From submitter azgli: The speaker system at a friend's party was missing a proprietary 13-wire cable between the main unit and the speaker controller. This was my solution to the problem - 13 individual wires insulated with Scotch tape! More Scotch tape kept them from shorting when the sub started rattling things around.
The Antennae snapped off of our radio at work. We fixed it at first by putting a metal scraper on top, but when we needed to use it, the music was gone. I put the fork in the hole. Now it works almost as good as before!
