I have a Sony PS-X50 Direct Drive Turntable that has power but it appears the Start/Stop button doesn't want to work anymore. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do to fix this? Would it be something as simple as replacing the button or could it be either the wiring or the circuit board that is having a problem. Any help would be greatly apprecated. BTW, I purchased this new in the late 1970's and it worked the last time I tried to use it, but that was several years ago. Thanks.
Old switches and controls get a layer of oxide that impedes conductivity. A good contact cleaner, such as Deoxit 5, Richardsons, or MG usually cleans them pretty well. It must get to the insides of the controls.

Did you get it inside the controls that are behind the knobs? I do mean inside.
