You could try Roland Lumby (The Amplifier Clinic) in Salford - 0161 787 8082. He's on Wilton Road, which is opposite Hope Hospital.
He is currently maintaining a high profile on Facebook... you can contact him that way, too.
Replacement record/playback heads are often so expensive that the repair isn't economically viable, but replacement drive belts, mechanical switches and electronics problems are all solveable.
If Roland can't fix it, it's scrap - and that doesn't happen very often.
Suffice it to say, if you send something for repair in the Manchester area, it usually ends up in Roland's workshop - so cut out the middle man!
