Pjam,
Had the same problem & checked around on the net. Several people tried replacing the belt, but it had no effect. Spoke w/ several repair shops around the country and they concur with what I'd read on the net - bad motors. 3 or 4 repair/supply shops told me getting a motor would be impossible. Since I only listen to 33-1/3 LP's, I messed around w/ it a little and found a solution. Take the turntable out of the unit & you will find a small circuit board attached to the bottom. On that board is a small square blue fixture w/ a white circular "dial" in the middle (has grooves to accept a small straight blade or a phillips screw driver). This controls the voltage to the motor, which in turn controls the motor RPM's. If you set the selector switch to 78, you can experiment /w turning that white circular "dial" to slow the motor down. It isn't very hard to get the speed set properly. The down side is that you will only be able to play 33-1/3 LP's, but they are probably the most common anyways. I assume you could do the same to set the speed for a 45, rather than a 33-1/3. Down side is that you will only be able to play 1 size LP on the 78 speed setting, but it's an easy adjustment that can keep an otherwise in-op turntable functioning. Good luck!

I don't know how to get the turn table to start


Once the turntable mode is selected picking up the arm and moving it to the record should start the deck spinning.

How can I fix the speed myself on a Steepletone ST918 record player ? 33rpm plays LP's at 45rpm !!!!


I am not familiar with this brand, but many turn tables adjust the speed using a rubber wheel and a turntable motor with different shaft sizes. The shaft is ground smaller in steps the further from the motor. As the rubber wheel is moved up the shaft, the slower the turn table spins. Most times you can lift the turntable up (may have a clip to hold it in place) and look to see if the wheel moves up and down on the shaft as you shift speeds.

Pitch is off--too slow before, now too fast.


The speed is set by a synchronous motor that drives the turn table. There may be a small adjustable resistor (pot) that will do the trick.

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

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.

Turntable will not turn


I should imagine the belt has either slipped off or broke. If you lift up the turntable matt you might see it.

The turntable is not revolving at the correct speed slowing the record down


Sounds to me like your belt is streched. Under the felt of the turning section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Crosley Record Player Stopped Spinning...


I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.

After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.

You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(

I own a Bush RP A3 turntable and radio with CD=need instructions


FIRST READ ALL, then check cables u need, then proceed!


u want to connect turntable to pc - don't need usb

or connect turntable audio-out to radio/cd.player and this combination to pc?

recording on mp3 player is an option, but quality else is much better!

u will need for case 1:


a pc-program called audio-grabber 1.83, downloadable on the inet
a pc with soundcard that has audio-in (3.5mmplug, also used for small microphones
and earphones)
and at least win 2000 on it
the cable connecting turntable and pc(see following)


if turntable has audio-out like

- two red and black-cinch ports (to connect to amplifier/radio)
you need adaptor cable from 2-plug (red/black, male) to 3.5mm audio-in (similiar tor headphones,
male version)


- turn-table has small(3.5mm) or big (6.3mm) earphone-in,
use signal from here, connect tt with pc using adaptor cable
(3.5mm, male + 6.3 to 3.5mm separate adappor (small earphone to fit in big) at one end and
3.5mm, male to plug into pc-soundcard's audio in)


do all the pluggin', then turn on PC, start up audiograbber, turn on tt let play, press record button
in audio grabber, make an test recording, half a minute will do.
now let audiograbber sample theresulting .ogg file to test.mp3 and test-play it with windows media player on your pc

voila une mp3 !

to have every song from vinyl sepatetly as mp3,
record and name it serately in audiograbber, let it sample down to mp3 and enjoy!
u may have to fiddle through audio-grabber's menus and adjust volume, sample rate(quality of mp3)
to your comfort, but now u own legal copies of your vinyls, with still the analog vinyl tickle
and know how to use audio grabber as an recording tool for any music that is played on or put into a pc, incl. webradio other webcasts


please don't stop the music
