Question about Stanton ST-150 Turntable

Open Question

I just bought a Stanton ST-150 turntable and have noticed that when I am playing a record and hit "STOP," the platter stops turning but then a second later it turns back slightly in the opposite direction it was spinning before stopping. I do not know if this is "normal" for this turntable or if this means that the platter is slightly defective. Can anyone who owns this turntable tell me whether the platter also does this when they hit "STOP," or does it also turn back slightly the other way a second after stopping? Thank you. -Tony

SOURCE: Powere input

Some ST-150's have fuses, some do not. It would be on the rear of the unit, next to the power cable. If it is not there, then it might be under the turntable platter, on the main board. Not sure if you have a US or non-US model. So check both places. If you cannot find the fuse, then you don't have one. It's not that hard to locate. If this is the case, then your power transformer probably fried and will need to be replaced. This part runs about US$40

SOURCE: help

I also would like to just give some input here as for if anyone had any other questions on how to use this turntable with the software. Because the instructions are incomplete as well as incorrect.

1. Problem Not getting sound?
When you hook up the turntable it automatically installs a generic usb codec driver and switches all of your audio drivers to this generic one.
Solution: first step, go into control panel-sounds-audio tab-change the sound playback default device to your soundcard it will be in the drop down menu-apply-ok
second step, open audacity software go up to the top i beleive it is under edit-preferences and change the playback to, your soundcard it will be there in the drop down menu-ok.

Now you can hear sound (you can check this by just playing a cd)

How to record?
first select the record button on the audacity software, then play the record on the turntable, you should now hear and see the wavelengths moving across the screen, voila you are now recording, once done click stop, now it has recorded your lp to your pc-press the green arrow to play it back.

How to burn?
after you have done the above you will have to go into file-then export to .wav file (i have not played around with .ogg or .mp3 yet). Then it will ask you where to save? Save to wherever you want (easiest is save to desktop for non-pc literate). Now after you completed this all you have to do is right click on the file and burn to cd.

Hope this helps this is a very simple guide to at least get someone started using this turntable, this is a great piece of equipment once you get to using it.

SOURCE: when i turn my turntable

Is the platter itself moving up and down or the record? It could just be the record's wear and tear (warped) which raises the tone-arm which in turn makes it move up and down on certain sections of the record. Try bending the record (very very slightly) to straighten it out or put more weight on the tonearm.

SOURCE: Stanton ST150 turntable won't spin

Hello DeKay,

I just had a spindle lock issue this past Sunday at my gig. I had the turntables out in my car and brought them in. I let then warm up for 2hrs before plugging them in.

Everything was good. Then mid set my right side turntable started spinning really fast and then DEAD STOP.

I was pushing the platter and it really hard to turn. I took off the platter and tried to turn it with my hand. It was dead locked, WTF?!!

So I limped through with one turntables since I use Traktor Scratch Pro and made it through the whole night successfully.

I searched the net and it was suggested to lubricate the 1200 spindle with 15W40 motor oil. Since the motor design is indentical, I picked up some 10W40 motor oil since I couldn't find 15W40.

I oiled both turntables to be on the safe since. I tapped the spindle on the locked turntable to help loosen it.

I drove back home which is pretty much an hour drive and let the tables sit for another 2 hrs.

I decided to grab a thick towel and vice grips to work on the locked spindle.

Clamping down on the towel with the vice grips on the brass fitting for the platter I was able to free the spindle quite easily.

I was then able to turn it by hands so I did in both forward and reverse directions to work the oil down into the spindle bearings.

I put the platter back on and spun it manually to check for resistance, it was spinning nicely!

Plugged in the turntable, set the pitch at 0 and watched the stobe dots. There was no waver in the strobe dots. YAAAAAAAY!

My turntable is back to new and since I only use them on the road they stay stored most of the time.

So I would suggest just oiling the spindles every so often to keep them tip top.

Hope this helps you!

Peace,
DJ Quartz

Try looking at the spindle where the record hole goes. You might have to lift the mat somehow. There might a C Ring holding it.

Stanton st.150 turntable sins unevenly


That is a lack of maintenainance, but your real problem is that your

voltage regulator from -24 en 24v gets to hot, since the stanton has crappy everything, where cheap build and often the components aint screw against the cooling block, so first check that and well , there about 60 crappy su\'scon caps that needs replacement. It\'s a tt from hell with the useless weight. Your system started spinning hard, cause the thermal protection started to work. Overheating, since most peoples set the start and stop torque set at the highest point, and with the small cooling blocks you get a problem and by pressing the platter, you ask for more current and that was just too much, if your bearings were that bad you assume , you have heart a lot more noice.

Stantonst.150 turntable platter spins unevenly


Well, you have the rotor, which has above the conus where you put your platter on. But the rotor needs to be kept in space, so it can spin,
which offcourse in the is done by (too soft) bearings, but the bottom of the the rotor(which looks the same as the 'pin' where you put you vinyl on, just leans on a piece of metal, instead of a technics where it falls in a shaft too keep it is place.
You undestnd that the strength on the bearings of a st150 is much higher, especially when scratching. Besides that, the high torque works 0,2 sec and then an optocoupler samples the speed of the rotor. And it's easy:on the underside of the rotor ,there's a plastic round disc puled over the rotor and kept on his place by a plate and 3 screws, with on the outside just

Check if the platter is oke and aint stock, and otherwise is you spindle bearing defect.... A platter ain't goes from flat to wobble all of a sudden.

If you only listen, take a loke at the rega and pro-ject sites.....

Stanton ST 150 motor will not turn on but all lights on deck flash?


If you have misc LEDs that are flashing without due cause and a motor, I'm betting a Direct Drive motor, that won't spin, I would same you have a damaged microprocessor(computer) within your table that's bad.
