Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The needle arm does not advance. I can hear the hum of the motor but it will not respond while the record does spin.

Actually, this sounds like the needle is damaged. Make sure there is a tip on there. Just because it's new, does not mean it is not damaged. Sometimes end-users improperly handle the stylus/needle when installing.
If you are 100% certain that the stylus is ok, then the anti-skate needs to be set correctly. Generally, leaving it on 0 (zero) is ok to start. Then try and balance your tonearm according to THESE INSTRUCTIONS. These instructions apply to most turntables. The fundamentals are the same for all turntables in that you need to balance (float) your tonearm for optimal use.
Hope this helps some.

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..

I have found out that the female phono plugs on the turntable are sensative and have to have a solid connection and often adjusted from time to time to eliminate the 60 cycle hum.
