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!

Somewhere in the jack or the plug you have a wire broken. You will just have to look for it. If you have a volt ohm meter, this will aid you in finding the broken conductor. When you find the bad connection, you will probably have to solder it back together.

Can a Stanton str8-80 tonearm be fitted to a Stanton str8-100?

I am looking at pictures of the both the STR8-80 and STR8-100 and the both have the straight tone arm. So when you say an "s" arm I am a bit confused. The main part of the STR8-80 is the same as the 100. However the 100 has a different base to it, with additional controls such as lock(?) on it.

Having said that here is a guy that has converted the 100 to an S arm with pictures!

I'd fix the tonearm issue first before using it to decide you have a feedback-related issue with one brand of cartridge. I can't say how that would be fixed.

Feedback? Like airborne sounds from the speakers vibrating the turntable and being amplified through the speakers? The biggest downside to old-school vinyl use is that possibility and the workarounds we had to use to prevent it. Acoustic and physical isolation are the only solutions.

Stanton STR8-30

How did the internal wiring come out? Was it pulled, does it look like someone attempted to repair it, and didn't do a good job? Unfortunately, you have to open up the unit to see where exactly those wires were removed from. Those are the tonearm wires, which attach to the PCB which distributes the sound to the RCA cables. If those were pulled out from the tonearm, you have to have the entire tonearm replaced (not diy work). If it came loose from the board - VERY ODD that all 5 cables came loose, but it was bought on ebay, so anything is possible - you need to open up the turntable and solder the cables back (easier said than done). Yes, the black wire is the ground. I suggest you take it to a qualified service center for a diagnosis. You might be able to recover the costs from the seller. Hope you didn't leave any feedback as of yet. It might be the only thing you can hold over the seller's head.
