Victrola Operating and Maintenance Instructions
There are no better instructions for the operation and care of a Victor or Victrola than those which were originally provided by the Victor Talking Machine Company. Below you will find a page-by page copy of the original 1920 VV-XI owner's manual, which will give users some insight into the operation and maintenance of most of Victor's products. The vast majority of Victor and Victrola models operate very similarly, although different layouts, designs and motor configurations will be found, based on the model and vintage of the phonograph. Copyrights on this original manual have long since expired, so feel free to print out copies for your use.
Detailed instructions for the use of the "semi-automatic" brake can be found at the end of this page.
