SOURCE: turns off

I had the exact same problem for a while, but was able to fix it. I somehow disabled and turned off the stopping sequence completely by lifting the platter, and rotating the plastic cog counter clockwise to it's limit. Somehow this odd solution worked great. Though I sacrificed the stop sequence, it saved me money buying another one and also the extreme annoyance of the dysfunctional arm.

Record player repair


The top arm that swings over the spindle will control the automatic return. Leave the unit off. Swing the overhead holding top arm over and manually load a record. Now switch the top arm over the niddle spindle. Make sure that the switch is set for 7", 10" or 12" (45, 78, or 33). Manually place the tonearm at the start of the record and flip switch to 'play' (not reject or auto). It should play the whole record and automatically eject at the end and then shut off. Leave the arm swung over the middle after you loaded the record. Good luck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi, if it's a second hand device. there must be something wrong with the arm at it's moving axe. if something (dust or broken support) is blocking it, it will return automatically to its rest position to avoid any damage to the fragile and sensible "head"

This printer appears to be faulty, I suggest you return the printer to the supplier for a replacement or repair as it is under warranty. If you try to repair it yourself, you most likely void your warranty.

It seems like you need to adjust the pitch control. Try looking at the platter strobe light and seeing if it is at the correct speed. If not adjust the pitch control until you can see the dots align. As for the not returning, your automatic motor may be busted.

Tone arm comes out and touches record, then goes back to cradle


See what kind of arm position sensing elements are used in your turntable (micro switches, optics or possibly other) and check if they work correctly - sometimes a microswitch can be damaged or have oxydized internal contacts or a badly soldered / broken wire and it will not function properly, causing the unit to stop automatically, the same might happen if the sensor is of optical type and there is some dust or broken wires or if the emmiter or sensor is damaged. Also, it could be a problem with the part that activates the switch / optics, it might be displaced or damaged.

If all sensors / switches seem to work well, then check the section which has wires going to those sensors / switches, it's the next probable location of the fault (it might be an electronic controller so there could be damage to some components, broken wires, dirty connectors or bad solder contacts).

It could as well be something else in the mechanisms, wiring or electronics, i just suggested a few things that might cause the malfunction you described.

Hope you can get it fixed.

Did the problem exist on its own uncorrelated to anything you may have done?

Does it return and cycle itself off or is it just rebounding aimlessly?

Unfortunately, there are no user adjustments for tracking, antiskate, end-of-play-return, etc. The only recommendation from the manual is to make sure the turntable is level and the records are clean and unscratched.
