Philips won't stay on

Post by 1968coronet » 08 Feb 2019 15:31

I am taking a look at my buddys Philips model 312. This is a manual TT with electronic touch speed/stop buttons. You touch the appropriate speed, place the tone arm over the record, then push the cueing button. That button then latches in the down position. At the end of the record, the cueing button unlatches, which raises the tone arm, and the platter stops turning. Intermittently, when you touch either of the speed buttons, the platter turns, but as soon as you take your finger off of the button, it stops. I see after doing a search, there is a lot of talk of replacing the LED under the tone arm. Could that be causing this intermittent problem?
