to fix a valve record player, especially for an "expert" like my Husband? Well, judging by the ********* coming from him , damn near impossible! It got so bad at one stage he asked me to consider getting someone in to exorcise it as he was convinced it was cursed! As you see it, it works, but my Husband has had to go and lie down in a darkened room until the pain goes away!
(for the technically minded the aggro was caused by lots of loud hum (louder than the record it was playing) complete silence (apart from the hum), the player refusing to play any records and the top panel coming away in his hand (not to mention the lid falling down narrowly missing his fingers!) I'm off to sooth his fevered brow and tell him it will be alright. (well hopefully!!)
