Luxman PD 121 truntable strobe

Bob Petroff
I was in the process of having a new arm put into my "old" Luxman when the tech informed me that the strobe no longer worked. He also informed me that he had no idea as to how to go about fixing the strobe. There did not seem to be anyway to get at it. Is there any help out there? Thanks


I have the same table. My strobe light did not work but when I lefted out the clear plasic cover I was able to access it and move it around. The cnnection may be dirty or loose. In my case just moving the bulb around resulted in it working. It is, as you know, hard to see it in a lighted situation. Hope this helps. Larry
