Had a GPX S7794 for years, now having trouble w/ turntable. Turns on by moving tone arm right, but if moved left to try to place it on a track towards the end of the record, turntable shuts off.

GPX S7794 is a home music system with turntable, cd player, radio, cassette player/recorder.

What happens is that a mechanical system under the turntable pushes on a micro switch to operate the motor. Clearly either the mechanical system has moved out of position or the switch has. You take the bottom off the turntable and see what happens when you move the arm.

SOURCE: Tone arm won't drop

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.

SOURCE: Turntable will not turn (spin)

It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Hope this helps!

How do I access tone arm belt and motor on a Pioneer PL-L30 turntable?

Try lifting up the turntable mat. You should see a hole. Note how it fits before removing the belt.

How can I stop the tone arm from returning too early on smaller records?

The adjustment for auto return position is normally at the tone arm base on the left side under a rubber grommet. Use a flat blade screw driver to move adjustment screw, then test. Keep fine tuning until arm lifts at desired position. Cheers John. Stylus City NZ

Platter not spinning

Some turntables only move when you move the arm to the record. If that doesn't work and you have read the set up instructions correctly, as it's new contact the maker or the place you purchased it from. I'm certain they will help.

Linear tracking turntable realistic lab 2100 ...the arm doesnt move at all? Is there a way to fix it?

i recently bought one with the same issue. it has nothing to do with a turntable belt as the list of useless suggestions state below. you must remove the lid (when open, it should slide out by lifting directly upward), then you remove the rubber mat and metal plate. there you will see a plastic cover held on by 5 or 6 small screws...remove those and the cover. this cover exposes the opening that your tone arm will have to be above to remove the entire plastic shell that houses the entire inner workings. So, with the power ON...use the << button to move the tone arm over the opening (you may want to give a gentle push to the mechanism to guide it along). Once it's over the opening, you can begin to remove the entire cover. there are three screws on the top side of the unit (way down in three holes that were under the platter), then there are a number of screws on the bottom of the unit around the outter edge and one near the center. With those screws taken out, the cover should be able to be removed. Inside the unit, on the left (all the way to the back) is your small motor that spins a small black belt that turns the gears that pull the tiny steel cable attached to your tone arm assembly. On my turntable, this belt had sat so long that it had conformed into an oblong shape and wouldn't spin properly around the two wheels/pulleys. Make sure that you still have a belt there. If not, search the global interweb for one...$5-15 maybe?! I was able to remove my belt, cleaned it up a bit with soap and water (made it slightly pliable and tacky enough not to spin on the pulley/wheels), then put it back on works now. Hope this helps?!?!

I have a Califone 1620 model economy classroom phonograph in need

Probably a bad relay switch. Open up the turntable. Identify the motor that spins the table. Follow the wires of that motor to, perhaps, some type of little circuit board with a relay. I have a Backley-Cardy 322-487 classroom phonograph which uses a Califone 1620 amp and a BSR turntable. To get the table to spin, you have to move the tone arm. Mine doesn't move and I'm in the process of replacing the faulty relay that is the problem.

Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.

A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.

Turntable start switch does not engage

Actually, you start the turntable by moving the tone arm AWAY from the center.
