Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

No rotation. Hi, I have a DP 315 F turnatble that has been sitting idle for MANY years. It hasn't been in service for about 10 years, but it was functioning perfectly back then. It has always been stored and transported properly (in the original box and packing material and with the locking screws in place). Unfortunately, after unpacking it this last time I find that it will not turn. The function buttons light up, the tone arm lifts and settles back on the post, but no rotation. I have no doubt that this problem stems from non-use, but I know nothing about electronics. Any suggestions? TIA! Tim

    Hi rockdiary,

    Unfortunately, this is a direct drive turntable so no belt. I figure either the motor itself went south or somehow the electronics are not allwoing anj juice to get to the motor...problem is I have ne equipment for testing this.

    I tried spinning the turntable manually several times (it spins freely and smoothly btw) in hopes that if it was the motor just needing to be "awakened", but no luck...just dead as a doornail.

    Thanks for giving it a shot, bud!

The only thing i can think of is that the belt dries out after years of storage. kind of like tire rot. the tension or the grip in the belt is no longer there and there for no rotation. check "LP gear" for the replacement parts. do a search

Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

EM 3500 Will start, then stalls after 30 minutes, starts again and continues to staff after 5 to 10 minutes. Oil is fine.

With regrets, I do not have any personal experience with generator troubleshooting. However, I have been informed by some people that have good experience with them that a generator needs to be run for a couple of hours every month to keep the system in proper order. Should a generator sit idle for ten months, the fuel can actually "shellac" inside the carburetor and lines. This will then travel to areas that will gum up - thus the necessity to drain the tank and carburetor completely.
Here is their advice:
Your service person(s) may not be aware of the time the unit sits idle, and if they are aware - then they are not giving you straight facts (in my opinion). I would suggest contacting Honda customer service directly, and explain this situation to them - they will probably be more then happy to have a technician assist you properly. Contact the 'customer relations' number, and they will direct you from there. Here is the link:

I am sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Hi! GE top load washer model number wwse5240 is leaving grease stains inside the machine after laundering and of course on clothes. Not sure how old this machine is.

Your transmission is leaking oil. It's probably 10 to 15 years old for the transmission to be leaking. It can be replaced but it's not a small job. Part 320 in this diagram is your transmission.

My dp-01 wont power up. it just sits idle on the reading song there anything i can do? or will i have to have it serviced? i have owned it for 4 years so no warranty.its just the basic unit no...

That looks like the same kind I have. They have a hard disk inside. You can try what I sometime do with laptops. Lift it up a few inches on one side, and let it drop on the table. Sometimes that helps. Do not rop it to high though!! only enough to kinda shake the harddrive a bit.

It won't be valve timing or clearance. The fuel/air mix would be the culprit. Clean the carburetor with special attention to the idle circuit. Remount the carb with new manifold gaskets. A manifold air leak will mess up the mixture. Also, get a new spark plug one heat range colder than stock. Hope this helps out!

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
