Magnavox Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi, there.
I checked for that model number in my Magnavox catalogs and could not locate it. I also went ahead and searched - based on the number - on the Sam's Technical Publishing site that carries user and repair manuals - but no luck. However, you can request the manual through the site to see if it is in stock. I don't work for Sam's, so not advertising. It's the site I have used for locating manuals for the many units I have repaired. Where the pros shop for Photofact manuals Quickfact manuals service...

The problem with your 1960s "music centre" turntable is likely to be mechanical - rubber tyres, drive belts, etc. These are less spare parts for your Magnavox unit and more spare parts for the turntable which is likely to have been bought in by Magnavox. Similarly the stylus will be a spare part for the brand and type of cartridge fitted to the tone arm.
Finding a suitable grey-bearded service technician who can remember how to service and repair classic music equipment and is willing to tackle the work and keep the total cost in proportion to the value of the unit will be very difficult or nearly impossible.
If you really can't or don't want to tackle the work yourself I speculate finding a restorer of jukeboxes or a hi-fi enthusiast with a long experience is likely to be more useful...

I don't know but will take a guess - I expect the radio is a vintage am/fm transistor radio. The am antenna is likely to be a ferrite rod tuned directional type that will be inside the cabinet.

The fm antenna might be a single core wire that dangles from the set in the way commonly used by many fm radio-alarm clock-radios. This performs the same function as the single telescopic antenna of portable radios without the cost and similarly is connected internally to the first rf stage. Sometimes due to age, mishandling or ignorance the dangling wire is lost or cut off.

A higher quality table radio (not designed to be portable) is equipped with a facility to connect a 300 ohm balanced antenna, a 75 ohm fm antenna or both.

The 300 ohm type connects to a pair of screws accessible at the rear without removing any covers and is usually an indoor type. The 75 ohm type plugs in with a standard coax plug and could be either an indoor type or an outdoor type.

A matching transformer is available to use a 75 ohm antenna with a 300 ohm input. The 300 ohm type is highly directional in horizontally polarised signal areas and is not always convenient to use.

Use HDMI 2, They make an HDMI switcher/ selector / expander.
They have 3 or 4 inputs, and they are even remote control. Just what you need, another Remote to add to the stack!

The cartridge is marked L & R, The R + and R- cannot touch or you will have no sound from one side of the stereo. The two center wires go to L & R ground and the two outside to the center posts of the L & R plugs. That is the wiring diagram.

Check the balance or fader control and turn it to the left channel and if that doesn't provide quality volume from the left try swapping the speakers.
If there is no improvement there is an amplifier fault...
