Greetings all -

My friend in Bangalore has a Philips turntable F1285, which needs repair. Does anyone know of any reliable turntable repair shops in Bangalore?

Thanks in advance,

Nagaraj

Nice to know Amarbir,

Honestly I had a bad impression about you from some earlier posts by your customers but I'm tending to revise my opinion.

Cheers! :)

I too need a turntable repair shop in bangalore. I was recently given a vintage JVC turntable - JVC JLA-1 free of cost on the one condition that I would never sell it and would take good care of it. I readily accepted given my soft corner for vintage stuff be it automobiles, antiques or electronics. With guidance from members malvai and stevieboy, I figured out that it needs a belt and a new stylus which I have been able to locate online. Before I place the order, I would like to know what else may have gone wrong. According to the owner, it was put into storage in working condition, so in all probability it may just need some cleaning and above mentioned parts.

Any pointers on how to dismantle the platter will also be appreciated as I would love to do a DIY restore.

Thanx in advance:)

Platter can be removed just by lifting it with little force. If old belt even if broken is still there, would be use full to get exact size new belt. Just plug it in and see if motor is running or not. New belts are also available online. can you post close up pics of inside of the TT.

Hi Santhol,

You could try putting some 'nada' or slightly thick elastic band in place of the broken belt to see if it turns. If it doesn't, you'll know that you've got other problems too...

You mean use what the Spanish call "por nada"? I know all about that nada. Oops, I forgot-you were learning Spanish, probably got it right.

Well george there's the regular normal cost nada one can buy online from turntable stores. And there's the por man's nada which is a cheaper alternative. ;)

Thanks Hiten, I was a little worried about applying force because the TT has some kind of a suspension mechanism and I can feel the suspension flexing, don't want to break anything. Member Anilkumar also tried turning the platter to see if it releases at a particular slot, but that also did not work.

Here is the link to the user manual on Vinylengine, have not come across a service manual yet.

I will post detailed pictures this weekend. For now, here is a pic of the TT when I had just received it.

Thanks Steven, to do this, I need to get to the mechanicals beneath the platter:(.

May be the platter is jammed with the spindle. Very risky to apply force. You can use zorrik/WD40 spray to loosen it The suspension mechanism you are referring is I think the whole turntable mechanism (Platter and its surroundings) is resting on springs on wooden base.

That user manual on vinylengine does have a picture of inside of the turntable. it will be helpful.

Hi Santosh

Next time you go for a bath, wrap the TT in a towel instead of yourself (forget your modesty for a while) and tiptoe into the bathroom ... :D

That TT seriously needs a bath. :eek:hyeah:

Use only Johnson baby soap and mild shampoo ... :rolleyes:

Cheers

PS: Wifey might knock on the door suspiciously and ask Who you lathering up with ... but I'll leave that for you to tackle ;)

Member Anilkumar also tried turning the platter to see if it releases at a particular slot, but that also did not work.

Agree to your suggestion but magic does not happen in few minutes only if its a simple case it might be .
