I had a similar problem and found that manually moving the arm back and forth along the tube several times "loosened up the mechanics. They get stiff after sitting a long time. B e sure to protect the needle!

I have an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.


Unplug the power to the turntable.

Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.

Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.

Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.

Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.

Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.

Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.

Return the tonearm to its rest.

Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.

Technics SL-10 does not rotate


OK a blast from the past. There is a switch that is in the base which senses that the cover is closed and this unlocks the arm and disk motor can rotate. The reason that the disk rotates when the cover is up is because this allows the disk to spin up to speed before the arm comes down. Once the cover comes down the switch unlocks the arm and the arm then moves this switch also can stop the disk if the arm does not unlock.

I have a problem with a Sansui turntable


Linear tracking tonearms probably don't move much under manual control. It would still help if we knew the model number.

JVC L-E5 Turntable arm will not move to the record.


This turntable is linear tracking, meaning that the tonearm slides from side to side. Inside there is a belt coming off a motor and over to a pulley that will move the tonearm from left to right n right to left. If you feel qualified it can be replaced with moderate from the bottom after removing the bottom cover with the power OFF. the belt can be found here.

Turntable starts playing record middle 1st song


The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.


http://www.vinylengine.com/library/pioneer/pl-570.shtml
on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!

Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.


A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.

Turntable will not turn


This is a fully manual turntable, meaning, the tonearm will not engage a switch that powers up the unit. You have to turn it on. The power switch is towards the rear of the unit, on the top, right at the rear of the tonearm. You'll see a button. Press that button, and your unit should power up.

If it does not power up, then you have a faulty unit. If you bought this new, I would suggest returning it. If it is not new, then either you have a bad fuse, or burned out transformer. The fuse you can replace yourself, but the transformer requires a technician.

Hope this helps.
