Derek called "My record players gone quiet"
No problem, bring it over...
A lovely Pye Black Box duly arrives..
These are a super player, much better (in my humble opinion) than the Dansette of the same era. This one dates from the early 60's, and is a rare one, as it sports the Garrard 209 deck.
A quick diagnosis, but a fiddly fix as one of the fine wires had broken from the cartridge to the amp, just at the pivot point of the arm.
The deck, for a change, wasn't gummed up with sticky grease, and worked fine.
The audio quality is very respectable indeed.
Here's a quick video.
