Question about Denon DP-47F Turntable

Open Question

Denon DP-47f tonearm quickly skates across the platter.

After reassembling my DP-47f according to the service manual, when I press the start button, the platter rotates but the tonearm quickly skates across the platter right to left and then back again. It repeats this motion continuously so it keeps bouncing right to left until the stop button is pressed.
Thank you in advance for any help.

You might have a bad cue motor/ass'y. Did you buy this new, or used? Are you the original owner? Did this just start happening? Have you done anything different (moved the unit, cleaned it, etc) to the unit?

If the cue ass'y is bad, then that would require professional servicing.

SOURCE: platter turns slow

This turntable design has a direct drive system instead of belt drive (two types). If this unit has been in storage for some time, it has most likely been at hot or cold tempuratures - not good for any electronic/mechanical system. 
My guess is that the direct drive motor needs to be rebuilt - internal friction is probably keeping it from operating at proper speed. Best to consult with a repair shop that can handle direct drive turntables - several on the internet, if you cannot find one locally.

Basically, like almost any other turntable.

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Tracking and Anti-skating controls to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force and anti-skating. Play records.

How do i find a turntable cartridge technics headshell SL-BD22


The SL-BD22 turntable's tonearm does not have a headshell. It takes a P-mount (otherwise known as a T4P) cartridge which plugs directly into the end of the arm.

Denon DP-7F subweights


I don't know what you are referring to as sub weights. Everything you need is already on the tonearm.First you have to balance the tonearm, then you adjust for stylus pressure and anti-skating. For more information, please my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

My denon 26-f turntable stylus arm lifts about 2 minutes before end of record. how can this be adjusted on the turntable?


Hi Richard, at the base of the tonearm look for a rubber grommet. Under it you will find a screw. Adjust clockwise slightly to make the tonearm lift further along. Fine tune antil sorted. If the adjustment is not at tonearm base remove the rubber platter mat. If the platter has an access hole in it rotate platter so the hole is near the tonearm and look for scew to adjust.

The arm just slides across the record.


The link for this model's manual is a dead-end at the Panasonic website. I lodged an email complaint.

If the tonearms balance and anti-skate are set properly it should track correctly.

When you lower the tonearm does it actuallu drop onto the platter or does it seem to hover? Look at the stylus to make sure a dustball hasn't clogged the tip.

Platter won't turn


Souds like the belt has snapped or slipped off. Lift the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg
