So, a short story. Recently my Dad passed away. He left me a wonderful Garrard turntable which I grew up with. He built the turntable & spent much money on it over the years updating & improving it. Vinyl sounds wonderful on it. However, I recently set it up in my home. I was very careful with the wiring. Then disaster, I turned it on & sparks flew plus it tripped out the house lights. Looking inside the turntable I can see that I've been very unlucky in that a earth wire had come undone. I have now reconnected it but alas I cannot get power to the turntable so something else has failed.
This is where I struggle, the turntable is a mass of wires way beyond my knowledge. I can see a brown wire that is not connected but I have no idea what it should be attached to. To be honest it could be something else, I have no idea. Hifi shops are few and far between nowadays so I'm at a loss and looking for any advice/help from anyone on this forum. I would be very grateful. I have taken photos of the underside of the turntable, not sure if I can post photos on this forum. Anyway any help would be appreciated, I`m desperate to fix it. Thank you to anyway who reads this.
