Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does anybody know somewhere that does repairs on super tweeters, the brand is Grant.

 

Any assistance would be helpful.

 

Thanks in advance.

Look online for speaker repairers and also spare parts for those tweeters. 

 

If parts are are still available usually the tweeter dome and coil assembly around it can be removed and replaced, otherwise the break in the small wire might be reconnected.

It is a ribbon tweeter and it may  need a replacement ribbon from Grant Fidelity or the Australian agents. Check all the connections and the crossovers for continuity just in case the fault lies elsewhere. Further investigation reveals that the production of this Super tweeter has ceased.

It appears that the Grant Fidelity tweeter uses a  LCY twin ribbon module. These can be obtained from Madisound, you will have to decide which one is the closest to your ST 100.    http://madisound.com/pdf/printcatalog/LCY.pdf

      Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have posted, however I recently purchased a marantz cd5005 cd for $50 in silver which had a laser pick up issue, it wasn't reading any discs, but I purchased it mainly because if this player could be repaired, it would be one of the best bargains for me. 
       
      Note: I didn't take pictures of everything that I did, but hopefully you get what I did. 
       

      Dismantling the player was the player and disc mechanism was the easy part. 
       

      Getting the new laser mech ready for installation. 
       

      As per instructions of most Sanyo laser mechanisms that I know of, the two short circuit contact points outlined in the picture above, out of the box are generally soldered together, once the assembly was done I made sure that the 16 pin ribbon cable was connected first before desoldering the short circuit contact so that it looks like the picture above where you can see two contact points. 
       

       
      Then I just assembled everything back together ready for testing. 
       


      And it's all working well, I used headphones to test the sound and is all working well with no need for further adjustment on the little pot for the laser. 
       

      All put back together ready to play. 
       
      The main problem was that the original laser mech had laser had gone off which I later found out was due a shredded bit of the circuit on the side of the laser mech which tells me that the player had been opened up before. But now that the player is fixed, it will be in my system for many years to come.

      Hi Stereonetters,
       
      Today I purchased for NZD$1 (deemed as E-Waste) two Tascam 112R MK II Cassette Decks - I am looking for someone in NZ that can assess and repair at least one of them. One of decks powers up but when I play a tape it goes into Record Pause Mode. Neither Play, FF or RW is functioning. I contacted Fred at Retrotronics in Auckland but he does not repair he prefers to buy, restore and sell his own equipment which is understandable. I am based in Hamilton New Zealand and the repairer could use parts from one to the other or repair both... after paying out $1 I'm happy to throw some coin into this job could even give one of the decks to the repairer if they want to have one for themselves...as long as I get my one up and going. Parts available from https://tascamninja.com 
       
      Let me know if you a guy or gal up for the job, cheers William.
