Philips Gramophone record player repair

I'm in Bangalore, India and have inherited an old Philips Gramophone record player from my grandfather. Everything works except the turn table which spins. I think there's something wrong with the motor. If i rotate the turn table manually, I hear sound and at the right speed, the recording too. Only problem is that the motor stops spinning after the initial start. I'm not able to find anyone to get this repaired as it is quite an obsolete piece of technology. I don't want to get rid of it for sentimental reasons. Someone please lend me advice on where to send it for some good but cheap repair.

    @Guest
    Thanks Buddy but I don't wanna send it outside Bangalore for repairs.

    The Model Number is 533 I guess because that is the Only number I found on the Set.

    AS I PERSONALLY KNOW ABOUT 242 MODEL SO IT IS PRESCRIBED THE NOT TO TOUCH THE SENSOR AS IT ONLY WORKS FOR AUTO STOP. IF MOTOR IS NOT SPINNING THEN THE PROBLEM MAY LIES IN BEL DRIVE OR IN GOVERNOR UNIT. THAT CAN'T BE SOLVED BY ANY UNKNOWN PERSON.

We have a vitage 1930 decca wind-up gramophone record player. When we place the needle on the record it stays in one position and does not track.


With something that old it's either rusted up or full of muck or needs lots of oil and grease to get the parts moving.

Is it possible to conect an gramophone player on a pioneer vsx C300?


you got fiddle with the gramophone by replacing the mechanical winder and diaphragm pickup stylus with the electronic kit to interface with your pioneer amp.
Instead you can buy a electronic record player and play those records. because getting the antique gramophone is next to impossible in my place.
