Hey there Jack, I have the exact same turntable and had the exact same problem. It's a pretty simple fix.

The control arm for the stop button,more then likely, got pushed a bit too far back.

Now bare with me, because I don't know the names of the mechanisms, but I'll try to make it sound simple.

First you're going to take off plate and belt, because you're going to be taking off the bottom cover of your turntable. If you don't remove the plate & belt, when you flip over the turntable, it's all going to fall and you could damage your belt.

Next your going to flip over the turntable and remove the screws that are holding on the bottom cover on. I think there are 5 of them.

Now that the cover is off, look at where the play and stop buttons are. Follow the thin metal arms that are connected to them. They should end at a white plastic piece (sorry, I don't know the name of it). Now check if the stop arm is hooked behind it or if it's pressed against the front of it. The stop arm should be RESTING ON THE FRONT of the white plastic piece.

If it's hooked behind the plastic piece, carefully pull it out and then place it against the front of the white plastic piece and you should be good to go.

My turntable was skipping and the stop button was not working. This solution fixed both issues.

Just picked up this player from a thrift store for 13$ with the same problem, i know this is probably a ghost post, but to others having as hard of a time finding solutions as i am, this is a problem that mine did have, although fixing it i found no real resolve. the mechanism that is attached to the needle arm has 3 plastic nubs, one has an arrow side to it that completely misses a switch, i turned that so it actually hits the switch and it makes it work manually. i tried using the buttons in auto mode, it got stuck in play mode and i tried wiggling some stuff around the inside and adjusted a few more things, not sure if it fixed the problem but i'll stick to using it as a manual player

Record player repair


The top arm that swings over the spindle will control the automatic return. Leave the unit off. Swing the overhead holding top arm over and manually load a record. Now switch the top arm over the niddle spindle. Make sure that the switch is set for 7", 10" or 12" (45, 78, or 33). Manually place the tonearm at the start of the record and flip switch to 'play' (not reject or auto). It should play the whole record and automatically eject at the end and then shut off. Leave the arm swung over the middle after you loaded the record. Good luck. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Sony PS-LX250H Player arm won't set down to play


Have you made sure the "up/down" button is not depressed? It's the furthest button to the right of the player if you are looking at it head-on. If it is depressed, it will cause the needle to simply hover above the spinning record. A good thing if you want to "pause" your musical experience, but not much help if you are trying to enjoy some sonic sensations.

Wurlitzer one more time. no sound and record will not eject


There is a switch just under the tone arm. When the tone arm moves towards the centre it slowly pushes two copper strips together. When they meet it starts the motor to eject the record. If you can't Cancel the record with the cancel button then that is a different problem, otherwise you can adjust the trip switch by inserting a 7mm spanner down the hole to the right of the tone arm post.

Hello, so for some reason the needle is sliding down the vinyl towards the center every time we go to play it. it just slides across! makes no sense, the needle is not broken and we have been trying to...


needles never seem to look broken But a tiny chip on them will make the player do exactly what your describing, as far as the counter weights,, spin the player by hand , click the handle to make the arm begin to position itself at the beginning of the record, Now, before it drops, slow down the hand spinning, and set the weight so that when the arm is supposed to drop it doesn't,, in other words balance it to be level, No up or down motion, without a weight scale to do this by the book, try this , Its always worked for me, tape 2 pennies to the weight at the rear of the arm, and one penny to the head of the arm, again, adjust it to be level,, then remove all the pennies,, the arm will have about the correct weight they require for the needle to be correct,, if it still slides, you have a bad needle

Fisher price 1978 record player


The Fisher Price record player has a device that prevented kids from pressing the needle down and sctratching the record. If you look at the cartridge where the needle is inserted, you will see that it floats up and down. The problem is that this keeps the needle from having enough pressure to play the record. Pennies just make the cartridge recede further into the arm. If you wedge something above the cartridge, the needle won't float and the it will play your records. I've had four of these and none of them worked until I figured this out.
