Question about Sansui VRDVD5000 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

Model MQ-2000 won't work

I inherited a Model MQ-2000 4 Channel Music Center that plays 78 & 33 1/2 records.  I set it up and can get the turntable to turn.  I did not get a manual so I need your help.  Please send a manual or help me via email. I know it's an old system, but I have an extensive collection of records and would like to get the MC going.  Thank You.   Mel Eggers

SOURCE: only spinning at 1 speed

This is a high dollar turntable. If you want, take the screws out, open it up and check that the direct drive speed gear is in place. Other than that I would take it to a repair shop. There's one guy on ebay selling a new one for $500.00

SOURCE: How do you adjust the speed of a Memorex 2601M?

Go inside and look at the main board you should see two/three presets, one for 45 and one for 33 etc.
If not look at the top of the motor for a small hole, it might be covered with a label.

It could be that the wires to the cartridge are off, or that the cartridge is faulty. If you touch two of the 4 wires to the cartridge (when removed) with you finger and the amp on you should hear a buzz on either channel (assuming it's a stereo deck). If you do that's a sign the cartridge has gone. If you don't there's something wrong with the pre-amp in the main part.

Sony PS-LX250H Player arm won't set down to play

Have you made sure the "up/down" button is not depressed? It's the furthest button to the right of the player if you are looking at it head-on. If it is depressed, it will cause the needle to simply hover above the spinning record. A good thing if you want to "pause" your musical experience, but not much help if you are trying to enjoy some sonic sensations.

If it works on Channel One it is NOT the TT. It's a mixer problem. Define the mixer and what else works or doen't work. have you tried another device on Channel 2?

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

Please let me know how your turntable is connected to the music system. I mean, to which input ? (Tape/Aux/Phono/VCR/CD) ?
