SOURCE: optimus lab 1100 truntable will not operate.

this is a belt driven platter. the belt is old and fell off. http://www.archive.org/details/Turntable_Belt_Installation

this link shows how to replace a belt, once you see where the belt goes thread a piece of string through the mechanism where the belt should go and measure it and contact them with the length. or measure total length of the old belt if still in one piece. figure about $14 for most belts.

SOURCE: The wires connecting the play

The Levitator is a tone arm "auto lifter" for turn tables and record players that do not have an "auto-return" feature, or has one that is broken. If your needle rides in the "wax trail-off" area of a record it can damage the needle, along with making a horrible noise. It is not enjoyable to have to babysit your records and manually take your tone arm off the record the moment it is done. The Levitator does it for you so you can relax and go about your business. When the record is done the tone arm trips the lever triggering the lifter to raise your tone arm/needle off the record. It is designed with adjustable height to fit any turntable. These are available for sale through Ebay,or please see video to order your own. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PS6g9rQRF9M&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

My Optimus LAB 1100 is playing 45s ok but the 33s sound like the chipmunks


the turntable speed is incorrect
adjust with the speed control setting
many quality turn tables have bar codes around the outside edge and when viewed under a light those bars appear to be stationary when the correct table speed is set
It is a strobe affect in time with the frequency of the light
