Specifically the turntable AF-829:
I had exactly the same problem, and fixed this succesfully.
The problem is in one of the opto-coupler combinations (LED + LDR).

There are two, both located in the mechanical part of the turntable:

1. The first is for the detection when the arm reaches the end of the record, so that it will return to base. This is a red LED with an optocoupler in a little black case. This is OK.

2. The second one is for detection that the arm has reached the beginning of the record area. You can test this by manually pulling the arm from base and moving it towards the record. Then the turntable should start to rotate. You will see it does not.
The problem is that either the LED has not got enough light-emission any more, or the LDR has become more insensitive. It's a transparent LED that radiates RED light.

I replaced the LED by a new (red) one with higher light output, and now it's working fine again.

Good luck!

Marcel.

Arm stuck in middle of turntable won't move forward or return to rest


if the arm is automated and someone forced it to move, it could be that a gear is jammed. Open the unit to access the mechanical mechanisms and look for any stuck gears or pieces, turn on the unit and see that the motor is attempting to respond.

Technics SL-10 does not rotate


OK a blast from the past. There is a switch that is in the base which senses that the cover is closed and this unlocks the arm and disk motor can rotate. The reason that the disk rotates when the cover is up is because this allows the disk to spin up to speed before the arm comes down. Once the cover comes down the switch unlocks the arm and the arm then moves this switch also can stop the disk if the arm does not unlock.

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.

B&O Beogram 2000 turntable arm won't go down


Check to see if there is a cueing lever that is holding the arm in the up position.  If no cueing lever and it has worked recently then something has happened to the changer mechanism.  Open the bottom and look to see if there is an obvious problem like something stuck or broken.  You may be able to make the mechanism go through its cycle slowly by rotating the platter with your  hand so you can see where it is getting stuck.

Tonearm on turntable wont stay on record


Remove the motor assy and you will see the main nylon large gear, it had 2 metal cams under the one screw on top of it. One is the start cam and it must slide freely on top of the other one cam. Over time the grease binds up under the start cam and it doesnt move back in as the motor moves the nylon cogs around and so it start over gain and again. Degrease and lightly lube the metal cam so it moves freely by using your finger, reassemble and test.

Turntable start switch does not engage


Actually, you start the turntable by moving the tone arm AWAY from the center.
