I have just fixed this problem on my Aiwa PX3800 with improvisation.
The platter was rotating too slowly, I didn't know how much too slow only that the records sounded wrong.
I imagined the belt, motor and platter as a bicycle gear and so simply increased the gear... I achieved this by winding a thin strip of a electrical insulation tape around the motor head to increase it's radius (like changing up to a larger front cog on a bicycle gear).
I could then time the rotations and remove a layer or two of the tape accordingly until I have achieved a perfect 45rpm. 33 is still way out but I only listen to 45s!
Be sure to trim excess tape from the motor head with a craft knife/scalpel or it'll stick to the platter.
Poor man fix up.

After trying all the adjustments that I could by moving the drive motor around in the available slots I've concluded that my trouble now must be with the drive motor itself. I have clocked the RPM speed in both the 33 and 45 settings and they register well below their requirements. Looks like I will have to check out the motor or just bite the bullet and buy a new turntable as this one is quite old..
Thanks.

New belt of Turntable and speed still wrong?


Hi,
Try to put one or two drops of oil in the shaft of the motor. be sure when you put the oil it should not spread on the pull where you put the belt. You will be able to see the shaft of the motor beneath the belt pulley. And also put one or two drops of oil in the center shaft one which the plater rotates. Probably this will rectify the problem of your turntable.

The turntable is not revolving at the correct speed slowing the record down


Sounds to me like your belt is streched. Under the felt of the turning section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Rotel rp1000 turntable rplaying too slow, new belt


HELLO

Check that your new belt is not too tight as this will slow the motor down as it tries to turn the platter. I would also suggest a little light oil (sewing machine oil is ideal - NOT WD40) on the motor spindle shaft where it goes through the motor itself it may be a little dry.

Clean off any gunk from the rim where the belt turns the platter and do the same on the pulley on the motor. Get some de-oxit (expensive but good) or SERVISOL to clean the speed change switch too.

ALL THE BEST!

Sony Belt Drive Turntable Platen speed


Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.

Sound wavers (speeds up and slows down)


you need to replace the Pitch controls. I'm presuming it is a sliding pitch control. Use the Red start stop lights that reflect on the rotating wheel. put the pitch in center 0. does one row of the dots on the wheel stay completely still.now just turn it up op down a bit until it starts to move the dots slightly. now watch the dots now while there moving. Do they fluctuate they should be smoothe. do this on both decks to find out which one is fluctuating.

Too slow?


http://www.archive.org/details/Turntable_Belt_Installation

above is a generic video that applies to almost all belt driven turntables including yours that will show how to install the belt and a few other things.

this can be caused be a new belt being too wide, you may need a narrower belt.
