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.

Hope this helps you....

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

Repair a Califone 1430K record player plug & speaker

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 recorder will not eject disc.I have taken it to various places and have been told parts are no longer available. Can the recorder be repaired?

You're best bet is to find an identical one on eBay with a working disc carrier, then you can take the best of the two to get one working unit.

Cs 7400 needle and belt

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.

Model DA-3826 The CD player side of the unit does not work, but the recorder side works fine. Who does repairs on these units?


electronic engineers/repairs will are the ones that would help to fix your player.

I would not know where you can find them because I am sure we don't stay in the same location.

I would advice that you search for local electronic repairer within your area or if you can locate the store of the maker/producer of your Player so that the repairs can be carried out.

Take care.

Cracked Screen

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.

Broken screen

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.
