I'd be most grateful if anyone could Help with a problem I'm having with my PT One.
When I set the switch to the 33rpm or 45rpm position nothing happens, the motor doesn't switch on.
How can I get the top panel off to take a look? I've fallen at the first hurdle, as I think the allen bolt holding the selector switch in place is imperial!?
Once the switch is off, any advice as to where to poke around with my multimeter? If I can identify the issue I'm capable of desoldering and resoldering any dodgy components.
I bought the deck in 1989 I think, as an upgrade to my Ariston Q Deck. It has the Alphason HR-100S that I got it with. Unfortunately the Audio Technica AT-37E originally fitted bit the dust.
Later, I bought another TT and put the PT in the loft, then forgot about it. On rediscovering it, I bought a barely used AT-OC9 to put on it for the classic 80's HiFi Choice vibe.
Any ideas how much it would be worth these days? Assuming it can be made to spin again!
(I did have this repaired by someone a while back, for the same issue, but it broke again the day after I got it home. I'll spare the establishment any blushes, but I was very unhappy with the service I had received up until that point and just put the deck in a cupboard, totally hacked off with the time, money and petrol I had wasted.)
