How to fix a Magnavox record player.


It might just need a new belt or a few drops of oil on the motor bearing.
You will have to open it up and check whether the belt has perished, or stretched.

What can I use to replacemy stlus/needle?


You'll need to do an internet search for a compatible Stylus that was made for your record player. It has to match exactly. It doesn't necessarily have to be made by the same maker though, just compatible.
A search using the words "Pioneer replacement stylus" gets you: http://www.needledoctor.com/Contact/Pioneer_2 and many, many more. Try "Sanyo replacement stylus" and you get http://www.styli.co.nz/sanyo.html.
There's lots of them out there for every manufacturer/model.

Better yet, try to look up your stylus part number in your owners manual, if you still have the old one look for a part number on it. Then look it up on EBay or Amazon. It's a lot easier to track one down if you can find the part number of the original part. Since you didn't list what model record player you have you'll just have to start with the manufactures name and start from there. Lots of companies are still out there that sell them. Good luck.
If you need more help let me know. I'll be glad to try and find one for you. I'll need the manufacturer of the record player and the model number.

Looking for operating manual for Fisher MC-3000... i was able to only find a service manual. please advise for where I can dowloading the owners manual, thanks!


I found one on Ebay for $5 and suggest that as the easiest. If you can find a "scanned" version online, the quality of the scan may make it useless. Also, these receivers were pretty standard back in the day so a model number similar to the MC-3000 will likely have the same info you need.

I have an Akai X-1810D unit. When I try to transfer a reel onto a blank 8-track, the end result I get on my 8-track is a lot of flutter. The 8-tracks have new foam pads. I used to transfer a 3 3/4 speed...


take a q-tip, cap full of peroxide (clean 8 trk heads / roller).......... make sure nothing is near 8 trk to cause any kind of vibration.......... have you recorded onto these 8 trk tapes (if so try erasing it by recording blank, no sound onto it then rec your music)

I need to replace a part for my reel-to-reel tape recorder: The machine is Akai Model No. 1722 II, and a friend of mine, a sound man, describes the part that needs replacing like this: A Dual Condenser...


1 Microfarad is easy, you need to specify a voltage rating though. These are easily available from any elextronics parts supplier. There are many on the web. Post the voltage and I'll list a few.
