Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a vintage Zenith Stereophonic Hi-Fi console stereo from the early 1960's that works perfectly, but I hear a humming sound when I turn it on and I am trying to find someone who specializes in repairing these units in the NYC/NJ area !!! Any suggestions ???
The hum is a tube that has gone weak or a volume switch that may be going out! Try a TV repair shop in your area, and call first so they can tell you if they are familiar with the old equipment!

A very common problem with vintage turntables is that the old grease on parts of the mechanism underneath gets thick and gummy like varnish and then the parts do not move freely. One must carefully free up gummy parts with WD 40 and relubricate them with 3-In-1 oil. Look for gummy slider or trip mechanism parts that are actuated by tone arm movement.

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"
If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.
Hope it helps
