I have a Teac P-A400 turntable. Power is on, something is turning, but the actual table that holds the record does not turn. What might I be missing?

I have the same problem and have tried to lift the metal platter without success. So you have to come up with harmless tools to be able to rotate the smaller platter underneath the large aluminum platter which has holes that will allow you to slowly but eventually be able to wrap the belt around the circumference of the inner platter. No sharp tools!

I have a Teac AG-780 Reciever. I've lost the Remore and I can't switch to Phono mood.


Remotes.com has an original remote and a substitute replacement remote: http://www.remotes.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=ag780 . However, if the Phono button on the AG-780 does not switch the receiver into Phono mode, you may have an additional problem that needs to be fixed. I'd recommend that you check the wiring, including the Phono Ground wire, and make sure that the turn table actually works. If you have your turntable connected to one of the other inputs, the Phono ground may not be recognized.

I hope this helps.

Using turntable (audio technica at-lp 120) with built in pre amp the sound is distorted and broken up. the turntable requests phono turned on to use. Does the receiver have a pre amp or boost signal...


A turn table produces sound voltage in the millivolt range. If you have it connected to a receiver that has a phono input and the turn table is pre-amplified, you are overdriving the receiver and it is clipping the audio and making it sound bad.

How do I connect my turntable? I have tried using the slots for auxiliary, with an Onkyo turntable with standard plugs. Do I need a special adaptor?


Auxiliary will work but its not intended for phono ( record player ).
The turn table doesn't have a amp so the sound will be lower.
Where as auxiliary is designed for digital connection ( mp3 Laptops etc ) that have they own pre amp.
all the turn tables I have use need to be Earthed to the amp via a earthing tag or you will get a bad sound.
Hope this helps.

Where do I hook up the record player


That would depend on what type of outputs your record player has. If it only has RCA (white/black and red), simply choose one of the two RCA inputs. If it has optical or coaxial outputs, and you don't have another device you wish to use one of those, then those would be fine as well. Hope this helps!

Have a teac p-a 400 turntable,that was just given to me. i see a rubber pad that goes on top of turntable, the turntable made out of metal, and a oversized rubber band. I put the rubber band around the...


I'm guessing that the belt is too large (stretched). Normally it should be small enough to stay on the platter itself. Install the platter and place the belt around the motor hub (white plastic), If the belt is too loose, it will just sit and not turn the platter. Try a new belt first as that is the least expensive option to try.

Keep us posted.

Garrard turntable model 630s


There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,

Can a turntable be hooked up to this receiver?


The Aux function is not meant for that purpose.The turntables/Record Players being way too old,now a days the amplifiers do not come with PHONO function that was specially used for playing Records/For turntables. Check if u have a phono function in your amplifier and if not then buy another amplifier with Phono function coz you need a ground wire [that comes out from the turn table] also to be attached to the amplifier and then only you can get a proper sound.

Will not drop 45's


I think the spindle is broke or stuck in some way! if you have another one try that! and if you dont you may be able to use those little plastic adapter thingys and place them on the 45s and try that !
It sounds to me like the spindle is sticking and is pulling the turntable belt and slowing it down!
I would look for a new/used spindle
I think this will fix ya!

Turntable won't turn


Hi!

Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!
