Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable

2 Answers

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.

Where can I sell vinyl records?

Don't expect to get much for them unless they are very rare editions in almost unplayed shape. You can try selling them on EBAY, go to swap markets or flea markets or antique dealers who deal in old radios and record players, or look in your area for used record stores (there are a few still around). Try VinylHunt com Hooking you up with independent record shops since 2006 Find... or Record Stores

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.

Needle jumps on all new vinyl, but plays old records fine. New vinyl plays on other turntables without a problem. Do you have any suggestions?

Adjust the balance force up. This is a counterweight on the back of the arm. For most needles it is 1-2 grams.

Gemini tt-2000 direct drive. Turntable platter is visibly warped, wow unacceptable. Flutter is also bad, piano suddenly has vibrato. What can be done? This is a new unit, bought last year, but because...

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.
