Re: it wont turn on!!

If the fuse and the voltage are on the correct setting, the only other thing it could be is that the transformer fried, which is a common issue for Numark turntables. You will need to get it replaced professionally, as it is not an easy fix. Expect to spend anywhere from $70-100 parts and labor.

Re: it wont turn on!!

Are you getting no power what so ever from the turntable? No lights, or leds?

I think the motor has stopped working on my pyle pro plttb3u but have no idea how to fix or replace it, any ideas?

See if you can move the platter by hand. If it is very stiff then something will be stopping it moving. If you find the point at which the belt raps around the motor, again try turning it by hand. Put your fingers around the motor spindle. If you can't turn the spindle then the motor is knackered. If the motor turns easily, then it's likely to be a switch somewhere that turns on the motor. If this is the type of turntable that starts when the arm is moved away from the rest, suspect a micro switch connected to the arm is failing to make contact.
The only other thing I can suggest is to remove the underneath of the turntable to check the workings. You might also be able to see the bottom of the motor. If it is a 9 to 12 volt type, you can rig a 9 volt battery to it's terminals. The motor should then turn. If it doesn't then it's faulty.

I bought an Audio Technica AT lp60 belt driven turntable.I live in australia and made the mistake of plugging it straight into the wall with a power adaptor now it won't turn back on. I think I blew the...

Once you find the fuse just take it out and go to your local electrical parts shop. Your looking for the type that sells transistors etc. They should sell you one.

My numark tt1625 blew a fuse,have changed fuse ,but wou'nt turn on now,no red light, any ideas,thanks

Fuses blow when there's an overload. Mostly caused by a semi-conductor device that shorted out. If it's a transistor or diode it will be easy to spot with an Ohm meter as touching the terminals will be just like you have touched the two test probes together!

Power problem, CDJ wont turn on propperly as it is from the US and i live in Birmingham UK

The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.

My 1210 mk3's keep's popping the internal fuse?

Sounds to me like the capacitor across the motor needs replacing. On the + and - on a motor is a capacitor. This might be the problem, replace it as it should not be too expensive, you can never tell. Some times they are a few pence other time they are a few pounds. Why I don't know. If it's a common one, a few pence if it's a rare one, pounds....... I hope this helps.

My turntable doesn't rotate any more...

Hi, the transformer that supplies power to the motor has been fried by the 220v input and will need to be replaced. If you remove it and go to your local electronic parts supplier they should be able to sell you a replacement. Cheers John

My cdj 1000 won't power up keeps blowing fuse inside??

There may be a short somewhere inside that's causing it to draw too much power. If many other people are experiencing the same problem, then it may be a design flaw (like the original Xbox 360s).
As I always say, if it's under warranty/exchange, then just go that route by calling the manufacturer (for warranty) or just exchange it at the store you purchased it from.
If you're a gambling man, or find and understand the schematics, you could try stepping up the fuse to a slightly higher value. This isn't something you should seriously consider unless ALL other avenues have failed, as the fuse blows to protect the rest of the circuit from essentially melting down.

Turntable wont spin

If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.

Vestax pdx-2000mkiipro keeps blowing internal fuses

You have a short in your unit, and you will need professional assistance in determining the cause. You might also want to try a different outlet. If it fails, then you'll need to bring it to a service center for repair.
