Hi I just got a Marantz TT42 in good conditions. The problem is that once turned on it spins backwards. I could not fugure out any solution (the belt looks well placed). Another problem is that it spins very very fast (I supose like 4 time faster then it should).
if anyone has any idea about it...
Thank you veru much

Re: Turntable spinning backwards
If it is a direct drive TT then it uses some electronic circuitry to control speed and it sounds like that circuit is having a problem. Possibly the actual driver IC for the TT motor has gone bad. Good luck.

The drive belt may be broken. The belt pulls and spins the the pulleys to make the machine spin. Empty it out (water) and unplug it. Turn it on its side to see if you can get access to the inside from the bottom, otherwise see if there is a panel you can unscrew on the back. Once you can see inside you will see that there is a belt off track or broken. Replace the belt and your good to go. You can probably get a belt from sears or home depot for less than $20.00

As the turntable was hit hard then an internal inspection should be done to look for signs of phyical damage. It could be anything from broken parts to bad soldering or a crack on the PC board. I rather suspect it should be obvious what got damaged when you look inside.
I would check the pump before anything else. The reason is because there is only one belt that actually goes around the motor, transmission, and the pump itself. You can lean the machine backwards and have access to the belt and the pulley to each one of the parts listed. The belt can be rolled off and once that is done each pulley should be able to turn smoothly.
Could certainly be a broken belt. Lift record tray and look to see if belt has fallen off or has basically fell apart. Belts can be purchased at Marantz.com. If no belt could be a bad motor. Same website.
Hi,Dead as in no power up or dead as in the turntable will not spin?? If
the turntable isn't spinning check and see if you have a direct drive or
belt driven.Getting back to your turntable, if it is belt driven your
belt may have become dried rotted. replacements are available at
needledoctor.com ... good luck, definitely worth getting it up and running again...
