Question about Audio Players & Recorders
This is a linear tracking turntable with the tonearm in the cover, given to me in virtually unused condition. With everything connected properly, when a record is placed on the platter, the cover is closed and the "start" button is pressed, the platter does not rotate. Nothing happens, except the "repeat" LED begins blinking. If I press the manual button with the cover open, the platter rotates correctly - but of course the tonearm is in the cover, so you can't play the record. The only thing I can get with the cover closed is the blinking "repeat" LED. I've tried pressing the buttons available to me in various combinations and looked for other switches or buttons, all without success. I've also checked to see if anything is interfering with the tonearm, but can find nothing out of place. This is conceptually a very simple turntable, only a few buttons and nothing else. I have a manual, and I am doing what it says to do, but no joy. I hope someone out there has experience with this turntable and can tell me the secret to making it work, or whether it's FUBAR and I should give it up. Aside from the fact that it doesn't work, it is a very nice piece of equipment and I'd like to use it if I can. Thanks in advance Damon Fever
OK a blast from the past. There is a switch that is in the base which senses that the cover is closed and this unlocks the arm and disk motor can rotate. The reason that the disk rotates when the cover is up is because this allows the disk to spin up to speed before the arm comes down. Once the cover comes down the switch unlocks the arm and the arm then moves this switch also can stop the disk if the arm does not unlock.
