Is the wheel rubber? IF so, then your unit does require a drive belt, instead you have an idler wheel driven turntable. There are various idler wheel repair shops all over the net.

The following company does good repair:

Sounds like the belt broke off, if so, you must replace the belt with the proper replacement belt. If it is a Quartz Lock system, it will be very pricey to fix. If so, it's best you take it to a professional if it is a Quartz Lock system, they are very delicate systems and require careful repair.

Hope this helps!

Turntable arm not moving across record?


Try, without any record on the table, if you can move the are, to the centre of the table. If you feel anything that is holding the arm, try to find out what it could be. Never use force. Also look inside if you can't find a clear obstruction on the top of the table. If you should find anything, don't bent, or don't break anything. Let a technical skilled person look why the obstruction is there and where the "thing" should be so the aren can move free. Perhaps you ned the obstruction for something only a few centimetres to the left or the right.

Why douen't my technics turntable spin?


Take off the rubber mat and see if the belt is off the aluminum platter the record sits on you should be able to see the rubber belt when the mat is removed. If it is not there or broke it will need replaced.

JVC auto return turntABLE - mODEL al-a95bk


when you said "no sound enough to enjoy listening" did you mean that you could hear something coming thru the speakers, but it isn't loud enough? if so, you may be plugging the turntable into a "ceramic" phono input on your stereo. it may be that your stereo doesn't have a pre-amplifier on the phono inputs. Ceramic tonearm cartridges (the part that holds the stylus - which you may call the needle) have enough output level to drive an amplifier. if your cartridge is magnetic, the output is very low compared o the ceramic. the trade off is that magnetic cartridges have a much wider dynamic range than the ceramic, and when properly pre-amplified, sound MUCH better than a ceramic unit. you can probably find a separate pre-amp at radio shack (i know they sold them several years ago). you plug the turntable into the inputs of the pre-amp, then plug the pre-amps output into your stereo. hope this helps.

I have a Zenih Allego table type stereo with 8 track, radio & turntable, but it has NO cartridge at all - just wires from the needle arm. It's supposed to play 78s, how can I find out which cartridge...


You will need a very old type of cartridge called CERAMIC CARTRIDGE or CRYSTAL CARTRIDGE. It has been discontinued. Today's Hi-Fi use magnetic cartridge. Check out this link below

Trying to find a way to get the turntable of a Zenith Allegro Console to work. We have turned to whole unit on and off. AM and FM radio plays. Turntable doesn't turn. At the bottom right of the turn...


Lift the turn table off the case and check the belt if it has one or the idler wheel that mechanically turns the table. Also check the motor to see that it rotates when you simulate a record play moving the needle carrier towards the center, The power must be on to test it. Becareful not to touch the 115 VAC line.

One of my DJ turntables = only left side stereo sound


need to narrow it down, using 1 turn table ONLY with the mixer on channel 1 (the chanel that is working) to test reciever is working properly and sound working on both side of the speakers, this eliminate the first turn table. Next, disconnect the working turn table (1) and connect your second turn table to the same chanel and see if you getting the sound coming chanel 1 just as your first turn table did. If you getting sound coming out from turn table on ch1 than is not the turn table issue. It will be you mixer having problems. You cant solve the problems having everything connected. Testing one turn table at a time using working chanel on the mixer to see if both turn table working properly. If you use the same chanel testing both turn table and the second one does not work than it will be one of your turn table is faulty. Note: if you find and test both of your turn table is working properly than it will be your mixer. good luck and hope that help..

Connecting a turn table to a micro stereo system


You will need the following to connect this to that system:

1) Phono Pre-amp
2) 3.5mm to RCA adapter or 3.5mm 'Y' cable to RCA
3) Turntable

Your turntable will connect to the Phono Pre-Amp input. This pre-amp will also have an output. This output is RCA, from here you connect to your system using the 3.5mm adapter or cable.

That's it.

Turntable Issues


Check to make sure that your voltage setting is set correctly. Look under the turntable platter. You'll see a voltage selector. Make sure it's properly set for your area (115V or 220V).

If this does not solve the problem, or you have a turntable that does not have the voltage setting feature, then you might have a faulty turntable drive issue or an issue with the power, which means something is wrong on the main board (located underneath the turntable platter).
