I just got a record player and there is no frickin on/off-switch. I know how to work a record player but how am I supposed to if it won't turn on?

Maybe plugging it in automatically turns it on?

Pretty sure it should turn on once you move the arm onto the record... but I'm not really sure as I haven't worked a record player since I was like 5

Mine turns off when you turn the volume all the way down, and on when you turn it up a little. Then you have to pull the tone arm towards the record to get it spinning.

My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.

How old is it? Most need to be plugged into a receiver first; if one's on, the other is too.


Otherwise, lift tone arm using the little lever, place is over record, lower tone arm.

Turning On A Record Player For Dummies:

1) Set the record player down before you ruin it.
2) Find the oldest fart nearest to your location.
3) Bring him to the record player.
4) Shout (politely you hooligan), "Work your magic gramps!"
5) Sit back and enjoy the tunes...

Be prepared for eternal embarrassment when gramps says "Son this contraption won't play a CD."

Step 1: Plug it in.
Step 2: Put the record on.
Step 3: Turn volume knob up, that should turn it on.
Step 4: Put the needle on the record, and enjoy outdated technology.

If there is no volume dial on the turntable unit, then you have bought something that won't work on its own - you'll need the rest of the hi-fi unit for it to work it (the section with the on/off, volume and other fancy dials). From the age of the model (1977-81) I'm guessing this is most probably the case.

Have you attached speakers?

Very astute observation, my friend.

Pretty sure Thorens and Stanton are male and hetero as well.
Garrard? Not sure, but I'm would guess gay.
Dual? Bi, of course.
Lyra and Victrola? Female.

This is what I have in my dining room. An original Edison, been restored of course, but it works, its a hand crank one, but you still have to put the stylus over the record for it to spin.
