Question about Dual Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
The problem is probably the belt. When a belt gets old it tends to stretch and/or get stiff. Listen to see if you hear the motor turning. If it comes on when you lift the arm, it is not the switch.

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.

Isn't there a little knob with a +/- setting that allows you to move the indexing in or out from the edge of the groove? Play with that and see if you can't get it dialed in a little better...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

See what kind of arm position sensing elements are used in your turntable (micro switches, optics or possibly other) and check if they work correctly - sometimes a microswitch can be damaged or have oxydized internal contacts or a badly soldered / broken wire and it will not function properly, causing the unit to stop automatically, the same might happen if the sensor is of optical type and there is some dust or broken wires or if the emmiter or sensor is damaged. Also, it could be a problem with the part that activates the switch / optics, it might be displaced or damaged.
If all sensors / switches seem to work well, then check the section which has wires going to those sensors / switches, it's the next probable location of the fault (it might be an electronic controller so there could be damage to some components, broken wires, dirty connectors or bad solder contacts).
It could as well be something else in the mechanisms, wiring or electronics, i just suggested a few things that might cause the malfunction you described.
Hope you can get it fixed.
