Hard to say, but could be either a faulty cartridge or the wires connected are wrong or off.

SOURCE: Record will not play to end.

There is a mechanism underneath the deck which senses "end of record". This is operating too early and will require adjustment.

SOURCE: 1960s stereogram.bsr turntable turning to do fast.

If I can understand you right, the turntable is running fast. I don't think you need a new motor, generally the deck will run slow if the motor is knackered (or not at all). What you need to do is remove the platter, you will find a horseshoe bracket holding it on at the spindle (it may be covered up so you wil have to remove the cover part often a silver disc). The most likely cause will be the rubber idler tyre being worn damaged etc or out of place. There could be grease dirt or something else causing the problem.

Does old Zenith Allegro Console Stereo - 8 track/AM/FM/turntable, have a belt drive phono? I can see metal gears to drive the stuck turntable .


The manufacturers of such items would usually buy in such hardware as record turntables from fairly standard catalogues.

One popular brand of turntable was the BSR but the design of other brands were similar. The metal gears aren't for driving the turntable but to drive the multichange mechanism so when one record has finished playing another will drop from the stack loaded onto the extended centre spindle.

This type of turntable is driven by a synchronous motor with a multidiameter spindle via a moveable idler wheel equipped with a soft rubber tyre. Lack of maintenance causes many problems and as the rubber tyre ages it tends to harden and lose traction on the inside of the steel turntable so when the record reaches the end and the metal gears engage there is insufficient torque and everything stops.
It is for that reason many older examples have had the multichange removed or disabled.

Removing the turntable centre motif should reveal a circlip which when removed will allow the turntable to be removed for maintenance.

Hey there, After a power outage the motor that drives the platter "BSR turntable" does not function. Is there a fuse or some other likely suspect?


If the motor is directly connected to a mains supply then the chances are that when power was restored it burnt out or damaged the motor itself. Following the mains lead into the unit should answer where the power goes. If it goes to a transformer and it's associated power supply the problem will be found there.

I need a service manual for the BSR McDonald CA 50 turntable


BSR tended to make old style turntables, ones with a 78rpm speed on. I don't the model in question, but if it is a one of these, there's not much to them. Basically a rubber tyre runs inside the rim of the platter, while the tyre is pushed on a mains powered motor, in at least 3 different positions (depending on the speed). The tyre moves up and down depending which speed is selected.
Speed faults are caused by either a bad motor, or muck, oil, or grease in it.
A faulty tyre that is worn and doesn't push on the motor or platter anymore or not hard enough. Plus of course tyre height setting wrong.

How to fix flutter & wow on a Gemini 500 XLii direct drive turntable


Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.

I replaced the stylus with needle and now when i try to play a record, it makes a terrible crackling noise and the record sounds completely blown out. just bought a new tuner preamp too, so its probably...


Unplug everthing. Reseat all connectors, Did you replace the cartridge when you replaced the stylus? If so, verify that the 4 tiny tiny wires and connectors are on tight. Also, some of these turntables have a 'knob' built into the tonearm that you need to twist to release/lock the whole head assembly of the tone arm. Try to see if you have a removable tonearm cartridge assembly and then twist this tight. It sound like its in the wiring from the cartridge to the connectors to your preamp. The levels are so low, that any loose connection will be amplified 100 times.

Turntable does not rotate when switched 'on'.


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.

Needle drag


Hi, i know this sounds stupid but have u tried using a different record as the record your using may have a defect which wont allow it to play any further. I would also make sure that you weight the tonearm as much as possible but not to much that you wear ur needles out. Let me know how you get on. Gud luck!
