Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders
33rpm is fine but when I depress the speed selector push-button for 45rpm the speed increases for a second and then decreases to below 33rpm and fluctuates under that speed. The deck sits on a platter which is driven by a belt around it and the motor spindle. The speed of the motor is controlled via the push-button selector which pushes a rod onto a lever which alters a switch position underneath a small PCB that connects via 4 wires to the motor.
Check that the lever is actually making the contact with the 45 rpm switch position and completing the circuit as it would seem everything else works. The only other thing it could be is a break on the pcb, but that is unlikely.
