How to Troubleshoot Your Vintage Audio Equipment

If you are a fan of vintage audio, then you know it is inevitable that something will eventually break and you will need to look into vintage audio repair services. However, there are a few things you can do on your own to troubleshoot the problem before you come to us for our repair services. We specialize in vintage audio repair for New Brunswick NJ and the surrounding areas, and we have a few suggestions on what you can do before you give us a call or visit our shop.

Safety First

When you are taking a look at your vintage audio equipment, there are a few safety precautions you should take. You should always take off any jewelry you are wearing, tie back your hair (if you have long hair) and roll up your sleeves. That way, nothing can accidentally make contact with circuitry or conduct current or get caught in any moving parts of your vintage audio equipment.

If you perform any tests on the equipment to see if you can figure out what type of vintage audio repair you need, try to perform as many of these tests as possible with the power off and the equipment totally unplugged. This is an important safety precaution.

Basic Vintage Audio Repair

A lot of the time, when you bring your stereo, turntable or another piece of vintage audio equipment to us for repair, the repairs will be relatively simple.
