Denon DP52F tonearm tube is turning freely

I have a Denon DP-52F, purchased used, which now (and suddenly) has a freely turning tonearm tube, which of course completely prohibits play. Is something I can easily remedy, or do I need to bring it into a repair shop? What would cause this "sudden release" of a normally static arm tube. Did something let go, loosen or strip? Thanks very much.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with the motor. It is a disconnect of some sort withing the servo assembly, where the tube connects to the "unseen".

  • Musicseller Sep 14, 2008

    To try to make this more understandable, the arm turns 360 degrees. In other words I cannot ever know if the cartridge is going to be facing down, sideways or straight up in the air. Somehow it needs to be reanchored within the boot assembly.

  • Musicseller Sep 14, 2008

    This should be simple; these are generic answers that I'm not accepting. Sorry...

  • Musicseller Sep 14, 2008

    The tonearm wires are not the problem. They could be fully intact or nonexistant, as the tube ends shortly after it enters the boot, at which point they are on their own. Plus, I have conductivity throughout.

    What on God's good earth has this last post got to do with anything I've mentioned?

  • Musicseller Sep 14, 2008

    Now, that makes sense. Any idea how I might do that? Thanks....

Use the audio technica AT155LC cartridge or as close as you can get, thoroughly clean the vinyl with a clean soft cloth and windex(yes, standard windex)cycle the record once stylus down volume off, look at the stylus tip -see any dirt on the point yes- cut down a sable touch-up brush leave about 1/4 inch above the metal crimp..this will stiffen the bristles ...be careful not to push too hard ...after a while you'll figure it out ..if its real sticky hard to remove or you can't get all of it off then use a little alcohol...after that you won't believe the difference.....df ..about the wires...they come pre-made in a set (small) you replace them color coded one at a time...>before you mount the stylus...df

HI,

One common problem for turntables is frayed or broken tonearm wire. The tonearm wires run the length of the entire arm’s interior, pass through the metal plinth and connect to a wiring post that is screwed onto the inside of the wooden base. The point where the wires pass through the plinth is where damage is most likely, and it comes from decades of rubbing against the edge of the hole in the plinth.

Better take it to a repair shop. There might be loose gears which need to be tighten or replace.

The SL-BD22 turntable's tonearm does not have a headshell. It takes a P-mount (otherwise known as a T4P) cartridge which plugs directly into the end of the arm.

Running VERY slowly


The thing to do is to check the belt first, then look at things like is there a build up of grease dirt anywhere. Clean up the platter make certain no grease or dirt is the works causing it to slow down.
See also that the motor that drives the belt can turn freely and very easy by hand.

Denon DP-7F subweights


I don't know what you are referring to as sub weights. Everything you need is already on the tonearm.First you have to balance the tonearm, then you adjust for stylus pressure and anti-skating. For more information, please my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

My Denon DP-26F tonearm does not return "all" the way when finished playing a record.


Tonearm can be adjusted to travel back to its support. At the base of the tonearm is a small rubber stopper. Remove the stopper and insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot beneath. Turn to the left and then test arm for repositioning correct. Adjust until its correct. John

How do you adjust the tone arm on a Denon DP-47F turntable? Thanks Cosmicharlie


Basically, like almost any other turntable.

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Tracking and Anti-skating controls to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force and anti-skating. Play records.

Turntable speed erratic


It is likely that grease has hardened and as the gears rotate that grease is interfering with normal operation. Take the unit apart and have a look at the drive mechanism, if there is something in the gears you should be able to see it.
