You know... it really does sound like BentleyGT09 is on the meth or a relative of OCD4U. Nobody should need a damn flow chart for every deal Bentley does. :no:

Well, here it is... I think this is all my communication with Bentlygt09. I may have missed one or two on my phone, I was having email problems with my phone and I had to change email apps at some point in the process.

Only other way is to pay my paypal directly and leave an address as a note. I have every other part accept front case that holds unit it was damaged during shipping.

RECEIVED PM FROM SKIPPY
[quote][quote name="skippy1969"]Well I got the M70 parts today.
It's not good news though.......
First off the cassette drive.
The stop button was bent "see photo" so I though no biggie I just bent it straight and put it in the M70 and fired it up.
it plays fast forwards and rewinds fine,but the stop button cannot be pressed while playing so what ever bent the stop button must have damaged something inside the deck itself like a linkage or something. :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:
I dont see anything obvious.......
To make matters worse,the music search doesn't work either. It scans ok but it won't stop at the song so it is just like the deck we already have.......... :annoyed:
There was 5 antennas in there too. I hope they were not supposed to be like the original JVC M70 antennas because they are not.
"See pictures"
So overall the guy lied and said the deck worked 100% and it is worse that the one we have already.
This sucks!
I just thought you would like to know.

Bent stop button.

[quote]Dear 71spud,

I took this from a fully functional unit!! The bottom base was broken so i just dismatled it for parts.The Stop button was not bent and the proof is in the photo!!! You don't bend a part then try to return it saying it was bent!! The best i can do is discount any other needed parts for this unit.

Feb 11, 2011
[quote]Dear bentleygt09,

Oh boy, here we go.... right with the attitude huh? I do NOT appreciate your accusations. This is how it was received. Period. It was either this way when you sent it, or it happened in transit. Either way, stop button damage or not, the music search function didn't work either. I had specifically asked you about that and you said it worked. It doesn't, so I am returning it within your 3 day window for a FULL refund. I also don't appreciate getting charged $31.48 shipping for what cost you only $11.65 to send. Ebay does not tolerate overcharging for shipping. If you would like to work things out let's do it. Otherwise I will open a case and let ebay sort it out. Too bad, if this deck worked I had planned on working out a deal for some of your other parts too.

- 71spud[/quote]

Feb 11, 2011
[quote]Dear 71spud,

Im not making accusations Your 3 day window was voided when your friend bent the stop button. I will still try to make this right by offering you 1 other part needed for your unit with you just paying shipping. As far as the scan it was working fine when i sent it off.

- bentleygt09[/quote]

Feb 11, 2011
[quote]Dear bentleygt09,

You mean when he tried to FIX the stop button by bending it back? Or are you referring to your accusation that he bent it in the first place? I am confused. If it was never bent in the first place like you claim, and it was not bent in shipping, then do you think he lied about bending it, and then lied about bending it back? Yes, I am sure you would have been much happier had we sent it back the way it was and did nothing. Then you could say we bent it on purpose because we didn't want it or something. Trust me, I wanted it to work or I would have never bought it in the first place. Bottom line, the deck won't STOP and the neither will the music scan. It is entirely possible that it might be the same issue. I also wanted/needed some of the other parts you have too. But until you get passed making baseless accusations that will never happen.

- 71spud[/quote]

Feb 11, 2011
[quote]Dear 71spud,

I pack all items with care. Im sadden that this is going on but i have to hold my ground that the unit was fully functional.It was tested before i put it on eBay and it worked completely!!! I will make another offer to give you 1 item from what i have left. No charge and i will handle shipping!!

- bentleygt09[/quote]

Feb 12, 2011
[quote]Dear 71spud,

Have you figured out what other parts you need? I can send out monday!,

- bentleygt09[/quote]

Feb 12, 2011
[quote]Dear bentleygt09,

Bentleygt09

As you know there are 5 basic components in the M70.

1. The main board and chassis assembly This has the amp circuit cassette power supply,tuner power supply,function switches.
2. The slider board assembly. This has all the sliders on it.
3. The cassette drive assembly. This also has the music scanner attached to it.
4. The tuner assembly.
5. The power supply.

Basically everything except the power supply is assembled to the main chassis and can be removed by taking out a few screws.

I am in need of number (1) (Main Board and Chassis assembly) I would consider this part an even swap for the cassette drive assembly (3)
I also need (2) and I think it is worth about $40. I can send $40 to cover that.

Of course I am assuming everything works as you say. Please pack it with an extra layer of bubble wrap for safe shipping. The cassette damage had to have happened in shipping. I believe the stop button was probably just fine when you sent it. However when my friend (whom I trust 100%) opened it up it was bent. These things happen and I appreciate being able to work towards a civil solution. Hopefully this will get my M70 up and running, minus the music search (this was the only thing wrong with my original deck that I was trying to fix with your part)

Let me know if the parts I described make sense to you and if you agree to the extra $40 for the slider board assembly (my treble slider is shot btw.... that is what I am trying to fix with this. no treble takes the life out of the music, let me tell you)

Regards,

Joel

Feb 13, 2011
[quote]Dear bentleygt09,

Well, you never know... I have as you know issues with major parts of this M70. When they get working other issues may show up, but there is really not much left to go bad. I think the power supply is ok.. and the speakers... but like I say, you never know. I may have an issue with the tuner too, but I won't know that for sure until the main board is in. If you are offering selling me additional parts, how much would you want for "everything you have left" and just what is that list?

- 71spud[/quote]

Feb 13, 2011
[quote]Dear 71spud,

I dont have the knobs or the front body of the unit. I will send the board but it was never tested. All the left over parts but the back has no antennas. I will give you all of them for $100 all in before shipping! I will cancel the ebay parts as soon as i get the payment. Or i can just stick with the original plan. Let me know.

- bentleygt09[/quote]

Feb 13, 2011
[quote]Dear bentleygt09,

So bottom line, how much do I need to pay to get everything you have left, shipping included, including what you were going to ship on Monday? Tested or not, just everything you have, carefully packed to avoid further damage (as-is, no expectations, I hope it works, but it is my gamble)

BTW I have knobs, and a good front so I am OK there anyway.

The back panel is a piece of shiat too,the antenna mounting studs are broken off,so basically it is like al the other M70 backs we already have.

BTW the front of the tape door has fallen off on the Panasonic. Was it this was when you sent it? Old glue is pretty brittle. I can leave it like that or fix it before I send it off. Your choice.

Not counting in the $250 were the 5 antenna which worked out very nicely.... but everything else was a disappointment to be honest.

April 3, 2011
FROM ME
[quote]Yes I received your offer of a refund. I am travelling for work again now and I didn't have time yet to go through what was usable and what wasn't in the parts you sold me. But here goes..... Minus the antenna, which worked out well, I think I spent $250 with you. The deck I bought didnt work as received. I did end up using parts off of it and two others I had and created a one working deck. The poor packing, or lack thereof, of the second batch of parts resulted in the loose power supply damaging both the main board and the tuner board. It cracked them and they are junk now. The back panel you sent was slightly better, slightly, than the two I had so that was used, but the antenna mounts had to be rebuilt. There are some odds and ends like buttons that might have some future value, but that is about it. I am perfectly honest when I say that only 1/3 of what I received had any value whatsoever. This is due almost entirely I assume to shipping damage. I have not forgotten the shippin saga about that batch of parts either.

So what would it take to make me happy? a lot I guess. Starting with you not being paranoid about me, my friend who worked on my M70s, my friend who sold you those straps, and some other guy who I never met, but just happens to live in Wisconsin.

Oh also I spent $12 reshipping that Panasonic for you. BTW I didn't appreciate you forwarding my personal information to your customer just because you thought we were running some sort of scam on you.

Damn, that was a painful read.

Not sure what's so difficult about wrapping each object in bubble-wrap.......I am no "pro wrapper", but letting a power supply rattle around inside a box is pretty lame, if indeed that is what happened.

Personally, I would have walked away after the cassette mechanism fiasco, regardless if the seller had more parts or not. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

Also, there is no way it costs $27 to ship a cassette mechanism.

I know... I told Skippy that I was taking a chance.... but I was getting nowhere getting the parts I needed for him to do his job....

Besides.... I thought it was "fool me once, shame on you... but I will give you a second chance, without recourse, and after leaving positive feedback, and if you fool me the second time as well then I will then post the whole deal on a website" :dunce:

spud... i feel your pain. i keep looking at that pic of the box... is that rust spooge all over it or what is that? i need to stop looking at the pic, it makes me grumpy.

& was "Mr. Panasonic" meant to ridicule me? it was pretty funny, but ive never owned a panasonic... & STILL DONT!!! but now that i think about it i think i bought one couple months ago that i still havent recieved.

on a side note, i heard the 5600 was actually a great sounding box. mayb some day i will hear one IN PERSON.

I just received my RX-7000 today and need room for it. How about $100.00 plus $20 shipping. Hit me up at *********1@aol.com.

Wow!!...this is a mess I wouldn't wish on anyone. Needless to say I will NEVER do business with this Bentley character. That Panasonic looks like a rust bucket and all those JVC parts are broken and he has the nerve to charge money for that crap?...this should be a lesson to us all to beware of who you do business with... :thumbsdown:

CONCLUSION:

got the box finally, was refunded $30 back(even tho we agreed on 35, but whatever) since there were speaker issues that were not in the description... it would only play out of the left side sometimes in line in & tape mode. so i took the box apart & found a loose connection on that speaker, resoldered it, cleaned it all up & it turned out to be a great box after all that drama. just needs a couple levers & knobs to complete it. & that wasnt rust all over as it looks in the before pictures, it was some really hard sticky rust colored krud that came off with hot soapy water.

no prob.

also, the deck door was not broken off. it kinda slides/snaps on rather than how most slide on & off... & spud had snapped it back on before sending it to me. so it was nice to see that wasnt even an issue.

& to add an edit:

have any of you taken out the tweeters & speaker grills on one of these??? cuz holy sh@# is it a pain in the ass... the tweeters are held in by plastic tabs that are melted over where normally screws are. & the melted plastic is part of the front shell, they are like six little plastic rivets that hold the tweeters on, so i had to snap those off & drill my own holes & buy my own screws. & then.... there is more glue on the tabs on the grills than i have ever see on a box(i wish i had taken pics of the glue & the plastic rivets). its a really really hard tacky glue that keeps the bent grill tabs down & i had to use a heat gun to loosen it up because there was so much of it. just a warning to anyone who is considering taking apart a 5600. quite a little project compared to taking out grills & tweeters on other boxes.
