go to this site?
possibly your capstan needs cleaning? remove the platter and locate the capstan which is usually made of brass? if it is dirty, ie; black use cotton balls and neat alcohol (spirits ) to clean it. also, consider changing the belt as it may have stretched?

SOURCE: how do I replace the belt on my Realistic LAB-1500

Getting Started

  1. Remove the rubber platter mat if your turntable uses one. Set it aside.
  2. Lift the platter straight up and off the center spindle to expose the turntable belt.
  3. Remove the original belt and check it for wear. Generally, a turntable belt doesn't slip unless it's damaged. If it is damaged, purchase a new one.
For a Two-Piece Platter Turntable
  1. Loop the replacement turntable belt around the cylinder located underneath the platter.
  2. Check that the belt is working properly by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. It should smoothly move along the motor pulley. If it doesn't, adjust it and turn it again.
  3. Replace the platter, and then carefully lay the rubber platter mat over it.
  4. Turn on the turntable and check it for correct movement. If it looks like it's working, play a record to make sure all is in order.
For a One-Piece Platter Turntable
  1. Loop the replacement belt around the cylinder located underneath the platter.
  2. Replace the platter carefully. One-piece platter turntables are delicate, and if you force the platter down or push it at an angle, you might damage the platter or spindle.
  3. Turn the platter so the hole in it lines up with the motor pulley.
  4. Pull the turntable belt and loop it over the motor pulley. Position it on the pulley groove to make sure it won't slip.
  5. Rotate the platter clockwise to make sure the belt is firmly in the pulley grove. Moving it two or three times ensures that it's in place.
  6. Put the rubber turntable mat back on the platter.
  7. Turn on the turntable. Play a record if it looks like everything is working to check the speed.

How do I find parts for a sanyo modle tp240 turntable

Unless it's a belt or cartridge you want, then realistically your best chance is a Car Boot or E-Bay for a second hand model. Sanyo ceased trading and was incorporated into Panasonic. From recent dealings with that company the chances of getting spare parts from them for something they taken over is tiny. The Car Boot would be much cheaper too!

Major Hiss

The issue could be 1 of 3 things...

1) Cartridge / Headshell
2) Tonearm
3) RCA cables

or a combination.

Hard to isolate the issue. Make sure the cartridge/headshell wires are connected properly. Does the his go away when you touch the tonearm? How about the RCA cables? If so, then that is usually the culprit. Did you buy this new or used? If new, I would suggest returning it, or excersizing the warranty.

If the tonearm is the issue, this is not something I would suggest you replace on your own, as it is rather complicated.

Here is a site to buy all the parts you need for your unit:

Just pick the model you need parts for. You can use any good quality RCA cables, but soldering is required in order to replace.

Hope this helps.
