Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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 ?
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.

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.

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.
