Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Record player ''ejects'' frequently!

My old ''vintage' stereo with turntable refuses to cooperate! Sound, etc. is great, but it keeps kicking off when trying to play records. I'm sure that this is just a tone-arm adjustment, but I sure can't find it. Can you help?

A very common problem with vintage turntables is that the old grease on parts of the mechanism underneath gets thick and gummy like varnish and then the parts do not move freely. One must carefully free up gummy parts with WD 40 and relubricate them with 3-In-1 oil. Look for gummy slider or trip mechanism parts that are actuated by tone arm movement.

I have a vintage record player sound design model 84520-2 which plays slow and makes a weird noise ? Any suggestions ?

If it is a belt driven model check the belt. Also make certain there is no grease of foreign objects in the mechanism. Often the belt and mechanism can be seen under the turntable matt.

Is there any good record players for under 100 pounds? (UK ONLY)

A brand that has a solid reputation but may be hard to find in your area is technics. I would think you could find one to fit in that price range. You could for sure find a Pioneer in that price range and they are not bad at all. These are vintage, not new, I am talking about but they will outperform most consumer made ones of today.

Why can't I get my turntable to sound right on my

Turn table? You mean like records? lol
The output of record players is different voltage than like cd players, etc...
Does your stereo have input for turntable or are you hooking it up to an extra rca input? I had mine hooked up wrong before and it did same thing.

Vintage turntable turns slow for few minutes then speeds up,,,why

The tubes are only in the audio amp portion of the stereo, and have nothing to do with the motor that turns the turntable.

Most likely it's that the grease on the motor is old and gummy, but becomes less viscous when it warms up.

Home stereo audio problems

Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?
