Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Thorens TD-320 has a wire suspended through spring held by a plastic grommet to float the tone arm and platter table. How can you find replacements for the grommets? They are a hard black plastic but must be strong to support the weight.

SOURCE: Problem with Auto Return on Thorens Turntable TD 147

Leo J. Nesuahecner The bottom of the tone arm shaft has a white plastic cup with a single screw in it. You need to remove a large square plastic cover also with a single screw to access the cup. This cup has a magnet in it. As the arm rotates to the end of the record this magnet trips a switch that pops the solenoid under the start stop lever. By loosening the screw on the white cup you can rotate the cup so the magnet hits it's switch sooner or later . It is touchy so prepare to to spend time fiddling with it. There is a small pointer on the cup you can use to grab with your fingernail to rotate the cup counter or clockwise. Hardest part is standing the table on end and operating all functions with the left hand and rotating the cup to various positions. Remember to gently tighten the screw after each adjustment or it will move when the tone arm is moved.

Thorens TD160 super tonearm will not lower


This most likely is a mechanical problem. Does it not work in both the automatic or manual modes? For more information, or should you have any further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me direct through the website. Thank you.

Turntable must be started by hand


This sounds like the stepper motor that drives the turntable is failing. Are there any good DJ shops near to you?

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.


If you can turn the platter easily by hand, then so should the motor. You can also disconect the power leads to the motor and hook up a PP9 9 volt battery to it. If it\'s slow and easily stopped from rotating then there\'s nothing wrong with the power to the motor and the motor is bad!

Broken needle on thorens TD 158 turn table.


Needle is a term used with 'record players' from the 60's. A turntable has a Phono Cartridge with a stylus. Depending on the brand / model of said cartridge the stylus may be replaceable. The cartridge certainly is. The tonearm is a delicate precision mechanism that will last lifetime if handled properly.

If you don't understand any of this I discourage you from taking any further actions without a knowledgeable mentor / technician looking over your ahoulder.
