Question about Turntables
After a recent move I threw a record on to my turntable and got through one side and halfway through the other... and then mid song the Beatles turned into Alvin and the Chipmunks.
I can see any real damage to the player and the belt looks ok.. but is this a sign that its about to go? Is there any other reason this may be happening?
The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.

on the shaft in the center where the hole of the record goes there is a locking washer on it . you can carefully remove this with a thin knife of something similar . you may need to use a little force , it is on there pretty tight however it can be removed .good luck

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.

This appears to be a slight difference with the manufacturing lots that your turntable came from Technics (Panasonic). The pitch control is to set the speed for the varying AC Frequencies (Hz) available in the world. Set the speed for the Hz your local area electricity provider uses 50HZ for 50Hz and 60Hz for 60Hz. Once the "Pitch control" is set for the local Hz don't bother playing with it unless you want the interesting sounds from the turntable. As your other turntable's speed is increasing, the pitch is increasing as well but your ears haven't noticed the different tones since they are lower in Hz. I.E. the male Bass or Alto voice is lower in tone than a female Soprano voice, and when you speed up the two differing voices the one noticeable higher is the Soprano.
