My grandchildren found an old fisher price record player in my loft and are desperate to play with it. You wind it up and switch it on then put the arm onto the record which plays in a music box type way. It tries to turn but it doesn't seem to have the power to go quick enough to play anything. Is there anyone out there who is good with things like this or can recommend anyone. I am happy to pay a small amount to get it fixed - I would have bought a new one but they don't make them anymore and they are going for a ridiculous price on ebay.

If you can get to the inside of it? try spaying some WD 40 on the clockwork mechanism it probably is either dry or dirty.

I could look at it if the WD does not work.

That would be very kind - I did get it open after a big struggle and sprayed everywhere but it didnt go a lot faster. The little motor moves around but must not have enough ooomph to make the record go fast enough.

email your phone number (better than leaving it on this site) and I'll ring you tonight to see when it is convenient.
