    Hi all,

    I did have a look in the search section but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Would any of you be able to recommend a repair shop for my 1210? I bought them off a mate (knowing that one of them need the tone-arm replacing, luckily they came with a new 1 thrown in!) on friday with the intention of fixing it myself. Well, I had a go this weekend and although it seems to look the part now it's still got a few bugs. Sound is only coming through 1 channel (I know this could be due to other things like carts etc) but I really don't trust my soldering ability since it's been about 8 years since i've done Tech at school. Also, i'm finding it hard to get the tone arm tight... it feels wrong.. a bit loose and wobbly and I can't seem to get it any tighter!

    All I wanted to know is what kind of price i'd be looking at to get this done at a more professional standard before I unscrew 50 thousand screws and unsolder all my hard (but shoddy) work!

    any advice would be appreciated! :thumbsup:

    Search on google?

    Email Panasonic or Technics to find approved repair shops close to you?

    Yeah - just thought someone else might have an idea of price before I decide to go down that route.

    I'll be lucky to find anywhere local up here though, I have a feeling this could cost more than I paid for the set.

    You not able to buy the part yourself then find instructions online to do it yourself?
