Turntable on my memorex mx 5510

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 waltcosmos@gmail.com

thank you,

william dale

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.

SOURCE: Very little sound when playing vinyl on turntable

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

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: recording button can't be pushed down any longer

Oh, I see, you're talking about a cassette player, You are in the wrong section if that's what you're talking about. If thats the case, then the impact of the fall must have jammed it . and you may have to go in and correct it by freeing it up

SOURCE: tonearm on turntable wont stay on record

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.

Where can I sell vinyl records?


Don't expect to get much for them unless they are very rare editions in almost unplayed shape. You can try selling them on EBAY, go to swap markets or flea markets or antique dealers who deal in old radios and record players, or look in your area for used record stores (there are a few still around). Try VinylHunt com Hooking you up with independent record shops since 2006 Find... or Record Stores

Needle jumps on all new vinyl, but plays old records fine. New vinyl plays on other turntables without a problem. Do you have any suggestions?


Adjust the balance force up. This is a counterweight on the back of the arm. For most needles it is 1-2 grams.

Is there any good record players for under 100 pounds? (UK ONLY)


A brand that has a solid reputation but may be hard to find in your area is technics. I would think you could find one to fit in that price range. You could for sure find a Pioneer in that price range and they are not bad at all. These are vintage, not new, I am talking about but they will outperform most consumer made ones of today.

Hi, I have a technics stereo system from 1986.


If the turntable is belt driven you may have a stretched and slipping belt that needs replacement. This seems most likely and is simple to fix. You will have to lift off the turntable to see the mechanism beneath. It may be held on by a nut or clamp. A web search for the model name and "dirve belt" may yield a replacement.

If it is driven directly by a motor without a belt, the motor is probably dying. Replacement more involved, expensive, and hard to justify, unless you're really into vinyl.

Recording in mono and not stereo


Thanks for your rapid response. Fortunately I discovered the problem and was able to resolve it. Whether it is just my computer or all computers I wouldn't know. When I switched my computer off, after recording vinyl to my pc, then switched it back on again my pc had reset the default input so I had to reconfigure it again. Since then I have not used it but wonder if I have to reconfigure the recording device everytime that I switch my computer on. I did make the USB Codec microphone my default recording device and applied the setting but the pc seemed to do its own thing.

All the best

Output from Denon D-700?


Hi ...

If there's a tape monitor in/out on the D700,turn the tape monitor on and connect the "Play out" phono jacks on the 700 to the line-in on the computer. Spark up the turntable and you should be able to listen to the vinyl on the PC while recording.
