My local electronics repair place told me that they could not get the part they needed. The following is all the info off of the part. It was purchased from Sears in the mid to late sixties. There is almost no sound with volume turned to max.
RED 40 MFD 150 WV
BLU 20 MFD 150 WV
Yel 20 MFD 25 WV
BLK COM NEG
FOR 85* C OPER
Can you help?
If the record player has a very low volume output, it could very well be the tubes that need to be changed. (tubes are light bulbs inside your player) There should be two of them, one for each speaker. Just take the number on your tubes and search for it on e-bay....they are fairly cheap (10$ each)
Since you said that it was purchased in the mid 60's I assume that the speakers are powered by tubes....transistors came out in the late 60's early 70's for the most part.

Re: record player repair
Let's back up a bit and find out what unit we're talking about. What brand and model is it? Silvertone comes to mind, but we need to be sure. Then there's the model number we need. I'm going to assume that the cartridge has been cleaned and OK?
The parts you need are related to the power supply and amplifier section, and a tech worth his salt can find comparable parts that work. The really big question is; How much do you want to put in this? You could easily be looking at around 150-200 dollars to get this to stand up properly....accordianman

There was a time when I could say "Go to Radio Shack " and they would have all you need for your record player. To answer your questions about the rumbling, that is lack of a ground in the plug, cracked speak, and noise / sound coming out of player is being picked up by needle and coming back out of speaker. Solution: cut the old plug off and replace with 3 prong plug (hardware store). Look on back of record player and see if it has the info (watts and ohms) about speaker. If not, the speaker needs to be removed to get info. You can search online for a replacement speaker or your local guitar center has replacement speakers ( Call first ) P.S. If the record player has a lid, bring it down after you start record, keeps out outside noise.
The belt could be hard to find. but the needle should be easy enough. Most newer record players use a magnetic cartige. These can usually be found at most electronic stores and are standard.
To replace a magnetic cartrige just unscrew the old one from the record player, unhook the plug or four wires from the cartrige, then plug in the new cartrige the same as the old one was removed
and screw it back in. Magnetic cartriges run from 20 bucks to several hundred depending on the
quality. If just toying with the record player get a ceramic or saphire cartrige these are about twenty bucks. To get the best sound quality a diamond stylus is the best these run from 60 dollars to
several hundred. A good diamond stylus should usually cost around a hundred bucks.
As for the belt check around. Local radio company shops , music shops, and electronic repair shops should be able to order one for you. In the odd case their is no belt to be found for the record player. Or perhaps the record player was a tag sale find and not worth spending alot of money on you can "rubber band" it. Your local radio guy won't reccomend this because the record player will not syncronize as well and the rubber will wear out fast. The secret is finding the right combination of rubber bands you want enough tension to make the record player work but no so much as to bend the small wheel on the motor.
Your DVD can be checked at any service cent re you have within your city limits but make sure that you re told of the fault, quality of the spare, as philips spares are sometimes difficult to acquire.
Please post your complaints to the following link: www.india.philips.com/about/companycontacts/???servicecentres/???index.page IF THE OPTICAL HEAD WAS CHANGED EARLIER TRY TO GET WARRANTY FOR WORK, ESTIMATE AND DECIDE WITH THE COST OF A NEW SET OF DIFFERENT MAKE..
I have the same problem on a DMR-EX85EB DVD Recorder, and the local approved repair tecnician told me I had to replace the DVD drive. The cost was in the region of £200, unless your machine is still under guarantee.

There are not any outside of Philadelphia and a few scattered places. It is simply not cost effective - it would cost more to replace the screen than to buy a new Mp3 player (and no one is able to replace the screen outside of Sandisk). Sorry.
Call Sansa to get THEIR price. View eBay to find a reasonable price. It is definitely NOT cost-effective to repair it. Ask your local Geek Squad if they are willing - probably no - minimum $250. If you live in Philadelphia or another major metro, see if they have Mp3 repair servicemen - most places do not because the actual builders/info is in Korean, Japanese, etc, and b/c it is less expensive to replace than to repair.
