Re: Numark TTX Turntable

Just so you know, there is no actual 'motor' driving the platter. It's a direct drive unit, so it's made up of various circuits driving the unit.

With that said, anyone of those circuits could have gone bad. The good thing, is that most of the circuits (resistors, IC's, capacitors, diodes, etc), are relatively cheap ($2-10), the bad thing is replacing them, and finding out which ones are faulty. You could usually tell which resistors are burnt or caps are blown, but it's harder to test the IC's without the proper equipment.

This is not a cheap turntable, unless you think $300 is cheap for a turntable. Repair wise, your probably looking at about $80-120 for parts and labor. It's a well build turntable, and I think worth investing in trying to get it repaired. Just make sure you get an estimate before any work is done.

Vintage turntable turns slow for few minutes then speeds up,,,why

The tubes are only in the audio amp portion of the stereo, and have nothing to do with the motor that turns the turntable.

Most likely it's that the grease on the motor is old and gummy, but becomes less viscous when it warms up.

Numark TTX-1 turntable starts slow but then is okay.

A drop or two of light oil at the center of the spindle will surely solve the problem.Remove the platter and check if its clean

Numark ttx wont spin

some tables require the tonearm to be over the record area before the patter starts to spin. If thats not it, have you tried "jump starting" the platter with your finger? the direct drive "stepper" motor might be confused as to where it is at the moment. and finally remove power from the wall for a few minutes then retry.

Numark ttx turntable

More than likely the drive IC (integrated circuit) has shorted, and needs to be replaced. Not an easy fix, and you'll have to take it to a service center for replacement.

This is a common problem on this turntable.

Numark TTX1 Turntable Problem-Platter stops

This is a drive issue. Unfortunately the TTX direct drive system isn't the greatest. It's good, but it's no Technics 1200. The only way to 'fix' this issue is to have a professional look at main circuit board to see if there are any components which are burned, or damaged in any way.

Hope this helps some.
