Question about Teac AG-V1050 Receiver
Hello! OK, before you guys laugh hysterically at what I'm playing my records on, I'm just a newbie record collector, and this is all my poor, self employed sorry a** could afford. So, my problem is one day as I was happily listening to records, there was a horrible "static" like sound that sounded as if someone was running their finger over the needle making horrible scratchy sounds. Upon close investigation my husband resoldered the wire that had come loose-thinking it was a simple fix. Well, it worked fine when we tested it then. But the next day I went to slap a record on and it did the exact same thing again--the sound only comes from the left side--which was the wire that had been resoldered. Does this sound like a cartridge prblem, a wire problem or something else entirely? Any info anyone could offer woulf be greatly appreciated, I have spent hours researching troubleshooting, and I can't find a bloody thing. Thanks in advance! Lisa
Pull the Tuner unit out. Get some "DE-OXIT" D-5 @ Guitar center. With the power OFF and the plug pulled out from the wall, spray the De-Oxit into all the pots', and switch contacts. Rotate all the pots 50 or more times, then cycle each switch the same.
This will clean most all of the oxidation that has accumulated on the switch and pot wipers and ensure a clean contact. This may or may not rectify your problem but WILL Eliminate dirty contacts from the troubleshooting list. Also with the unit being OVER 40 years old, the capacitors will more than likely (>90%) be dried out and causing drop outs, opens and shorts in the circuits.
Hope this helps
