Question about Philco (R) 841.205 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

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.

Motor on philco turntable not working


Most of these motors run on about 9 to 12 volts DC. You can connect a 9 volt battery to the terminals of the motor. Make certain the rest of the system is off and the motor power leads are not connected to the main system. If the motor doesn't turn with the battery it's faulty. If it does then you are perhaps looking at some switch that has failed or the power to the motor itself!

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!

Philco 841.205 Turntable Issues


I take it that it doesn't turn? OK two choices for you. Faulty motor, or a on/off switch that doesn't work. If you have to move the arm to start the turntable then some kind of leaver switch is either bent or broken.
I should imagine this model uses no more than a 12 volt motor. If you have no look with the switch, find the motor and take it out. Then stick a 9 volt battery on it, or lower voltage if it's only 6 volt motor. If it don't go it's bust!

Philco 841.205 TurnTable spring and plastic armature pulled off HELP


Well it turned out that that 45 degree plastic piece DID or WAS attached to the main post. It snapped off. I super glued it back on and to each side of that very flimzy broken plastic I cut two very small pieces of wood (using popsicle sticks) and super glued THOSE to either side of the broken armature piece. Once dried I re-attached the spring and it worksd like a charm.
