The arm on my phonograph moves to the center of the record and does not play.

When I place the arm of the phonograph player on the beginning of the record... it immediately slides to the center of the record. I've placed weights on the arm to keep it from sliding. it didn't work. what next??

Hi, the black disc is a spacer for use with records that have a large hole in the centre designed to be played in a jukebox. Have you removed the stylus and checked the tip. It sounds to me like the tip has broken off. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

How does one get the phonograph to work? I can't find the manual and I can't get the phonograph to start rotating.


if you have it plugged into the power source,and cannot see an on/off switch, it may well start up by moving the arm onto the record

The Radio,Cassette Player/Recorder. and CD Player all work. The Phonograph Does Not!


if it arrived by mail then the sender might have screwed the transit screws down to avoid damaging the phono , i am not familiar with memorex but if like most turntables there should be some big screw heads visible on the top of the phono or possibly even under the platter all you have to do is unwind the screws until the platter unit moves freely [you should be able to push it up and down a little bit ]

Playing to the end of the record


I LOVED the 40bs, and if you look at the size selector, which is located at an angle to the right side at the front along with the manual or auto setting in the front. There are 4 settings, 78-10, 45-7, 33-12, and 33-7 for the speeds and sizes of the recordings.

Won't start


I had the same problem with the arm constantly starting and stopping, and the suggestion above works. Despite, I was a little confused on how to do it. Here's what I did in detail:

- Remove the turntable mat.
- Unhook the belt and remove the turntable platter.
- Once the platter's removed, you should see two plastic white gears in the middle. Rotate the center gear clockwise until its tab hits the larger gear. The center gear should move freely and without resistance until you hit that gear.
- Put the platter back, making sure to re-hook the belt around the spindle.
- Put the mat back.

After that, you should be set!

Tone arm is hard to move and when it's placed on a record the needle sticks at on spot on the record. the same needle and record plays fine on other technics 1200 mk5. seems like the arm has resistance in...


You have a bad tone arm. I have the same tables. You need to get it repaired if under warrenty. Or there is a service manaul online you can get from ebay. Service center for our tables is Panasonic.

I had the same problem on mine. But while it is in the shop they recalibarte it

Early tone arm pickup


On some record players there is an adjusting screw at the back of the tone arm that adjusts the tone arm drop in location but I don't think it will adjust the pick up point. That is controled by a steel rod under the record player deck that moves over and pushes a little trip lever near the center of the platter so that a gear is engauged and the end of record cycle is started. I'm not sure but you may be able to find an adjustment under the deck that is near the rotation point of the tone arm that will adjust that rod so that it will pickup later. Hope this helps some.
