sorry for not replying earlier. i wasn't at home for a couple of days.
i took off the platter and the motor started the turntable, as if i was going to play a record and measured the pins that connect to the motor. the pins that are marked in red had 19.5v, but the voltage wasn't stable, it would blink (like come and go) and the one marked in blue would vary from 14v to 18v.
i also looked at the 470uf/50v capacitor. from the outside it looked ok. i'm going to find a replacement capacitor. it's kind of hard to find the same type with the - and + connector on the top and button, so i just going to buy a normal one and figure something out. i have a 2200uf/50v nichicon, that one should also work yea?
NOTE: i just tried with a 2200uf capacitor and still no change. i also encountered some inconsistency in the rpms today while playing a record, then after a while it played ok again. when i run the motor with the platter it doesn't seem to spin smooth, like if it was coming and going.
