SOURCE: only spinning at 1 speed

This is a high dollar turntable. If you want, take the screws out, open it up and check that the direct drive speed gear is in place. Other than that I would take it to a repair shop. There's one guy on ebay selling a new one for $500.00

SOURCE: Plays too fast

I had this same problem. You can adjust the speed, although it is a bit of a pain. If you turn the unit over you will see two little holes on the bottom labeled "33" and "45". You will need a small (jewelers) flat head screw driver. If you put the screw driver in the hole you will encounter a rubber cover. Push the screw driver through the rubber and go down a bit further and you will feel a screw. Turning this screw to the left (counter clockwise) makes the speed slower. Turn the screw to the left to make the speed faster.

For a picture you can download the service manual:

You can check the speed visually by downloading a strobe disc (I found one I like at To actually be able to see the strobe you need to do this under a lamp with a single fluorescent light bulb (fluorescent bulbs actually flicker a little bit at the same frequency as the electric supply).

The turntable is going too fast because the singing coming out sounds like the chipmunk's any trouble shooting tips??

You are likely playing a 33 rpm record while the turntable is set to 45 rpm. You need to find the speed control and adjust it to the media you are playing.

I have a Pioneer PL Z94 turntable that was working perfectly until belt snapped. Purchased new belt & stylus, fitted both, but when I came to play my records they speed up very fast on both 33 & 45. What...

The most likely cause is that the belt has been fitted in the wrong position.
If that is not the case, then you can look underneath the turntable at the base and see if you can see a speed pre-set (sometimes there are two, one for each speed). Turning this will adjust the speed. You might need a small screwdriver. Sometimes the hole for these pre-sets are covered with a sticker. If you find it, to get the speed right will be a case of trial and error. I find the best way to do this operation is to mount the turntable on a chair which has no seat in it. Thus meaning you can get to the underside while the disc plays.

Grundig 4400 / Audio Techinca T4P Turntable spins at 35 RPM instead of 33 RPM

I think you mean 45 rpm?
It sounds like you have got the belt in the wrong position. Try adjusting the position of the belt by experiment. Or you could look up the correct way to set up the belt.

Turntable runs at 45 spped when set to 33 1/3 and at 78 speed when set at 45 speed

This sounds like the belt, if it is a belt drive model, has slipped to the wrong position on the motor post. You should be able to set it back up right. As long as the belt is not worn out.
Any recordings at 45 can be converted to 78 using the software. There should be an option to do this. This applies to all other speed settings too. You can convert 33 to 45 etc using the same thing.

How to set turntable for 78's on GPX Model 7799

The only way I think they did that would be if there are speed preset buttons somewhere on the unit. These might be found under the turntable. Perhaps covered up with stickers. What you would do is put tha screwdriver in one if there's two! and adjust it while the disc was playing. To play it at 45 or 33 again you would need to reset it. Best to mark it where it is positioned before adjusting.
However if you are recording the 78's then you need only play them back at 45. The software should have an option to convert it to 78.

AFTER adjusting the speed setting to 33, all the records are playing too fast, they sound like chipmunks. I tried all three settings and while each speed is different from each other they all seem to be...

If it says your speed setting in on 33, than you have a problem with the speed control inside of the turntable, there is not much you can do in that area. 33 is the slowest speed too, so it seems like it is stuck on 45 or 78. Call Teac if you are still under warranty.

My turn table is going to fast when i play an record , what can i do to fix this? thanks

Hello the turn table has two speeds. 45rpm and 33rpm (rotations per minute) If you are playing a record that takes up the entire turntable you need to set it on 33rpm. For the records that only take up half of the turntable you want to set it on 45rpm. Setting the turntable on the wrong setting for a certain size record can make the record play to fast of to slow.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed

1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.


2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.

Strange speed

Well, there isn't much on this unit that controls the speed. It's either your belt or your motor that's gone or going bad. Try replacing the belt first. If you still have the same issue, you might need to have a tech look at it. The 33/45 switches might have also gone out, but it doesn't like this is the issue.

Hope this helps.
