Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable
I'm looking at buying a used SL-BD22 and when I went to test it out, picking up the tone arm to start the turntable, it stops just as you position the tone arm over the turntable. Is there a sensor that only allows it to keep running if there's a record on the turntable? Or is this a piece of junk that will only cause future frustrations...
I am not particularly familiar with this model but if you have to have a disk on the turntable in order for it to run (a safety for stylus protection perhaps) why not just put on a disk and see? This feature would be a fairly complex one (photosensor perhaps) and I would not expect to see it on an inexpensive piece. Likely as not this has to do with a switch inside probably activated by a cam wheel (used in the raising of the arm at the end and returning the arm to rest) that is not set right. This cam or some link to it may have a problem which need to be addressed. All this I grant is speculation which would become clear if I saw the unit but unfortunately that is not an option. As to whether its a piece of junk, I wouldn't buy it unless I thought I could make it work. Paying any real amount of money to another to fix it makes little sense to me.
