Power Supply can be solved, this was 1st info I found about it.
I really like my gyrodec so I think it's worth the effort.
The HR power supply is the upgrade. I found it to be a significant improvement. It was cheaper a few years ago though.
If you want to roll the dice with a used PS, this might work for you:
Best of luck, let us know how it turns out!
boywondr84, sure can, a lot more expensive than just replacing the power supply though. Have you checked which motor you have? Two ways to do this; send Michell Engineering your deck sn and they will tell you. Simpler, look at the motor, if there is an approximate 3cm knurled nut where the drive shaft protrudes from the motor housing, it is a AC Papst synchronous motor, if the spindle simply emerges from the housing, it is a DC motor.
Here is a great article detailing the history of the GyroDec:
@mgattmch Good catch. I didn’t even consider the older Papst power supplies.
@boywondr84 Both of my links above are the newer DC power supplies,
@elliottbnewcombjr posted the link for the QC power supply which I believe is an upgraded Power supply for the older pre 2000(?) Papst AC power supplies. These are considered "vintage" so you can’t buy them new.
I find this reference useful: https://www.angelfire.com/music5/michell_gyrodec/ it may help during assembly.
Let us know how it works out. I’d especially like to know what year it is.
Good luck with the Gyrodec, you’ve got several Gyrodec fans rooting for you!
the power supply is found.... if the Gyro has the Papst motor in AC you have three possibilities:
1) look for the original power supply which is like a mobile phone power supply is the bare minimum
3) look for THE Michell Gyropower QC (quartz control) even more advanced and performing power supply with quartz control and electronic adjustment for 33/45 (basically you don’t need to move the platter belt to go from 33 to 45 rpm.
While if the Gyrodec has the next motor to the Papst which is the CC, you can easily find the simple and advanced original power supplies
