I have the same problem with mine! If i budge the arm by pushing it to the left a bit, it seems to catch. i think the motor on mine is worn out and cannot get started on its own, but with help, it will slowly move on its own to the edge of the vinyl and drop into playing position. If that doesnt work for you, you might need to clean the belt for the arm motor, or buy a new motor.

We have a kenwood p100 turntable. It starts turning automatically when the arm comes over but it misses the first bit of the song. it doesn't kick in ! Can we adjust it and if so , how??


The manual shows that it is not an automatic turntable you have to position the stylus over where you want to start. Then you press the cue button to send the stylus down.
One thing that might cause it to move down wrong is vibration or movement of the deck. Make certain any transit screws or in the correct position for play and that the surface you have it on doesn't move. IE: no floorboard movements!

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.

How do I adjust the triggering position of the automatic switch off and tone arm return on a Harksound (by CEC) HS 210 Semi Automatic turntable?


Hi, at the base of the tonearm you will find a rubber grommet. Remove the grommet and insert a flat blade screwdriver. Adjust screw to the right until arm lands in correct position. Cheers john. Stylus City.

Converting a turntable from automatic to manual


I suppose the only way to do it would be to stop it functioning completely. The only way would be to dissasemble the auto function. What you would need to do is work out which parts are essential for the turntable operation and which only activate the return. So you need to whatch the mechanism working. You will need to remove the base and look at from underneath, just like going underneath a car!
I can't say for certain if you can do it, only you will be able to determine it can be removed without affecting the operation of the entire turntable.

Try putting 1 only,drop of sewing machine oil on motor at shaft and let it soak in while manually rotating shaft being careful not to get oil on anything else and see if this helps.

Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.


http://www.vinylengine.com/library/pioneer/pl-570.shtml
on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!
