Question about Stanton STR8-30 Turntable
I've heard this from one other person so I know it is an issue because it is weird on how it would ever happen. On both of my Stanton STR8-30's the pitch control does not have the range from 0 to -2.
when you have the slider at 0, the red lights are still... as you move the slider up (slower) the light remains still and then in an instant ( i mean nano ) the red lights jump was slower and now you are at -2 on the pitch when you've barely moved it. This has happened on both of my tables. WTF?
I just had a spindle lock issue this past Sunday at my gig. I had the turntables out in my car and brought them in. I let then warm up for 2hrs before plugging them in.
Everything was good. Then mid set my right side turntable started spinning really fast and then DEAD STOP.
I was pushing the platter and it really hard to turn. I took off the platter and tried to turn it with my hand. It was dead locked, WTF?!!
So I limped through with one turntables since I use Traktor Scratch Pro and made it through the whole night successfully.
I searched the net and it was suggested to lubricate the 1200 spindle with 15W40 motor oil. Since the motor design is indentical, I picked up some 10W40 motor oil since I couldn't find 15W40.
I oiled both turntables to be on the safe since. I tapped the spindle on the locked turntable to help loosen it.
I drove back home which is pretty much an hour drive and let the tables sit for another 2 hrs.
I decided to grab a thick towel and vice grips to work on the locked spindle.
Clamping down on the towel with the vice grips on the brass fitting for the platter I was able to free the spindle quite easily.
I was then able to turn it by hands so I did in both forward and reverse directions to work the oil down into the spindle bearings.
I put the platter back on and spun it manually to check for resistance, it was spinning nicely!
Plugged in the turntable, set the pitch at 0 and watched the stobe dots. There was no waver in the strobe dots. YAAAAAAAY!
My turntable is back to new and since I only use them on the road they stay stored most of the time.
So I would suggest just oiling the spindles every so often to keep them tip top.
Hope this helps you!

I personally didn't have any screen issues with my iPhone 5 although
a friend of mine told me that he have experienced a bubble effect. When he
presses the phone, no matter where, there were a certain spot on the bottom of
the phone that glowed in a bubble shape, you can watch the attach video to see
is you got the same problem http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4kYbiygU6A&feature=player_embedded
