PL-570 repair, cleaning

Post by David E » 03 Feb 2020 13:50

I have a 70's era 570 in nice condition that plays well in manual only. recently began not stopping platter when tone arm is placed on stand. I am considering disassembly and cleaning of this TT but don't want to risk getting over my head and basketing this.
I am not an audio tech but I am inclined...What would I expect to pay to have a good cleaning done?
Should I stay out of there or is it less daunting than it seems?
I have the manuals and would certainly exhaust my camera for reassembly...
Thanks all.

PL-570 descent position adjustment

OK, cleaning of old grease helped bring this back to life. not a bad job at all.
I now am having trouble with the auto descent position. turning adjustment screw fully counter clockwise leaves the stylus dropping about 1/2 inch in from the start position.
