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.

My Mt 750 Fisher turns on the table spins a moment but the arm does not move what is wrong?


What you have is a record changer; and malfunctions today are probably more likely that in the past--even after the prestigious Fisher name and price had been largely supplanted in the post war years--before mfg quality control as a customer fault under protection (for sellers) by Warranty dodges had come to the fore. (In actuality, while record changers would would have been favored by record producers--for the rapid rate at which they destroy records--they would have been looked upon with disdain by pro disc jocks as well as high-end audio equipment producers (including Fisher) in favor of single play turntables that don't destroy records that must be played "on the air," repeatedly, hundreds of times per week in successsion.)

1. Did you unclip the tone arm from its resting post?
2. Remove record and turn off platter (name for a turntable record support) drive motor, and unplug the player machine.
  1. While manually rotating platter in PLAY direction (that's CW), actuate PLAY lever to its extent, release, and watch for tone arm movement as you continue platter hand rotation.
    1. (Oh yes, make sure the record hold-down arm is up and rotated outward to prevent hold-down-arm drop from causing changer to return tone arrm to stow post and dis-actuating START lever...such features once accurately called "self stop,: today inaccurately called "auto stop."
      1. ...by the way, could your problem be that you did not lower hold-down arm onto record(s)? ...making the changer mechanism below the platter "think" that all records had been played...so that it swung and stowed tone arm and then Self Stopped the player rather than repeat-playing the top-of-stack record (in order to save changer and record wear and tear)? Is your problem now solved? Just in case not, continue...
  2. As you hand rotate and watch, the tone arm (and release spindle with no record on it) should "recapitulate" its normal, record changing and playing motions--you are simply "handing" in for the platter motor.
  3. If there is a "hitch in the changer's stride" (that means a jam) it will also occur and be felt operating the changer manually. At that point, you will have "set" the changer mechanism in conflict-fault position for facilitating inspection to find the specific problem.
  4. Note that since record-changer-/turntable-type players are permanently confined to level-only use, that means the turntable/changer platform need not be affixed to its base (some are--some aren't) so it might be possible to simply lift the turntable/changer platform assembly up off the base to inspect underneath. Some (possibly most) turntables/ changers, on the other hand, are apt to be fastened to the base (lest the furniture be bumped into...but those typically did little more than prevent tone arms from skating some ot the time) in a suspension arrangement (if not rigidly) that incorporates helical thrust springs and hold-down screws at each hold down point, typically 4 in number. Detaching the platform is apt to involve simply looseing and then over loosening the screws...or by some other obvious or not so obvious means.
    1. Being mindful of any hard-connected wires, unfasten, lift, and invert changer platform to inspect underneath.
    2. Take appropriate corrective action at point of jamming.
    3. Revert and refasten platform and re-run manual-unpowered operation to confirm corrections.
    4. Return power to player and test using a record.
    5. Thank yourself for posting your question...if all or some of the above works.

JVC turntable AL-E300 turntable slowing down when tone arm moves iacross


Even if the belt looks fine it's almost certainly the problem. You mentioned "cleaning" - if you got any kind of fluid on the belt it might act as a lubricant and reduce the friction between the belt and the drive wheel, causing the turntable to slow when the tone arm puts a drag on it. The problem may go away when the belt dries out.

Why douen't my technics turntable spin?


Take off the rubber mat and see if the belt is off the aluminum platter the record sits on you should be able to see the rubber belt when the mat is removed. If it is not there or broke it will need replaced.

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.

Try moving the tone arm lever to raise the arm, if it has one.(MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RELEASED THE ARM CLIP!) Then with the arm raised move the arm over towards the platter. If platter still doesn't rotate, and its a belt drive, A. The belt is bad. or B. The belt has come off the platter or motor pulley.

It sounds like you have too much pressure on the tone arm. Check the underside for springs. You might be able to remedy the problem the old fashioned way. Tape a coin onto the top of the tone arm, as far to the rear as possible. This will eliminate some of the downward pressure onto the record.

I have a Califone 1620 model economy classroom phonograph in need


Probably a bad relay switch. Open up the turntable. Identify the motor that spins the table. Follow the wires of that motor to, perhaps, some type of little circuit board with a relay. I have a Backley-Cardy 322-487 classroom phonograph which uses a Califone 1620 amp and a BSR turntable. To get the table to spin, you have to move the tone arm. Mine doesn't move and I'm in the process of replacing the faulty relay that is the problem.
