power. If you lived during the 80s and 90s, boy are you used to solving this problem. This is a very simple fix that can be solved by bending down the male end (positive) or by having a new port installed. This is an easy repair and the parts are readily available. Personally, I did not fix it (this item came from an estate sale) because either the new owner was going to add it to his collection and not use it, or would be willing to take it in and have it changed out. If you do this, please have the technician take a look at all the capacitors on the PCB (motherboard). The most common failing point for vintage electronics is a swollen capacitor (again a generic part every technician has).
All the features work and I did let the CD play for 40 minutes (yes, I suffered through holding the connector down the whole time) so the laser works fine along with all the other buttons and the headphone jack/line out. I care about my customers deeply and that extends to making sure they get their item as soon as possible. Otherwise, it will be there first thing in the morning. If it is 20 degrees below zero and 3 feet of snow. Refer to the above statement.It will still be at the post office. Unofficially, I will of course take care of any concerns you may have. I pride myself on taking great care of my customers.
I just don't do it officially because I have been burned a couple of times by buyers on some high value items. To be blunt, if you return an item in similar condition to what it was sent out I will take care of it. If it comes back being run over by a steam roller because you work on a road crew and I can tell where you tried to get all the asphalt off with a jackhammer.Thank you for checking out this listing and I hope you have a nice day!!
