Default How to fix stuck tuning dial...

The tuning indicator on my Nikko NA-550 is stuck. Spinning the weighted knob does the job but the indicator does not move at all so there must be a broken wire or a disconnect somewhere.

Most common fix?

Thank You!

It's a simple mechanical arrangement. Take off the cover and look at it. If it's the usual pointer that doesn't move, it's slipping on the cord. A dab of glue or pinch of the clip will do it.

The cord could be stretched too.
