AT LP60 arm won't lower

This isn't a new turntable--I've had it for a little over a year. I haven't used it in a few months, but I just tried to play a record, and the arm won't lower down far enough to touch the record. It seems to be a problem with the little plastic cradle near the base of the needle in the upper right-hand corner of the turntable, it seems to be permanently raised, as if it were going back to the cradle (it doesn't touch the bottom of the cradle either).

SOURCE: turntable starts playing record middle 1st song

The tonearm lift is no longer level as it should be and the arm is sliding along it under gravity as the arm lowers to the record. Has it received a knock?

Have a close look to see whether it has been tilted slightly. That would be enough to give the problem.

SOURCE: Turntable will not turn (spin)

It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

SOURCE: tone arm comes out and touches record, then goes back to cradle

See what kind of arm position sensing elements are used in your turntable (micro switches, optics or possibly other) and check if they work correctly - sometimes a microswitch can be damaged or have oxydized internal contacts or a badly soldered / broken wire and it will not function properly, causing the unit to stop automatically, the same might happen if the sensor is of optical type and there is some dust or broken wires or if the emmiter or sensor is damaged. Also, it could be a problem with the part that activates the switch / optics, it might be displaced or damaged.

If all sensors / switches seem to work well, then check the section which has wires going to those sensors / switches, it's the next probable location of the fault (it might be an electronic controller so there could be damage to some components, broken wires, dirty connectors or bad solder contacts).

It could as well be something else in the mechanisms, wiring or electronics, i just suggested a few things that might cause the malfunction you described.

Hope you can get it fixed.

hi,
Do one thing adjust counterweight on the back of the arm to 1.5gm or 2gm by rotating the counterweight. It will give some more pressuer on the styles and will avoid the jerking
ok

If it's a turntable with a usb connector, those connections are usually outputs only. USB on a turntable is used to output the audio to a computer to rip albums to digital audio.

I have a JVC turntable (AL-A155TN/AL-A155TNX). I haven't used it in about ten years. I hooked it up today. I played four records on it. Two were fine. The other two, however, started off fine


The only thing that might cause something like that is a build up of static. You can buy anti-static products for records and turntables. I tend to use an anti-static spray which also cleans the records.

ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable, tone arm won't drop


I've got the same problem. When you put therecord on, spin it from the centre, and it will release the mechanism inside,this is what I do, and it works fine. I think the problem is that there are twoplates under the turntable, and there was grease between them, after a few goesthe grease disappears, causing the problem.

The screen is blank and will not play


These have a small lithium rechargeable battery inside and prolonged charging (like overnight) tends to cause them to stop charging. You may even notice the battery is swollen if you remove the cover.

I've replaced the battery in a few of these using a battery of the same size & voltage/amps that I found on eBay. There are other sources but I've found that if you type in the numbers on your battery you'll find a match there. It is a bit of a wait, but usually they're not as expensive and offer low cost or free shipping.

There's probably a local supplier of these, I just haven't explored that route, you may try the WWW approach.

By the way, all of your music/videos files & such should be fine.

I actually use some of the defective broken MP3 & MP4 players as thumb drives holding Windows programs on them to transfer into new PC's. Currently they are as you described yours, but the data is still there.

Good luck!

JVC auto return turntABLE - mODEL al-a95bk


when you said "no sound enough to enjoy listening" did you mean that you could hear something coming thru the speakers, but it isn't loud enough? if so, you may be plugging the turntable into a "ceramic" phono input on your stereo. it may be that your stereo doesn't have a pre-amplifier on the phono inputs. Ceramic tonearm cartridges (the part that holds the stylus - which you may call the needle) have enough output level to drive an amplifier. if your cartridge is magnetic, the output is very low compared o the ceramic. the trade off is that magnetic cartridges have a much wider dynamic range than the ceramic, and when properly pre-amplified, sound MUCH better than a ceramic unit. you can probably find a separate pre-amp at radio shack (i know they sold them several years ago). you plug the turntable into the inputs of the pre-amp, then plug the pre-amps output into your stereo. hope this helps.
