Default Radio/record player repairs in Manchester area?

I have met some great repair people through this site, but my big problem now is that I do not have a car and this makes it IMPOSSIBLE to reach some places where some repair guys live, I am looking for a person to repair a record player or radio within public transport area of Manchester, is there anyone out there? I have a HMV model 2030 record player that needs looking at, was working fine but now just wont come on at all. thanks Bushvhf

Just to close off this thread...

I repaired the HMV record player.
Transistor amp with AD161/162 germanium output transistors.
No problems with the amplifier, capacitors good.

Two faults existed:
1. Rotary power on/off switch was faulty. The toggle action was sticking so the control could be rotated but the contacts did not make. Applying IPA or meths corrected it only until the solvent evaporated then the problem returned. Might have been repairable with switch cleaner etc... Decided to purchase and fit a new switch rather than risk any poor contact / arcing in the old switch.

2. Cartridge had been removed however two of the 4 wires had broken off at the crimp. Straightforward repair.

Removed some dents from the aluminium bezel
Also corrected the mains plug fuse - fitted a 3A one.

Mods please close this one - thanks
Best Regards
Chris
