There should be a set screw that you can tighten in order to adjust the height return. If you do not have anything like this, perhaps your record is raised too much. How thick is your rubber mat? Do you have any other mats sitting on top of this?

SOURCE: the arm will automatically return without playing the record

RE:
With the turntable powered of manually rotate the platter approx 12 times to reset the auto operation back to default

This actually worked when I spun the record in reverse 6 times. By the 6 revolution the arm is already touching the record and the motor in motion: from there I let it go and it plays...and now is in manual mode. Meaning I am able to lift the tone arm and advance to where I'd like.

SOURCE: Problem with Auto Return on Thorens Turntable TD 147

Leo J. Nesuahecner The bottom of the tone arm shaft has a white plastic cup with a single screw in it. You need to remove a large square plastic cover also with a single screw to access the cup. This cup has a magnet in it. As the arm rotates to the end of the record this magnet trips a switch that pops the solenoid under the start stop lever. By loosening the screw on the white cup you can rotate the cup so the magnet hits it's switch sooner or later . It is touchy so prepare to to spend time fiddling with it. There is a small pointer on the cup you can use to grab with your fingernail to rotate the cup counter or clockwise. Hardest part is standing the table on end and operating all functions with the left hand and rotating the cup to various positions. Remember to gently tighten the screw after each adjustment or it will move when the tone arm is moved.

I've recently picked up a Pioneer Plx-88z turntable second hand. I know that the player is working ok as putting the arm on the record plays music. The problem is that after a few seconds, no matter what,...


Hi, if it's a second hand device. there must be something wrong with the arm at it's moving axe. if something (dust or broken support) is blocking it, it will return automatically to its rest position to avoid any damage to the fragile and sensible "head"

Changing the needle-how to!


Replace the Needle with a new one (part No. PZP1004) . Remove the old Stylus (or Needle) by pulling it downwards gently, and push the new Stylus/needle in place as shown in the below photo.

I have a Pioneer PL-740 turntable that works extremely well, except there is zero damping when either lifting or dropping (and I mean dropping) the needle. I know there is generally a hydraulic oil that...


most turntables actually only dampen during automatic play and return (eject) not when manually manipulating the needle. Better turntables will have a counterweight at the back of the arm behind the pivot point, but that is to decrease wear on the vinyl and increase needle life and audio fidelity in the higher end.
Some turntables have a lifter arm that is dampened, but if your player doesn't have such a mechanism, or if it has one and you choose to manually manipulate the needle without it's usage, there is no dampening.
The fix unfortunately is to buy a turntable with a dampened lifter arm, and to use the arm when lifting and lowering the needle.

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.
