I have a PS-LX500 Sony turntable. It's been stored for a long time. I tried to power it up today and only the 33/45 rpm button works.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Sony PS-LX500 turntable it's probably 20 years old.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I tried to get it running today for the first time in many years... only the power on and the 33/45 buttons light up.
