Panasonic turntable and dual cassette deck

I was given a Panasonic (i'm not at home at the moment, when i get back tomorrow, i'll figure out the exact model) turntable, dual cassette, and AM/FM combo. When i plug in speakers, 1 speaker doesnt sound as clear as the other, and when i turn the volume down all the way, i can still hear dull, but still loud, music coming from the tape i'm playing. It was really dirty on the outside when i got it(looks great now). Might it being dirty inside cause these issues?

Tommorrow, i will post the exact model number on here.

I'm hoping to make this the stereo i keep in my bedroom, so i'd like to fix this.

Break out the Deoxit and spray it in the pots of the unit,see if that does the trick.These all-in-one units always sacrificed one or more of each of whatever made it a multi-component...either the turntable was crap,the cassette recorder was crap,or the speakers were crap.You take a crap shoot bringing one of these into your audio collection.....oh,did I say the word "crap" enough times?!? Your much better off searching for and purchasing individual components and fine tuning your audio system to perfection that way. Rob

Well it was free, and i think it'll be decent. Good enough for my room, but i'll still have the expensive 1 in my game/music room. Figured if i got a decent set of speakers for it, i think it'll be good. From what i heard, it sounds good in the speaker that was 100% running. Tape especially

I am not that convinced, Pannies of that type and vintage usually have electronic switches (like 4066 or equivalents). These, in particular the low grade ones used in the cheap gear or combos, do not have good separations anyway (one could hear this also when new).

Without a look at the system is hard to blindly guess, anything from shortcuts due to corrosion and rain to leaked capacitors.

It would be cheaper to simply buy another cheapo boombox/ portable with a turntable on it than to buy the soldering equipment and parts and fix that one.

My point was it would be cheaper to buy another one than to fix that one. Keep it as is until you can get better components (I wouldn't recommend heavy usage of the turntable though, as most combo units have super cheap needles which can wear out your records quicker than normal).

Aye. The stylus in that unit is the same one used in Panasonic boomboxes. The modern diamond/cantilever replacement is a bit better than the original, if you decide to replace it.
