SOURCE: have old sansui automatic direct

Hi harryhihatt

Found one for you here

It is type SNP313 and is specific to your particular cartridge fitted to your T/T Where abouts in the world are you, there are a few aftermarket sources I could try for you also. BUT the audio technica is a good brand. I would go for that.

A FixYa rating would be awesome for my solution here, hope you get your vinyl spinning again real soon. :)

My marantz tt 155 turntable won't turn. is there a turntable lock? or is the only other reason a broken belt? thank you.


Could certainly be a broken belt. Lift record tray and look to see if belt has fallen off or has basically fell apart. Belts can be purchased at Marantz.com. If no belt could be a bad motor. Same website.

There should be a "C" clip on the center post that holds the record in the middle. Pop that off and gently wiggle table up. Careful not to over stretch the belt. There could be a cover over the clip.

I have a Bang&Olufsen Beogram


Similar to most Beogram 1800, the RX 2 featured record sizing by weight. When Play was selected, the centre part of the platter would raise gently, with only just enough force to lift a 45RPM single. An LP would be too heavy to lift, so the mechanism would set itself to 45RPM and 18cm if the record lifted, 33RPM and 30cm if it did not. The speed control keys could then be used to override the choice for non-standard records. The parts could also detect if a record was not present, and prevent the turntable being activated
Just put lp on and it should work

I have a older model record player/8-track/cassette/radio stereo. It have been in an attick in the box for many years. The record player does not turn - it is very stiff. I can manually turn it with my...


A combination of heat and dirt is "public enemy #1" for electronic devices. Most people's attics are loaded with both.

A thorough cleaning followed by careful lubrication may bring the record player or "turntable" back to life - but it will most likely need to be done while at least partially disassembled. A few drops on the center spindle from above is no guaranty that the oil will seep underneath the platter - as most are solid parts. You didn't include a name and model number so I can only speak in generalities rather than specifically to your model.

Much of both the tape drive mechanisms rely on rubber drive belts. These belts look like simple rubber bands but are not (and will not work when replaced with rubber bands either - I know - I've tried). The drive belts, like most simple rubber bands will dry out very quickly and break in the extreme heat found in attics in the summer. Similarly, many turntables are belt driven, too. The belts for those, while longer and thicker, will suffer the same fate in those conditions. Inspection and replacement of these belts seldom can be done without some dis-assembly. The turntables that are direct drive do not have these belts. The drive motors for both types of turntables may benefit from one or two drops of sewing machine oil (or other light, thin oil) applied at the point the drive shaft meets the motor housing. Anything that turns or rubs against other moving or stationary parts can also receive a single drop of oil. Do not over do it - and wipe away excess oil as oil attracts dust and dirt.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Technics SL - 110R recoed deck screeches after playing for 5 mins - may need a new band? can anyone advise who could supply and repair it?


A drive belt would effect the speed of the player not its quality. Also, I believe that the model you posted is a direct drive unit which would not have a belt. There is something else going on here. It is possible that the cartridge has a problem. This could explain the sound you are hearing. It soulc also be within the receiver that you are using. I would suspect a problem with the receiver before the turntable. The Phono input at the receiver has an extra stage of amplification that can be failing. I would try the turntable on another receiver first.

Have a Sansui compu edit p-m70 turtable. I turn


Lift off the turntable mat and the platter. Near the tone-arm, remove two screws holding down a panel and then inspect the tonearm belt. They wear out and stretch out and this could be the problem. Replacement is easy and does not require any special tools or further dissasembly.

Lock light indicates that turntable platter speed has reached correct speed.

Record player not working


Hi Allan,

Unfortunately it sounds like the belt either broke or is slipping. If you're up to it, you can order a replacement belt from a few different places online. As I haven't messed with a turntable in years, I can't make any personal recommendations. A quick google search returned this company, though... http://www.turntableneedles.com/

You'll need the current belt measurements before you order a replacement. And, disassembling the unit will confirm if the belt is broken or just slipping. (Or, better yet, slipped off the pulleys!)

Keep in mind that replacing the belt can be a daunting task.

Good luck!

Turntable won't turn


Hi!

Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!
