My Technics turntable slqdd22 cue and stop buttons not working

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?"

    Do the cue and stop buttons feel loose or lifeless. If so the linkages could have popped off. You would need to remove the base to check.

    I would like to know the answer to this one too. I have a Toshiba SR F335 where the cuing has stopped working too.

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.

SOURCE: Technics SL-B2 Frequency Generator Servo Automatic Turntable will not play

hello

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..

SOURCE: Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.

http://www.vinylengine.com/library/pioneer/pl-570.shtml
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!!!!!

SOURCE: Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249

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

How do I get the Autocue function to work on the Technics SL-D202 direct drive turntable?


Hi,
When you say that the auto cue does not function properly,do you mean that the arm will not lift from the rest onto the record or do you mean that the set down point of the arm on the record is not correct? Or does it not work at all?

Technics SL-1700 Mk2, tonearm doesn't lower, cueing doesn't work


There's a rubber belt or O ring that broke. I couldn't find one at Technics, so I took the old parts to the hardware store and found an O ring in plumbing parts that was very close. Been working for years just fine!

New cartridge for Technics SL -BD22D


the prestige gold might be a little bit of overkill for this turntable meaning the turntable is middle of the road and the cartridge is hi-end.

To get a closer match for your TT try a yahoo search for "AT3482P-DE" (with the quotes) and the result will be the closest match to what this turntable is designed for. also you can find your TT's owner manual here
http://www.vinylengine.com/library/technics/sl-bd22d.shtml but you will have to register to download the free manual. in that manual you will find the shape of the drawings for the cartridge is the same. both made by audio technica

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

Stylus will not catch


'Skating' is usually due to very low stylus pressure, which can be adjusted using a counterweight.

Is this the picture of the turntable ?
http://www.vintagetechnics.stereomanuals.com/turntables/sldd33.htm
Isn't that a counterweight at the back-end of the arm ? Can't it be rotated ?

If the counter weight is fixed, check the pickup mounting. May be it needs to be adjusted a bit forward (to increasing the stylus pressure).
