Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Rega planner 3

Hi, daughter has been taking about vinyl; so good idea to play some classic records. Turntable has been up in loft and has not been used for years. Nope; turntable is working; phonos connected to auxiliary, but no sound. I have a Naim 5i integrated amp and Naim 5i CD player. Any ideas? Thanks Colin

If the amp does not have a dedicated sockets for a turntable - often marked "phono". Then plugging it into an aux socket won't work. You will need to get a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp. The turntable plugs into this and that plugs into your aux socket. If at the present you turn up the volume really loud you might just hear the record playing. That will tell you that the cartridge is OK.

SOURCE: everything works on my record player but my turntable doesnt spin

This happened to me tonight. I had the same problem, to activate the player on you need to move it to the right until you hear a click. If you don't do it it won't start. Even if all the power is on. This should fix everything!

SOURCE: all my vinyl sounds warped on turntable

Most common problem is the belt getting soft, especially if it has sat for a long time. It will get a weak spot where it sat on the drive pulley and every time the turntable goes around and hits that weak spot it will slow down a little making it sound like a warped album.

The belts are usually very easy to replace. Usually just lift off the turntable or there might be a small clip on the center pin, then it lifts off. Replacement belts can be ordered from several places, as shown in this search... http://www.google.com/search?&q=SL-B200+Technics+turntable+belt

SOURCE: hum when turntable connected to phono sockets on amp

this turntable absolutely came with a ground wire that must connect to the gnd connection on the amp. maybe it got torn off or something but there should be clues on the back of the turntable as to what happened to it.

once the lead is found it must be connected to the amp gnd connect to get rid of the hum. this might require someone with soldering skilz or what have you in order rig up a new wire.

a tech might have to remove the bottom and solder in a new wire if it is cut or ripped off at the housing. This is common as people forget to unhook the gnd wire from the amp when moving things around.

Why does the turntable stop and just sit on the record before the record is finished?


The turntable shouldn't sit on the record at all. You'll really damage your vinyl by doing that.
Always ensure that the vinyl disc is placed over the spindle, then rests on the platter so that the stylus can play it as intended.

Do you have a switch to select the size of the record as well? We had a record player that could play 7" singles at 33rpm (floppy vinyls given away by Sunday papers). We had to select 33rpm and also 7" on a separate lever for this to work.

Either you have a poor earth connection or you are getting a lot of static from the records you play. The best way of getting rid of static is a spray you can get for cleaning records. Search on-line for Anti-Static Record Cleaner.

your choice of "Vibe" turntable could have not been worse.
Any serious Vinyl collector would not use such a cheap piece of equipment.
