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.

SOURCE: I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?

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....

Turntable arm not moving across record?


Try, without any record on the table, if you can move the are, to the centre of the table. If you feel anything that is holding the arm, try to find out what it could be. Never use force. Also look inside if you can't find a clear obstruction on the top of the table. If you should find anything, don't bent, or don't break anything. Let a technical skilled person look why the obstruction is there and where the "thing" should be so the aren can move free. Perhaps you ned the obstruction for something only a few centimetres to the left or the right.

HELP: Stopped spinning


It's likely the belt has slipped of and probably needs replacing. You can do this yourself. It will be found under the turntable matt. The trick though is fitting it back on. But you might find the instructions on-line (enter the model number into google search). Some people have even put YouTube video's on how to replace the belt on popular turntables.

I have a Technics SL-QL1 direct drive turntable that works perfectly for about 5 seconds, then it suddenly repeats itself over and over... the record never advances beyond that point. It happens with any...


I don't think it's the direct drive as that just makes the platter spin around. Since the stylus sits in a record which moves it forward, if it gets stuck then it's going to be something to do with the arm of the record player that can't move beyond that point. Check around the piviot of the arm for problems and look at the anti-skating control. If you can move the platter by hand that will prove it's not the drive if the stylus gets stuck.

Turntable wont spin


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.

Hoe do operate the turn table


Lift the arm off the stand and manually move it to the center of the player. You should hear a click and the turntable will begin spinning. To turn it off move the arm to the outside until you hear a click.
