Dual Turntable not spinning

I have a Dual CS 505-3 turntable which won't spin when I move the arm acorss the record. Its been a while since its been used and I'm guessing it probably needs cleaning as I can hear the motor going and it tries its best to spin but to no avail!
If this is the case I don't know how and what to clean!
Any ideas ?

    Turn table is not turning, I can hear the engine trying to work but it is not turning.  Took off the top of the turn talbe and it looks like it may be the rubber band but I do not know how to adjust it or put it back.

    Thanks

Hi,
I have the exact same problem with my TT - a PS-X55. It appears that the motor has failed. Too bad, as I was told the replacement motor part is no longer stocked by Sony. For what it's worth - the part number is 154116500.
Let me know if you manage to find some who has the exact part stocked.

The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.

SOURCE: Dual 1228 turntable platter not spinning, the motor will not turn

This particular unit uses an idler wheel to drive the table. Remove the platter and check the rubber wheel. It may be dirty, or just dry and slick. This part may need to be replaced or treated.

SOURCE: sony ps-lx2 turntable clicks when spinning

It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.

If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dual 1009. No audio from the stylus & humming.

I can help with this issue. To keep the platter spinning in manual mode, you have to cue the tonearm up and move it so it is over the record. Then flip the lever to manual. It should stay on in this position. This is a feature and not a bug.

Regarding the audio / humming problem. The Duals had what was known as a muting circuit that engages as the turntable is cycling between rest and play. The fact that you are getting no sound may be an indication that the muting circuit is still engaged. Here are a few things you can try:

1. If the unit was recently shipped, you may need to reset the mechanical function of the turntable. You can do this by locking down the tonearm to the tonearm rest, turning on the power and then flipping the lever for a full automatic cycle. The tonearm will stay fixed to the rest, but the remainder of the mechanical system underneath will be reset to proper positioning (this is detailed in the Dual manual). Of course, this assumes that everthing was OK prior to shipping.

2. Make sure your cartridge is properly mounted with a good stylus, check your tonearm wires (both in the headshell and underneath the turntable and finally, see if you can get underneath the turntable while you run an automatic cycle to see what is going on.

Lastly, if you can't get it going, Check out Bill at www.fixmydual.com He worked on my 1019 and knows them inside and out.

Good Luck,

Jerry

My jensen three speed turntable is not spinning my record


If it is a belt driven model it might have fallen off. If you lift up the turntable matt it should show a hole to view the belt. If the belt is good, it could be that a switch is not engaging when the arm moves out to the record, if it is the type that starts when the arm is placed on the record.

Detrola record player wont spin, even after moving arm to far right.


I suggest you lift up the turntable matt and see if you can see a belt, which has either broke or come off. You might need a new belt!

How do you shift to play records. When I turn to phono on dial it turns the unit off. I have a radio cd player with CR24 turntable


Move the tone arm off the rest on to the record and it will start to spin. There is a switch that turns the player off when the tone arm is on the rest.

The platter on my 15 year old SL-BD22 turntable does not move when I move the tonearm into postion to play a record. Do I need a new motor? If so, where can I find the original equipment, what will it...


Not certain you will need a new motor - yet- !
First since the arm movement turns on the turntable some kind of switch must come into play. These break or move out of poistion, so check that first. The access I suspect will be through the base of the turntable.
As most of these types of turntables use a 12 volt motor, you can attach a 9 volt battery to it's terminals and that should make it spin. If it's dead sluggish or doesnn't spin fast or at all, it's dead. If it does spin then there's something up with the power supply section to it.
