    I have the same problem. I just bought mine used and they said it worked great. The CD player has power and the cassette has power but the turntable won't turn. I don't know if I am supposed to flip a switch or if it is just supposed to start automatically when I move the needle over it. Help please?

Need more info....
is the motor getting AC to it?
can you feel any hum or heat on the motor itself.?
Have you tried hand turning the shaft in the motor?

Bushings often totally dry up and have to be re-lubed

    Oh I know exactly what you mean! I took mine to the repair shop and he laughed at me for not realizing that I must gently pull the arm and needle to the right to start the turntable. Then gently move the arm to rest on the album. Write back if this works for you!

Where can I purchase a turntable needle for my philco 841205


What you need to do is look at the cartridge it fits in. It should have a make and model number on it. Put them into a Google search and the cartridge and Stylus should come up.

The arm with the needle slides across the LP record - doesn't pick up sound


This is often a problem when you are using a 78 needle on a 45 or 33 record. Some needles can be flipped, so check to see if yours is able to flip between the 78 and 33 setting. If not, you may simply need a new one.

The turntable on my philco cd cassette and turntable unit does not turn. how to i access the belt, etc. to see whats wrong?


I had a similar issue with my Crosley turntable that I recently picked up... and after digging up the manual online all I had to do was lift up on the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding mechanism) until it clicked, and voila, the turntable started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

Well since we in the UK use 240 volts and over the sea they use 120 volts, it should be no surprise why it no longer works. What the effect is couldn't be any clearer. Since most units only use around 30 volts to work, a transformer is employed to knock the mains down. These have what is known as a primary winding, this takes the mains, however the coil of wire will be designed for the mains it is going to be connected with. If it is connected to one greater they tend to burnt out. Often transformers have fuses built. However they don't tend to be replacable. So you will almost for certain need a new transformer. If you are really lucky a fuse might have been employed in the power leads going to the transformer. As long as it wasn't rated a 250 volts it could have gone and transformer is OK. BUT I WOULDN'T BANK ON IT!
Now you have an option, you could replace the transformer with the same type (which you would need to do for safety reasons) or you can get a very experinced technical person, to replace the transformer with one that will meet safety standards and have a 250 volt primary, for the UK. You can even get them that have two mains, one 250 and one 120!
If you just go for the replacement then you will still need a mains adapter.
PS There might be other damage, such as the mains switch!

How do you get the turntable to start turning? We just got a Philco turntable and can't find a switch to get the turntable to turn. We got it used so don't have the instruction manual.


A lot of turntables start moving when the arm is moved to the record start. The turntable should move when you move the arm to the edge of the platter, even with no record. If it doesn't, listen to see if the motor spins. Then lift up the platter matt to see if the belt has slipped off.

Turntable will not turn


spin the motor between your fingers, sometimes they develope a 'dead spot' if it comes to life let it run for a few hours, this may fix it forever.
