Turntable will not turn

I have reconnected my system - I can "hear" the power when I rub the needle - I know its on, but the turntable will not turn - I checked the rubber under the turntable and it is around the plate and over the gold piece - what is next?

There is one more issue at hand. The platter motor runs on a DC voltage. If everything that Davis said has checked out and nothing is preventing the platter from turning, you are missing the voltage. For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

There is really nothing else to it. If the drive belt is in tact, and properly installed, and the spindle motor is rotating properly, your turntable should rotate. There's nothing else that rotates the platter. Just make sure the belt is wrapped around the spindle motor.

I've just set up my Technics SL D212 turntable after moving house. It keeps skidding across records. I've tried the usual adjustments and leveled the turntable. Any clues?


Please make 100% certain the needle is still in place... To test this *GENTLY* rub your fingertip over it and you should hear noise from the speakers when you do. If there is NO noise then there is likely no needle.
Did you put the protective device on the needle/arm for the move? Is it still on there?
Sorry Mate, that the only thing I've got to help....

Trying to find a way to get the turntable of a Zenith Allegro Console to work. We have turned to whole unit on and off. AM and FM radio plays. Turntable doesn't turn. At the bottom right of the turn...


Lift the turn table off the case and check the belt if it has one or the idler wheel that mechanically turns the table. Also check the motor to see that it rotates when you simulate a record play moving the needle carrier towards the center, The power must be on to test it. Becareful not to touch the 115 VAC line.

Sounds from turntable


There will be some feedback from the turntable, and this is totally normal. Ive actually heard the music from the needle itself, and is nothing to worry about

Tonearm Weight, Good Replacement Stylus, Gain level


Most good turntables will track with weights between 1.25 and 1.5 grams. Any more than that and you are putting alot of pressure on the needle. Experiment a bit and make sure that the needle tracks well and that the sound is good. The less weight you use, the longer the needle will last and the less wear on the record.

My KD-291RC has power but my turntable wont turn. I touch the needle and I can hear its on and when I move the arm towards the record or set it on it it will not turn. Help?


Your turntable is belt-driven, it's likely that the belt just fell off. The belt lives under the turntable. On my turntable (a totally different model) the turntable lifts off.

Turntable wont spin


If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.

Power


You need to check internally, Transformer/rectifier could be bad, disconnected wire, blown internal fuse. Can you rub the needle with your finger and get sound? Is it just the table not turning or is the needle not getting "power" either?
