portable record player

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi to all,

I have a Hi Fi vox portable record player of 1962 vintage, it has a garrard deck, 4 speeds and is generally in fair order.

The problem is little or no sound, it has a solid state rectifier which is retuning  245v DC output and this appears to be correct from a article I have just read. I have replaced a new cable from the arm to the tag board this has 4 wires 2 x screen and 2 x signal but the cartridge has only 2 pins so I have used 1 x screen and 1 x signal. I have also replaced the valve (ECL86) which illuminates much better than the old one but I still have no sound, does any one have a circuit diagram for better component recognition of this or similar or any ideas of where I go from here.........much appreciated thanks.

There are probably better forums/places than a headphone site on which to get quality answers to your type of question.

 

I see that this is your first post.  Have you just posted here or are you also asking this at a number of other venues?

Yes I had realised that after I had posted it, I has been reading a vintage record player web site for some answers and this site was sort of linked to it. Sorry about that.

Regards,

Malc.
