Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

My DUAL 714Q turntables speed is out of control.

The speed goes so fast that the records just sounds like squeeling. The pitch does nothing. Is there a blown control chip? it has an electronic direct drive and quartz phase locked loop.

Your best bet is to get a good quality switch contact cleaner to clean all the contacts on the speed control switches.
I guess the contacts inside the switches will have corroded slightly with your turntable having been stored in the garage.

SOURCE: sound wavers (speeds up and slows down)

you need to replace the Pitch controls. I'm presuming it is a sliding pitch control. Use the Red start stop lights that reflect on the rotating wheel. put the pitch in center 0. does one row of the dots on the wheel stay completely still.now just turn it up op down a bit until it starts to move the dots slightly. now watch the dots now while there moving. Do they fluctuate they should be smoothe. do this on both decks to find out which one is fluctuating.

SOURCE: Pioneer PL-630 turntable won't hold correct speed

Replace the speed selector switch, if you can still get one...They were prone to oxidation caused by gasses emitted from the rubber foot close by... The Pioneer remedy was change switch AND rubber foot for a neoprene one

My Gemini TT 02 gets stuck at 45 RPM. To get back to 33 you have to turn off and on again. Also the pitch is wildly out by about +7. Is there any way I can repair this?


Your terminology confuses.

Point 1. Why to you say, "Stuck?" Does it not make sense as a possiblity that the designers sought to prevent rotaton speed from being changed mid playback, especially on, say, an LP (long play) album with different side (stereo instead of 45 monaural) grooving. What would be the imperative of changing record speed in that manner...only one record type will play at a time. If changer, only one type record seriies can be played, all at the same speed.

Point 2. ...about "pitch...wildly out by about +7.

First, what are you meaning by pitch and by + (not -) 7. Since there is, to my knowlege, no record spin criterion known as pitch, are you referring to spin speed; hence to playback sound frequency, whether steady state or variable? If there is no user control of platter rotation speed on your unitn there would be little you can do other than to ensure all parts above and below platter are running smoothly with no drag or interference...possibly even lightening the record load on the platter, if a changer; and making sure records are clean to prevent slippage by washing with water or soap and water and air drying--avoid label. If your turntable is optically speed controlled (by timing marks on platter rim) those are typically adjustable to hasten or slow platter speed and therefore playback frequency pitch to your liking. "Wild variation" could reflect mechanical impedance as indicated above. Also check for record warping by trying known true record playback. Finallly, wild variation could be indicator of platter motor end of life cycle. Start pricing a motor if nothing helps.

I still don't follow the significance of the speculative(?) 7. Please explain if possible.

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.

My records that are 33 and 1/3 don't play at that speed on my turntable. they sound more like a 30 speed, what do I do


Hello Rosie,

Some turntables have a pitch adjustment feature which allows you to speed up or slow down your records. The adjustment controller is usually a slider or a wheel somewhere on the turntable and is usually labelled "Pitch" "Adjust / Adj" or "Pitch Adj".

Please check for this feature on your turntable then get back to me if you are unable to find it. Please include the brand and model number of your turntable.

Hope this helps.

This turntable goes to fast


I am sure you meant "TOO" fast...please be more specific. Remember, we vannot see your turntable from here, so "this turntable" doesn't help us much.
I have no idea if there's a pitch adjust on it, if it's belt or direct drive, DC servo or stepper controlled, nothing. You need to tell us that "My turntable model X by company Y is turning Z% too fast" filling in for x, y and z. if it sounds like it's just a little fast, z might be 5%. if it's going twice the speed it should, then z might be 100% - give a best estimate for Z but be accurate with everything else.

My stanton t50 turntable plays too fast even when the pitch fader is at the slowest speed


You need to calibrate your pitch control. This requires a small precision screwdriver (similar to something you would repair eye glasses with). If you look under the turntable where the pitch control is you will find 2 small holes, 1 marked 33 and 1 marked 45. Turn the turntable on and set the pitch control lever to zero pitch. While the turntable is spinning insert the screw driver into the pitch calibration hole under the turntable and twist the potentiometer back and forth until the turntable pitch is zero (I believe clockwise is faster, counterclockwise is slower as you look up from the bottom of the turntable). This is a fine tune adjustment and will not require much turning to adjust the speed (1 or 2 mm's) either way should start to bring you into zero pitch. The platter speed can be verified by the little dots on the rim of the platter. They should appear stationary in strobe light on the power switch when you are at zero pitch. When you are adjusting the speed you will observe the dots on the platter rim spinning clockwise and then counterclockwise as you adjust the fine tuning. Fine tune the speed until the dots appear stationary and you will be back to zero pitch. You have to adjust the turntable at both speeds 33 and 45 using the correct fine tuning hole under the turntable. My personal experience is it is easiest to do this with 2 people. 1 person to hold the turntable level and running, while the other adjusts the fine tuning. Hope this helps.
