Re: record player not working
Unfortunately it sounds like the belt either broke or is slipping. If you're up to it, you can order a replacement belt from a few different places online. As I haven't messed with a turntable in years, I can't make any personal recommendations. A quick google search returned this company, though... http://www.turntableneedles.com/
You'll need the current belt measurements before you order a replacement. And, disassembling the unit will confirm if the belt is broken or just slipping. (Or, better yet, slipped off the pulleys!)
Keep in mind that replacing the belt can be a daunting task.

Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.
I must say I have never come upon a record deck that will only play one side of a good condition record!
The only action I can suggest is to replace the belt if it's a belt driven deck. Please make a note of how it fits before removing the belt. But why any record deck would treat a new record any different on one side than the other will be a mystery to any good engineer.
The only exception would be if the deck played one side good then played up on every other record. Till it's switched off for a while, then repeats this action.
The cause of this fault would be a part overheating the longer the deck is left on. When you stop it to turn over, the system fails. This is however more likely to happen on a direct drive turntable, not a belt driven one.
First check to see you can turn the motor by hand. If it is stiff there's something wrong with the motor. If OK then have a look at the motor. If it works on 12 volts or under, you can attach a 9 volt battery PP9 type to it. If it's 6 volts, use a 6 volt battery! (You might have to remove any wires going to the motor to do the test). This should cause it to spin. If it doesn't it's dead. If it does check the voltage supply to the motor. Also check for broken plastic parts anywhere on the deck.
I have a sony twin cassete deck and the same thing happened to mine , it turned out to be the rubber belt inside was broken so i just bought a pack of assorted belts for $7.97 and replaced both belts .
The mechanism would not have reset to allow the door to latch on. it could be a possible failure of the main/dirve belt. you will also have to check if the hinges are broken or if any freign particles have logged in. Removing the deck mechanism and changing thebelt will require a little expert work and so be very careful in removing.
Are both sides not staying shut? If it's only one side, look to see if the latch is broken. You should see an arm move when you press down the eject button - while the door is open, press the eject button and see where the arm moves. You should see a hook that catches the door and keeps it closed. It could be broken, or just jammed. Look at the other side of the deck and see it it looks like it's working the same. Unjam the latch arm if it's stuck, or replace it if it's broken.
K, I'm not familiar with that particular stereo unit but there were a lot of stereos from years gone past that used a turntable made by BSR. When you activate the switch to start the turntable listen closely to the record platter for a hum or possibly the sound of a motor turning (they're quite quiet). Is the switch lever you pull rectangular made of black plastic, you pull it towards you one click to start the record and pull it one step further (spring loaded) to make the tone arm lift from the record automatically? Just want to make sure I'm talking about the right turntable before we continue.
