Anyone know how to reinstall the hinge/springs in a 2000s Sony Walkman Personal CD Player? Answered
I still use my beloved Sony Walkman (personal cd player ca. early-mid 2000s) with a cassette adapter in my 98 lumina, as well as w/ headphones on long family car trips. Sadly, this past weekend, I dropped it on hardfloor, and while it is otherwise unharmed, the lid and hinge-springs popped off. I was able to remount either just the springs or the lids, but not together. The lid will stay on and allow me to play, but I have to hold it open manually, which is going to be problematic later trying to keep it open to change CDs if driving alone. I know I should probably look at investing in an mp3 player instead, but I want to keep using my otherwise perfectly-good music player. Any suggestions for fixing the spring/hinge setup? Has anyone else ever had this happen?
