You might try cleaning the motor shaft and belt with isopropilic alcool to remove any trace of grease that might make tre belt slip.

The turntable on the Crosley I have just brought,spins round unevenly(up and down),is this a problem as it plays some records ok but will not play others.


The platter should be level. If it is not then it could either be warped, by oil, heat affecting in the past. Or just faulty. Even if a warped turntable plays a record OK, it could damage it, as it is so easy for a record to be damaged, it could cause a scratch on the record. It should be checked out.

How to fix flutter & wow on a Gemini 500 XLii direct drive turntable


Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.

Turntable out of Tune


it will be the turntable speed not exact
quality turntables have bars all around the circumference and when the speed is correct under a fluro light those bars will appear as stationary or using a strobe light set at 50 or 60 cycles a sec
bars going anticlockwise are too fast and moving forward are too slow
quality tables have a small knob or screw to adjust motor speed

Yorx turntable speed issue, And turntable is warped.


You may be experiencing Acoustic Feedback, although it doesn't really make any sense the way you describe it. Make sure the tonearm is balanced and the proper weight is dialed in on same. Does it make any difference if the volume or bass are turned down, which my point to the Acoustic Feedback.

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.

Regards,
BElectric

My turn table is going to fast when i play an record , what can i do to fix this? thanks


Hello the turn table has two speeds. 45rpm and 33rpm (rotations per minute) If you are playing a record that takes up the entire turntable you need to set it on 33rpm. For the records that only take up half of the turntable you want to set it on 45rpm. Setting the turntable on the wrong setting for a certain size record can make the record play to fast of to slow.

Lp starts off sounding good..shortly after sounds like a warped record.


It would sound like the speed control is not functioning and changing speed up and down. That might sound like a warped record as you describe it. You can try moving the controls and cleaning them with a commercial contact cleaner.

Teac P-988 Everything sounds slow/warped


not passing the "wow and flutter" specs, eh?
The most common cause of this is a loose or defective belt. An inferior belt will have varying thicknesses along it's length. When it hits a skinny part, it will slow slightly. When it hits the thick part, it will speed slightly. Overall effect is that the record sounds warped.
needledoctor.com has got some good stuff.
