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: tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix

I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

SOURCE: BSR turntable how to set Anti-skating control on tonearm

Not all BSR turntables have an anti-skating compensator, but for those that do, it is usually a plastic screw or knob near the rear right of the turntable.

It can be difficult to set it just right, unless you have a grooveless disc to test with. If you do, start the turntable and lower the arm into the middle of it. Turn the control clockwise if the arm slides towards the edge, anticlockwise if it slides towards the centre. Find the position in which there is no slide.

If at maximum anticlockwise the arm still slides in, then the spring is too weak and will need to be replaced.

How to remove Platter on JVC L-A120 Turntable


Hi Jeff...
The platter on the JVC LA-10 does not come off as most turntable platters do. It is attached to the spindle with a Philips head screw.

Here are the steps:
Remove dust cover from turntable. Unscrew hinges and lift.

  • Secure tonearm to prevent stylus damage.

  • Turn the turntable on its side and remove screws that hold the top to its base. Remove platter by unscrewing the bottom plate from the turntable. The spindle bearing is held in place with a Philips head screw. Loosen it and the platter will separate easily from the spindle.

  • Loop replacement band around the pulley cylinder in the motor. Replace platter and bottom plate. Tighten spindle screw. Test the new belt by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. Belt should fit snugly and turn with little resistance.

    How do I adjust the auto return on a JVC A-21 record Player? The auto return keeps returning to the holder after the record finishes but then adjusts itself back twd the record and drops just on the edge...


    Hi, this problem is caused by the cut off switch not depressing far enough to turn unit off. To remedy you need to do as follows.
    1. Disconnect from power supply.
    2. remove platter.
    3. Flip unit over to expose the underside and remove all screws.
    4. Remove base board.
    5. Look at the gearing beneath the tonearm and identify switch that tonearm depresses at the rest point.
    6. Loosen switch retaining screw and turn switch toward centre of turntable slightly until it clicks or closes. Tighten screw to hold switch firmly in place at that point.7. Reassemble and test.

    Good luck. John. Styluscity@gmail.com.

    How do you adjust the tone arm on a Denon DP-47F turntable? Thanks Cosmicharlie


    Basically, like almost any other turntable.

    Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

    Unplug the power to the turntable.
    Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
    Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
    Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
    Set the Tracking and Anti-skating controls to 0.
    Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
    Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
    Return the tonearm to its rest.
    Dial in the prescribed tracking force and anti-skating. Play records.

    I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

    This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

    JVC L-E5 Turntable arm will not move to the record.


    This turntable is linear tracking, meaning that the tonearm slides from side to side. Inside there is a belt coming off a motor and over to a pulley that will move the tonearm from left to right n right to left. If you feel qualified it can be replaced with moderate from the bottom after removing the bottom cover with the power OFF. the belt can be found here.

    Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.


    A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

    Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

    I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.

    Turntable skips during playback


    The only thing I can say is to make sure you set up your cartridges correctly - click HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS on BALANCING YOUR TONEARM properly.

    If, you've balanced your tonearm, and set up your cartridges correctly, then you should not have any problems. Unless, your tonearms are damaged. But this is highly unlikely. I just think you need to balance properly.

    Another note, Ortofon Concorde have a design flaw, in that they don't connect very well to the Technics tonearm. The Concorde's, have short and stubby connections on the rear, making for poor connections to the tonearm. Ortofon has addressed this issue by releasing the Ortofon OM series cartridges, and mount them to standard Technics Headshell.

    If you still can't figure this out, feel free to give our techs a call 24/7 @ 1.866.668.1596 ext 1 - they can walk you through setting up, and properly testing your tonearm to see if it's damaged or not.
