Problem with Auto Return on Thorens Turntable TD 147

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?
Thanks -Glenn-

    Same problem with my Thorens TD-147. Maybe a problem with the optical sensor or board?

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.

After an album side is finished, my Thorens TD 185 turntable disc refuses to stop spinning.


Some turntables do not return the arm to the rest. However if it did so previous then something could have broken or become out of place underneath the turntable. The only way to check is look under the turntable by removing the base and looking for signs of damage.

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.


If you can turn the platter easily by hand, then so should the motor. You can also disconect the power leads to the motor and hook up a PP9 9 volt battery to it. If it\'s slow and easily stopped from rotating then there\'s nothing wrong with the power to the motor and the motor is bad!

Sme problem but more


I do not quite understand your description. However, the motor switch is underneath the deck and is very sensitive to adjust if you have to.

Try starting from scratch with no record on the turntable, the protector over the stylus. and the arm lifted with the cue button. The motor should not be running.

Gently move the arm towards the platter. The motor should start up.

Continue gently moving the arm across the platter slowly until you hear a slight clicking noise.

The arm should try to lift (it's already up) and return to the rest - it will stay up, of course.

After one more rotation of the platter the motor then switches off, or is supposed to at least, by a cam under the platter. You should hear the click as it does so.

It is all a matter of adjustment, and any knocks or bangs the deck may have had may have changed the set-up.

The STOP button you mention is so that you can start the arm lift- and -return cycle at any point on the record. It is not a switch.
