Turntable running slow


Hi Ken,

it is a Technics Frequency Generator Servo (Belt drive SL-23). I have four different belts and neither one of them works. Two are too slow and one is too fast and the other one is slow and fast.

I changed the belt before that I got off of an old turn table. It deteriorated.

I would appreciate any help.

So far I am also having Gateway Monitor problems and Canon Mp560 printer problems

Thank you,.

Turntable out of Tune


it will be the turntable speed not exact
quality turntables have bars all around the circumference and when the speed is correct under a fluro light those bars will appear as stationary or using a strobe light set at 50 or 60 cycles a sec
bars going anticlockwise are too fast and moving forward are too slow
quality tables have a small knob or screw to adjust motor speed

The turn table is going round but its playing the record to fast the speed seems wrong


Hello!
are you sure, that your speed selector is on 33.3rpm, not 45?
assume, it's in correct speed settings. do you know, that across the ocean power grid AC frequency is 50hz, in US it's 60hz. Means: ac motor will spin faster, than it should. If you bought this unit abroad, that's where is your problem at. some expensive units have 50/60hz pulleys switch, some not. Especially, if it's DC or direct drive motor. Check your owner's manual for specifications. May be you find an answer. If not, there is a problem with motor's regulator, which is built in(DC motor). Turntable is a belt driven. If you won't find 50/60hz adjustments, take it to repair shop.
Good luck,
Alex.

Motor problem?


If its still working then GREAT! The direct drive system uses magnetic frequency to drive the table platter. If you havnt already....Remove the platter and clean the coke off the magnet under it. Not sure at this point but hope that helps!

Turntable spins to fast


The motors are a common problem with this
model! Replace it to correct but I suspect the
motor regulator ic which is not avalible is the
real problem!

Numark ttx wont spin


some tables require the tonearm to be over the record area before the patter starts to spin. If thats not it, have you tried "jump starting" the platter with your finger? the direct drive "stepper" motor might be confused as to where it is at the moment. and finally remove power from the wall for a few minutes then retry.

Zenith phonograph turntable spins unevenly


I assume you mean the t-table turns with unsteady speed (?)
Or do you mean the t-table is bent, edge moves up and down in relation to the frame.
If speed is unsteady, have unit completely cleaned and lubricated and replace idler wheel

Suitcase Turntable stopped turning


Check the drive band- it may have come off the pulley. But if it is a new purchase then perhaps it should go back to the vendor
