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.

How to fix my thorens TD 158 turntable that doesn't start automatically?


If the device opertated after you moved something then the chances are there is a switch attatched to the device you moved. This might have either got bent out of place or broken completly. Generally removing the bottom cover will reveal the inner workings. Where you can look around for the switch etc.

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.

The arm will automatically return without playing the record


Hi Lisa, its a bit of a long shot however try this. With the turntable powered of manually rotate the platter approx 12 times to reset the auto operation back to default. John styluscity.com

Hi, Have a Thorens TD147 turntable, have lost the detachable power cord. It is a special cord, possibly used just in that model. Any suggestions


The TD-147 is the semi auto version of the amazing manual TD-160. There is nothing garden variety about these delicate and precise machines. If you really want the correct information or parts for any vintage Thorens turntable, contact STS Turntables at classicthorens.com. Their tech is mentored and Swiss trained by original Swiss engineers. I trust no one else with my TD-124.
