It could be as simple as a dirty laser or, worse, a failing
mechanism. Contact the distributor. They can provide you contact information for an authorized Rega repair facility.
If you budget allows consider upgrading to the Rega Apollo.
Much better than the original or 2000 planet.
Bartokfan, can you ever respond to a question without pushing Cayin?
Narrod, sure, But thought I'd pass on a 'best kept secret". No harm done , right? Or should I demo competition so I can find out I;'m wrong, that the cayin is less than my opinion??? Not sure why my experience counts for so little around here. How many here have resources to demo a cayin 17, w/o buying first? Just passing on what i know based on 30 yrs in this hobby. I know more than how my posts appear. If I say the Cayin is built like a tank, trust me, its the truth.
My original Plant is about eight years old and works perfectly. I would contact the distributor and get it checked out by them. Rega has a great service reputation and will go the extra mile unless the unit looks beat up.
Bartokfan, why do you come into this thread to incite folks? It would be like someone showing up at your wedding and saying to you in front of your new bride, you should have married Mary cause she can cook and blah blah blah much better than person.
