Question about Kenwood KD-291RC Turntable

Open Question

Kenwood Turntable Plays OK at start of LP's but then returns to the arm rest approximately 4 minutes before end of record. Also when I try to play 7" singles, the tone arm refuses to connect to record and returns back to arm rest. Turntable also continues to spin after end of record until power is turned off!

There is an adjustment in the postion sensor switch of the tone arm located under the support housing. BE VERY CAREFULL in lifting or fliping the unit over. If you can lock the arm in postion please do so before proceding. There may be some dust in a optical sensor or the postion sensor switch may be loose and just need repostioning to the correct location. If your not technicaly inclinded I suggest a strong blast of air in this area may solve your dilemma, possibilty hair dryer(NO HEAT), air compressor(max 20 to 40psi) or a good seat of lungs.

The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

SOURCE: difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 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 Direct Readout Stylus Pressure 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 on the Direct Readout Stylus Pressure control. Play records.

SOURCE: I have a Kenwood KD12R turntable. How do I set the

The weight should be set to the position recomended by the cartridge maker. Typically 1.5 to 2.5. If you don't know the makers setting, set it at 1.5 and work upwards. The stylus should track nicely in the record groove and not jump. But not too heavy as to cause rumble in the sound. Set the skate control low and again try the record out, if the stylus starts to skate accross the record increase the force. It's a case of experimentation with no fixed rules on these settings. Some records might need adjusments afterwards.

Record player repair


The top arm that swings over the spindle will control the automatic return. Leave the unit off. Swing the overhead holding top arm over and manually load a record. Now switch the top arm over the niddle spindle. Make sure that the switch is set for 7", 10" or 12" (45, 78, or 33). Manually place the tonearm at the start of the record and flip switch to 'play' (not reject or auto). It should play the whole record and automatically eject at the end and then shut off. Leave the arm swung over the middle after you loaded the record. Good luck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I've recently picked up a Pioneer Plx-88z turntable second hand. I know that the player is working ok as putting the arm on the record plays music. The problem is that after a few seconds, no matter what,...


Hi, if it's a second hand device. there must be something wrong with the arm at it's moving axe. if something (dust or broken support) is blocking it, it will return automatically to its rest position to avoid any damage to the fragile and sensible "head"

After an album side is finished, my Thorens TD 185 turntable disc refuses to stop spinning.


Some turntables do not return the arm to the rest. However if it did so previous then something could have broken or become out of place underneath the turntable. The only way to check is look under the turntable by removing the base and looking for signs of damage.

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

Aiwa turntable px-e860: Hi, I've inherited this timetable from a friend and it's worked fine until recently but now here's the problem: if I push start, the arm lifts up, moves to the record...


Hi, I;m not familiar with that exact model however the problem you are describing is commonly caused by the automatic operation at some point not being allowed to complete its full operation. Ie the tonearm has been returned manually to its rest position before reaching the end of the record. Try this. With the player not powered up lift the tonearm across to the record run off groove and sit it there. You may feel some resistance which is normal as the mech has to eswt itself. Now turn on the power and turntable. The arm should automatically return from there to its rest. Try auto operation after that. Let me know how you go. Cheers John. styluscity@gmail.com

Record will not play to end.


There is a mechanism underneath the deck which senses "end of record". This is operating too early and will require adjustment.
