How to fix my thorens TD 158 turntable that doesn't start automatically?

If the device opertated after you moved something then the chances are there is a switch attatched to the device you moved. This might have either got bent out of place or broken completly. Generally removing the bottom cover will reveal the inner workings. Where you can look around for the switch etc.

Thorens volume issue

You probably need to get a magnetic cartridge preamp to make it work. This will connect between the two.

Thorens TD190 speed problem

Depends if it is a belt drive or direct drive turntable. Most problems like this on a belt are caused by the belt itself, which will be found by lifting the platter matt up. If you need to replace the belt make a note of how it fits before removing it. You can find the belt by searching first for the make/model number and the word "belt". If that doesn't find it, measure in MM the diameter of the belt. You might also need to measure the thickness. Put that into Google with the words "turntable belt". You don't have to spot on with the measurements. Just get the nearest to yours.
If it's a Direct Drive, then that will be an electrical fault, so it might need the attention of a trained engineer.

Easrly stop

You will have to disengage the mechanical switch off lift. Pretty nice for an automatic turntable.

Keep me posted.
