Re: record speed

I think its a 3 prong IC chip that might be burned out. Its next to the power supply. You'll need to take it apart to see the replacement number on the chip. This is a belt drive unit, you can take the platter (the turntable itself) off and check inside. You can download the manual here: I hope this helps. Good luck :)

I have a turntable Thorens TD190 and i can't figure out what THE function is of the 17/30 switch? Can you help me?

It is a selector for record size. Ie. 30cm -12" records and 17cm-7" records. Cheers john.

I have a sony PS-LX33 turntable. When I try to play the record, the needle gets stuck in one position and will not move across the record. I have fitted a new stylus but still does not work. Can you help...

First check that you can move the arm right across the turntable platter. Do this without a record to avoid scratching it. If you can take it to the middle at the same height as a record then no mechanical fault is present.
That being OK it perhaps means that too much weight is being applied to the stylus. You can adjust it with the weight at the end of the arm. It should have numbers on, try it on 1 or 2 to start with - playing a record. The idea being to get the pressure just right without making it jump out of the groove or too heavy giving a rumble sound. It's a question of trial and error.

My Teac sl-a100 record player sounds like a chipmunk

somewhere on that player is a switch for 78-45-33 rpm the speed switch look up around by the tone arm above by where the record goes, it may not be on the front. switch it to the correct record you have 45's are small. 78's are medium and 33rpms are the big records..

My Sony PS-LX250H Turntable suddenly started playing records too fast for both 33 and 45 speeds. Any ideas on how to fix???

If this is a belt drive then most of these speed increases are caused by the belt being in the wrong position. The belt could be faulty and my need to be replaced. Otherwise it could be due to a power supply problem, such as a faulty regulator to the supply of the motor. A check on the voltage to the motor will determine this. Assuming you know what the correct voltage should be! Of course with luck it will be higher than the motor is supposed to run at.

I have hooked my turntable up to my stereo and even at full volume its extreamly quiet, is there a problem or is this stereo just not set to play records? do i need some sort os amplifier?

Hi, Remove the rubber mat on the platter, there is a toggle-switch for the pre-amp. With the power off, manually rotate the platter and it will become visible through the gaps. This should resolve the low volume issue. Hope this helps. Post back with your results and good luck.

Pitch fluctuation

It is caused by the turntable not turning steadily. More than likely it is mechanical probably caused by defective belt drive. If the change in pitch is in regular interval then more than likely it is mechanical. It can be caused electrically when current or voltage fluctuates casuing the turntable to go faster or slower. Fixing this problem requires opening the unit. Check the belt it may be loose or stretched or may a debris is stucked on it.

Won't stop

This is a common issue with the drive in these units. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix. You will need to take it to a qualified service center for repair.

Sony PS-LX250H speed problem

I have a different Sony model (PS-LX-150H) that had a similar problem. I hadn't used it in awhile, and then when I did, I noticed the speed problem.

IF your PS-LX250 is like my PS-LX150, there are small speed adjustment screws accessible from the bottom of the unit. On mine, the two adjustment screws were labeled - one for 33rpm, the other for 45 rpm. Basically I just fiddled a bit with them using a very small precision screw driver until I could verify that I had reached 33 rpm (I used a stopwatch and literally counted the number of rotations/minute after making adjustments.)

Now it sounds right!
