  1. Hello - Apologies if this has already been discussed and brought to a close somewhere else - but I am trying to find someone/a site that specializes in iPod classic repairs, as mine has begun to act up and I am still in the population of people who enjoy having all their music on an iPod instead of taking up space on their phone. My device is a 6th Gen 160BG Black model, and the battery life is just starting to really diminish and sometimes songs just stop on their own pretty randomly. I am only using a little over 100GB of the available space, so it is not completely full.
  2. I have a Technics SL-3300 that has a direct drive automatic arm. So you hit the start knob to the right, and it does it's thing - automatically moves the arm, and lowers it onto the record. Here's where the problem comes in. When the needle hits the record, it maybe stays there for a second or two before lifting back up and going back. Is there any way to either fix this or disable it and using it as a manual arm? I would love to be able to do this myself rather than have to take it to a shop and do parts and labor on it. I can provide a video if needed. Thanks for any help.
  3. So I went to the flea market recently and for 10 bucks I could not pass up this ugly/pretty pink Symphonic Model 1159. The guy said it turned, and that was enough for me. So I ran inside to hit up the atm and came back and paid the guy. Took it home, plugged it in, and much to the dismay of my ears, horrible scraping sounds and just general noise, the thing turned. One needle seems to be intact (there's another that flips over?) and the other is trash. I stuck one of my 33's on it that came with it.......drumroll...... no music. I have no idea what I'm doing, I'm 16 and I've never owned one of
  4. Earlier this week I moved apartments, and of course the movers busted my turntable, box marked extremely fragile in bold red. It's a Rega P3. The top of the subplatter spindle, that the platter sits on top, broke off. I found some aftermarket ones and an original on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=291108250146&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en Does anyone know how complicated this is to switch out? It looks like just unscrewing the whole assembly until it comes out. I started to mess with it a little, but it didn't seem to be going a
  5. I apologize because i guarantee that there is already a thread about this. I couldn't find it on a search. Someone link me and i'll delete this. Anyway, in my early days of collecting, I blindly bought a used copy of Dead Kennedys "Give me convenience..." and it has an obvious, significant warp in one spot. I want to fix it. There are so many different opinions on how to do this, and each one always warns the possibility of ruining the record. Thoughts? Thanks, Jon
  6. I have a Dual CS1257 that I paid $100 to repair, but the speed switch was totally busted so it only plays at 33. I have a bunch of 45 stuff I want to be able to play, but I don't want to put any more money into this thing if it's not considered a worthy investment. Any opinions on repairing the Dual vs. picking up something more worthy with the money I don't have?
