SOURCE: JVC - problem. The turntable does not move,

Most modern day turntables are semi-automatic. You move the tonearm from the rest post
over to the record and the platter will start turning. There is a small microswitch inside
either below the arm base or near. There should be a flat bar connected to the base of the arm
and this will actuate the microswitch. The switch is wired in series to the rotation motor.

Solution: 1. Obviously verify the belt is on. Take off the rubber mat and rotate the platter.
The rotation motor is on the left and it has a small brass spindle. The belt should
be visable through the holes in the platter. If not pull the platter gently up, there will
be some resistance. The belt wraps around a smaller inner ring on the underside
of the platter and the rotation motor spindle. If it is degraded it will be stuck to the
platter or fall apart. Generally there 3 common sizes. ( 21.4 / 23.6 / 25 inch) they
readily available on E-Bay, search term "turntable belt".
2. Obviously check power.
3. Check the microswitch, it should "click", verify with ohm meter.
4. Some turntables have a "cut" or stop function. The arm must return first to rest before
starting again, again the microswitch is the trigger.

SOURCE: Record player - sound only plays out of one speaker

Your tracking and anti-skate are not set correctly.

If you have the manual for this unit, it should have directions for setting these.

SOURCE: everything works on my record player but my turntable doesnt spin

This happened to me tonight. I had the same problem, to activate the player on you need to move it to the right until you hear a click. If you don't do it it won't start. Even if all the power is on. This should fix everything!

Increase the weight of the arm, check if it has anti-skate control.

Denon dp-26F when i tried to play a record the arm just skated all the way across the record. is there a way to adjust the arm so it plays correctly?


The short answer is that you need a new stylus as the one you have is either broken or worn away so that it won't stay in the groove. It could also be out of place. Rubbing your finger on the stylus you should be able to feel it digging in. If you can't it's gone!

I just replaced the stylus on my sony PS-LX300USB turntable, but now there is a constant static on even my new records


You have either knocked the connections to the cartridge causing a loose connection, or not seated the stylus right. Or you have static build up, which can be caused by poor earthing.

Unplug everthing. Reseat all connectors, Did you replace the cartridge when you replaced the stylus? If so, verify that the 4 tiny tiny wires and connectors are on tight. Also, some of these turntables have a 'knob' built into the tonearm that you need to twist to release/lock the whole head assembly of the tone arm. Try to see if you have a removable tonearm cartridge assembly and then twist this tight. It sound like its in the wiring from the cartridge to the connectors to your preamp. The levels are so low, that any loose connection will be amplified 100 times.

If your needle skips across the record, then there is only 1 thing wrong with it... it's broken, and needs to be replaced.

If after you've replaced the stylus, and problem persists, then you have something a little more serious... Tonearm damage. More than likely not, but just in case replace the stylus does not help.

Good luck!

Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

Turntable stylus not staying on record


Since there are no tonearm adjustments the only solution in the manual that comes close is to make sure the turntable is level. The other possibility is the no-brainer of checking the stylus cover is NOT rotated down, preventing the stylus from contacting the record.

A quick and dirty test of tonearm balance being too light would be to unplug the power and manually move the tonearm over the platter. Gently lower it to see if it floats in the air or lightly but firmly contacts the platter. That won't tell you if it is tracking properly but it might indicate or eliminate tracking force as the culprit.

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).
