Try changing out the capacitor on the underside of the platter. They will lose their rated value over time.......
The schematic shows a 1000 volt rating. I have three that I am referbing and all of them came from Pioneer with a 450 volt CAP.
Try replace it with one that is rated at least 450 volts.
Also - the closer the tolerance the better. See if you can find one that has a K rating, meaning it is +- 10%. The M rated ones are +-20%.

    You can also put some electrical tape around the rim of the platter where the belt rides. Just do one layer at a time. Do not stretch the tape when you put it on. Slightly overlap the tape then use a razor blade cut through both layers and remove the excess so the tape is completely level.

    One other thing you can do is put some electrical tape on the underside of the platter where the belt runs. Cut the end of the tape so it is a clean cut. Put a layer of tape on the surface being careful not to stretch it. Overlap the tape slightly. Use a razor blade to cut the tape where the overlap is. Then remove the two small pieces of the tape ends. This will give you a smooth layer of tape. Putting the tape on gives the belt a slightly further distance to travel which slows the belts revolution. If a single layer is not enough, add however many layers that it takes to get the platter to the correct speed.

My Pioneer PL-112D turntable has a broken drivebelt, is it possible to buy a new one, and is there a diagram showing the belt "routing". Thanks.

I don't believe this belt is being provided by the Pioneer. So I did find another option at a reasonable price on E-bay.

I have an old Pioneer stereo auto turntable PL-5.It is rarely used and worked fine until my grandson started to turn the turntable by hand and I think backwards.Now it speeds up and races.Can this be fixed...

if the speed is constantly fast the drive belt may have ridden up on the top part of the motor pulley.inspect and refit.if the speed varies check operation of 33/45 switch.

Pioneer PL-12D TURNTABLE. Plays too fast.

Judging by your message I guess it's a secondhand machine, you have either been given or purchased. I suspect that someone might have played around with the speed preset to the motor. Take a look around the deck see if you can find it, sometimes there are two, one for each speed. They should correct it, unless something has gone.
