    PL 4000 joystick

    I'm starting to recap this 4000 and I noticed the joystick doesn't easily move. I didn't want to force it . Is fadder lube the best this control . I have some other with silicone additive . Please advise , thanks

    I'm very curious about any tech item
    -Replace the rear connectors !
    -Caps must be 50 V / 63 V instead 35 V , expecially 1 and 2,2 uF.
    -Clean very well switches using the slots on the rear side ;
    you must disassembly the front panel to reach them .
    I and my hifi guru restored two PL 4000 and one PL 1000.
    Ciao
