You certainly can replace the drive IC as mentioned above, however there may be dozens of other items that can cause the same issue. Here are some; bad regulator ICs, pull down resistors for the power supply or the drive IC, capacitors in the regulated power supply.....the list goes on and on. You most definitely must take ESD precautions(Electrostatic Discharge). Without taking these precautions, you may destroy the parts you are replacing, before you even put them in! You must be able to perform fine soldering to replace any of these parts.

SOURCE: HOW DO FIX MY NUMARK TTX MOTOR?

if you know how to solder its most likely the toshiba chip under the heat sink, here is more in depth, i wrote this up about 3 to 4 years ago

Ciscoel Nino - "since numark fixed thier overheating problems by adding avent under the platter, i think that what is happeing is that our DCMOTOR DRIVER IC (Toshiba TA7259P) has gone bad what i am going to do itorder this, install it and let you know the deal. there only 5.80 apiece and shipping is like 8 dollars. ill get back to you. I amguessing it is sort of like computers CPU, like its got thermal gel/grease on it and all that fun stuff. It is on the Motor's board heres the image

(IMG:http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/9139/ttx19tl.jpg)

after i install it too, i am also going to cut vents like this under my platter like the updated versions

(IMG:http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/8523/ttxvents8pn.jpg)


also take your time when installing the chip.
1. its sensitive to static.
2.buy a low heat soldering iron.
3.do each solder point at a time, wait a few seconds for the IC to cool off. then approach the next.
also open your ttx and see what exact IC you need. Mine was a Toshiba TA7259P. Also when you order that, order small tube of thermal paste.

Your belt is probably worn and needs replacing. Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

2 problems, 1st turntable run at 45 speed when on 33 setting. 2nd, turntable won't move unless you help it.


It depends if these are belt or direct drive decks. If they are belt, then in the first fast speed one the belt might have slipped and is now on the 45 setting when it should be on the 33 setting.

The other deck has either a really **** belt, or a bad motor, or needs oiling or having grease or muck removed from it's works.


A whole list of problems can make direct drive decks act this way.

Turntable spins to fast.on 33 sounds like its on 45 but on 45 its even faster


Possible that the motor is working with a different speed. It can be fault in the drive, fault in the mechanism.
What is required is the need to remove the TOP plate and look to see the drive of the motor. If there is slipping of the drive it can result in higher speed. If so it can be aligned and corrected.

Brought tt1520 decks on ebay but only one came with a stylus


http://www.numark.com/tt1520
per the numark site this table was sold without a cartridge so it could have almost anything installed. To find the right needle will depend on the cartridge currently installed. Presuming it came with a cartridge from ebay, try to find any part numbers on it and get back to me. If there is no cartridge then you will need a complete cartridge presuming you have 4 wires hanging out the end of the tonearm from the headshell.

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

My decks!


do both of your numarks make the same sound? what is the weird sound? The magnet is 1 piece, so I am not sure if it has come loose - very hard to come loose. Check to see if there is any debris inside the magnet/coil area. Sometimes staples, small metal items get stuck to the platter. Just lift the platter off the turntable, to expose the coil and the magnet. If all is clear, then you obviously have a more serious issue. However, you will have to be more detail in describing what kind of problem your having: - Does your turntable power on? - Does it sound weird when you press the play button or does it make a sound even when the platter is not rotating? - This happening to both turntables? - Did you buy these units new or used? - If used, do you know the history of the turntables? - Does it affect the speed or playing ability of the unit? - Do you use the unit on the road? Move it around? - Did this just start happening instantly, or was it something that just got louder over time? I know it's a lot of questions, but I need as much information as possible to properly source the problem via this limited method. - Justin DJPROAUDIO
