Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have found a sony ex-2m record player/ 8track and tuner combo. It was in my grand mothers closet. It seems in good shape, the 8 track and tuner works but for the turntable I cannot get it to work. won't spin. I took off the "turn table" and it seems like where I think the idler wheel should be it is spinning and changes speeds. But, there is no rubber on the idler, but there is no broken or parts of any wheel or rubber in side the case. I cannot imagine at anytime Grandma took off the cover and removed anything. I cannot find any info on the web on this model. Any info would be appreciated. Let me know if you need any more info, Thanks in advance, Joe

SOURCE: Turntable will not turn (spin)

It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Turntable belt drive keeps slipping off.

I have a Linn LP12. At least in the case of my turntable, that's just how you are supposed to use it (i.e. this is what the manual says). You could get a replacement belt f you like, but I would guess it will not make a difference - that is, I think you do not need a replacement belt.

However, in my case I don't have to be very careful about the start-up push on the turntable, just one tweak to get it rotating at about the right speed is enough in my case.

SOURCE: mid 70's sears turntable. plate will not spin.

take a soldiering iron and touch it to the metal in the center of the platter for a few seconds. this will heat up the grease on the inside and allow the platter to budge. should work fine afterwards. what happens is over time the grease hardens and locks everything up. applying some heat will loosen things up and get it running again

SOURCE: everything works on my record player but my turntable doesnt spin

This happened to me tonight. I had the same problem, to activate the player on you need to move it to the right until you hear a click. If you don't do it it won't start. Even if all the power is on. This should fix everything!

hi there is nothing to do by yourself. you need to take your md player to the next authorized service. seems the optical device that reads the discs has worn out, compareable to turntables you need to change the `needle` ;)

I think you need to read the manual CAREFULLY and follow it step by step. I had problems with mine also and found it was me in too much of a hurry to get things done. This unit is easy to record with once you get the procedure figured out. I think you're just missing a step. Good luck

You need to verify that your card is confirmed to work in the MR8 at this site:

It is OBVIOUS that your card is not acceptable because it is larger than 2GB.

Do they make a DVD/VHS Combo with a built in decoder that will connect to my Analog TV using only a coaxil cable?


99.99% of the combo units that have a tuner inside have been phased out.
You do need an external tuner to get cable through to the combo unit. The only combo units that I have seen that has a tuner in it already and hooks up to the coax is one that is a vhs/dvd RECORDER and not just a vhs/dvd PLAYER. You pay extra for the built in tuner and also for the dvd recording features.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

Vcr/dvd combo recording problems


You can use a normal set top box, plugged into the AV inputs on the combo, you could even use a seperate VCR for this, as long as it's recieving the signal you want to record.

Sony 20in TV/VCR combo suddenly stopped working?!


The problem you have with the tape is probably one of the nylon or plastic gears have worn or cracked and the mechanism has gone out of timing. the no channels is probably the tuner assy. These Ive seen go out a hundred times. Unfortunatly this is an 8 year old unit and the cost to repair will most likely exceed, or close to the cost of another unit, as I know that tuner assy part #TELH-005A cost around $63.00, and the cost to repair the deck assy depends on what the problem is and then add labor ,your looking at around 150 to 200 bucks. Good Luck
