Nice, used this site to fix my dads old record player when he gave it to me, had to figure out why the platter wouldnt come off and a manual on there showed that I needed to take an unseen screw out to lift it out

You’re probably going to need to b more specific. I bet more than half the cats on here have cracked open a piece of hardware at some point to upgrade or attempt a fix.

Personally, I feel I’m at the point where I need to learn how to solder a circuit board. 1 of my 808s has a fader that no longer works... plus I want to unlock the secret of changing out pads on a MC-505 or Rm1x-type unit. The plastic ones.

ok yeah that aint gonna be me. the most ive done is resoldered a new rca wires out of my turntable, the other ones had a break in the middle of the wire.
a thing that does help thou is getting a battery reader and switching it to a circuit testing mode, just to make sure if its actually the button itself or if its something else, ive saved myself lots of broken electronics by finding that just one thing had the solder dry up or break off cause of a loose button or line out, and I just had to resolder it back on.
