Re: they wont turn on
Check the fuses. If the fuses are good, then it's the transformer that is shot. The fuses are located underneath the turntable platter. If your unit does not have any fuses, then the only problem could be with your transformer. You can PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT TRANSFORMER HERE.

Since you have no sound even on radio, it's not going to be a bad tt motor. There is no fuse except for a thermal fuse inside power transformer. I would start with a continuity check accross both of the blades on the plug. If it's open, you prob have a bad power transformer.
If the deck connects to a hif-fi system that powers the motor then the plug has been inserted in incorrectly.
If it has it's own power supply then either the belt is fitted wrong. Somebody trying to repair it has fitted the motor connection wrong or in the case of a direct drive model a fault has happened causing the motor to go into reverse.
The step down adapter should work fine as long it supplies the voltage and any other ratings shown on the turntable power supply indication pannel. However the problem might already have happened. If the fuses were before the power entered the mains transformer of the unit, then if they were set to blow above the USA voltage then things could be OK. However if the the fuses were in the secondary output from the transformer then the mains will have caused possible damage to the transformer. Maybe even elsewhere.
if your lucky the switch is broken, if not the power board (or transformer on the power board) is dead, presuming youve checked with a different power lead. my mixer has a power issue too. difficult part to get, if i get an alternative power source hooked up i will publish it
The drive belt has come off. Open the lid. Remove the rubber mat on the platter. Remove the C-shaped clip from the center of the turntable. Lift the platter up and off. Find the flat rubber band that connects platter and the motor. Plug it in and verify that the motor turns when you press power, then standby, then phono.If the motor spins, unplug power and place the drive belt on the underside of the platter. This is not easy, but it can be done with patience. Then put the C-clip back on and replace the mat. Congrats!.
1. power OFF
2. UNplug cord at wall
3. Turn ON jukebox (w/o power cord plugged in)
4. Turn OFF jukebox
5. Plug cord into SURGE PROCTOR (not wall, not simple power strip)
6.Turn ON jukebox.
7. If it doesn't work, try once more; otherwise ... *sigh* repair/replace..
If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.
