Question about Denon DP-47F Turntable
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.
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.
