Re: nad turntable

The belt (aka rubber band) should be changed when it starts to slip
it is not whats causing the table to turn backwards. it's the motor or circut that drives the motor.

How do I set-up my NAD 533 turntable for initial use???

This Turntable looks nice. The belt goes around the two spindles [one big one small. the speed is adjusted by choosing which part of the small spindle you put the belt on. The upper platter rests on the big spindle and doesn't seem to be secured to it.
The counterweight should simply screw onto the back of the arm.
Manual can be found here:'s%20Manual.pdf

Turntable must be started by hand

This sounds like the stepper motor that drives the turntable is failing. Are there any good DJ shops near to you?

On/off switch needs replacing

Does it have a physical switch for on/off power, or are you referring to when you move the tonearm over the record? For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

Where can i get a on/off switch for a NAD 5120 turntable?

You will have to match it up to something that's currently available, as NAD is long out of business. For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

I have a NAD 5120 turntable. When the head liftes to play,it connects on one channel and the unconnected side makes a "mmmm" sound. What do i needs to change? Or is this the end?

This may not be the end. Check the connections at the rear of the cartridge. They have a tendency to work loose over time

I have a NAD turntable. I have noticed that on occasions there seems to be a background crackle.. Thought it was dust at first !! Have swapped the connection over where the turntable plugs into the amp....

Either you have a poor earth connection or you are getting a lot of static from the records you play. The best way of getting rid of static is a spray you can get for cleaning records. Search on-line for Anti-Static Record Cleaner.

My left channel goes out on my 533, when I touch the RCA in the back, it comes back on for a few minutes then cuts out again???

You need to replace the RCA plug with a new one. If it is on a seperate cable replace the lot, if not cut it off. There are only two wires one earth and the channel, you can't go wrong.

My very old NAD 5025 got a hum noise problem

Check the motor shaft. It could be bent making the pully wobble which makes the whole turntable vibrate which gets passed through the needle. I just found this out on mine. Easy way to test is to hold the platter while the needle is resting on the record. The speakers will hum/wobble at a low frequency. Lift the needle off the record and the sound stops? It's the motor...
