I am not familiar with that particular model, but the hum is probably the motor. I would check to see if the belt has slipped off or even exists. I'll look it up tonight and update this if I find out more.

There is an interlock that prevents accidental recording. You may have to press PLAY and RECORD at the same time.

Why won't our arm on our record player advance to play record on auto control? Lifts, moves back and returns to original position.


Try adjusting the counterweight on the back. Average weight setting is 1 gram. most high end RPs have it and it's a 'turn clockwise to increase' deal.
If it's a cheapo, there may be something interfering with the arm. possible a spiderweb inside! or??

ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable, tone arm won't drop


I've got the same problem. When you put therecord on, spin it from the centre, and it will release the mechanism inside,this is what I do, and it works fine. I think the problem is that there are twoplates under the turntable, and there was grease between them, after a few goesthe grease disappears, causing the problem.

Hi just bought a 1960's Telefunken Sonata Console


Multi disc record decks can be temperamental and need maintenance with an experienced and gentle touch - most people just disabled the multichange but the older ones are now collectible and have a following of dedicated enthusiasts.

It was very rare for the appliance manufacturer to produce their own record decks and would buy in something suitable from a specialist company and in that case, once you know the deck manufacturer you should be able to find a dedicated forum where some of those enthusiasts post.

The other alternative is to look around locally to try and find a good radio and tv man who has a long white beard...
