Could be two separate faults. First a switch that does not make contact when you move the arm. Then dirt on the CD lens.
If you can hear sound from any other function it is unlikely to be an IC problem.

Most of these motors run on about 9 to 12 volts DC. You can connect a 9 volt battery to the terminals of the motor. Make certain the rest of the system is off and the motor power leads are not connected to the main system. If the motor doesn't turn with the battery it's faulty. If it does then you are perhaps looking at some switch that has failed or the power to the motor itself!

You are describing too problems, won't close all the way, could be a bad loadind belt. the second issue it will not play, the timing gear is out of sync, or the laser pickup is not functioning, you will need to take it to a service shop for assessment.

There is normally a screw underneath the actual deck to adjust the speed.

OK this may sound funny but try to picture it. Remove the c-clip holding the platter to the center spindle. Remove the platter and turn it bottom side up, place the rubber belt around the platter and fix it to the little post sticking up on the outer-edge surface. The little post holds the belt to the platter while you turn the platter over and put it on so that the post points right over the motor pulley. Turn the platter by hand either clockwise or counter-CW and the belt will pop off of the post and land on the motor pulley. One drop of oil on the center spindle for lube and fasten the e-clip back on.

I don't know whether your philco is the same as my crosley, but I recently had an issue where the record player stopped turning and it bamboozled me to no end. After digging up the manual online, I found out that you had to lift up the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding clip) until it clicked, and voila, the record player started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

Hi, there is no diagram available to install it but i can give you a brief description of how to install. Remove the c-clip holding the platter to the center spindle. Remove the platter and turn it bottom side up, place the rubber belt around the platter and fix it to the little post sticking up on the outer-edge surface. The little post holds the belt to the platter while you turn the platter over and put it on so that the post points right over the motor pulley. Turn the platter by hand either clockwise or counter-CW and the belt will pop off of the post and land on the motor pulley. One drop of oil on the center spindle for lube and fasten the e-clip back on.
1) Remove the platter - just lift up 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.

what do you mean it drags? I noticed if you don't pull the arm back far enough,it will turn on,but the arm will drag foward scratching your record. Try pulling it bacl ALL the way and then it should give you no problems.

I had a similar issue with my Crosley turntable that I recently picked up... and after digging up the manual online all I had to do was lift up on the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding mechanism) until it clicked, and voila, the turntable started spinning again.

I hope this helps!
