    It's may friends deck which I'm going to have a look at but the symptons were that the pitch control was fluctuating then the platter stopped rotating and now nothing..
    The deck must be roughly 16 years old...

    I don't have it with me but look to strip it down tonight to investigate..
    To me it sounds like the transformer? Is there a way to test this?

    Where do I start?

    Thanks for that, I do actually have a copy at home..
    I look forward to the extra links.....

    I have yet to dismantel the deck yet but I get the feeling it's going to be the transformer..

    Thanks for your help..

    Again cheers for the advice...

    Fixed it..
    realised when I went to remove the platter that the spindle was seized (lack of of and years old club abuse)... So I stripped it down, cleaned it, lubed it and all works well..

    Gave it the clean of it's life with a toothbrush in all the nooks and crannies and now looks like new...
    Just got to re-solder one of the RCA plugs as thats a bit dodgy but then it's back to another 15 years of

    Thanks for your input, it's been a great help...

    Conlclusion: Make sure you keep the spindle lubricated people!!!!

What is the problem. no power at all, or just not spinning?

    A good site about the SL1200 and how to do a setup.

    AND because this beast was well engineered in the days of full documentation, there is a decent looking diagnosis chart in the manual, I would start from there to work out what has gone wrong with the deck. Good luck, hit me back if you have any troubles with it.

I just picked up a JVC r33 receiver. Only three speakers work both left and right B speakers work. And only the left A speaker works. IS there a web site to trouble shoot?

Try one of the speakers that you know works in the left B to see if it works. If it does, then you know you have 1 dud speaker which could be only a broken wire or bad connection. If the good speaker doesn't work, try checking all the connections and balance positions to see if the speaker left B output is actually set correctly.

Speakers quit working-but tryed in another unit n they work--work great on -headphones still-very baffled

There should be a speaker selector switch of button on the front of the receiver, make sure that you have selected one or both of the speaker possibilities.

I'm having trouble finding a remote control that works for a durabrand ht-395 home theater system. I found one but it's $40.00 and that is very expensive for a remote control. Is there something else that...

Although any universal remote will work if your reciever isn't really old, it is always impossible to tell how well they will work or what functions will work. Although a home theatre receiver doesn't have any advanced functions.

The safest thing is always to contact the manufacturer and see if you can get a replacement remote. This is very expensive and not always possible, but it guarantees full functionality.
The next step would be to buy a really cheap universal remote and see if it works, which it should for the home theatre. I would guess you only need power, volume, and perhaps function changing right? If so, a cheap one should work. If that doesn't work, then you are pretty much confined to buying a really expensive one with more functional control in the hopes it will work, but you never can tell until you try it unfortunately. I have an RCA home theatre receiver that is quite old and it's a good thing i still have my remote, because none of my many universal remotes that I have work with it....
