Question about Thorens TD-190 Turntable
I have a Thorens TD 147 turntable. It's manual cueing, but it has auto return where the arm will lift up in the lead out grove and the platter will stop. This no longer works and I have to make sure I'm next to the turntable to lift the arm up when it's at the end of the record. Any clues how to fix this?
Hi, contact me direct and I will send you the service manual. John. email@example.com

Leo J. Nesuahecner The bottom of the tone arm shaft has a white plastic cup with a single screw in it. You need to remove a large square plastic cover also with a single screw to access the cup. This cup has a magnet in it. As the arm rotates to the end of the record this magnet trips a switch that pops the solenoid under the start stop lever. By loosening the screw on the white cup you can rotate the cup so the magnet hits it's switch sooner or later . It is touchy so prepare to to spend time fiddling with it. There is a small pointer on the cup you can use to grab with your fingernail to rotate the cup counter or clockwise. Hardest part is standing the table on end and operating all functions with the left hand and rotating the cup to various positions. Remember to gently tighten the screw after each adjustment or it will move when the tone arm is moved.
