Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Opening the PL-Z81 box after standing packaged for quite some time -I saw that the turntable had come apart and that there were four pieces - a silver dish (the turn table) --the rubber mat that sits on top of that dish - a black frubber band and a small round black piece which I think perhaps might be for the large 45 rpm disks (?)--- My question is -- where inside the undercarriage of the turntable is that rubber band meant to go? Is there perhaps a diagram or schema available with specs showing where everything of the turntable goes? Thank you -

Ok! On the main part of the turntable should be a spindle, not the one in the middle! That if you put your finger on will turn. This is the motor. On the underside of the silver dish should be a flange. Place the belt round it and put the platter on the center spindle (the one in the middle). If the platter has a hole in it, grab the belt and pull it, while rotating the platter till you can see the motor spindle. Attach the belt to that. Put the rubber matt on and try it out.
The black piece is for 45's with big holes in them (jukebox ones).
PS if the platter hasn't a hole you will have to put the belt on the motor spindle first and then around the flange (try not to pull the belt to much).
Also some turntables pass the belt via a leaver that lifts the belt up and down for 45 and 33 speeds, others just change the motor speed.

Assembly instructions for dw7350 mobile base

You are correct...the base is not pre-assembled as stated in the instructions. However it is a very easy task. The four base parts slot together in a fairly obvious way. The bolts to use are actually packaged separately and marked as "Bolts for Base". There are four bolts in total. One bolt goes in each corner of the base assembly. I put my bolts through from the bottom with the nuts and lockwashers on top. I did this to minimize the ground clearance although now that it is assembled it probably wasn't necessary. Once the four base pieces are together you can follow the instructions as printed. BTW, when bolting the four upright channels to the base, two of them use the same bolts as the ones holding one end of the "U"-shaped wheel supports. The instructions didn't mention this. It is also fairly obvious. In the end, no problems putting this extremely sturdy stand together. I'm glad I bought this to go along with my planer!

My RYOBI 10IN COMPOUND MITER SAW M#TS1352 is located in my second home and rarely used BUT the turntable has become nearly immovable. Previously, I used another miter saw for three years on a daily basis...

Well funny enough i'm actually the tool technician at a local home depot here in Pennsylvania and the issue seems like a simple oil with love. I prefer PB Blaster to WD40 for some applications, if rust is your issue that is. If it continues to give you a hard time the bolts/screws that hold the guide to the saw and lube them as well. Once you get things moving around again it should be fine. Then it's just maintenance!

A turntable is a precision mechanical instrument as complicated as a mechanical watch. It is very unlikely you will be able to take it apart and get all the pieces back together, even with a service manual, which would cost you more than $50, if you could get it.
I'm sorry to say, unless you live in a big city and can find an old turntable pro it is not repairable. If you have a computer, they make turntables that plug into a USB port.

tilt the saw head and then use a screwdriver to gently pry apart. the bearings in the housings are keeping it from coming apart or the armature and or field are melted causing this, either way the screwdriver trick will work.

It sounds like you are talking about the turntable tray adapter in the bottom.
What usually causes arcing is the reaction of the RF (microwave) energy acting on carbon. It's great that the motor and orifice are OK. Sounds like you just need to replace the T/T adapter. If the paint is pitted or altered, you need to use a special catalytic paint for microwave cavities to touch it up. The paint's main purpose is to protect the metal from rust but it is a high temperature paint to stand up to the higher temperature of that environment.

Dead left channel

I have had the same problem on my 1210 MKII. I have taken it apart a number of times to replace the original lights with LED's, and naturally thought I messed something up in the reassembly. I actually found that the problem was in the connection between the tone-arm and the pick-up "housing".(Pardon my bad english) There is a little rubber band in between, and sometimes you have to unscrew the "housing" flip the rubber band, and screw it back on pretty hard. Also try cleaning the four contact pins before screwing it back on. I have heard of quite a few having this problem. A pretty obvious thing to do, but I had not thought of it, and it would have saved my from taking the entire machine apart several times.
Good Luck
