Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Denon DP-51F turntable. It was fine the last time I played it, which was a number of years ago. Recently I wanted to resurrect it and I seem to have a problem with the lifter and/or tone arm. The platter turns, the lifter lifts the arm up and moves it to right above the record, but the arm won't lower down onto the record. Any ideas? Thanks! Paulann

    Dear styluscity,

    thanks for your response to my question about the non-lowering tone arm on my denon turntable. What kind of lube do you recommend?

    Thanks!

    Greetings. I seem to have the same problem with my Denon DP-300F. Did you find a solution to your problem. I'm probably going to open it up to see if some of the linkages need oil/lubrication.

    Cheers,
    Soon

Brand new Denon DP 300F turns extremely slowly.


The turntable should be under warranty still so contact the makers and they should sort it out. Any tampering with it could void any warranty so don't let any unathoriesed person touch it.

Adjust pitch


Register (free) at Vinyl Engine and download the service manual. The adjustment you need to do seems fairly simple. You will need a turntable strobe disk to get the the speed right, unless you have perfect pitch.

In my DENON DP-300F tone arm don't come back after playing record. It just stays in the end of record? How can i fix it?


A lot of decks don't actually do that anyway. But if it previously did this then it's probably a mechanical problem. Removing the bottom of the turntable might show up the cause of the problem.

DP29F turntable has static


either you haven't earthed the deck to the amp, on the proper ground screw, or your head shell wires are touching.
if the cartage(the thing the needle slots into) unscrews from the tone-arm, try unscrewing it,then putting back on, nice & tight....
if it still does it then it's your RCA leads that go from the deck to the amp(phono cables).
normally you would wire a deck/decks to a mixer first, then from the master out on the mixer to the AUX IN on the amp.

Denon DP-297 Turntable Tone Arm Skating


There should be a weight on the end of the arm, this needs to be adjusted. Some have numbers on them, increase the number shown. To get it to work right you will have to do it by trial and error. Increasing the weight in small steps, then playing a record. The trick being so it stays in the groove, but not too much so it rumbles on the sound. You will need to repeat the process several times till it sounds right and stays in the groove.

Hi. I also have a DP-51F and am experiencing severe problems with tracking. My sense is that the tone arm may be damaged. Would you be willing to sell parts from your turntable if you're not going to repair it? Let me know as I would be interested.
