Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Let me add a little more detail to the problem I have with a Garrard SP76 turntable.

I have a service manual for the AP76 and the fault I have is listed in the fault list on page 25 for the SL75 as a disengaded spring 110. The spring number on the AP76 is a different number but the spring is in position and working O.K. on my deck. Several years ago I had a simular fault when a spring broke, but as both ends where still attached, and I replaced the spring with a small rubber band and the turntable worked fine untill reciently when the rubber band broke and unfortunitly it did not remane in place. I can not remember where it was located have not been able to establish where the spring should be positioned looking at the parts list although I have identified 11 sprial springs, all of which are O.K. and in the correct positions in my Deck. Can anyone help ? John Smith

SOURCE: stopped turning

Try removing the cover and looking for a broken belt. Make sure that the motor is spinning too. If you find a broken belt, let me know and I'll help you find a replacement.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.
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!!!!!

I have the same problem with mine! If i budge the arm by pushing it to the left a bit, it seems to catch. i think the motor on mine is worn out and cannot get started on its own, but with help, it will slowly move on its own to the edge of the vinyl and drop into playing position. If that doesnt work for you, you might need to clean the belt for the arm motor, or buy a new motor.

Background hum from speakers when turntable is turned on. Turntable is a Garrard Zero 100 and receiver is JVC RX 318. Hum is on even with no Lp on the table and is much louder if I wave my hand over the...

You need tro ground the Zero 100 to the amp frame. Also, you may want to reverse the plug in the outlet, if that is an option (Try to plug the turntable into the amp if possible) Keep trying different arrangements until you minimize the hummmmmm

Where the heck did you find a Garrard Zero 100? That turn table is at least 35 years old ... I have one, BTW and that is how I solved mu 60 cycle hummmmmm

I hope this helps you

Positive comments welcome

Garrard turntable model 630s

There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,
