I have the stanton t.52x and every time I play a record the record seems to slow down or just drop in tone. I can't figure out if it's the record player or the needle.

The tone arm drops onto the record, but then continues moving across the record without playing the record. Anyone know what's going on?


Does the needle actually contact the record? If not, you may be missing a "pad" under the record, or you may be simply missing the needle that needs to be there to follow the grooves.

My Mt 750 Fisher turns on the table spins a moment but the arm does not move what is wrong?


What you have is a record changer; and malfunctions today are probably more likely that in the past--even after the prestigious Fisher name and price had been largely supplanted in the post war years--before mfg quality control as a customer fault under protection (for sellers) by Warranty dodges had come to the fore. (In actuality, while record changers would would have been favored by record producers--for the rapid rate at which they destroy records--they would have been looked upon with disdain by pro disc jocks as well as high-end audio equipment producers (including Fisher) in favor of single play turntables that don't destroy records that must be played "on the air," repeatedly, hundreds of times per week in successsion.)

1. Did you unclip the tone arm from its resting post?
2. Remove record and turn off platter (name for a turntable record support) drive motor, and unplug the player machine.
  1. While manually rotating platter in PLAY direction (that's CW), actuate PLAY lever to its extent, release, and watch for tone arm movement as you continue platter hand rotation.
    1. (Oh yes, make sure the record hold-down arm is up and rotated outward to prevent hold-down-arm drop from causing changer to return tone arrm to stow post and dis-actuating START lever...such features once accurately called "self stop,: today inaccurately called "auto stop."
      1. ...by the way, could your problem be that you did not lower hold-down arm onto record(s)? ...making the changer mechanism below the platter "think" that all records had been played...so that it swung and stowed tone arm and then Self Stopped the player rather than repeat-playing the top-of-stack record (in order to save changer and record wear and tear)? Is your problem now solved? Just in case not, continue...
  2. As you hand rotate and watch, the tone arm (and release spindle with no record on it) should "recapitulate" its normal, record changing and playing motions--you are simply "handing" in for the platter motor.
  3. If there is a "hitch in the changer's stride" (that means a jam) it will also occur and be felt operating the changer manually. At that point, you will have "set" the changer mechanism in conflict-fault position for facilitating inspection to find the specific problem.
  4. Note that since record-changer-/turntable-type players are permanently confined to level-only use, that means the turntable/changer platform need not be affixed to its base (some are--some aren't) so it might be possible to simply lift the turntable/changer platform assembly up off the base to inspect underneath. Some (possibly most) turntables/ changers, on the other hand, are apt to be fastened to the base (lest the furniture be bumped into...but those typically did little more than prevent tone arms from skating some ot the time) in a suspension arrangement (if not rigidly) that incorporates helical thrust springs and hold-down screws at each hold down point, typically 4 in number. Detaching the platform is apt to involve simply looseing and then over loosening the screws...or by some other obvious or not so obvious means.
    1. Being mindful of any hard-connected wires, unfasten, lift, and invert changer platform to inspect underneath.
    2. Take appropriate corrective action at point of jamming.
    3. Revert and refasten platform and re-run manual-unpowered operation to confirm corrections.
    4. Return power to player and test using a record.
    5. Thank yourself for posting your question...if all or some of the above works.

Convert 45s to mp3s - sound scratchy


Just check the connections to the cartridge on the Stanton. Make certain they fit and are correctly fitted. Also check or replace the stylus, if it is not new.

ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable, tone arm won't drop


I've got the same problem. When you put therecord on, spin it from the centre, and it will release the mechanism inside,this is what I do, and it works fine. I think the problem is that there are twoplates under the turntable, and there was grease between them, after a few goesthe grease disappears, causing the problem.

Trouble with cartridge alignment


Hi, i was going to suggest a dedicated cartridge weiging scales but the one one the arm should suffice.
Normally it should be between 1.5 and 2 grams, as a ball park figure , though some will vary quite considerably.I think this can take upto 5 grams( a bit heavy really)
Looking at the picture, it looks like the stylus cantilever has colapsed, by someone dropping the cartidge onto the record.
If you think the alignment is out then you neded to buy a Cartidge allignment protractor, so you can setup your cartidge properly and don't ruin your records.
You could try and loosed the cartridge bols and move the cartridge so its parallel with the front of the head shell.

Are you using it for DJ use or just for listening to music?

I have just found on ebay, this -

Turntable will slow down for a moment while playing causing a dragging effect in the sound of the record. Turntable hasn't been dropped or damaged in any way.


You will need to check your belt for wear. Lift felt on platter and check belt tension. It may need replacing. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, taking note of the belt position. replace and your problem will be solved

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Belt Loop


Hi, If you take the platter (The Silver Wheel) off you will find that you will have a little tiny motorised wheel, you need to wrap the belt around that little wheel aswell as fitting it aroung the platter. Hope this helps.
