Issue with my Denon dp-300f

Post by nilsje4 » 16 Feb 2019 02:15

Hello everyone,

I have an automatic Denon DP-300F turntable.
I've been using it for several weeks now but now i have a problem with it's functioning.

Yesterday when i tried to put on a record by pressing the start button, the tonearm would go halfway to the record, then the tonearm stopped and so did the platter. None of the buttons seemed to work anymore until i manually pushed the platter and the tonearm went into the right position and came down. Then i pressed the start button again and it seemed to work fine. Later however when a record was playing the platter would just stop all of a sudden. And i had to do it all again.

I just started using turntables so i know pretty much nothing about it.

Would anyone here happen to know what's wrong with my turntable?


Thanks in advance for the help.

Apparently, reviews from other sites reveal less than pleased customers for this unit.
Contact Denon, but if past the lousy 2 year warranty, it'll be a pain.

They sure don't make 'em like they used to.
