Hello...my first post here
I recently picked up a 1225 "project" at a "project" price. As luck would have it operates flawlessly (almost). Mainly some cosmetic issues to address. Auto cueing and return/shut off work great and it even drops the disk with the multi record spindle. But the Manuel cueing is a problem (of all things..)
Basically when I try to move the arm across the record it won't budge from the "start" position above the record. If I gently push, the speed selector will shift to 45, but even then the arm will only go to the 45 "start" position. Only way I can free up the arm is to lower it to the record for a few revolutions then lift. After that I can move the arm to any position.
I have read the manual and don't think I am doing anything out of order.. Seems like something is binding up... any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advance
