Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
The 33 and 45 lights have stopped illuminating, hence cannot get the record to start playing. There not burnt out as the 33 has flickered off once powered on. Start / Stop button does nothing. Strobe still works, it's in mint condition and has had little use but suspect the kids have been messing with it.

Check that your voltage settings are set correctly. This is located
underneath your turntable platter. If you remove the slipmat, you will
see 2 holes on the metal platter. Rotate the platter till you see the
voltage switch, located @ the 9'o'clock position. Make sure it's set to
your correct settings (N.America = 115V / Euro = 220V). If not, you
will need a flat head screw driver to switch it. Before you switch it,
make sure your unit is off and unplugged. After you swich it, it should
If your still having issues with the speed and the pop-up light, then there is something seriously wrong, and will need to be checked by a technician. Sometimes a resistor or IC will go bad, causing the speed issue, but for the pop-up light - that's usually faulty wiring generally caused by an incorrect replacement.
Did you buy this new or used? Have you had this serviced recently?

did you ever open the turntable. It sounds like the on/off switch is bad. Remove the platter and screws with a phillips screw driver and just make sure the connections are in place. make sure you disconnect the power first. let me know what happens afterwards.

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..

There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!
