Platter not spinning


Some turntables only move when you move the arm to the record. If that doesn't work and you have read the set up instructions correctly, as it's new contact the maker or the place you purchased it from. I'm certain they will help.

Califone 1030AV turntable plays slow


The usual cause is a dirty idler wheel. Clean the tire on the idler using alcohol or rubber cleaner. Make sure everything turns easily and check the height adjustment on the idler wheel. You may have to take the motor apart to clean and oil it (if not spinning freely).

Broken volume control on 1430K Califone


There is a mute switch on the headphone jack, inside the unit. If you feel competent, open it up and replace the jack.

Plugged it in and turned it on. Put a record on and moved the needle over. Nothing happened.


Hi.
From your description it sounds as though the drive belt requires replacing. If you are experienced, remove the platter to get the belt out carefully.
If you are not tchnicallly minded, take it to your nearest audio/hifi repair shop. should be no more than £20.00.

I have an old Califone 1400 all records skip new needle


There's not enough pressure to keep the stylus down in the grooves. Increase the weight (on the end of the arm).

Trying to fix an old record player - Califone. It seems to be making a scratchy sound even though I have replaced the needle. It almost sounds like when the two wires from a speaker touch... same...


May be the "winding" on the speaker. If it has got damp at some point(you may not notice any on the casing) the cardboard tube that the coil is wound around swells and "rubs" in the speaker. Thus producing a scratching sound. Try connecting to another speaker, just to test and if it sounds fine then that is what it is.

Adjust pitch on a Califone turntable.


This one is actually fastened from underneath (inside). You need to open the player up and you will see the usual C shaped fastener on a cleat near the motor assembly. Most old direct drive record players have a C pin around the spindle that you can unfasten (pry with a twist) with a screwdriver. Irealize you figured this out yourself, but I'll take the guess work out for someone else... yeah..l you gotta take it apart!

Ya, this is a tough one. If it was on it's side, and not handle properly, something may have come loose and caused some damage inside. If you have absolutely no power, then more than likely the power transformer fried. Not much else in these things that could have caused such an issue. At this point, you have to decide whether it's worth getting repaired, or buying a working used one. They go on ebay for about $30-50, which is much cheaper than getting it repaired. Transformers for these units run around $20-30, then you have to tack on labor, which will be in the 40 min range - that's if its the transformer. But I do understand if it has some personal value, so that is something to consider. Hope this helps some. - Justin DJPROAUDIO
