First I assume you have replaced the belt and it didn't work! If not do so!! Next with the motor running, belt on etc, see if you can turn the turntable with your hand. If you can't, then the motor is working fine and the mechanism is jammed up. If you can the motor is faulty or not getting enough power. A check with a volt meter will tell you that.

I bought a Stanton T.52 turntable, but I need a belt. I've done some searches but can't seem to find anything. Where can I buy a belt?


Stanton is a hell when it comes to parts, just via a dealer is the best solution. But have you first tried to get the grease and dirt of this belt? and offcourse the poulies (round metal or plastic it spins on)degreasen. Do you use a clampweight or so..? Kind of waste of money and don't forget that the motor in this pricerange ain't a strong one is, which spins at a perfect 33, the st.150 is also cheap built and if you go for the music quality i recommened pro-ject or rega. Those have nice beginner hifi tables with a way better arm for 400 euro's new and pro-ject has the option to upgrade it , by give them the arm you use and buy the more expensive/better one for way less. And those sound way better then a stanton. The needledoctor.com sells a lot gear http://www.needledoctor.com/Pro-Ject-Debut-Carbon-in-Light-Grey?sc=2&category=352. but this table comes included 2mred , which i also have, but your records needs to be real clean, so i use them seldom:). And i have checked the side where i sometimes buy vestax gear, but yours wasn't between them. Just go to a dealer and they get one for you or check ebay.
But first try to clean it well, a little oil on it and your grip is gone.

Goodluck, greetings richard

Drum doesnt turn when turned on, can hear power goes to motor. Hve checked the belt and it is attached and can be maually turned


SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A PULLY ON THE MOTOR SLIPPING IF YOU CAN HEAR THE MOTOR RUNNING, BUT THE DRUM DOES NOT TURN. IF NOT THE PULLY, THEN THE BELT MAY BE SLIPPING IN THE PULLY, BUT THE PULLY IS TURNING. THEN A NEW BELT IS NEEDED. IN EITHER CASE YOU WILL NEED TO ACCESS THE MOTOR AREA TO SEE WHATS HAPPENING. MOTOR COULD BE NOT RUNNING, EVEN THOUGH YOU HEAR A HUM IN IT. BUT, MOTORS NORMALLY RUN LONGER THEN THE LIFE OF THE DRYER.

Pro-ject Debut III with USB turntable - produces high levels of distortion and static - why? (Has an internal pre-amp, so gets plugged into line level inputs. Is properly grounded. Line level input...


which pre-amp do you use, since the pre-amp and usb are cheap made components, especially pro-ject, i was amazed which low quality pre-amp i bought for 250 euro.

My pro-ject turntable is playing very very slowly.....I have changed the belt but no change....is it likely to be a motor problem?


I'm unfamiliar with Pro-Ject turntables, but the following genral advice will still apply:-

With the drivebelt disconnected, does the platter rotate freely with little resistance?

If not then the problem is the spindle bearing (may just need cleaning and re-lubricating with light oil). Some turntables allow you to remove the platter and re-lube the spindle, others have a sealed-for-life bearing where the only option is to replace the bearing. If you have the latter type then take the bearing to a specialist bearing supplier as they'll provide an equivalent replacement for far less than an official manufacturer spare. It will likely be exactly the same part without the branded packaging anyway.

If the platter rotates freely and becomes very much more difficult with the drivebelt attached then you have a motor problem. Try a tiny drop of light oil at each of the spindle bearings: if this fixes it then the motor bearings may just have dried out or may be on their way out. If not then look to the motor brushes and either the motor commutator (if the DC motor has an AC supply) or slip rings (if the DC motor has a DC supply). These items wear over time and lubricating them can make things worse as the lube traps dust and bits of debris to become a conductive grinding paste. If you have a commutator then clean it thoroughly with a Q-tip (UK=cotton bud) moistened with a little white spirit or lighter fuel, and then use a cocktail stick to clean out any muck lodged in the gaps in the commutator. The motor brushes which contact the commutator/slip rings are usually made of graphite and on some motor designs they can be removed, inspected and if need be replaced, but on many small motors worn rings/brushes mean that the motor must be replaced as a complete unit.

If the motor used is an ultra-modern brushless design, then there will be no rings or brushes to cause faults but there will be a motor controller circuit which can go wrong. If so the controller needs either to be replaced or to be tested and repaired by an electronics technician. Note that brushless motors can still suffer with spindle bearing issues though.

I hope that my posting has been of some assistance and ask in return only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Thorens TD 126 Mark III - Motor will not run with belt attached


Maybe next time you might turn it OFF before handling the belt.

Try this with power off - manually rotate the turntable and look for where drag might be. You should be able to feel the drag. It is possible you didn't route the belt properly.

Most likely the grease in the whole system has started to stiffen or the motor is failing. This can be fixed. Try oiling the motor first. If that fails, I'd look at the motor driver IC as the most likely failing part.
