Hi Thanks for the information. On the front, there are 3 round button. The one on the left has selection for AM,FM,CD and Phono. Please turn the button toward right to select the phono. Load you cd, on the left side near the arm, there is a speed selector for 33 and 45. Choose you speed. Manually move the arm slowly and place it on the edge of the turn table and it will play for you.

I turned on the machine, put it on phono, put a record on the turntable, put the needle on the record. Nothing happens. What makes the turntable turn?
Expert:  electronicsguy replied 1 year ago.
There is a switch that is under the arm that enables the motor to run. Did you select the speed switch?
Expert:  electronicsguy replied 1 year ago.
This is optional if you would like to get a phone help

Yes I put it on the 33 1/3 speed. Cannot locate no switch. Is it by the needle or on the backside of the arm?
Expert:  electronicsguy replied 1 year ago.
The switch is activated by you lifting the arm. Nothing else you should be doing. It should be simple to get it going
