HELLO
I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.
ALL THE BEST!

1960's HMV stereogram won't change speed. Stuck on 78, how do I fix this?


Turntables this old use a rubber tyre pressed against an electric motor. The tyre is connected to speed control by some rods. Either the rods have got stuck, broken off, or the tyre is jammed. To gain access you need to go to the spindle of the record platter, you might have to lift off the rubber matt, plus anything around the centre of the spindle (often a silver disc). You should see a horseshoe clip. Take this off and the platter should pull off. Revealing the works.

Would changing the belt help as my turntable plays too fast.


A lot of turntables have two belt positions on each pulley. One for 33 and one for 45. I would check to make sure the belt hasn't slipped into the 45 position.

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 Sony PS-LX250H turntable will only spin at 45rpm. When i push the speed button for 33 it doesn't change. i also sometimes have to give the deck a little push to get it to spin.


I have the exact same problem for the same model. Only spins at 45 and I sometimes have to kick-start it. I tried de-activating the switch (so that it's not making a connection) and therefore in the 33 position but that does not help.

WHILST MIXING MUSIC ONE OF MY DECKS THE SPEED KEEPS CHANGING


Switches and other controls that permit the user to adjust the speed on the turntable often become erratic due to oxidation of the metal contacts contained therein. Dust and smoke add to the problem. Cleaning the controls with quality electronics-type contact cleaners usually gives years of happy service. The job is best left to someone familiar with the complete assembly since other finite adjustment potentiometers are often employed and located on the internal circuit board.

I can't hear music through computer speakers. Speakers are functional. I can hear low volume music from turntable. What's up?


Have you selected a different setting in the audio control section of your computer? For example: wave out, instead of line in or vice versa. Is the audio control input set low?

Left output from one of my turntables cuts out regularly leaving a hum


No, the issue is either with the RCA cables or the tonearm. You might also want to check your cartridge and headshell connection. Make sure the contacts are nice and clean, and securely on the headshell. Have you tried swapping out your turntables? Take the left turntable, and put it on the right channel's input, and vice-versa? This will tell help isolate the issue. If the problem just moves, then we know it's not your mixer. If the problem remains on the same side, then you know there is something wrong with your mixer.

If the problem moves, then you can safely say it's your turntable with the issue. The STR8-30's aren't the greatest quality, so it's also possible that you have a faulty tonearm or RCA cables.

Hope this helps.
