Assuming it does not need repair, you should be able to slide cueing lever to the right (raising arm), then place over the record and the platter should start turning. Just slide cueing to left and needle should gently drop on the record. Just press stop button to return the arm and platter should stop/turn off.
Every answer here is wrong. Just plain wrong. It's electronic cueing via solenoid control. There are no cams. levers, or any sort of automation, except for the auto lift on the lead out grove. Voltages to the solenoid must be checked. Capacitors that frequently go on these models must also be checked. If you can live without cueing, disconnect the cueing cable (much like a bicycle brake cable) and your cueing will set to off until you can sort it out.
Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com
most turntables actually only dampen during automatic play and return (eject) not when manually manipulating the needle. Better turntables will have a counterweight at the back of the arm behind the pivot point, but that is to decrease wear on the vinyl and increase needle life and audio fidelity in the higher end. Some turntables have a lifter arm that is dampened, but if your player doesn't have such a mechanism, or if it has one and you choose to manually manipulate the needle without it's usage, there is no dampening. The fix unfortunately is to buy a turntable with a dampened lifter arm, and to use the arm when lifting and lowering the needle.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6g9rQRF9M The Levitator is a tone arm "auto lifter" for turn tables and record players that do not have an "auto-return" feature, or has one that is broken. If your needle rides in the "wax trail-off" area of a record it can damage the needle, along with making a horrible noise. It is not enjoyable to have to babysit your records and manually take your tone arm off the record the moment it is done. The Levitator does it for you so you can relax and go about your business. When the record is done the tone arm trips the lever triggering the lifter to raise your tone arm/needle off the record. It is designed with adjustable height to fit any turntable. These are available for sale through Ebay,or please see video to order your own.
it was probably lifted with the arm locked in the cradle.there is usually a set screw on the side of the arm lifter to adjust the height.it is on the lower half on most,so removing the bottom cover of the turntable is needed.loosen the screw and slide the piston up until it almost touches the arm in the down position.that way when you raise the lever,it will raise the arm. lift up the rubber mat and tape the platter to the side of the unit so it does not turn or fall,if you do not want to remove it .
There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!
