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....

Turntable will not rotate when in "Phono" mode


I recently was given my Father's CR78CD and, assuming your unit is in working order, you turn on the turntable motor by lifting the tonearm off the post and moving it away from the turntable about one and a half to two inches. You should hear a soft click as the switch for the motor activates.

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.

I have a technics 1200 mk2 turntable. It turns on properly, and appears to work, but when I place the needle on the record, I get nothing through the speakers. I don't know if the connection is being...


Turntable signal problems are difficult to locate because of the extremely low signal levels. Are you sure that you have the output of the turntable connected to a Phono input? If connected to a standard AUX or Tape input, you won't hear anything. Check for signal by turning on the unit and touching lightly the needle. You should hear a scratching sound. If not, start with a new needle.

Keep us posted.

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?
