Re: Frozen out the game.

Do the lamps ( 33/45, strobe, pitch at 0, pop up light ) light up when you turn them on. Was the storage climate controlled?

Keep me posted.

No power when plugged in ? Is there a fuse ?

The best way to find out is remove the base of the deck. You should see the power supply then. If the deck is main's powered the transformer will be seen. Some have fuses built into them, so it needs checking. Some decks use a mechanical switch to turn on the motor. That can break or stop engaging. But this will only apply if the deck doesn't have a power light indication. A deck with an on off switch for the power can also suffer a broken switch.

Hi, I have no motor movement. Turned deck on, power is still intact. Pressed start button and got a few shudders of movement, but now nothing. There is no stiffness in the spindle and the platter moves...

As this is a Direct Drive turntable, it may be several problems. Yes, the motor could be bad, have power supply issues, etc. For more information, or should you have any further questions, please visit my website at You may contact me through the website. Thank you.

One of my decks sound louder than the other

I'd say the cartridge is getting tired. Swap the head shells with carts and test. Cheers john. Styluscity

Check the connections at the rear of the cartridge. Something may have worked loose while in storage

When i turn one of my decks on it trips the electric out. ive tried changing fuse in the plug but same thing happens

Something inside your deck is faulty and drawing excessive current. It could be either the transformer or anything to do with the power supply or the motor.

No power in either turntable

maybe the power source that goes into the deck itself has dissconected, but it is strange that niether would im guessing the decks are might be your extension cable...or u have had a power surge, if that has happened...then you need to seek profesinal help...and unfortunally, your decks may have died. But check your plugs/extension should be a basic problem, and easily fixable

No power to the decks

Hi, this is much more than the fuse. im sensing a board issue with a capacitor. there may be a cold solder also that has lost its hold as well. check the board for any lose or cracks. and discoloring.

Deck does not play/turn on

Problem is not the fuses, but the power supply / power transformer has blown. This is why you should always wrap exposed wiring with electrical tape or heatshrink tubing.

The power supply can be purchased HERE, but this is not an easy replacement. And if you blew it by not properly replacing the Pop-up light, than I DON'T suggest you try to replace the power supply on your own either. You could really cause even more damage, and possible harm to yourself and your property.

Your transformer's need to be replaced. This is the big grey metal looking box near the fuses. The fuses do not offer much protection, and the only thing generally affected is the Power Transformer. If you'd like to attempt a repair yourself, here is the part:

Make sure you choose the correct transformer for your model. If you feel you do not have the experience or do not feel comfortable in performing this repair, take it to an authorized service center. We provide Nationwide service, if you cannot find anyone locally:
