Sounds like a speed sensor in the motor has opened up. You need a repair shop my friend.

Runs fast about 78rpm.


You don't say if it's a belt or direct drive turntable. If it's a belt then something might have caused the belt to slip off it's normal position so it runs fast.
Direct drives are more complicated, but it would seem that the voltage control circuit that feeds the motor is applying to much to it and the therefore is faulty.

Turntable spinning to fast


Clearly an electrical fault. Could be something to do with the power supply or the speed control circuit, or even the motor itself.

Would changing the belt help as my turntable plays too fast.


A lot of turntables have two belt positions on each pulley. One for 33 and one for 45. I would check to make sure the belt hasn't slipped into the 45 position.

Hitachi Ht-354 direct drive. Why can't speed be adjusted?


Direct Drive turntable's have electronically controlled motors with complicated systems to keep them at the right speed.
My guess is that there could be a power supply issue that feeds one of the motors that is sending a much higher voltage to it. But that's just a guess. You might want to look around for the service manual for it to see how the motor is controlled.

The turn table is going round but its playing the record to fast the speed seems wrong


Hello!
are you sure, that your speed selector is on 33.3rpm, not 45?
assume, it's in correct speed settings. do you know, that across the ocean power grid AC frequency is 50hz, in US it's 60hz. Means: ac motor will spin faster, than it should. If you bought this unit abroad, that's where is your problem at. some expensive units have 50/60hz pulleys switch, some not. Especially, if it's DC or direct drive motor. Check your owner's manual for specifications. May be you find an answer. If not, there is a problem with motor's regulator, which is built in(DC motor). Turntable is a belt driven. If you won't find 50/60hz adjustments, take it to repair shop.
Good luck,
Alex.

Platter/motor won't turn


I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.

My Crosley turntable is spinning too fast at 33RPM


Mismatch speeds on older turntables is normally due to either 1) a kink in the speed switch mechanism or 2) a hardening and slipping of the rubber drive wheel.
A very small motor with a chamfered shaft drives the rubber drive wheel, and the wheel is moved by the speed control up and down the drive shaft to produce various rpm speeds.
In your case, it's likely turning at 45rpm because it isn't settling onto the 33rpm part of the shaft.
Piddle with the speed control, then count the speed (number of turns in a minute) You'll figure it out!

Turntable spinning backwards


If it is a direct drive TT then it uses some electronic circuitry to control speed and it sounds like that circuit is having a problem. Possibly the actual driver IC for the TT motor has gone bad. Good luck.
