Remove the 'E' clip at the center of the turntable. Cup your hand around it and pop it off with a screwdriver. It can fly across the room. Clean the inside rim of the turntable, the rubber drive wheel and the motor post. If you can find "Vita Drive" that's best but Radio Shack will have something comparable. Make sure there is NO film left on any surfaces. At WORST, you will have to replace the drive wheel.

I have an old record player. It was made in the 80's according to my mom. I have recently started to use it( it hasn't been used since 86). With the exception of 45s, the record player will only play side...


I must say I have never come upon a record deck that will only play one side of a good condition record!
The only action I can suggest is to replace the belt if it's a belt driven deck. Please make a note of how it fits before removing the belt. But why any record deck would treat a new record any different on one side than the other will be a mystery to any good engineer.
The only exception would be if the deck played one side good then played up on every other record. Till it's switched off for a while, then repeats this action.
The cause of this fault would be a part overheating the longer the deck is left on. When you stop it to turn over, the system fails. This is however more likely to happen on a direct drive turntable, not a belt driven one.

I have a JVC turntable and an old Sansui reciever. Last night I was playing a record, and it stopped playing out of one speaker, and makes a loud buzzing noise. However, when I push the Mono button


You should check the connections to the turntable, it sounds like it might be feedback hum, caused by a wire touching or something like that. Don't forget to check the connections to the cartridge too.

When playing a record the needle gets stuck at the same place, near the end f the record evevry time. Does not matter what record. Happens with all of them.


I don't know the AT PL50 but I had a similar problem with another make of turntable.
The problem was caused by the rear end of the pick-up arm hitting the side of the perspex cover. The solution was a simple one - leave the lid in the raised position or lift the cover right off when playing records.

Turntable will not turn (spin)


It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.
