FERGUSON 3016 MAINS TRANSISTOR 4-SPEED DUAL SPEAKERS MULTI CHANGE RECORD PLAYER

SIMPLE REPAIR REQUIRED

This lovely example of a Ferguson 3016 record player was working perfectly until a couple of months ago. I had played an album and two singles which I had bought on eBay perfectly - lovely sound and loads of volume. Two weeks later I bought another single and went to play it. The difference this time was that all I could hear was a ‘tinny’ sound - no volume - nothing.

On asking around, I was told it was probably the cartridge which had gone, so I looked up on YouTube how to change a cartridge. Simple, I thought (Error #1), until I realised my tone arm was nothing like the one I had seen in the video. Undaunted, I continued and took out a couple of screws, but in the process one of the 4 thin wires from the cartridge to the head snapped. I then decided to loosen the tone arm so I could see the problem much better. Error #2! A spring from under the tone arm dropped into the hole beneath the cluster. It was at this stage I decided to call it a day and leave it to an expert.

I clearly am not that expert, so was not willing to try to strip the wire and solder it back on. I asked around to ascertain whether anyone knew of someone who could repair it, but to no avail. I still have not found anyone to repair it, so consequently I am now reluctantly offering this wonderful machine for repair (I still have the ‘bits’ in a bag).

Please don’t make an offer, as the price asked is the selling price - when fixed it will fetch at least double. This item is for collection only - I don’t want more bits falling off.
