Question about Technics SL-BD20D Turntable
When I move the arm I can hear something running but the table doesn't spin.
Take off the rubber mat and see if the belt is off the aluminum platter the record sits on you should be able to see the rubber belt when the mat is removed. If it is not there or broke it will need replaced.

1) This turntable either has bad RCA cables or a faulty tonearm - in either case, none are easy fixes. FYI, If you use Ortofon Concorde series, they are notorious for causing faulty connections with your tonearm, and eventually deteriorate your tonearm over time. So you might want to think about changing them if you get a new tonearm put on. If you use the Technics headshell, you are fine. 2) This turntable definitely needs to have the tonearm replaced. Once the arm comes loose from it's bearings, it's next to impossible to get it back to factory specs, and you will have skipping issues. Both will require professional servicing.

under the tone arm next to the lever ther is a sort of plastic bar which lifts the tone arm when lever is up right, look along that bar and there is a screw which you turn as you would to tighten anything.you will see the bar move down,try again and if you still have the same problem repeat the process till done......

Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....
