Default Repair for Roberts R707 Transistor Radio required

Hello all

I am new to this forum and I am a novice vintage radio fan. collector. Can anyone help, I have a Roberts R707 transistor radio which is cosmetically in v good condition but does not work. It only makes a low hiss. I am looking for any recommendations of where it could be repaired or if anyone would be prepared to do it for me. I have been looking on the internet in my area (North West) and phoned a few places but have drawn a blank. Any help most useful

Chris

Hi Chris,

Not much to go wrong with these really. If you can't find anyone local I have a workshop in Bradford and would be happy to check it out for you if you are happy to post it. No charge for checking it over and quoting.

You may find someone closer, though, but the offer is there if you need it.

Jon.

Hi Jon

No, that would be great, I am happy to post it to you. As I am new on here how do you suggest we proceed, is it by private message.

Regards

Chria

Just tried to PM you Chris, but apparently your inbox is full so it won't send. I'll try again later.

Jon has repaired my Roberts Radio and done an excellent job. I would thoroughly recommend his work and would gladly use him again. Not only did he repair the radio but he did a mini restoration of it. This guy is a honest and a true professional. (something that is V hard to find these days)
