Newbie in TT needs help in restoring Garrand 2025TC
« on: Feb 14, 2015 at 11:15 AM »
Dear Masters,

Happy V-Day! :)

This is my third post and pardon for asking again for assistance. I just received the package sent by my parents from province. It includes TT unit Garrand 2025TC and some old vinyl records. My parents are confident the unit is working fine but needs some human touch.

Issues/concerns are:
1. Cartridge - sabi ng father ko kaylangan daw palitan which I think true kasi parang wala na ang pin
2. Wirings - maraming putol na wires inside
3. Solid state on the right panel - not sure how this thing works
4. Others (broken wood case, rusty parts/screws and terminals)

My questions:
1. Where can i buy the cartridge? Do i need to get a "brand new" one?
2. I cannot fix this issue alone, can you please advise who to look for to help me out?
3. Is this a TT that comes along with an amplifier?
4. As I want to replace these rusty things, please help advise where to get spare parts

Tried looking for threads that can somehow help with my above concerns but got no luck to find one.
Again, every single advise from you guys is very well appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

You have a nice unit... I think it's not easy to find stylus replacement locally, I suggest to get a new one. But you have to restore the unit back to working condition. If you can post some pics some members to get initial assessments and suggestions.

matrabaho sir ayusin yan. yung console nyan di na gagamitin, yung turntable na lang! malamang replinth na. if the cost of restoring it will be higher than 10th, bili ka na lang ng bagong turntable.

Ganun na nga sir Dodie, turntable na lang isalvage ko. Nag-iisip pa ko kung anong material gamitin ko pang plinth. Di naman siguro aabot ng 10k, 2k daw ang cartridge sabi ni boss Rene, plus 2-3k siguro for the housing

Note: rough estimate lang po ng cartridge yan, not the actual price.

kung ipapagawa mo chief eto mga expense nyan....cleaning, tune up, sna di marewire yung tonearm, phono cable, cart, plinth(most likely 4 to 5 layers of ply para magka mass ng konti.)

ang setback nyan sir eh yung tonearm. its a console turntable kya madaming nasacrifice sa quality ng turntable. unlike yung mga garrard 301 or 401. just dont expect too much from it once restored... gudluck po

Well noted yan sir Dodie. Marami nga kaylangan iconsider for the overall restoration. And of course, first things first, i need to know kung magagawa pa talaga siya. Pa assess ko na lang muna sa gagawa then decide kung itutuloy ko pa. Otherwise, bili na nga lang ako ng bago. Salamat ng marami sa inputs sir. Mabuhay ka!

Malaking trabaho nga to restore or salvage kahit yung turntable lang... Seguro pwede itong long term DIY project or sell for parts na lang ... checked online meron pa available parts for sale pero timing lang yung part na kailangan mo.

As bossing Dodie suggested, get another working model na o bago gaya ng nasabi nyo...
