Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My Thorens TD 240-2 Turntable sometimes autostops before the end of a track when playing certain 78 RPM. As certain tracks are long, the end of the track is close to the center of the turntable. That results in an autostop of the turntable. How can I set the distance to the center of the autostop ?

I can't guarantee anything, but look up and call Stereo Component Systems in Boston Ma. When I was there, they still had quite a bit of Thorens parts available.

There's either a lot of grease or something in the motor, or the motor control circuit has a fault on it. Try spraying the motor with Servisol Video 40 first. (available from Maplin UK or Radio Shack USA).

Hi, they are not an auto start model turntable. To start lift tone arm off rest and move into position at start of record. It will automatically lift and return to rest as well as shut off at end of record. cheers john ,, Styluscity.com
