Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I'm having problems with my Soundesign turn table... After finishing a record it auto-returned the stylus, and since then the turntable won't turn. I can't remove the platter, however I can lift it up enough to where I can see the belt is still on it and on the motor. What can I do to get it turning again, and/or how can I open it up? Thanks!

I actually had the same problem with my soundesign. Really sucks that we can't remove the platter. However... I just jiggled mine for a while and it started working again. I know that doesn't sound like a real solution, but I would just try playing with it for a while. Mine worked after that..
Do you by chance have any idea how to get closer to the belt? Mine is having a speed problem and needs adjusting but obviously the platter is a ***** to take off.

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 does my crosley turntable not turn when I put the needle down on the record


If you manually put the needle on the record, you still have to push the power on button. If you are using the auto on and the turn table isn't turning, either the band from motor to turn table broke (or came off) or the motor for turn table stopped working. All this is as long as there is power to the unit.

How do I adjust the auto return on a JVC A-21 record Player? The auto return keeps returning to the holder after the record finishes but then adjusts itself back twd the record and drops just on the edge...


Hi, this problem is caused by the cut off switch not depressing far enough to turn unit off. To remedy you need to do as follows.
1. Disconnect from power supply.
2. remove platter.
3. Flip unit over to expose the underside and remove all screws.
4. Remove base board.
5. Look at the gearing beneath the tonearm and identify switch that tonearm depresses at the rest point.
6. Loosen switch retaining screw and turn switch toward centre of turntable slightly until it clicks or closes. Tighten screw to hold switch firmly in place at that point.7. Reassemble and test.

Good luck. John. Styluscity@gmail.com.

My SounDesign Player Turntable System will power up but the platter won't spin.


Try to lift the table (it might have a "c" clip lock in the center) and check the belt or idler tire on the bottom of the table.

TONEARM DOES NOT RETURN AT FINISH OF RECORD MODEL PS-X7


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6g9rQRF9M The Levitator is a tone arm "auto lifter" for turn tables and record players that do not have an "auto-return" feature, or has one that is broken. If your needle rides in the "wax trail-off" area of a record it can damage the needle, along with making a horrible noise. It is not enjoyable to have to babysit your records and manually take your tone arm off the record the moment it is done. The Levitator does it for you so you can relax and go about your business. When the record is done the tone arm trips the lever triggering the lifter to raise your tone arm/needle off the record. It is designed with adjustable height to fit any turntable. These are available for sale through Ebay,or please see video to order your own.

I have an older 78 record, and the arm automatically returns before the recorded track is finished playing. Anyway I can bypass the auto return?


There should be some kind of screw on the arm to adjust it. You might have to experiment, or get a service manual. When adjusting, try doing it without the platter powered, by hand movement only.

Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.


A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.
