Console repairs

I’m not able to take any console repairs in my shop at present. I’m very sorry — I wish this was not the case.

If your console works fine except for the turntable component, I may be able to work on the turntable if you can remove it from the console and bring it to me.

First things first — test the radio (and/or the tape player if it has one of those). We mostly want to know if the console is producing sound out of both speakers. This means that both channels on the amplifier are working.

Once that’s established, shoot me an email with a picture of the record player and a description of the symptoms. If it’s something I can take on, I’ll send you instructions on how to remove the changer. It requires a few common tools, but it’s not a difficult operation.

Please keep in mind that repairs for console turntables are a “best effort” service. Some of the mechanisms are quite complex. I try to get them 100% functional, but often poor storage or excessive use makes that difficult.
