Record player repair

Hi, I've got a 1970 Magnavox stereo console turn table. I need to get it repaired. I'm almost certain the trouble is in the arm, poss. a short or wiring glitch.
Need a las vegas Nv repair person that knows what they're doing.
Any ideas?
thanks

Dear Lynn,
Have you some experience in opening and repairing Electronic equipments? Or does your husband / partner have any experience?
From what you have described, it seems that one of the belts has snapped or become loose.
Unplug the VCR, opem the bottom cover, and check the belts. If any of them is loose, or snapped, replace.

SOURCE: the record player skips

Hi There,
From your description it sounds like there is insufficient weight on the needle end of the pick up arm.

The pickup arm is very delicate in its balance at the "rear arm end" fulcrum.

This weight is adjustable to allow the needle to press on the music track to an exact pressure and it is adjustable so that this pressure does not damage the music track.

There should be a wheel type thingy at the rear end of the pickup arm.

This wheel is usually marked in Grams, and to make the needle end heavier to stop "skipping' you turn the wheel to wards the + sign.
This + sign means more weight on the needle.

There also should be a - sign, and the wheel, when turned in that direction, the weight on the needle is reduced.
You need to be aware that a needle really needs to exist in the cartridge as they can be broken off very easily and if there is no needle present there, then there is no way you will get any music from the turntable.

So check there really is a needle there...use a magnifying glass to see....

If thats OK then place the needle end of the pickup arm on to the record surface and turn the weight wheel until the needle just lifts from the record surtface.
Now that this stage has been received turn the weight wheel in the reverse direction by around 5-7 grams in the heavy + direction.

The needle should now be resting on the records surface and not lifting at all.

It should play like this,,,BUT please ensure the record player is on a perfectly flat surface the
needle wont work on any incline at all...

If you turn the amp on in the phono switch position and carefully hold the needle over the record and touch the needle with your finger you should get a scratchy sound from the speakers.....

This is a basic test to ensure the amplifier and all the wiring is in place and doing its job..
Im Sorry you had a run around from the repair company but some of them are not interested in repair work any more they just want to sell new hardware...
It pays to ask if they are Pepared to repair stuff for you , then get a commitment of a reasonable repair date and time in writing.

If this date and time is exceeded then you dont have to pay for the repairs do you??
As they have missed the service level agreement you had with them for the reapir date and time..

Hope this helps
From
YUBEUT..

I have a Magnavox stereo console: Astrosonic Series. The record player was playing fine until a month ago. The volume is now so low you can hardly hear the record playing


Since the volume of the radio seems to be fine it is doubtful that the amplifier is malfunctioning. I will check the stylus to see that it's fully seated and examine the wires in the tonearm that connect to the cartridge. If they seem okay then I suspect the cartridge may be bad

Stereo Record Player Stopped on Eject


Try rotating the turntable but stop if you encounter a lot of resistance. It should turn easy and the arm should move. If it does your motor might be bad.

Yamaha RX-V657


This will almost certainly be a problem with the power supply, a faulty part. Unless you have experience of repairs to power supplies, due to the high voltages, I suggest you take it to your local authorised Yamaha Repair Centre.

Will not drop 45's


I think the spindle is broke or stuck in some way! if you have another one try that! and if you dont you may be able to use those little plastic adapter thingys and place them on the 45s and try that !
It sounds to me like the spindle is sticking and is pulling the turntable belt and slowing it down!
I would look for a new/used spindle
I think this will fix ya!
