My GE Mustang record player turns on but the tonearm raises and then sits back down on the rest and it shuts off?

It power on and the turntable spins but the tonearm raises up and swings alittle to the outside and then back over the rest and lowers onto the rest and the record player shuts off. The tonearm won't swing towards the record at all and the turntable only spins for about 5 seconds and then it shuts off.

SOURCE: 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!!!!!

SOURCE: tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix

I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

SOURCE: Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249

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

SOURCE: I have a Crosley CR49 turntable and the tonearm

that situation is possible that it is bent a little. make sure your table is level when using it and check the weight in the back to see if its too far out leaving the tone are to bounce of drift easily. you can manually put the needle down in the meantime.

After an album side is finished, my Thorens TD 185 turntable disc refuses to stop spinning.


Some turntables do not return the arm to the rest. However if it did so previous then something could have broken or become out of place underneath the turntable. The only way to check is look under the turntable by removing the base and looking for signs of damage.

How do I adjust the auto return on a JVC A-21 record Player? The auto return keeps returning to the holder after the record finishes but then adjusts itself back twd the record and drops just on the edge...


Hi, this problem is caused by the cut off switch not depressing far enough to turn unit off. To remedy you need to do as follows.
1. Disconnect from power supply.
2. remove platter.
3. Flip unit over to expose the underside and remove all screws.
4. Remove base board.
5. Look at the gearing beneath the tonearm and identify switch that tonearm depresses at the rest point.
6. Loosen switch retaining screw and turn switch toward centre of turntable slightly until it clicks or closes. Tighten screw to hold switch firmly in place at that point.7. Reassemble and test.

Good luck. John. Styluscity@gmail.com.

Aiwa turntable px-e860: Hi, I've inherited this timetable from a friend and it's worked fine until recently but now here's the problem: if I push start, the arm lifts up, moves to the record...


Hi, I;m not familiar with that exact model however the problem you are describing is commonly caused by the automatic operation at some point not being allowed to complete its full operation. Ie the tonearm has been returned manually to its rest position before reaching the end of the record. Try this. With the player not powered up lift the tonearm across to the record run off groove and sit it there. You may feel some resistance which is normal as the mech has to eswt itself. Now turn on the power and turntable. The arm should automatically return from there to its rest. Try auto operation after that. Let me know how you go. Cheers John. styluscity@gmail.com

Turntable stops before the end of a 45. Works fine for Albums. I found 1 solution but that says to take the player apart.


Just had this occur to me and after a couple seconds figured it out. Tonearm returns once it hits a certain height on the tonearm guide (the bit that goes up and down when you raise or lower the tonearm cue lever.) If you manually hold down the guide, the tonearm will continue to play the 7" until the end. You don't have to push down hard, just a nice gentle [pressure while the record plays should do it. It solved the problem for me.

How do you adjust the tone arm on a Denon DP-47F turntable? Thanks Cosmicharlie


Basically, like almost any other turntable.

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

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 Tracking and Anti-skating controls 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 and anti-skating. Play records.

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.
