Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I haven't used our JVC AL-FQ5 turntable since we moved, but I put it away in perfect working condition and it was well-packed. Now, moved in, I can't find the instruction manual.
The problem is that although the tone arm lifts and moves into the start position, it won't drop onto the record. The piece that holds the tone up off the record does not descend so that the stylus can drop.
We thought of unscrewing the piece that holds the tone arm up and dropping the stylus onto the record manually, but, since it is automatic, when it gets to the end of the record it will no doubt return to the cradle--dragging the stylus all the way across the record as it does so.
Is there something we need to adjust? Thanks!
This is a tough one. There is usually a series of gears that function in unison to make all the magic happens. These gears are usually set in motion by a smaller belt located inside the unit. If this belt has come off or is damaged, your unit will not work. Or, if the gears have cracked, or dried up, same issue.
Suggest taking it to a service center for repair.
