Probably too simple to be true .. but I have a 'record player' in an old car, and the small motor that drives the turntable is running in reverse (incorrect) direction. Is thi simple a matter of 'polarizing' or some such thing. Probably simple to you , but well .. I need some advice and would appreciate it. Remember this is a tiny motor .. 12V , 1 1/2 " dia ...

Hi,

I agree, it is old. None the less, yes on reversing the wiring of the motor. All DC motors are polarity affected.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Califone 1435k This record player from the 70s runs great and came highly recommended but the 33 records we're trying to play are sounding much too fast. Any ideas on how to fix this?


This is an idler wheel drive turntable that uses a small rubber wheel, that when engaged pushes on the motor spindle and also on the rim on the underside of the platter. The spindle on the motor is stepped so as you shift speed the idler wheel moves up or down the spindle and that changes the speed of the platter. It could be the the shifting mechanism is dodgy You can try to loosen it by gently shifting the speed from 78 to 16 and back again. But the idler wheel rubber might be in trouble too.

Hey there, After a power outage the motor that drives the platter "BSR turntable" does not function. Is there a fuse or some other likely suspect?


If the motor is directly connected to a mains supply then the chances are that when power was restored it burnt out or damaged the motor itself. Following the mains lead into the unit should answer where the power goes. If it goes to a transformer and it's associated power supply the problem will be found there.

Hi, I am looking for a manual for a Bush SRP 52 record player as the turntable won't turn when I switch it on. I want to find out what the problem is.


It's not a belt drive turntable. It's an Idler drive. A mains powered motor spins a brass spindle, this presses on a rubber wheel which pushes against the platter on the inside. If you can hear the motor running when put in play mode the chances are that the rubber tyre is no longer touching the rim of the platter. It might be possible to get a tyre for it. There are some shops that specialise in these old type turntables. If you don't hear the motor running then either the power supply to the motor has failed or that a micro switch is either not getting pressed upon or is broken. Taking the base off the deck will show the underside revealing the workings. The platter is held on by a horse shoe clip, located on the centre spindle. It might be hidden under a silver plastic thing. You have to get that off to get to the clip.

Electro Brand model number 9801: I played one record, now when I tried to play another the turntable will not rotate. Could the motor have burned out that easily?


Listen carefully with your ear to the turntable when you move the tone arm towards the record. If you can hear the motor running and the turntable is still stationary then the drive belt from motor to turntable has probably fallen off of broken. Lift the turntable, there's normally a metal clip holding the turntable in place, and locate the drive belt.

I have a Technics SL-QL1 direct drive turntable that works perfectly for about 5 seconds, then it suddenly repeats itself over and over... the record never advances beyond that point. It happens with any...


I don't think it's the direct drive as that just makes the platter spin around. Since the stylus sits in a record which moves it forward, if it gets stuck then it's going to be something to do with the arm of the record player that can't move beyond that point. Check around the piviot of the arm for problems and look at the anti-skating control. If you can move the platter by hand that will prove it's not the drive if the stylus gets stuck.

I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working


If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like LPGear.com can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

Hi, When i try and record onto the machine it does not run, it sticks, tried new batteries but no difference, machine is about 2 years old, David.


If ther is no drive, even in fast forward or reverse, the the belt may have come off the motor pulley. Otherwise you may have a hair wrapped around the tiny drive cogs under the turntable.

2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.
