Hi, Do one thing Remove the palter and put one drop of lubricating oil in the center shaft. Also put one drop in the motor shaft. Be carefull do not drope the oil in motor pulley. If so clean the pulley with a cloth. Because it will cause slipping the belton the pulley.Then put the plater back. Rotate the plater with arms for some time. Then check.
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 means you are having a servo problem. The least you can do is remove the top platter and clean the servo sensor ( a small head which faces the inside of the platter. Its a magnetic head which picks up feedback pulses from the rotating platter and locks the speed of the motor electronically. You will need professional help to fix this problem.
Most modern day turntables are semi-automatic. You move the tonearm from the rest post
over to the record and the platter will start turning. There is a small microswitch inside
either below the arm base or near. There should be a flat bar connected to the base of the arm
and this will actuate the microswitch. The switch is wired in series to the rotation motor.
Solution: 1. Obviously verify the belt is on. Take off the rubber mat and rotate the platter.
The rotation motor is on the left and it has a small brass spindle. The belt should
be visable through the holes in the platter. If not pull the platter gently up, there will
be some resistance. The belt wraps around a smaller inner ring on the underside
of the platter and the rotation motor spindle. If it is degraded it will be stuck to the
platter or fall apart. Generally there 3 common sizes. ( 21.4 / 23.6 / 25 inch) they
readily available on E-Bay, search term "turntable belt".
2. Obviously check power.
3. Check the microswitch, it should "click", verify with ohm meter.
4. Some turntables have a "cut" or stop function. The arm must return first to rest before
starting again, again the microswitch is the trigger.
1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.
hiya fixya...well i just opted,,,to take the thing to the repairs.the conclution is that the"platter rotation sensor " had burned out.sent the deck off today.will let you know the outcome,to maybe pass on this info to other ttx 1 users for near future....thanks for your responce.quote 35 quid just to confirm problem...but deducted from final bill of??????.westend dj staff are very helpful indeed where i puchased them from in the begining.
