OK, I'm not a power audio guy. I got hold of an old turntable/amp/radio combo unit in a thrift store.Turntable is a Garrard 2025TC.Everything works fine EXCEPT the automatic features of the turntable don't function.That is, it won't drop the record, not will the arm return at the end of the record. I can force a record down the spindle by pushing back the detente.
So two questions: (1) what if anything can I do to get the automatic turntable to work? or, if that's too difficult, (2) can I yank out the automatic spindle and just put in a manual spindle?
