So I was messing around with my keyboard the other day, and started making random hip hop beats. I went to my basement, and found an old record player/turntable.

It's basically one of these, but much older.

Anyhow, I plugged it in, and it won't spin. It only makes a sort of grinding noise when I put the arm over the turntable.

So Pit, anyone here know what the problem might be?

You, good sir, have not gone over to your friends house after a hard night of drinking to find 2 dudes passed out in the same room both holding their own flaccid cocks in hand, passed out, with porn on the tv.

but seriously sounds like that's a decent model, should be worth fixing if you can


lol. It does appear to be decent. The site says that the new ones retail for $550. I'd like to be able to do something with it.

Have you taken it apart?
I walk the line between fantasy and reality. One is more fun, the other is where the food is.

Why on earth did I think of Patrick Swayze?

Lift the platter off and clean the gear train.

I did take the platter off to investigate. I didn't want to mess with anything seeing how I'm not too great with putting things back together after I've taken them apart.

those SL1200s are direct drive, so buzzing is indicative of motor troubles. best case scenario, a little oiling of the gears will do the trick. worst case, you're looking at a new motor.

in either case, get it fixed cause it's worth more functional than broken, even if you spend a few bucks fixing it

Thanks for the help guys. I'll see what I can do about cleaning/oiling the gears. What should I use to oil the gears?

Does it turn with the platter off?

No, the gears don't appear to move at all.

Yeah. It's a little stiff though. I think some oiling might do the trick. I'll post some pictures if you guys think it'll be helpful.

I know what it looks like. Use a little LPS on it and just turn it by hand for a while. If it loosens up try running it again. If it doesn't loosen up the motor most likely has a spun bearing and it's junk.
