Question about Memorex Audio Shelf Systems
Hello. I have a memorex mx 5510 home stereo system. I rarely play vinyl records but when I do, turning on the turntable is always hit and miss and I'm never sure exactly what I did this time to make it work.
Right now, I have the Phono/Aux button pressed and it is the only one that has a red light behind it, lit up. The other three buttons (tuner/band, cd and tape) all show green lights.
The note on underneath the clear plastic cover over the turntable says EXACTLY the following words:
Before first time play with record, motion tonearm forward spindle. Kept turnable auto stop. The motion tonearm back to rest-position. Note: To start operation lift tonearm from the rest.
Those are the exact words, including the word "turnable" which I assume they meant "turntable".
So with the machine on, I move the tonearm over the rest-stop, over the turntable, all the way to the upright central spindle and slightly beyond but the turntable never starts turning. I'll even give it a little help but it doesn't matter. I've spent a good 15 minutes trying all sorts of combinations to no avail. I'm at waltcosmos at gmail dot com. That is email@example.com
SOURCE: Technics SL-10 does not rotate
OK a blast from the past. There is a switch that is in the base which senses that the cover is closed and this unlocks the arm and disk motor can rotate. The reason that the disk rotates when the cover is up is because this allows the disk to spin up to speed before the arm comes down. Once the cover comes down the switch unlocks the arm and the arm then moves this switch also can stop the disk if the arm does not unlock.

Hi Lazman, I don't know specific to the 6250, but I think in general you need a "pre-amp" for a phono to work. They are not that expensive. Cindy

Remove the motor assy and you will see the main nylon large gear, it had 2 metal cams under the one screw on top of it. One is the start cam and it must slide freely on top of the other one cam. Over time the grease binds up under the start cam and it doesnt move back in as the motor moves the nylon cogs around and so it start over gain and again. Degrease and lightly lube the metal cam so it moves freely by using your finger, reassemble and test.

Have you looked at the manual? This unit only records on CD-R AUDIO blank media. (Page 44)
