Tech 12 repair advice?


TRIBE Member
I'm pleased to say that I just grabbed an old tech 12 for 100$... problem is, it isn't in great condition

I plugged it in, and it spun fine. The next time I plugged it in, the table refused to spin, the lights on the table were flickering a bit, and the target light isn't working right now. I offered the guy 100$ for it, and he took it....so now my job is to try and get it working again.

I'm asking for advice on how to get this thing working like new again. Everything to advice on cleaning the surface of it, to checking if the tonearm is ok, etcetc. Websites, manuals, spec sheets, whatever you can contribute.

I am going to take it in to be repaired eventually, but I want to do as much as I can myself before that happens.

Thanks in advance!
