Cr79 tone arm stops too early

The tone arm automatically stops before the record has finished, why is this the case? If there is no other solution, is it possible to disable the automatic stop?

I have a 1956 stereophonic Motorola record player, and it turns off right when I press "on" I noticed that the record speed was 33 1/3 I used 33. Does this make a difference??

I started having this problem with my Crosley. The automatic stop occurs because the tone arm is attached to a pivoting arm (the white plastic apparatus on mine) that switches the power on and off. When the arm moves toward the center, the pivoting member moves closer to the axis of the platter. When it gets close enough, a ridge on the axis presses the pivoting arm, thus turning it off. The works seem to be calibrated for a standard size records; the 45's I was playing had grooves too far in, so the power was cut before the records end. There may be a way to readjust the point when the pivot comes into contact with the ridge on the axis. However, in a fit of pique and concern that the record could be damaged (not to mention my irritation at the sound of a record coming to a dead stop), I did disable the automatic stop. To do this, file off the ridge, which is the raised line on the black cylinder portion of the platter. You'll have to remove the platter, of course, which can be done by taking off the c-shaped pin which is around the metal axis at the center of the platter. Hope this helps.

The tone-arm on my turntable automatically stops too early. Is there any way to fix this?


Yes. you need to set the travel on your arm. I don't know your specific model but they are all the same concept. On the back by the pivot point there should be a small screw that you can adjust the travel before it returns.

How can I stop the tone arm from returning too early on smaller records?


The adjustment for auto return position is normally at the tone arm base on the left side under a rubber grommet. Use a flat blade screw driver to move adjustment screw, then test. Keep fine tuning until arm lifts at desired position. Cheers John. Stylus City NZ

TONEARM DOES NOT RETURN AT FINISH OF RECORD MODEL PS-X7


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6g9rQRF9M The Levitator is a tone arm "auto lifter" for turn tables and record players that do not have an "auto-return" feature, or has one that is broken. If your needle rides in the "wax trail-off" area of a record it can damage the needle, along with making a horrible noise. It is not enjoyable to have to babysit your records and manually take your tone arm off the record the moment it is done. The Levitator does it for you so you can relax and go about your business. When the record is done the tone arm trips the lever triggering the lifter to raise your tone arm/needle off the record. It is designed with adjustable height to fit any turntable. These are available for sale through Ebay,or please see video to order your own.

Tone arm comes out and touches record, then goes back to cradle


See what kind of arm position sensing elements are used in your turntable (micro switches, optics or possibly other) and check if they work correctly - sometimes a microswitch can be damaged or have oxydized internal contacts or a badly soldered / broken wire and it will not function properly, causing the unit to stop automatically, the same might happen if the sensor is of optical type and there is some dust or broken wires or if the emmiter or sensor is damaged. Also, it could be a problem with the part that activates the switch / optics, it might be displaced or damaged.

If all sensors / switches seem to work well, then check the section which has wires going to those sensors / switches, it's the next probable location of the fault (it might be an electronic controller so there could be damage to some components, broken wires, dirty connectors or bad solder contacts).

It could as well be something else in the mechanisms, wiring or electronics, i just suggested a few things that might cause the malfunction you described.

Hope you can get it fixed.

The tone arm will not drop on our Technics sl-dd33 turntable.


Have you left the tone arm lift in the up position?
If not: At the end of a record the mechanism lifts the tone arm, returns it to the rest, lowers it and switches off the motor.
It the motor has stopped too early, the tone arm will remain raised.
You can try gently rotating the platter clockwise by hand. This may allow the return cycle to finish.

Early tone arm pickup


On some record players there is an adjusting screw at the back of the tone arm that adjusts the tone arm drop in location but I don't think it will adjust the pick up point. That is controled by a steel rod under the record player deck that moves over and pushes a little trip lever near the center of the platter so that a gear is engauged and the end of record cycle is started. I'm not sure but you may be able to find an adjustment under the deck that is near the rotation point of the tone arm that will adjust that rod so that it will pickup later. Hope this helps some.
