The 45rpm speed select button will not work

Hello, i have recently found that my 45rpm speed select button has been faulty, on and off. Now it is not working 100% of the time. Do you have any possible causes for the problem, and any possible methods to fix this problem? Can I try to pop off the button and then investigate from there? Or is this button not designed that way ? thank you very very much for any help you may have. Sincerely, Grant

Re: the 45rpm speed select button will not work

The 45 button is known as a push button switch. If the switch is affect, replacing should remedy, but it could be possible that the voltage variation on the motor is affected.

keep me posted.

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.

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.

I suspect that a fault has occured on the section that controls the speed of the motor. Perhaps an IC failure. If you have a look at any of the IC's on the motor board you could note down the numbers and look around on the net to see if they might give you clues to what they do, plus what they cost to replace or if they are obselete.

I don't know if this model is direct driven or by belt. If it's belt driven then the belt could be fitted incorrectly, or faulty. Another possibilty is that there's a fault in the motor control circuit.

Turntable 45rpm speed has stopped working

Check that the lever is actually making the contact with the 45 rpm switch position and completing the circuit as it would seem everything else works. The only other thing it could be is a break on the pcb, but that is unlikely.
