Question about Denon DP-300F Turntable

1 Answer

Brand new Denon DP 300F turns extremely slowly.

I have a problem with a brand new one. At first everything was fine. Third disc, all of a sudden it turns extremely slowly. Like a minute per turn type of slow. It seems the motor is turning slowly. It is not a belt issue. Everything is brand new and clean. No grease or dirt or anything mechanical that seems to be in the way. Do you have any suggestion ?

The turntable should be under warranty still so contact the makers and they should sort it out. Any tampering with it could void any warranty so don't let any unathoriesed person touch it.

SOURCE: belt fell off

There are two main types of phonograph turntable drives still being manufactured today, the belt-drive and direct-drive systems; the names are based upon the type of motor system found in each.
In a belt drive turntable the motor is located under and to the side of the platter and is connected to the platter by an elastomeric belt.
The design of the belt drive turntable allows the use of a less expensive motor than the direct-drive turntable. Also, the elastomeric belt absorbs motor vibrations which would otherwise be picked up by the stylus.

SOURCE: platter turns slow

This turntable design has a direct drive system instead of belt drive (two types). If this unit has been in storage for some time, it has most likely been at hot or cold tempuratures - not good for any electronic/mechanical system. 
My guess is that the direct drive motor needs to be rebuilt - internal friction is probably keeping it from operating at proper speed. Best to consult with a repair shop that can handle direct drive turntables - several on the internet, if you cannot find one locally.

BTW: You can find a manual for this at : http://www.vinylengine.com/library/denon/dp-45f.shtml

Best regards,
Andre

Have a brand new Denon DP-300F turntable that worked fine for the first two recods. Now when I use it the records sound as if they are playing in slow motion. Could there be an issue with the belt eve


It could, but it could be caused by something stuck inside it, perhaps from the packing or some other bizarre thing connected with it being transported to your home.

Running VERY slowly


The thing to do is to check the belt first, then look at things like is there a build up of grease dirt anywhere. Clean up the platter make certain no grease or dirt is the works causing it to slow down.
See also that the motor that drives the belt can turn freely and very easy by hand.

In my DENON DP-300F tone arm don't come back after playing record. It just stays in the end of record? How can i fix it?


A lot of decks don't actually do that anyway. But if it previously did this then it's probably a mechanical problem. Removing the bottom of the turntable might show up the cause of the problem.

Denon AVR-2309C1 will not play sound through


Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot
