Vector research vt-200 turntable turning too fast

I have a turntable (vector research vt-200) that I inherited from the garage that has no service manual. It's been working fine for years, but since my recent move I've been having a problem with the speed. It's turning just slightly too fast. It's set to the 33, the pitch is properly placed. I've seen a lot of "adjust the motor screw" answers online, but I have no idea if this is even the problem and I've been relatively unsuccessful with breaking it down to find said screw. Any advice would be appreciated. I really don't want to junk this turntable unless I have to! Thanks!

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Cannot adjust speed on a vintage Technics SL-B30 Turntable

More than likely it is a faulty drive IC (Integrated Circuit). If so, your out of luck, because most parts for this unit are discontinued, with the exception of the belt.

There really isn't much else you can do. Will probably cost too much to repair, if you can find someone who can repair it.

Sorry couldn't be of much more help.

Hi!
Make shure that is a 50Hz turntable. If you connect a 60 Hz turntable in a 50 Hz system, the result is aprox 28 RPM in the 33 RPM position/

My toshiba sm 200 will not turn fast enough, I have it set to 45 and it will not even play 33 vinyls fast enough. How do I fix this?


Hi, chances are the belt is stretched and slipping. Remove the platter and place the belt around the platter pulley only. Turn platter over to right side up. If the belt drops off it is no good. I have belts in stock. Cheers John. Styluscity@gmail.com

My turn table is going to fast when i play an record , what can i do to fix this? thanks


Hello the turn table has two speeds. 45rpm and 33rpm (rotations per minute) If you are playing a record that takes up the entire turntable you need to set it on 33rpm. For the records that only take up half of the turntable you want to set it on 45rpm. Setting the turntable on the wrong setting for a certain size record can make the record play to fast of to slow.

My 400 watt inverter will not charge my laptop the fuse keeps blowing?


Your laptop PS has big condensers in the input. Even supplied by mains through 6A quick fuse or automatic breaker it will drop first time, but may hold the second. Your inverter may be has fast fuse 2 - 5 A. If not so fast it may carry the initial load.

Hint: If you are not "both left handed" you can connect  20 - 200 Ohm (2 - 10 W) resistor in series to your Laptop Power Supply. After the initial start of the inverter you can shorten the resistor by a 3 - 5 A switch.

1. Check to see that the end of record switch is OK or not shorted, same with the reject button on the back and all associated connections.
2. THESE THINGS NEED OIL! The trip lever (just to the right of the tonearm) may not be resetting fast enough, or at all, due to gummy grease. Buy the manual (eBay - any service man will insist that you have it.). It will show you where to lubricate everything. NO 3-in-1 or paraffin based oils.
