I have an old JVC turntable hasn't been used in over 20 years, it was one of the higher quality turntable in its time.It has been well cared for ie:, not stored in garage, it is in the stereo/tv cabinet. My son and a friend of his wanted to try it out. It seems kids have an interest in the "retro" stuff now. One kid even purchase a newly released vinyl record. However when I plugged it in there was no power. Do think it would be something worth trying to have fixed? Maybe just a "fuse". Sorry, I really no nothing about fixing electronics.
