Question about Turntables
The speed on my SL-BD1 has started to vary up and down. If I try to adjust the pitch at a certain speed, the speed either doesn't change at all or suddenly changes abruptly. If I manage to set the pitch at a certain speed, after a few seconds the speed either drops or goes up significantly. I get the impression that the speed control might not be regulating the voltage properly, could this be the case? Could there be other parts that might be causing this irregularity? Again, I notice that this change in speed happens mostly while, or after, I have tried to adust the pitch.
If it does not brag about being "direct drive" on the front of the unit, then it is probably belt driven
will help you remove the platter to check the belt. if it is slipping it is the most likely cause.
