TONEARM DOES NOT RETURN AT FINISH OF RECORD MODEL PS-X7


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6g9rQRF9M The Levitator is a tone arm "auto lifter" for turn tables and record players that do not have an "auto-return" feature, or has one that is broken. If your needle rides in the "wax trail-off" area of a record it can damage the needle, along with making a horrible noise. It is not enjoyable to have to babysit your records and manually take your tone arm off the record the moment it is done. The Levitator does it for you so you can relax and go about your business. When the record is done the tone arm trips the lever triggering the lifter to raise your tone arm/needle off the record. It is designed with adjustable height to fit any turntable. These are available for sale through Ebay,or please see video to order your own.

Needle keeps jumping back 4 bars on records


CHECK ANTI SKATING SETTING SHOULD BE SAME AS STYLUS FORCE ABOUT 3.ADJUST TONEARM HEIGHT SO IT IS PARALLEL TO RECORD WHEN PLAYING.HAS THE DECK HAD NEW PHONO CABLE FITTED RECENTLY IF SO THIS WILL BE THE CAUSE GET IT DONE PROPERLY.

The needle on my tone arm won't catch the grooves in the record and instead slides across the record


this old catridges have a small plastic where the neddle rest, but if its missing it couses to slide across the record, you will need to replace the whole assembly becouse they dont sell this little pieze by itself

I am repairing a Sansui XP99 that will just stop,normally at begining of LP record. Sometimes will play all the way through then stop. Will not repeat. Also tone arm lifter is not working


check the drive belt.the arm lifter will not work if there is not enough torque. lubricate the bushings in the motor,as the grease gums up after some years .

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Early tone arm pickup


On some record players there is an adjusting screw at the back of the tone arm that adjusts the tone arm drop in location but I don't think it will adjust the pick up point. That is controled by a steel rod under the record player deck that moves over and pushes a little trip lever near the center of the platter so that a gear is engauged and the end of record cycle is started. I'm not sure but you may be able to find an adjustment under the deck that is near the rotation point of the tone arm that will adjust that rod so that it will pickup later. Hope this helps some.

Aiwa LX770 Turntable won't start


It's a bit after Jim's post, however I had what appears to have been the same problem with my LX770 after it had been stored in the loft for quite a few years. I found the problem to be caused by the tone arm mechanisms stalling - The band that was associated with lifting the arm had turned to a black gunge and was not allowing the motor to rotate, also the motor associated with moving the arm backwards and forwards was struggling to turn. I cleaned the tone lifting pulleys and replaced with a small elastic band (for a temporary fix). This was a little fiddly as you have to take off a spring and a couple of gears to get the new band in place. I cleaned the runners and cleaned off the grease on the worm gears associated with the arm tracking (as I suspected it may be more viscus than originally installed), lightly oiled the tone arm tracking gears. It still seamed to take an amount of helping the tracking arm gears until they were able to move freely. With the tone arm mechanisms working properly the whole unit now seams to be working.
Top tips if you attempt this: WARNING - If the unit is plugged in, the transformer and high voltage wires are live regardless of whether the on button is on or off on the front of the record deck. PLEASE do not take any of my comments as recommendation you should ever do anything with the unit plugged in! Remove the little stylus carrier before you start taking the player to pieces - saves damaging it! Remove the record mat and aluminium platter before turning the unit upside down. Manually push the tone arm to about 0.5cm from its furthest travel - so you can remove the tone arm mechanism plate. May be a little stiff as the wires have to slide of the pulleys for the tone arm to be pushed. To access the tone arm mechanisms, remove the main bottom plate (and greasy spring), then undo the screws which hold on the rear undertray. With the decks buttons toward you, you should then be able to lift the rear tray slightly and tilt the tray towards you to expose the tone arm mechanisms. You shouldn't need to remove the circuit board with the control buttons on the front of the unit.
After getting it going, I found that I needed a Phono preamp to get the signal strength necessary to use the deck for transferring vinyl to my PC.
Good luck
