Old record player spins too slowly

I bought an old console record player/am/fm from a thrift store... it didn't turn, so i took it to a repair shop and the guy put in a rubber thing and it spun and played, so i took it home... after all that work (it's very heavy)! i put on a record i knew, and realized that it was playing too slow and distorted the sound. I have a 45/33 setting and its on the 33 setting for my regular albums. any help?

Remove c shaped pin at center of turntable with screwdriver. Put the blade in the slot and turn to dislodge clip. Pull up on turntable while rotating back and forth. Remove turntable. Remove idler tire the same way you removed the turntable. Look for ID#s. Replace the tire. Google search or find it on eBay. Clean and lube all pivot points. Use creamy phono lube (just a little) on the turntable pivots and just one drop of machine oil (sewing?) in the hole in the motor. Don't get any grease on the idler tire or the inner diameter of the turntable.

Cs 7400 needle and belt


The belt could be hard to find. but the needle should be easy enough. Most newer record players use a magnetic cartige. These can usually be found at most electronic stores and are standard.
To replace a magnetic cartrige just unscrew the old one from the record player, unhook the plug or four wires from the cartrige, then plug in the new cartrige the same as the old one was removed
and screw it back in. Magnetic cartriges run from 20 bucks to several hundred depending on the
quality. If just toying with the record player get a ceramic or saphire cartrige these are about twenty bucks. To get the best sound quality a diamond stylus is the best these run from 60 dollars to
several hundred. A good diamond stylus should usually cost around a hundred bucks.

As for the belt check around. Local radio company shops , music shops, and electronic repair shops should be able to order one for you. In the odd case their is no belt to be found for the record player. Or perhaps the record player was a tag sale find and not worth spending alot of money on you can "rubber band" it. Your local radio guy won't reccomend this because the record player will not syncronize as well and the rubber will wear out fast. The secret is finding the right combination of rubber bands you want enough tension to make the record player work but no so much as to bend the small wheel on the motor.

I can't find my receipt & the manual doesn't say any dates. I'd just like to know how old my vcr is to find out if it's worth repair. Thanks.


This VCR is a 2003 model. You can find a used VCR on craigslist.com or a local thrift shop. You could also get a DVD recorder.

One of my turntables is spinning out of control, no reaction to pitch or RPM changes. What could this be?


Sounds like the motor control circuitry has a fault, beyond the effects of maintenance adjustments. Quite often, a transistor and perhaps other active electronic components are used to provide a stable calibrated voltage that drives the platter motor. If one of these components fails, the drive motor can be fed the larger unregulated supply voltage; hence, the out of control platter speed. This can happen to belt drive or direct drive turntables. Not so with the old rim drive units. Unless you have technical experience in this area, you should have a stereo type tech look at it. I'd avoid the high end audiophile type repair services. Shop around for an old school regular tech, and the repair should be relatively inexpensive. FYI, I've seen these hi end shops charge $50 or $60 for a turntable belt that should only cost around $20. If you feel the repair estimate is too much, you can find good used turntables at some stereo stores, or even at some thrift shops for a fraction of replacement cost. Depends on your standards.

Turntable will not turn (spin)


It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.
