Question about Philco 841.169 Turntable

1 Answer

Standby button fails to go green

Once the power button is turned on, the standby light is red. Pressing the button fails to change the light to green, thereby unable to select CD, phono, tuner, etc. How can you either fix, or bypass this step?
Thank you.

If there is a remote control does it work from it?
have you tried removing power from the wall for a few minutes then retry, sometimes the computer inside gets scrambled brains and a hard power reset might wake it up.

Arm not working. Stop/start light flashes red instead of staying solid


Don't try and force anything that won't move. Try this. With the power unplugged, place the tonearm over the record, if it will move freely, while rotating the platter by hand. Move the tonearm slowly over the surface of the platter until the end. Continue turning the platter by hand and see if the tonearm picks up and returns to the rest. See if that fixes your issue.

A few years ago I purchased a Philco capital turntable CD cassette. One day my wife was listening and for some reason she pressed the standby button, ever since then nothing will work. The power does come...


maybe the button when being pressed isn't releasing through a bad button . it would make sense that when the button is pushed it stops all functions so if you r able to disconect the button from the wires tape the wires together to create a closed circuit and see if it works personally i would take it to a repair facility for the safety factor of messing around with it but if u want try it

My turn tabel isnt spinning


The drive belt has come off. Open the lid. Remove the rubber mat on the platter. Remove the C-shaped clip from the center of the turntable. Lift the platter up and off. Find the flat rubber band that connects platter and the motor. Plug it in and verify that the motor turns when you press power, then standby, then phono.If the motor spins, unplug power and place the drive belt on the underside of the platter. This is not easy, but it can be done with patience. Then put the C-clip back on and replace the mat. Congrats!.

CDJ-200; Only the power button works, nothing else.


I have the same unit accept mine was 1000, mine did the same thing, im fairly electrical incline, but its much more complicate trying to fix it your self, I can recall contacting the manufacture and they had me ship the unit to closet authorized dealer and have it repair. If it still in warranty, you need to contact them asap. 1 (866) 214-1310

I just changed the drive belt. Immediately following that, the motor is intermittent; it has worked a bit, but also cuts out for no apparent reason. Once it cuts out--happened twice--I cannot get it...


motors get burned out spots after many hours of playing eventually in time. it just so happens that when the motor stops, sometimes it stops in that dead spot, or may have more than one deadspot, which will require replacing the motor or better yet replace the whole turntable since everything will be new!

Nothing happen when pressing the Start/Stop button.


One ov my decks (same Gemini PT-1000 II) had the same problem. Just open it and clean the micro switches underneath the big buttons. It worked fine for me.

Platter or motor or what?


Been seeing a lot of problems like this on the newer decks. if the lights instead of moving smoothly are moving a bit, then stopping a little, then moving a bit more. or just wobbling a little bit usually has something to do with the motors... I have also just had to have mine replaced to was having the same problem.... expensive
