Question about Denon DP-47F Turntable

2 Answers

Turntable speed erratic

My denon DP-7F (20 yrs old) direct drive "drags" when first turned on, but only in one spot per revolution. After about the first 20 minutes a 45 rpm will play O.K. but it takes about an hour for an L.P. to play correctly.The unit has not been used that much.

Hi...
It doesnt sound like it's related to an Auto function ( auto lift tonearm end of LP lift)
so...The motor is the only issue.
It could be the motor drive circuit or the motor.
It's fixable by a qualified tech.
I'm not sure what it's worth to you though.

It is likely that grease has hardened and as the gears rotate that grease is interfering with normal operation. Take the unit apart and have a look at the drive mechanism, if there is something in the gears you should be able to see it.

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.

Adjust pitch


Register (free) at Vinyl Engine and download the service manual. The adjustment you need to do seems fairly simple. You will need a turntable strobe disk to get the the speed right, unless you have perfect pitch.

Denon dp-7f sounds fuzzy


This could be caused by a poor earth wire connection to the cartridge.

Denon DP-7F subweights


I don't know what you are referring to as sub weights. Everything you need is already on the tonearm.First you have to balance the tonearm, then you adjust for stylus pressure and anti-skating. For more information, please my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Denon turntable DP 26F turntable doesn't turn


through the platter motor access window, unhook belt from motor spindle (usually brass) which is exposed on the left side when you remove the mat.

Now give the motor a spin with your thumb/index finger. repeat up to maybe a dozen times. sometimes a motor like this will get a dead spot where a bit of debris will 'gum up the works' and stop the electrical contact it needs to spin.

if it does start working by some miracle, then just let is sit and run at 45rpm for hours or even days, this may kinda rub off some very light corrosion that might have built up on the armature over the years. (if it is a brush type motor)

Platter turns slow


This turntable design has a direct drive system instead of belt drive (two types). If this unit has been in storage for some time, it has most likely been at hot or cold tempuratures - not good for any electronic/mechanical system. 
My guess is that the direct drive motor needs to be rebuilt - internal friction is probably keeping it from operating at proper speed. Best to consult with a repair shop that can handle direct drive turntables - several on the internet, if you cannot find one locally.

BTW: You can find a manual for this at : http://www.vinylengine.com/library/denon/dp-45f.shtml

Best regards,

Belt came off


Remove the rubber mat and you will see two holes in the turntable. Put your fingers in these holes & using equal force pull up to release the turntable. The drive belt goes around the metal disk you will see below and around the drive pulley. Most likely it has just jumped off the pulley so hook it back over. Replace the turntable and gently rotate it a couple of revolutions, you can see the belt through the holes in the turntable. If all is seated OK power up & enjoy! You can download the manual from the link below: http://usa.denon.com/DP29F_DFU_ownersmanual.pdf This shows the procedure as per original install. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
