It's likely the belt has come off the correct position. It would need to be adjusted. One reason it's moved is that it needs replacing, because it's too slack.

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!

It could be that the belt has slipped out of place. You might even need a new belt!

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.

According to anything I can find online, like any decent turntable it has a manual pitch control. Unfortunately, I can't find a manual or even a good close-up picture.

This is the best one I've found.

The turntable is going too fast because the singing coming out sounds like the chipmunk's any trouble shooting tips??


You are likely playing a 33 rpm record while the turntable is set to 45 rpm. You need to find the speed control and adjust it to the media you are playing.

Even though i am playing my record on normal speed, it plays to fast


if your turntable doesn't have a pitch control (like the dj's turntables) if you open it you should find on the board close from the 45-33 rpm switch a variable resistor ( a small electronic part with a sort of disc on top with in the middle of it a place for a flat screw driver and marking like + and - those resistor are made to control the speed and can go bad or just need to be adjusted . First try to adjust it turning the dial really carefully with a small screw driver if nothing happened it could need to be replace.

Sony ps-lx250H turntable only spins at 45 RPM


It seems to me that the switch has broken and isn't moving to the 33 setting. You just need to find the switch. Without seeing it I can't say what type it is so I suggest looking for it under google image search. Try "micro switches" or "leaf switches". You can also look try Maplin, or the Curry's Partmaster website.

What's the correct way to use the strobe light to set turntable speed?


The turntable may have a pattern on the edge of the turntable. If not you need a turntable strobe disk that you place on the turntable like a record. The pattern on the disk or on the edge of the turntable will be marked for 50 Hz or 60 Hz frequency.
The strobe marks on the disk or on the turntable are for 33 RPM and 45 RPM and for both 50 & 60 Hz mains frequency.
To adjust the turntable for the correct RPM, turn on the strobe light and the turntable set it to 33 RPM and shine the strobe light on these marks and adjust the speed setting until the 33 RPM marks appear steady and not moving. You may want to check it for 45 RPM as well.
Make sure you use the correct mains frequency marks ie. the 50 or 60 Hz that your electricity system uses.

I have a Sony PS-LX210, and need to adjust the speed. Going by the music it's played, it's just a bit slow on 33 RPM (I don't know about 45). I find no external adjustments, but there are some trim pots...

WHEN I PLAY A 331/2 RPM LP IT SOUNDS A LITTLE


The needle itself will not induce drag on the record. Even worn needles play no role in the problem you describe. The belt, provided it has suffcient tension to turn the platter, is doing it's job. The most likely source of malfunction is the motor itself. Try sliding the speed switch back and forth while the turntable is turning. If you see no difference in the speed between the 33 1/3 rpm setting and the 45 rpm setting, you have most likely eliminated all sources of the malfunction other than the motor. They are very prone to failure. If a replacement can be found, the job of installing it is not particularly difficult but indeed should be left to someone skilled at soldering electronic parts.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed


1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.

or

2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.
