Philco Record Player Issue
I recently purchased a used Philco record player (exactly like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Philco-Turntable-Record-Player-Cassette-CD-Player-841-205-Music-System-/392237023484
) but I cannot get a record to play.
The main problem I'm having is that I simply can't get the record to rotate. The stylus/needle and speakers are working fine, as I carefully, quickly tested them by placing the needle on the record and manually rotating the record, which produced some sound.
The steps I take were:
Place the record on the turntable
Switch the function dial to Phono
Turn the unit on via the volume dial
--At this point, the record should be rotating, right?--
I opened up the record player from the bottom and i noticed some pieces might've been broken off, but I'm not sure how or where to intact them as they've already fallen apart.
Any one have any experience with this specific record player? Or any general rule-of-thumb record player tips?
