SOURCE: Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.

http://www.vinylengine.com/library/pioneer/pl-570.shtml
on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!

SOURCE: converting a turntable from automatic to manual

I suppose the only way to do it would be to stop it functioning completely. The only way would be to dissasemble the auto function. What you would need to do is work out which parts are essential for the turntable operation and which only activate the return. So you need to whatch the mechanism working. You will need to remove the base and look at from underneath, just like going underneath a car!
I can't say for certain if you can do it, only you will be able to determine it can be removed without affecting the operation of the entire turntable.

SOURCE: tonearm on turntable wont stay on record

Remove the motor assy and you will see the main nylon large gear, it had 2 metal cams under the one screw on top of it. One is the start cam and it must slide freely on top of the other one cam. Over time the grease binds up under the start cam and it doesnt move back in as the motor moves the nylon cogs around and so it start over gain and again. Degrease and lightly lube the metal cam so it moves freely by using your finger, reassemble and test.

SOURCE: How can i use a pioneer PL-Z93 turntable with a pioneer A-717 amp?

Hi, there is no reason for the turntable not to work with your amp. This amp has 2 phono inputs. Moving magnet and moving coil. Your tt likely has a moving magnet cartridge fitted so connect via that input. Cheers John. styluscity.com

KT 750. Why doesn't tonearm return at the end of a record?


i do not think this is an automatic turntable. Most higher end turntables are not. You will just have to pick the tonearm up and put it back. If you want an automatic one, look for an older technics automatic turntable. They work pretty good for what they are.

You can find these cheaply. Will need at least 1 amp, but no harm giving it 2 or more. Maybe you can locate the motor's information

Aiwa turntable px-e860: Hi, I've inherited this timetable from a friend and it's worked fine until recently but now here's the problem: if I push start, the arm lifts up, moves to the record...


Hi, I;m not familiar with that exact model however the problem you are describing is commonly caused by the automatic operation at some point not being allowed to complete its full operation. Ie the tonearm has been returned manually to its rest position before reaching the end of the record. Try this. With the player not powered up lift the tonearm across to the record run off groove and sit it there. You may feel some resistance which is normal as the mech has to eswt itself. Now turn on the power and turntable. The arm should automatically return from there to its rest. Try auto operation after that. Let me know how you go. Cheers John. styluscity@gmail.com

Tonearm goes to record and returns to start position without ever playing the record


Do you have an adjustable piece at the end nearest the pivot point [the bit that goes into the turntable] if you do then adjust the weight so there is more downward pressure on the record [ or just try putting weight on the tonearm ] and see if this helps

Did the problem exist on its own uncorrelated to anything you may have done?

Does it return and cycle itself off or is it just rebounding aimlessly?

Unfortunately, there are no user adjustments for tracking, antiskate, end-of-play-return, etc. The only recommendation from the manual is to make sure the turntable is level and the records are clean and unscratched.
