Turntable arm will not lower - the guide just pushes it back to the off position


Try to do this

1. unplug the turntable
2. raise the arm
3. put it over the record
4. lower it which will not lower you said
5. push the arm to the very end close to the label
6. rotate the turntable by hand and it should take it through the whole return cycle of the arm and lower and finish the motion
7. then plug in and it should come back to normal

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.

Some of the lps i buy do not fit the table. for instance, usually the edge of the record scrapes the arm stand. Now though, i have a record that wont even turn because it seems too wide. any idea?


I had the same problem, at first I would just gently file down the edges of the records with a nail file, but when they got too many I decided to tackle the root of the problem and used a sharp blade to shave off some of the plastic of the arm stand, about 1 mm. No problems since!

The arm won't stay down, as soon as it sets down on the record it automatically stop and moves back to the resting spot.


If you have the automatic arm on you`res and you have to move the slidder control to make it work,don`t slide the control all the way.Just til you hear a click and then move the arm you`r self.Also make sure it is set to the size record you are trying to play.

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually


Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

Needle slides across the record on Crosley 5 in 1 player


you have unscrewed the suspension screw?

also check the needle for dirt and dust... try blue tacking a 5p coin to the top on the needle to give it a little more weight, if the needle stays in place then the arm balance if off, and unless there is a mechanism to adjust that on this turntable then i guess its a return!

Yes first check is that the Gnd wire from your turntable is connected to the Gnd (ground) post at the back of your amplifier with a good clean tight connection.
If the problem persists, check ALL your hi-fi components mains plugs for earth connections including your turntable, then remove the earth connections on all but one component so that you are left with only item earthed.
What does sometimes cause problems is if 2 or more hi-fi separates are earthed and connected to each other the earth cables along with the hi-fi interconnects form an inductive loop that picks up interferance such as mains hum etc.
