    The turntable now goes around. However, the operation lever will not move from Stop to Start to get the whole process moving. Any ideas?

THERE IS A 3/4 CLIP THAT HOLDS THE TURNTABLE, SO IT DOES NOT COME OFF OF THE CHANGER. THAT CAN BE FROZEN TO THE LOWER SECTION.
(1) CAN YOU SPIN THE TURNTABLE WITH YOUR FINGER? (YES) (NO)
(2) DO YOU HAVE TO FORCE IT TO MAKE A 360 DEGREE REVOLUTION????? (YES) (N0)
(3) IF IT TURNS FREELY, AND YOU PUT THE
LEAVER IN ==MANUAL== 33 1/3 DOES THE TURNTABLE SPIN, BUT WILL NOT PLAY RECORD AT THE 33 1/3 SPEED., IT TURNS SLOW.

Does old Zenith Allegro Console Stereo - 8 track/AM/FM/turntable, have a belt drive phono? I can see metal gears to drive the stuck turntable .


The manufacturers of such items would usually buy in such hardware as record turntables from fairly standard catalogues.

One popular brand of turntable was the BSR but the design of other brands were similar. The metal gears aren't for driving the turntable but to drive the multichange mechanism so when one record has finished playing another will drop from the stack loaded onto the extended centre spindle.

This type of turntable is driven by a synchronous motor with a multidiameter spindle via a moveable idler wheel equipped with a soft rubber tyre. Lack of maintenance causes many problems and as the rubber tyre ages it tends to harden and lose traction on the inside of the steel turntable so when the record reaches the end and the metal gears engage there is insufficient torque and everything stops.
It is for that reason many older examples have had the multichange removed or disabled.

Removing the turntable centre motif should reveal a circlip which when removed will allow the turntable to be removed for maintenance.

I need a service manual for the BSR McDonald CA 50 turntable


BSR tended to make old style turntables, ones with a 78rpm speed on. I don't the model in question, but if it is a one of these, there's not much to them. Basically a rubber tyre runs inside the rim of the platter, while the tyre is pushed on a mains powered motor, in at least 3 different positions (depending on the speed). The tyre moves up and down depending which speed is selected.
Speed faults are caused by either a bad motor, or muck, oil, or grease in it.
A faulty tyre that is worn and doesn't push on the motor or platter anymore or not hard enough. Plus of course tyre height setting wrong.

I have a BSR C197 Turntable that won't switch from "off" to "on". It just sticks on off. Everything turns manually, but I cant move the little lever from off to on.


You will need to open the deck up from underneath. This should reveal some mechanical cause as to why the switch does work.

Bose 901 Active EQ Loop


There's good news and bad news. The bad news is that a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. For one thing, the other speakers around the room are not designed to recieve its Active Equalization and for another, if you engage your Tape Monitor you will not be able to play digital sources. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on my receiver it disables any digital inputs.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great!

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers. You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).

Run the dbx and BSR in tandem with each through the tape monitor loop on the receiver but be advised you can only use them on analog source stero material. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread the sound around the room.

At my PC workstation across the room I have a stack of analog processors and sources including dbx 3bx-ds, dbx 120x-ds, BSR Spatial Enhancer, BBE 462 Sonic Maximizer, SS-525x EQ, Carver C-9, dbx-224x, JVC cassette deck, Dual 1249 Turntable running through a Garrard MRM-101 Preamp, Pioneer PDR-509 CD Recorder and the Media Center PC stereo analog channels all running through a dbx 400x Program Route Selector (a godsend) which is attached to my ONE TAPE MONITOR on my Pioneer VSX-36TX Receiver. Of course, I have some of my analog processors running in tandem, too, since the 224x only has three processor and three tape loops.

For listening/recording anything 2-channel analog I engage the stack through the Tape Monitor. For everything else I turn the Tape Monitor off. The nice thing about the stack being separate is that I can doodle with recording and use headphones while the TV/DVD/Blu-Ray do something else.

Could be a bad patch cord, a setting on the mixer, a faulty mixer (unless it works ok with other amps), or a dirty control on the Sony amp if it has analog controls. Have you tried connecting other sources to the Sony?
