I know this is a shot in the dark but I have an older Phillips 777 direct drive table that is in need of some help. It was in great shape prior to last Thursday, at which point after Side A of the Cars Greatest Hits, the play and stop buttons won't work. To make this worse, even though when spinning, no noise will come from the unit. This really annoys me because it had been working great and my dad has owned it since new. Just wondering if anyone knew anything I should be looking at. I am a mechanical engineer so I am more than marginally mechanical, but upon taking this sucker apart, there are so many spring related mechanisms I can't figure out what isn't working (every spring is tight and seems to be where it should be). If anyone has had one of these with a similar problem or if anyone can just give me some advice, I would appreciate it.
