Question about Philco (R) 841.205 CD Shelf System

Turn Table stopped?

Hello! I bought this player this morning used and it worked perfectly when I brought it home. I only played one record through on it and when the record ended I heard the table stop, so I went over and turned the system off to change records and when I turned it back on the table wouldn't turn! all other functions (cd and cassette) still work just fine but even when I reattach the belt nothing moves! Is there something I may be missing to replace this? I did not drop it/jolt any of the parts between the two records so I just don't understand why one would have played and the next not??

Thanks so much for your help-
Whitney

Hi,

This is for ANY belt driven turntable.

The belt is usually directly beneath the platter (the part your record sits on). If you lift this up and out of the way there are two wheels, a small one from the motor ( less than 1" in diameter) and a larger one (usually more than double the size of the small one). The belt goes on around both of these. So the setup looks like a rubber band between 2 fingers...

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

    unhook it for a day or so it will work fine. I think it has
    somehing to do with a cap inside started to discharge or something and
    it lowered voltage to a chip inside then when power came back it was at
    a low voltage that caused a weird problem. When it sits with no power
    for a longer period it would go completely dead then when it was hooked
    up it was fin like it was new.

    Maybe you didn't have the unit
    unhooked from power long enough for the power to completely drain from
    the unit? let it sit over night or a few days and see what it does.


    If ur problem is not solved yet then you have to go for a replace or call a technician and fix the problem..

Well if you bought this new,i suggest you to go to the vendor for a replacement.The small engine moving the table might be brocken.Ussualy this machines are made by different separate parts which allow them to work independently*like cd or cassete)
bye

RCA rs2130i won't play MP3 or WMA anymore


first the laser may be dirty. you can find lens cleaning disks at any cd store. But have you recently bought a new pack of cds? Sometimes certain CDs just simply dont work with some players. No reason for it they jsut dont work. You could also be using the wrong type of cd, CD+R vs CD-R

I don't know whether your philco is the same as my crosley, but I recently had an issue where the record player stopped turning and it bamboozled me to no end. After digging up the manual online, I found out that you had to lift up the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding clip) until it clicked, and voila, the record player started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

I lost the english version manual just want to know how to record from cd to tape


Try this, select "cd" as your source, and load a cd. Press stop.

Then load a cassette, press play and record for the tape, and then press play for the cd player.

Turntable plays too fast


I have seen this problem before. Lift the turntable off. It might be held down with a clip around the center pole. Under it you will see a wheel that contacts the turn table and the center shaft of the motor. The motor shaft has 3 0r 4 elevations with different diameters. When you change the speed the wheel will move up and down to different diameter levels on the motor shaft. It must be free to move. It might need some oil at the moving parts as I suspect it is not moving properly.
Hope this helps.

I have the same problem on a refurbished unit I bought 2 years ago. I read at the time that this is a common problem and you just need to send to an Onkyo service center. There are links on the Onkyo or ShopOnkyo website.

Lousy design I guess.

Turn Tble will not turn.


open up the top (where the record player is). Take off the pad, then remove the little c-clip surrounding the metal peg (in the center). Remove the turn table. Check underneath to see if the strap/belt is rather broken or has slipped off. If it broke, you have to go buy a new one. If it slipped off, put it back on. Put one end of the belt around the white plastic peg (the one that turns) and then the rest goes around the first outer ring on the bottom of the turn table (the middle one, between the outer edge and the middle insertion area. Its a real pain in the **** to do because it slips off a lot the first couple times...but you will get it eventually :) Once that is done put the table back on, test it, if it works put the c-clip back on (which is a lot harder than taking it off if I do say so myself lol) Put the rubber cover back on and Voila! You have a working turn table. For those with a broken belt use this as a replacement guide :)

Good luck guys and enjoy some good ol' Vinyl cause they are making a comeback!
