    I have an LX-PS55 table which does the same thing. Drive motor is running but arm doesn't move unless it is lightly pushed. Hangs up in about 4 or 5 different locations.

    I have the same problem with a Sony PS-LX500. It appears someone has offered a solution but I can't figure out how to find it on this site.

I think it's kind of cheap to ask someone to pay $10 for an answer to one question. Sheesh!
I haven't gotten the answer yet, but a local stereo store pointed me in the right direction. Thanks anyway.

How do I access tone arm belt and motor on a Pioneer PL-L30 turntable?


Try lifting up the turntable mat. You should see a hole. Note how it fits before removing the belt.

My Sony PS-LX520 turntable skips with tone arm not moving


Check the needle, if its not that then you can check the tracking, the relationship between downward weight on the needle and lateral movement across the record. you will need the manual for the instructions
It can be tricky so if you are not sure then consult a good hifi shop or tech.

Hope this helps

My brandnew Songwriter is not playing records properly. When a quarter is placed on the tone arm, it plays fine. Is there an adjustment I can make??? Marilyn

I didn't see the tone arm balance adjustment in the user manual, however that is what needs to be done. At the rear of item #39, on page 10, is there a dial with numbers from 0 to 4 or 5? If so, set the dial to "0" to see if the tone arm will "balance" (like a see saw) If not, the dial assembly (which is a weight) needs to be slid either forward or backwards to achieve balance. After balancing, turn the dial to a number higher than 0 to increase tracking force..keep increasing the tracking force until it stops skipping, but no more than necessairy. To much force causes wear/damage to albums. If there is no tracking force adjustment on the tone arm, I would suggest contacting Crosley @ http://www.crosleyradio.com/Support.aspx
Hope this helps.

Tone arm moves to the middle rather than the beginning


There is 33and 45. that's the size of the record.There should be a level to change from one to the other.

Turntable will not turn (spin)


It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Arm does not track properly but skips across records


Just guessing, but it sounds like you haven't counterbalanced your tone arm.  When a tone arm skips, it's usually because there's too much counter weight on the rear of the tone arm.  You want between 3-5 grams, but first you have to calibrate your tone arm (balance it so you know where zero is).  If you don't know how to do this, refer to the Ion directions called "Tonearm Setup" in the instructions.

NSM Hit120 Jukebox.


there is an opto sensor the gets blocked when the tone arm is at the end of the song. It looks like a black u mounted on a circuit board. The flag that interupts the sensor is on the tone arm. The opto must be dirty so it thinks it's at the end of the song and continues to the unload sequence dispite the tone arm having just started playing.
