SOURCE: Pioneer PL-300 Turntable plays records

No, I have a PL-300 and its directly driven by a DC motor. I have taken mine apart to clean once before and noticed some potentiometers on the bottom. (There are holes on the bottom of the plastic casing for easy access using a small flathead screwdriver) Those might be to adjust speed. They could also be for tone though... It might also be that the electronic quartz-based speed controller is broken. With these old things its never easy to tell whats wrong.

Lift off the rubber cover. On some turntables, you can pull the whole metal platter straight-up now. Put the belt on the outside of the bottom of the platter and drop platter back into the turntable base. Do NOT put the rubber cover back on yet. There should be one or two openings in the platter where you can see the pulley for the motor. Slowly rotate the turntable platter until the opening is over the top of the motor pulley. Now use a nail file to gently pull the rubber belt over the pulley. It should spin freely now. Now put the rubber cover back on and try it out. Belts are available from MCM Electronics and over online vendors. Let me know how it goes. Good luck my friend.

How to fix flutter & wow on a Gemini 500 XLii direct drive turntable


Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.

Crosley CR40 playing 33 1/2 too fast? What can I do to slow it just a little bit?


I would get a vintage turntable and not a new one inexpensive one. The new record players do not last.

My Jensen JTA 450 is playing LPs too slow even though 33RPM is already set. The songs are slower than usual. Please help me.


The record that you are trying to play maybe a 45rpm recording. Some 45's were released in album size recordings.

How can i fix my jta-460 from playing records slow


Check the RPM switch on the turntable is on the correct speed for the record you want to play. Otherwise it could be a belt problem internally.

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.

How do I remove the turntable platter on a Ferguson 3047?


Try looking at the spindle where the record hole goes. You might have to lift the mat somehow. There might a C Ring holding it.
