    Just purchased a used LP12 and the switch felt a bit vague, no snap to it. However it worked last night. This evening, no red light and no power.
    It's not the mains plug, I know enough to check that.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Having/having had several without this anomaly I will advise option of considering using good good-value Linn specialist.

    I have not heard LP12s sound better than with functioning Valhalla even though I have bought external including Linn PSUs.

    My Lp12 failed a few weeks ago with aloss of drive. The red LED on the switch was out, so I removed the platter to check the belt (which was OK), then removed the belt to feel the drive pulley. This wastwitching periodically.

    Turned out to be a failure of the Valhalla board. Contacted dealer, who fitted one of his stock of recon Valhallas. All OK.

    See if the pulley is twitching. Either way, a call to aLinn dealer or repairer would be a good move.

    Hope this helps.
