Does the platter on the turntable turn? You should be able to make it swing out by hand operation of turning the platter.
If you can do that it's likely that the belt to the turntable is slack and needs replacement.

SOURCE: aiwa lx 70 turntable needle arm

This is not a solution but it is information. I just got one of these turntables and the platter rotates but the tonearm does not move. I took it apart after downloading the service manual and found that there are two small thin rubber belts that due to age have fallen apart and "melt" when you try to pick up the pieces. One controlled the sideways movement of the tonearm "carriage", the other controlled the lifting and lowering of the tonearm. The replacements are expensive (I think around $18 each) and in trying to pop loose a worm gear with a pulley buit into it, so that I could try a cheap rubber band out just to see if the unit would work with new bands, I broke the stiff plastic "retainer" that by its shape was designed to be pushed out of the way a bit to allow the worm gear to be removed. The service manual, by the way, had all sorts of information about how to make fine adjustments, but said nothing at all about how to replace the belts. Unless removed there was no way to put the replacement band in place over the gear/pulley combination because there was no exposed end to slip a complete band over. So I think it was a bad design, made worse by the aging of the components that made the bands melt and the plastic "keeper" brittle so that instead of flexing out the way it broke. So I'm going to recycle the components. I did not find any reviews to tell me how good a component unit this was, so before you hire a pro to try to fix this unit you need to figure out if it will be worth it to you in the long run. Anyway, good luck.

Hi jun_tradjazz,

I have an LX 70. There are two drive belts. They are identical and of a standard size, ie., not specific to Aiwa, Quite few years ago these belts wore out on my deck. They became smooth and the pulley wheels began to slip. I was lucky that a local electronics shop in town (Belfast,NI) had spares and replaced them "off the shelf". Sadly they can't do that now.

There are specialist retailers on the net who provide all sorts of drive belts of this type. The trick is to find the spec! Perhaps, if you contact them, they might be able to match a new belt with one of the belts on your machine.

From memory, replacing the belts is fiddly, but not very difficult if you are patient and examine the mechanism carefully.

Although I now use a Rega Planar 3 with motor upgrade and a Rega Exact stylus , I still love the magic of the LX-100 and cannot bear to part with it. A beautiful piece of design with it's link to the Strathean Audio (a Belfast HI-fi company, now defuct) direct drive system that it employs.

Good luck with your search.

My Aiwa px e860 record player arm is too heavy how do I adjust it?

If you put the maker and model number into Google you will find a service manual free for the make. That should help you sort out the problem. It's just a question of getting the weight at the other end of the arm adjusted right.

I am trying to play a record on my Aiwa LX-120 turntable but after scanning the record the arm won`t go down.

I'm not certain that you are meant to disengage the FG lock since this means that the turntable has achieved the correct speed. The problem you have is that the arm won't go down.
I don't know to much about the workings of this direct drive turntable. But I can say you can get the service manual free on-line if that helps.

Dell optiplex GX280 PC when power on system no noise with fan after one hour making loud noise . I changed the CPU fan , also same noise, and applied heat sink paste to CPU and heat sink same noise....

There probably is another fan, located inside the power-supply, that is making all the noise.

Borrow a stethoscope from a nurse or doctor, and listen to the noise, to pinpoint "where" on the computer that is the origin of the noise.
