Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable

Turning slowly, then stops

I haven't used my turntable too much, but when I bought new vinyls I wanted to listen to them.. Everything was okay.. until...
Turntable started to spin very slowly, then stops, or doesn't start at all... It is not a faulty motor or belt... everything is okay... I am wondering if it's not electronics... There's a some sort of transistor that's heating up and i I think that it might be a resistor connected to it.. Am I thinkin' right?? There's a part number on that transistor C1383 (Q101) but I couldn't find anything about it... I have a technics SL BD-22 turntable, please help! :)
I think that the circuit board (PCB) is used also in BD11 (markings on the board (both BD11 & BD22).

    I have the same problem. My Technics SL-BD22 Turntable was fine and I don't use it very often but when I started to use it recently, it all of a sudden started running very slow and then stopped. I took the belt off of the pulley and it would barly run. I could stop the motor with my finger. I took it off the circuit board and had a guy at work test it for resistance. It was 19.6 Ohms. Then, hooked it up to the circuit board again and all of a sudden, it wanted to start working. Then, a few weeks later, it started acting up again. Does anyone know if there is a way to get a new motor for this turntable? Everything else if fine with it except the motor. Please help if you can.

My turntable was having a similar problem. It started right after I changed the belt. I "fixed" it by playing with the capstan drive wheel--the brass one around which the belt wraps. I pulled up and towards the center of the platten and that fixed it. It would appear that the capstan has a bit of play in it. The belt tension probably keeps this from getting out of place most of the time, but if it does get out of place, the belt won't pull it back into place by itself.

Based on the experiences, it sounds like it's something on the main board. Perhaps one or multiple resistors failing, not allowing the correct current to hit the motor.

Unfortunately, not an easy fix. I would suggest contacting a service center for assistance.

Brand new Denon DP 300F turns extremely slowly.

The turntable should be under warranty still so contact the makers and they should sort it out. Any tampering with it could void any warranty so don't let any unathoriesed person touch it.

If the turntable platter is visibly warped there nothing you can do to correct this, the only option is contact the manufacture and see if they would be willing to supply you with a replacement part at no charge, especially when you have been moving. But I would check your warranty closely, you just might be in luck.

Check the belt path for any foreign material that may be on the pulleys. Without the belt attached, feel for a rough spot(s) while slowly rotating the platter. Same for drive motor. This will often identify the offending part. With a seldom used table, the grease on the table spindle dries out and may need cleaning with a solvent (alcohol) and q-tips. The same for the motor. Then re-lube with a synthetic oil. Be careful that you don't lose any bearings or spacers. This technique has repaired many tt's. Good luck, work slowly and carefully.

your choice of "Vibe" turntable could have not been worse.
Any serious Vinyl collector would not use such a cheap piece of equipment.

Jensen JTA 450 turntable skips?

Try moving the arm up to the end of the vinyl, if it does go till the end of the vinyl then try adjusting your counter weights, a penny will do, if it doesn't go till the end of your vinyl then there's a mechanical problem check any obstruction at the botton of your arm.

Turntable rotating slowly or not at all

First and foremost, are you sure you installed the correct replacement belt, and installed it correctly? Just ruling out the obvious. Now, if you installed the belt correctly, then the only other thing that could cause this is a bad motor. Not an expensive part, but with labor, it might be cheaper to just buy a new one. Figure the part itself is about You will more than likely be able to remove the cartridge/stylus and use it on your new turntable, just make sure the tonearm is the same style as your existing turntable - P-MOUNT Tonearm. If you buy another belt drive, you might even be able to keep the belt you purchased as a back up - might fit! Here is some part info on your turntable: - Belt - Part #SJY90080-3 - $5.99 - Motor - MOTOR, 4 VDC, .2 WATTS - Part #SDMB5E - $19.99 Labor - 30min This is just to give you an idea of what it would cost to replace the motor. I put the belt part # on there, just so you could verify that you bought the correct part. Hope this helps some. - Justin
