Technics Help with parts

I need volume potentiometer for technics SU-V505-EC, or replacement/substitution and service manual. Pls advice.

Re: Technics Help with parts

if the control is scratchy or cutting in and out, you could try spraying it with an appropriate cleaner, believe it or not, only a small squirt of WD40 will bring most of those old volume controls back to life

DO NOT use WD-40 on controls. It can ruin them. Use Deoxit D-5. You can get it at Radio Shack or on eBay.

Agreed.
MG Chemicals "Nu-Trol" is another good one. And on switches, "Electrosolve". Don't get them backwards ;-)
