If the turntable is a belt drive one then the belt must have deteriorated after all these years. Pull up (remove) the turntable disc platform. you will see a little motor shaft and the cut or deteriorating belt. You can order the belt from http://www.vintage-electronics.net/yamaha-mc-600-belt.aspx.
Please make sure that you clean the black residue left on the motor shaft and the turntable platform where the belt runs with isopropyl alcohol before you put the new belt on.

SOURCE: My sunbeam mixmasters turntable is not turning

Hi Jill. Your mixer's gears are made of plastic and can't really handle heavy loads such as cookie and bread doughs. Contact Sunbeam Corp. to locate a parts place near you. You'll need to replace at least the large gear that turns the turntable base, possibly the worm gear that turns the large gear too. Grease these gears when you re-install the parts. You'll have to cut a couple of cable ties to get the machine apart enough to do the work. If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

Don't mess with it and risk voiding your warranty. These are a servoed speaker and there is a problem with the feedback in it. Exercise your warranty immediately.

When I plug in my marantz TT-42 turntable to my Yamaha R-S300 receiver's phono input, I get a muddy and loud sound. I've tested the turntable with direct input to Bose speakers and it works fine.


If the turntable produces good sound with a line level input on another system, you have the turntable with the pre amp built in. That is why the sound is loud and distorted.

Using turntable (audio technica at-lp 120) with built in pre amp the sound is distorted and broken up. the turntable requests phono turned on to use. Does the receiver have a pre amp or boost signal...


A turn table produces sound voltage in the millivolt range. If you have it connected to a receiver that has a phono input and the turn table is pre-amplified, you are overdriving the receiver and it is clipping the audio and making it sound bad.

I just bought a pioneer pl-420 direct drive record player and when i hooked it up to my samsung home theater system via the aux ports in front but when i play records the sound is too low im have to turn...


If the player has a MD/MC pickup head, you need to use an input suitable for MD/MC
(Magneto Dynamic/Moving Coil). If that is not available, you need to buy a standalone
phono pre-amp (pre-amplifier with RIAA-correction curve). Like the TCC TC-400G/L.
Example: See HERE and some info HERE.

No sound through the receiver


Note that on page 6 of the receiver manual (one of the models... you did not tell us which) says that... "the turn table must have an MC type cartridge OR use a seperate preamp or step up transformer"...

The MC cartridge is LIKELY a high output type which is NOT typical...

It MAY be you have too low a level of audio output from the turntable.

Can't seem to get any music from the turntable


Do you have the ground wire from the Turntable hooked up to the receivers ground terminal? it's a screw down silver nut and should be next to the Phono input. You are just lacking a ground from the turntable to the receiver. If you don't see a wire from the turntable, look around the chasis of the unit and you will fins it. Hope this helps

WEAK SOUND WHEN CONNECTED TO DURABRAND AMP


The electrical output from a turntable actually comes from the cartridge on the tone arm. Specifically, it's generated by an interaction between a magnet and a coil inside the cartridge. They come in two types, MC ("moving coil") and MM ("moving magnet") according to which of the two elements moves and which is fixed. MM cartridges produce more current but MC cartridges usually sound better. No matter which you have though, the total output is too low for the regular line inputs on amplifiers. Ten or twenty years ago, amps has special "phono" inputs. This would have a special pre-amplifier in it that would amplify the cartridge's singal to a level suitable for the rest of the amp. Most amps having a phono input only deal with MM cartridges, which have a higher signal.

I use an MC cartridge with an amp that doesn't have a phono input at all; therefore I needed to buy a special external phono pre-amp. I bought a Musical Fidelity X-LPS. But cheaper pre-amps do exist.

Carousel stopped turning


The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
