Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable

1 Answer

Speed increased +3rpm every half second

When I turn on my TT, everything is fine.  When I go to play a record now, the speed on both 33/45 seems fine.... Then every half second the speed increases slightly, then goes back to the 33/45 speed.  Any suggestions?

You have drive issues. There is no easy way to fix or to isolate the problem. You'll have to take it to a service technician who can test your unit, and fix the problem. Usually it's one of the 3 main IC (integrated circuits) which cause this problem.

Picture rolls on playback


Try cleaning the heads, but it seems like the heads may be faulty, you might need to replace the vcr, they don't cost much these days, the repair might cost more than a new vcr these days.

heres a cheap headcleaner, look for one at local shops, wallmart bestbuy and so on

Slow playback after recording.


Quality is definitely a factor here. Set tape speed to SP. Standard Play. It uses the most tape, and use a newer tape if possible.

You can also try converting to a newer format like MP4. This is the new standard for web videos. Older codecs might be an issue.

Playback on the turntable is sped up


The first step to resolving this issue is to select the appropriate RPM speed for the record that you have in hand. If it is not a simple 33 1/3 RPM record set on 45 RPM, then it would seem that the phono motor speed could require adjustment. Your phonograph is a belt-driven PX-E860 K with a DC servo motor.

Some people mistake the the 7"/LP record size LEVER for the rotational speed BUTTON (33 RPM when raised; 45 RPM when down).

In the case of needing to actually callibrate the rotational speed, underneath the unit there is a hole labeled "33" & a hole labeled "45." Using a very fine precision screwdriver, you can callibrate the speed of each. Insert the screwdriver into the repsective hole past the rubber & slightly turn the screw (rotational speed increases as you turn the screw clockwise).

Recording Speed


the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.

Turntable not turning to play record............. power on............ please help my email address - diatmesa@aol.com


This could be many things like the following>

If its a direct drive turntable the motor could be "blown",
or motor electonic speed controller burnt out.
If its a belt drive turntable then the belt could be broken
or stretched and is slipping, or the belt can have dropped of a drive pullety.
Also there are speed control mechanisms to adjust the final speed of the
turntable to the recorded speed of the record like 331/3rpm, 45rpm 75rpm
These speed reducing mechanisims can slip and cause the turntable not to turn..
There are also other mechanical bits that slide and push against each other,
and these can get sticky and the friction increases so much that the power
from the motor drive causes the belts to slip, so you need to identify if a
friction problem exists as well..

If you are carefull you can look your self and find out which one of the above it is.

Be warned there are lethal voltages inside the turntable which can kill you....
so please dont have the power on when making any inspection or adjustments.

Cheers From YUBEUT..

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.
