There is something wrong with your drive system. Unfortunately, you will have to have a service professional take a look at this.

More than likely one of the Integrated Circuits (IC's) have gone bad and will need to be replaced - a common issue on the newer models.

There should be a "C" clip on the center post that holds the record in the middle. Pop that off and gently wiggle table up. Careful not to over stretch the belt. There could be a cover over the clip.

Recently purchased used Panasonic SL-HM42 turntable. Works, but turning a little slow on 33rpm (30-31rpms) says DC Servo System on the front. Don't see any set screws on bottom. would like to get platter...


How to tweak the playback speed on Panasonic SL-HM42 turntables
recently-purchased-used-panasonic-sl-jxgmd5u3zcskalhaccgps5fw-3-20.png

You will need:

  1. 1x small Philips screw driver
  2. 1x small flat-head screw driver
  3. An ear for correct pitch and a little bit of DIY skill!

Step 1 - Remove the wooden base plate

After ensuring that you've removed the the rubber turntable slip mat and securely docked the turntable arm, carefully flip the turntable over onto its lid to expose the wooden base plate, as per below.

Using the small Philips-head screw driver, remove the screws holding the wooden base plate in place, then gently lift the base plate off the turntable.

Step 2 - Expose the pitch adjustment screws

Once the wooden base plate is removed, you will see the speed-controller circuit board on the right-hand side.

To expose the the two speed/pitch-control screws, firstly remove the screw holding the speed-controller circuit board in place, then gently lift the circuit board up on the free side.

Step 3 - Correct the turntable playback speed and pitch

The easiest way I found to correct the playback speed was to flip the turntable carefully back into the original position, allowing the speed-controller circuit board to hang free as shown below.

recently-purchased-used-panasonic-sl-jxgmd5u3zcskalhaccgps5fw-3-60.png

Next, play a record that you know well and are able to tell when the speed/pitch is correct (assuming you have an ear for correct pitch, that is!), then at the same time using the small flat-head screwdriver, gently turn the speed adjustment screw(s) to adjust the playback speed up or down until the correct playback speed and pitch is achieved (or at least until it no longer annoys you ;).

Turning the screws clockwise (to the right) will increase the speed/pitch, and anticlockwise (to the left) will decrease the speed/pitch.

NB - Both screws allow for fine pitch control, so if the second is already at maximum speed, you can use the first screw for additional speed.
Step 4 - Reassemble the turntable again

When you're happy with the speed of your turntable, remove the record, the mat again & locking the turntable arm, replace the screw holding the speed-controller circuit in place (as per Step 2) and then finally replace the screws holding the wooden base plate, as per Step 1.
Happy listening!

Platter Grinding Noise on Aiwa PX-E860


Try to determine if the noise is caused by the motor or the platter touching something. Try moving the platter by hand. Press on it whilst turning to see if it's catching. If you can get the platter off you could try some silicone grease on places you think touch one another.

HMV Radiogram Turntable run slow at the start,


you should check under the table.
if it's a roller drive there, you can use water to clean the roller rubber and the inside edge of the platter.

If it's a belt drive, take it out and measure the length and get a replacement belt of same length

The turntable will not start spinning on its own, I have to spin it to get it to start, and when it does start spinning the speed is too slow. Is it just the belt?


You will need to check your belt for wear. Lift felt on platter and check belt tension. It may need replacing. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, taking note of the belt position. replace and your problem will be solved
