Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I am the original owner of a Technichs qd-22 TT rarely used. After changing stylus (old one broked while cleaning?) the TT first did not stop automatically after playing a record, soon followed by not reacting to the cue and stop buttons. Now, you cannot even stop the spinning by returning the tone arm manually but have to rely to the on off button,which still works. Sound performance is still perfect. What do I do to repair this semi-automatic TT which has turned fully manual?
Hi, with the tone arm sitting on its mount rotate the platter manually approx. 12 times. That should reset all the auto functions. Cheers john.

Testimonial: "Thanks John! Rotating the platter 12 times did restore the function of stopping the spinning platter when returning the tone arm to its resting postition. However, it did not solve the problem of the cue and stop buttons not working, nor did it restore the auto return at the end of a record. Any more magic tips and tricks?"

SOURCE: Tone arm won't drop
This is a tough one. There is usually a series of gears that function in unison to make all the magic happens. These gears are usually set in motion by a smaller belt located inside the unit. If this belt has come off or is damaged, your unit will not work. Or, if the gears have cracked, or dried up, same issue.
Suggest taking it to a service center for repair.

You need a belt.. Lift up the record support..(platter) Underneath you will see a metal post.. Belt goes around that and the bottom of the plate.(there is a rim) . If the belt is there, motor might be bad..

on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!

That is correct and it won't return after the record has finished playing I suspect.

Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com
