I remember when my parents had a Ferguson Videostar, with the wired remote control.
If you try to sneak a peek at a video after they’ve gone to bed (I managed to find my Dads stash of, hrum, hrum, educational videos), you’re gonna get found out.
As soon as you hit the fast forward or rewind button, the player sounds like a car starting a wheelspin. 😯
If it doesn’t work, jam a screwdriver in there and jiggle it about.
