Re: platter spins very slowly

What exactly do you mean put into vinyl mode? Do you mean only when the motor is turned on? Just curious, because this will narrow your symptoms. If your motor is on and playing slow or not at right speed, there is two possibilities, ONE: you need a new motor PCB, TWO: you need a secondary controller PCB. I could walk you thru how to check, upper and lower halfs of the CDX come apart.

Re: platter spins very slowly

Well hope fully its something small. check your pitch control first make sure its not set at a slow speed. then check your start stop knobs at the bottom of the table. roll them one way then start it see if that works, then the other way... if its not that then its possibly its a malfunction ,, Numark with there new awesome products but sometimes faulty that turntable wigs out goin slow then normal then slow ect... If its less then a year send it in it is coverd by warrantee

I have a LP60 USB and theres a burning smell coming from the platter?

You mean while playing a record?.... I shall tell you a secret, eveytime you needle plays a record, it melts the vinyl a bit , just like that you can ice skate and melt the ice through the pressure.
But if you smell your vinyl then your needle is installed very wrong.
And needs to be replaced.

Pls read this

if you smell your platter, without playing a song , you have to watch if. it spins at normal speed without variation, then you can remove the platter and give your bearing one drup oil. But that ain't the problem.

you have to smell the motorunit, since it's a cheap turntable and ain't having good components, but start with following that link i gave you and you only have a motor with some electronics , a belt
and a bearing with a platter and in your case a builtin usb and phono-amplifier which are useless, because the quality is way too low. not much can go broke.

Stantonst.150 turntable platter spins unevenly

Well, you have the rotor, which has above the conus where you put your platter on. But the rotor needs to be kept in space, so it can spin,
which offcourse in the is done by (too soft) bearings, but the bottom of the the rotor(which looks the same as the 'pin' where you put you vinyl on, just leans on a piece of metal, instead of a technics where it falls in a shaft too keep it is place.
You undestnd that the strength on the bearings of a st150 is much higher, especially when scratching. Besides that, the high torque works 0,2 sec and then an optocoupler samples the speed of the rotor. And it's easy:on the underside of the rotor ,there's a plastic round disc puled over the rotor and kept on his place by a plate and 3 screws, with on the outside just

Crosley CR249 warped table

Sounds like you need a new platter. Has the platter worked OK before or has it always been like this?
I suspect you might have to contact Crosley to see who supplies parts.

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.

If you can turn the platter easily by hand, then so should the motor. You can also disconect the power leads to the motor and hook up a PP9 9 volt battery to it. If it\'s slow and easily stopped from rotating then there\'s nothing wrong with the power to the motor and the motor is bad!

Turntable does not rotate, help!!

Put your ear to the turntable platter in the on mode. If you can hear a motor spinning sound and no rotation you have a slipped or broken belt.
Remove the rubber matt from top of the turntable platter and now while slowly rotating the platter look through cut out in the metal, at one point you will see a motor spindle and a belt. Feel the tension of the belt , it should be wrapped tight round the pulley. bobhifi_13.jpg

My Pioneer CDJ 800 MK 2 - will not play in the vinyl mode, the cue button is flashing _ if i take it out of vinyl mode it will play fine , do i need to reset it?

Does the unit play in vinyl mode if you turn the platter by hand?. If this the case the commom fault in the "sheet switch" which is under the platter and sensors the pressure when you press the platter.

The "sheet switch" and it is a circular plastic "sandwich" of multiple contacts and when constant pressure is put on it (i.e something is sat on it for a long time), it tends to stick together giving the effect you are pressing it when you're not.
The part will cost you about £30.00 + fitting - unless you are confident enough to do it yourself

email me if you would like to order one.

CD Mode does not react in the same manner as as Vinyl mode when you try to back spin. At the very least, you will only be able to go back a few bars. It's mainly used to set the Cue properly.

If you want it to back spin, you'll have to use the Vinyl mode.

Numark tt1625 turntable wavey sound

Your belt is probably worn and needs replacing. Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

Pioneer CDJ-800 Vinyl Mode Broken

This is a common issue. There is a faulty switch on the CDJ800s, which needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix, and will need to be serviced by a professional.

If your unit is under warranty, I suggest sending it off to Pioneer for repair. If you cannot find anyone locally, our company offers nationwide service.
