Will not drop 45's

I have a 70's Magnavox Console Stereo that plays 78's great. The records will drop and the arm goes to the right place. However, the 45's are not dropping. The spindle is in the correct position. The little thingie will go in on the spindle so the record should drop. When this happens, the turn table slows down almost to a stop.

Anyone got any suggestions

I think the spindle is broke or stuck in some way! if you have another one try that! and if you dont you may be able to use those little plastic adapter thingys and place them on the 45s and try that !
It sounds to me like the spindle is sticking and is pulling the turntable belt and slowing it down!
I would look for a new/used spindle
I think this will fix ya!

I have a Magnavox stereo console: Astrosonic Series. The record player was playing fine until a month ago. The volume is now so low you can hardly hear the record playing


Since the volume of the radio seems to be fine it is doubtful that the amplifier is malfunctioning. I will check the stylus to see that it's fully seated and examine the wires in the tonearm that connect to the cartridge. If they seem okay then I suspect the cartridge may be bad

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.

Tone arm not lifting when record is over


Hello Caufield,

Ideas... Yes, indeed,

But without a MAKE or MODEL they focus
a lot on ESP & other psychic capabilities...

(Mind reading: The lack thereof)... Sorry...!!

In ye olden daze...
when I was young the (stacked record CHANGERS &
simple turn table) TONE arms were largely Rube
Goldberg
electro-mechanical thingy-ma-call-it...
that triggered off of the wag action of the center grooves ...
(in all 78, 45 and 33 rpm records (once upon a time)).
Rube Goldberg Wikipedia

Without BENEFIT of year, make or model... ONE
might ACTUALLY look at the mechanical MECHANISM
and SEE the broken or missing spring, link or cam...

The very first/last action of ARM CONTROL was
the lift/lay action of the tone arm..

Without that FUNCTION "working" you are just
ruining records & needles...

My best advice would be to REPOST with
a hint of the proper nomenclature... I'm pretty sure
an appropriate volunteer expert will step forward.

Try it... you will like it and it is still totally FREE

The arm with the needle slides across the LP record - doesn't pick up sound


This is often a problem when you are using a 78 needle on a 45 or 33 record. Some needles can be flipped, so check to see if yours is able to flip between the 78 and 33 setting. If not, you may simply need a new one.

hi,
somewhere on that player is a switch for 78-45-33 rpm the speed switch look up around by the tone arm above by where the record goes, it may not be on the front. switch it to the correct record you have 45's are small. 78's are medium and 33rpms are the big records..

Record won't retract


If it isn't making any move to retract the tray it's probably the trip switch. If you look in the back and follow the mechanics under the tone arm you'll see how it closes a switch as the arm goes to the centre of the record. Clean the switch or adjust it.

If it is half returning the tray it is the tray stack all gummed up. Use Servisol Silicon spray or have it rebuilt by someone who knows how.
