SOURCE: Realistic LAB-500 turntable at 33 1/3 jumps to 45 rpm

go to this site?
possibly your capstan needs cleaning? remove the platter and locate the capstan which is usually made of brass? if it is dirty, ie; black use cotton balls and neat alcohol (spirits ) to clean it. also, consider changing the belt as it may have stretched?

SOURCE: how do I replace the belt on my Realistic LAB-1500

Getting Started

  1. Remove the rubber platter mat if your turntable uses one. Set it aside.
  2. Lift the platter straight up and off the center spindle to expose the turntable belt.
  3. Remove the original belt and check it for wear. Generally, a turntable belt doesn't slip unless it's damaged. If it is damaged, purchase a new one.
For a Two-Piece Platter Turntable
  1. Loop the replacement turntable belt around the cylinder located underneath the platter.
  2. Check that the belt is working properly by turning the platter clockwise two or three rotations. It should smoothly move along the motor pulley. If it doesn't, adjust it and turn it again.
  3. Replace the platter, and then carefully lay the rubber platter mat over it.
  4. Turn on the turntable and check it for correct movement. If it looks like it's working, play a record to make sure all is in order.
For a One-Piece Platter Turntable
  1. Loop the replacement belt around the cylinder located underneath the platter.
  2. Replace the platter carefully. One-piece platter turntables are delicate, and if you force the platter down or push it at an angle, you might damage the platter or spindle.
  3. Turn the platter so the hole in it lines up with the motor pulley.
  4. Pull the turntable belt and loop it over the motor pulley. Position it on the pulley groove to make sure it won't slip.
  5. Rotate the platter clockwise to make sure the belt is firmly in the pulley grove. Moving it two or three times ensures that it's in place.
  6. Put the rubber turntable mat back on the platter.
  7. Turn on the turntable. Play a record if it looks like everything is working to check the speed.

Why is the red square always flashing on the display go video model ddv-d550?

That would be the timer record indicator. It has either a setting that has not completed (due to a transmission error) or you have set something by mistake to record something on a daily basis and is waiting to be shut down or have something to record on inserted.
Clearing the record screen should clear this. If it doesn't then is a system fault. If this uses a tape, the mode switch will be faulty.

It seems like you need to adjust the pitch control. Try looking at the platter strobe light and seeing if it is at the correct speed. If not adjust the pitch control until you can see the dots align. As for the not returning, your automatic motor may be busted.

What is required to convert 78rpm records to mp3 format?

The cartridge must have a stylus for 78rpm records. If the turntable does not have a 78 speed play it back at 45rpm. Record it and using the software you have or get one such as Audio Cleaning Lab, just select the option to convert from 45 to 78. You can then carry out any audio modifications to clean it up, then save it as an MP3.
Never use a 45/33 stylus to play a 78 and never use a 78 to play a 45/33 record.

Check and clean the battery contacts as this is sometimes the fault when the camera draws more power and due to dirty or poor contacts on the battery or the camera contacts the camera shuts down due to low power. Hope that works.

Do you need I- tunes to work

No only to transfer any MP3 to an Ipod.
If you can hear the sound from the turntable on your computer, you can get software such as Magix Audio Cleaning Lab to record and convert it.
