Fuse issue My Califone 1010AV began to smoke when I started the player this afternoon. Could this be a fuse issue or something more of an issue that needs special care? Thanks in advance.

    What part was smoking? Mine had smoke coming from under the speaker jack. When I checked underneath, and turned it on, then off quickly, it was the IC Amplifier chip. Its part number is TDA2030A and are available on eBay.

Something more. A fuse is there to prevent damage (smoke) from components. If you smelled smoke, something is likely seriously awry and you should check it or have it checked out.

Ask them what the part is they can't get and report it back here. Fixya experts like myself sometimes can track them down.

I have a califone 1430k record player, and the arm is loose. It looks like the spring must have come loose. It is still attached by wires, but nothing else. If I take it apart, do you think I could fi


The arm should have a pin through it that secures it to the bracket that is attached to the arm bearing. There should be a long spring that is used to adjust the tracking force and it is underneath the arm.
The arm can be taken off by taking the player apart, unsoldering the wires from the arm and unscrewing the nut on the turntable bearing.
Because the arm mounts to a soft rubber grommet it should feel a little loose.
Hope this helps.

There's not enough pressure to keep the stylus down in the grooves. Increase the weight (on the end of the arm).

I have a Califone 1620 model economy classroom phonograph in need


Probably a bad relay switch. Open up the turntable. Identify the motor that spins the table. Follow the wires of that motor to, perhaps, some type of little circuit board with a relay. I have a Backley-Cardy 322-487 classroom phonograph which uses a Califone 1620 amp and a BSR turntable. To get the table to spin, you have to move the tone arm. Mine doesn't move and I'm in the process of replacing the faulty relay that is the problem.

Adjust pitch on a Califone turntable.


This one is actually fastened from underneath (inside). You need to open the player up and you will see the usual C shaped fastener on a cleat near the motor assembly. Most old direct drive record players have a C pin around the spindle that you can unfasten (pry with a twist) with a screwdriver. Irealize you figured this out yourself, but I'll take the guess work out for someone else... yeah..l you gotta take it apart!

Ya, this is a tough one. If it was on it's side, and not handle properly, something may have come loose and caused some damage inside. If you have absolutely no power, then more than likely the power transformer fried. Not much else in these things that could have caused such an issue. At this point, you have to decide whether it's worth getting repaired, or buying a working used one. They go on ebay for about $30-50, which is much cheaper than getting it repaired. Transformers for these units run around $20-30, then you have to tack on labor, which will be in the 40 min range - that's if its the transformer. But I do understand if it has some personal value, so that is something to consider. Hope this helps some. - Justin DJPROAUDIO
