It sounds like your idler is slipping. If it is the original one, it most likely needs to be replaced. Contact Gary @ Voice of Music Enthusiasts. If the idler is relatively new, it may just need to be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol.

The changer's cam wheel tread could also be going bad

Well, I think I made it worse, i tried to put some alcohol on the idler wheel, I turned it off but forgot to unplug so when i turned it on its side, there was loud noises, one of the tubes was going bad. even when I put it upright and put the tone arm on its rest, there was more high pitch noises, so i unplugged it. i pulled the damaged tube out..could i have damaged the cartridge? what is damaged now?
Thanks
david

It was the 12VA6 tube that was ruined. does each tube have a capacitor? or does the amp need to be reconstructed?

Sounds like you should seek some in person help...We can only do so much and it sounds like your experience level is low based on your questions. Let us know where you are located, and maybe someone here can hook you up with a local radio guy.

I live in Cincinnati but this is the strangest thing of all. The damaged tube was making all of this high pitched noises even when I rested the tonearm on the rest, it was making the noises and I played a record with the damaged tube and it was very distorted but when I put in a new tube and played that same record, it still sounded distorted but when I played my other records with the new tube, there was no distortion...how can that be. How can a damaged tube ruin a record. the signal doesn't go in that direction, it goes in the opposite direction...any thoughts?

What is the best 12av6 tube for my RCA 45 player


NOS RCA, GE, Sylvania 12AV6s are common and reasonable $ ... any one would be a good choice. On the 45EYs I have, I replace all paper caps and the two section 'lytic. The mica on the volume control should be OK.
