Hi I just got a Marantz TT42 in good conditions. The problem is that once turned on it spins backwards. I could not fugure out any solution (the belt looks well placed). Another problem is that it spins very very fast (I supose like 4 time faster then it should).
if anyone has any idea about it...
Thank you veru much
My Technics SL-QL1 when turned on and the start button is pressed, doesn't run. The platter rocks back and forth for a few seconds. If I turn it by hand, it will only run backwards. Do I have bad Hall effect sensors or the IC that controls the speed?

Good day. Lift the rubber mat off the platter and notice the two rather large holes in the plater. Put your thumb and forefinger through the holes and pull the platter off the turntable unit. Place the platter upside down and notice the inner rim which holds the belt. Place the new belt around the inner rim and replace the platter onto the unit. Now, with tweesers, working through one of the large holes, pull the belt onto the spindle motor. Once on, spin the platter by hand and make sure the belt does not slip off. Hope this helps
I had a similar issue with my Crosley turntable that I recently picked up... and after digging up the manual online all I had to do was lift up on the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding mechanism) until it clicked, and voila, the turntable started spinning again.
A lot of turntables start moving when the arm is moved to the record start. The turntable should move when you move the arm to the edge of the platter, even with no record. If it doesn't, listen to see if the motor spins. Then lift up the platter matt to see if the belt has slipped off.
the turntable wont spin unless a record is on the platter,the centre 45 adapter weighs the record to determine 33/45.try pressing 33 and turning the platter by hand(remove expensive cartridge first!),if it starts to spin the motor leaf switch is at fault.is the belt in position.the motor pulley can become unglued.
The plater is either belt driven or idler wheel driven. You need to remove the plater and check the condition of whichever you have.
Belts would need replaced if bad, sometimes you can clean idler wheels with brake fluid and get them working again. Also if the unit is old, the grease on the plater spindle may be dried up. Clean it off and re-grease. Any light lithium grease is good or go buy some "Luberex" at radio shack.
I just worked on a unit with the same problem. The spindle bearing will seize up if it is not oiled at least once a year. Take off the feet and split the top and bottom. Remove the three screws that hold on the spindle. Remove the E clip that holds on the gear. Put it in a vise and press off the gear and remove the shaft. Thoroghly clean off the shaft and the bearing. Lub with 3 in 1 oil and reassemble.
