You might have a bad cue motor/ass'y. Did you buy this new, or used? Are you the original owner? Did this just start happening? Have you done anything different (moved the unit, cleaned it, etc) to the unit?

If the cue ass'y is bad, then that would require professional servicing.

SOURCE: belt fell off

There are two main types of phonograph turntable drives still being manufactured today, the belt-drive and direct-drive systems; the names are based upon the type of motor system found in each.
In a belt drive turntable the motor is located under and to the side of the platter and is connected to the platter by an elastomeric belt.
The design of the belt drive turntable allows the use of a less expensive motor than the direct-drive turntable. Also, the elastomeric belt absorbs motor vibrations which would otherwise be picked up by the stylus.

It apears the lead wiring contact arrangement is typically generic. Green over Red and Blue over white. I searched Google by images and found the wiring arrangement in a detailed photograph of a Denon headpiece with cartridge installed.
So always remember to draw a diagram before disassembling something.

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.

How do I adjust the arm when it won't go to the end of the record?


Usually, the arm won't reach the end of the record when the arm pivot or auto-return mechanism requires lubrication.

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.

Record player repair


The top arm that swings over the spindle will control the automatic return. Leave the unit off. Swing the overhead holding top arm over and manually load a record. Now switch the top arm over the niddle spindle. Make sure that the switch is set for 7", 10" or 12" (45, 78, or 33). Manually place the tonearm at the start of the record and flip switch to 'play' (not reject or auto). It should play the whole record and automatically eject at the end and then shut off. Leave the arm swung over the middle after you loaded the record. Good luck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Why does tonearm drop in middle of record instead of start of record


It thinks it's a 45 rpm. There is a trip lever near the edge of a 33rpm record on the turntable that may not be working properly.

Running VERY slowly


The thing to do is to check the belt first, then look at things like is there a build up of grease dirt anywhere. Clean up the platter make certain no grease or dirt is the works causing it to slow down.
See also that the motor that drives the belt can turn freely and very easy by hand.
