Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a 1970's Philco Console which works fine (except the 8 track player) the only little thing is that the on and off switch stopped working.
I can only turn it off when it's in the middle position - not where it says "off".
Is it ok to use it this way?
Any hope for the 8 track player?
It's a Philco console radio, turntable and 8 track. Model H842GMA, Speakers and everything else still work great.
It sounds like the knob part has has lost grip on the spindle of the switch, due to age. The knob part is designed to pull off (though sometimes they have an allen screw to keep them on) for service. You could try and pull it off! However it could (due to its age) have decayed and so might break up. If you do try to pull it off, turn it to the off position and when you put it back on put the knob pointer at the off point.
However it is safe to operate at the present.
On the 8 track the fixes and myself would need to know more details. Like: does it play, can you put a tape in etc, before giving a verdict.
