Re: Harman Kardon TA 600

I have this unit in my bedroom. Sounds great, but I have trouble with the volume control - static / distortion when adjusting. I would like to remedy this somehow. Either by cleaning the control with an approved cleaner or replacing it. I see you restored this unit. Do you have suggested part provider?

Thank you,
Bill

By the way - it looks beautiful.

Re: Harman Kardon TA 600

Hello Bill,
as far as I have understood you have problems with the volume control potentiometer. Most probably it is oxidized. Dismantle the woodcase and inject electronic contact cleaner in the little holes of the potentiometer or some drops of vaseline oil with a seryngue and move several times the volume control. This operation whould be done for all potentiometers (volume, tone, balance, bass, trebble...)
Good luck
Charles

Thanks Charles, used some Deoxit on the on the pots, specifically the volume. It corrected the problem.
