Most of these very old turntables used an electric motor which turned a rubber wheel that pressed on the rim inside the platter. No spinning would indicate that either the motor has stopped or the rubber wheel is not touching.
As far as service manuals go I doubt you will find anything on line. Your best bet is to go to a main library in some big city that has a section dealing with technology or mechanical engineering. They might have servicing books for Radio and TV engineers for the 1950's which cover the model.

SOURCE: Connect a phonograph turntable to a receiver w/o phono connection

you will need a little box called a pre-amp. This hooks up between the turntable and newer receivers without a phono input. A basic explaination & drawing of this type of setup can be found here

SOURCE: The Radio,Cassette Player/Recorder. and CD Player all work. The Phonograph Does Not!

if it arrived by mail then the sender might have screwed the transit screws down to avoid damaging the phono , i am not familiar with memorex but if like most turntables there should be some big screw heads visible on the top of the phono or possibly even under the platter all you have to do is unwind the screws until the platter unit moves freely [you should be able to push it up and down a little bit ]

Probably a bad relay switch. Open up the turntable. Identify the motor that spins the table. Follow the wires of that motor to, perhaps, some type of little circuit board with a relay. I have a Backley-Cardy 322-487 classroom phonograph which uses a Califone 1620 amp and a BSR turntable. To get the table to spin, you have to move the tone arm. Mine doesn't move and I'm in the process of replacing the faulty relay that is the problem.

SOURCE: I just bought a Memorex

I know this question is old but I work on these specific units and have come across this same problem. What I have found out is there is a capacitor on the turntable motor that is there to reduce any noise that is caused by the motor itself. What I have done is wiggle the capacitor to see if the solder connections are intact. If the connection is loose the capacitor will not filter the noise and the noise is picked up in the CD burner and then recorded on the CD.
To get at the insides of the turntable you need to remove ALL the screws on the bottom of the unit then flip it back over. You will see a split where the front of the unit is attached to the base. Stick a flat headed screwdriver into the slot and twist gently to pop it apart. Then work your way all the way across the top of the front doing the same thing. Once it is free tip up the top half of the turntable to the left and prop it up. The capacitor is on the part you flipped up near the center of the turntable body attached to the motor that drives the turntable. It is a 104k capacitor. There is one on the tape deck motor as well.

I have a vintage RCA Victor turntable from the 50's or 60's. I need to replace the needle housing, but cannot find a model or serial number to look for parts.


Turnatables then used ceramic or crystal cartridges. All you need to do is look for one of them plus something that will fit in the space in the arm. You will probably not find the original cartridge.

There are two motors with beige/tan plastic covers over them, one on turn table platter and the other on the record changer mechanism table. Take the cover off the one on the turntable and spin the motor by hand. Depending on how you spin it the arm will either go back up or down

Why can't I get my regular speakers to work on my turntables?


Yes, you need to connect a turntable to a amplification source. Phonographs send a very low level signal. If you decide to get a receiver/amplifier be SURE it has a PHONOGRAPH input - Many new models do not. If you simply plug it into a receiver without one (and the ground screw) your sound will be unpleasent.

I want to know how to operate iTTUSB.


I think it's plug and play. Plug the record player in the usb slot, let your computer find it, turn on your recording program, drop the needle on the record.
