Califone 1435k This record player from the 70s runs great and came highly recommended but the 33 records we're trying to play are sounding much too fast. Any ideas on how to fix this?


This is an idler wheel drive turntable that uses a small rubber wheel, that when engaged pushes on the motor spindle and also on the rim on the underside of the platter. The spindle on the motor is stepped so as you shift speed the idler wheel moves up or down the spindle and that changes the speed of the platter. It could be the the shifting mechanism is dodgy You can try to loosen it by gently shifting the speed from 78 to 16 and back again. But the idler wheel rubber might be in trouble too.

Califone 1030AV turntable plays slow


The usual cause is a dirty idler wheel. Clean the tire on the idler using alcohol or rubber cleaner. Make sure everything turns easily and check the height adjustment on the idler wheel. You may have to take the motor apart to clean and oil it (if not spinning freely).

Broken volume control on 1430K Califone


There is a mute switch on the headphone jack, inside the unit. If you feel competent, open it up and replace the jack.

Plugged it in and turned it on. Put a record on and moved the needle over. Nothing happened.


Hi.
From your description it sounds as though the drive belt requires replacing. If you are experienced, remove the platter to get the belt out carefully.
If you are not tchnicallly minded, take it to your nearest audio/hifi repair shop. should be no more than £20.00.

When boss dictates a letter I can barely hear any sound!


The tape might be getting old, replace it and see what happens.  If it is still acting up, It might be he is not recording properly or the recorder is bad.  Try talking directly into the mic and see if it is better.  If it is, he needs to talk louder or needs to hold it close.

Adjust pitch on a Califone turntable.


This one is actually fastened from underneath (inside). You need to open the player up and you will see the usual C shaped fastener on a cleat near the motor assembly. Most old direct drive record players have a C pin around the spindle that you can unfasten (pry with a twist) with a screwdriver. Irealize you figured this out yourself, but I'll take the guess work out for someone else... yeah..l you gotta take it apart!

Ya, this is a tough one. If it was on it's side, and not handle properly, something may have come loose and caused some damage inside. If you have absolutely no power, then more than likely the power transformer fried. Not much else in these things that could have caused such an issue. At this point, you have to decide whether it's worth getting repaired, or buying a working used one. They go on ebay for about $30-50, which is much cheaper than getting it repaired. Transformers for these units run around $20-30, then you have to tack on labor, which will be in the 40 min range - that's if its the transformer. But I do understand if it has some personal value, so that is something to consider. Hope this helps some. - Justin DJPROAUDIO
