I have an old...

I have an old hammond organ (about 40 years old). It has been hardly used and is perfect exterior shape but does not work anymore. the light goes on, indicating something is alive but nothing more, even when putting all the stops down. Where can I get technical help to tell me what is wrong?

Expert's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Bronx, new york

Expert's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Turning it on with the light going on but no sound when prying to play.

Expert's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just a referene to a technician in the location. Or else giving me some steps to take to determine further what the problem might be for me to investigate myself within the organ.

Thank you Ms Glenda for your informative response. I will be contacting the nearest of your references within the week to see what they can offer. One other questions I have, if you have any suggestion is this:Would there be any information somewhere in which I might get some guidelines about checking out some common faults in the organ myself to account for its malfunctioning. I was thinking about sources to access such checking points. I will begin by checking You Tube and internet with the model number. If you have any additional thoughts or knowledge about this let me know.I have checked off your rating which is certainly five star.Edward

sorry, the date on the above should read March 19th, not February 19th.

Hi Edward

I am sorry I did not get the notice that you responded to me, I just saw this this morning.

these companies should be able to advice you about your organ and it not working properly. They should have technicians who can help or direct you to the place that can help you.
