Turntable arm will not lower - the guide just pushes it back to the off position

Try to do this

1. unplug the turntable
2. raise the arm
3. put it over the record
4. lower it which will not lower you said
5. push the arm to the very end close to the label
6. rotate the turntable by hand and it should take it through the whole return cycle of the arm and lower and finish the motion
7. then plug in and it should come back to normal

Picks record ,clicks twice ,returns record without playing

Mechanism for moving arm over and onto record is fubar. Probably stuck and the clicks you hear are the motor fighting a losing battle and returning arm to rest mount.

Remove stylus and play with arm and simulate turn on cycle to see how it works and where the jam is- fix and then put stylus back in - those little suckers are expensive.

Why does my Memorex 2650MMO turntable shut off after 20 seconds of recording?

The tracking is way off. Start it with the arm cued and see if it does the same thing. If there is no concentric motion moving the needle towards the center post, then the issue is the tracking. There is a sensor that tells when the arm has reached the end of the record.

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"

Tone arm ejects before reaching the end of a record

You need to get a service manual for the turntable and see how to adjust the tonearm. Sometimes there is a screw that needs to be adjusted by the tonearm. It may have a rubber cap covering it.

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.
