Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable

Open Question

The arm on my turntable doesn't lift up and return to it's "home"

It will just sit on the inside of the record and spin for hours or days if I forget to do it manually (which I have done). How can I fix this?

What happens if you lift the tonearm and slowly move it over its travel in toward the label area past the expected point at which it should cycle? There should be a mechanical click as it engages the lift / return cycle. If so, the mechanism works but might be out of adjustment due to wear and tear.

Perhaps cycling the Record Size switch a few times might have a positive effect on the function. There doesn't seem to be a user adjustment for the end of play cycle.

If you decide to venture into the mechanics be cautious, always protect the tonearm from damage and make sure you rotate the platter only clockwise as there are mechanical interlocks that could get damaged if you turn it the wrong way.

Turntable arm will not lower - the guide just pushes it back to the off position


Try to do this

1. unplug the turntable
2. raise the arm
3. put it over the record
4. lower it which will not lower you said
5. push the arm to the very end close to the label
6. rotate the turntable by hand and it should take it through the whole return cycle of the arm and lower and finish the motion
7. then plug in and it should come back to normal

The needle arm won't lift and go to the record


Pull the turntable off the mount and look at the loading mechanism, I will bet you will find a broken piece.

How can I stop the tone arm from returning too early on smaller records?


The adjustment for auto return position is normally at the tone arm base on the left side under a rubber grommet. Use a flat blade screw driver to move adjustment screw, then test. Keep fine tuning until arm lifts at desired position. Cheers John. Stylus City NZ

Why douen't my technics turntable spin?


Take off the rubber mat and see if the belt is off the aluminum platter the record sits on you should be able to see the rubber belt when the mat is removed. If it is not there or broke it will need replaced.

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

Aiwa turntable px-e860: Hi, I've inherited this timetable from a friend and it's worked fine until recently but now here's the problem: if I push start, the arm lifts up, moves to the record...


Hi, I;m not familiar with that exact model however the problem you are describing is commonly caused by the automatic operation at some point not being allowed to complete its full operation. Ie the tonearm has been returned manually to its rest position before reaching the end of the record. Try this. With the player not powered up lift the tonearm across to the record run off groove and sit it there. You may feel some resistance which is normal as the mech has to eswt itself. Now turn on the power and turntable. The arm should automatically return from there to its rest. Try auto operation after that. Let me know how you go. Cheers John. styluscity@gmail.com

Hi, Does the arm have a lever to lift the arm up, also called a cue. I had an arm where it did exactly the same thing and found it to be the lifting device. What turntable is it you have?

Tone Arm skips past first song


Hello, A. Do not try to close the case when there is a record inside!! The fact that the turntable cannot do this is not a design flaw--you'll be hard pressed to find a portable turntable that can close with a record inside because if you were to pick up the player with one inside, it could easily slip off of the spindle and scratch against the sides of the player.
B. Are you using the cueing lever to lift the tone arm before you place it on the record? Read the instructions to see where the cuing lever is (it's a little switch on the right side of the tone arm). When you lift it, the tone arm will lift up and allow you to position it wherever you want on a record, then you depress the lever to make the tone arm touch the record and being playing.
I hope that helps!
