Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable
I bought a Technics SL BD22 turntable and connected the red and white stereo cables and also connected the ground wire to the GND connection of my amp. I can hear the needle touching the vinyl but the turntable wont spin. I have checked fuse in plug and the belt is fine. Can anyone help?
If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.
