Default Re: Murphy A855g Record Player - Intermittent power issue.

Just to clarify something that I forgot in the above post.

The inconsistency is that the OP says that a 'hum' can be heard from the speaker under the fault condition, yet no indicator lamp illumination and no deck operation. I'm wondering if the 'hum' isn't actually from the speaker but is actually the transformer itself buzzing due to being under extreme load due to the fault condition - but then why is the deck not functioning...guessing that by not functioning we're talking about 'mechanically' here and not it's audio output?
