Question about Gemini PT-1000 II Turntable
One of my direct drive turntables is spinning to fast and cant seem to change the speed or stop and start it without having to power off and on, can someone please help! Also is there anywhere i might be able to get a user manual from? Cheers Lee
Clearly an electrical fault. Could be something to do with the power supply or the speed control circuit, or even the motor itself.
For the manual visit the Gemini website.

One ov my decks (same Gemini PT-1000 II) had the same problem. Just open it and clean the micro switches underneath the big buttons. It worked fine for me.

Since it's Direct Drive there's no belt to fall off. There is an electronic brake.
Could your problem have something to do with the Reverse function? Check the L.E.D. Perhaps cycling it will help.
USING THE REVERSE BUTTON:
1. Press the REVERSE (17) button to reverse the rotation of the
PLATTER (2) (the REVERSE LED (17A) will light while in reverse
mode). Press the REVERSE BUTTON a second time to return to

SOURCE: my 33 & 45 speed giving problems
I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.
ALL THE BEST!

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.
