Aiwa lp-3000 restoration
Noob greeting to all!
I recently received an aiwa lp-3000.
I'm currently restoring it. it had a couple of issues. the mount for the turntable motor was broken, but I've fixed that. I also have to replace the spindle(bent), and will do that as soon as possible. the belt on the endless screw needed replacing as well.
I have done all that, but when I put a record on and press play, the arm moves towards the center of the record, but it doesn't drop the arm, and then returns it to it's original position.
any idea what could be wrong on it?
I'm also looking for a new cartridge, any idea where i can find one?
I'm completely new to vinyl, but when I saw the table I fell in love with it, so if there's any help or advice anyone can give me it would be much appreciated!
