My teac pa688 plays only on 45 now the turntable wont start just hums thru amp

If it's a belt drive the belt could have become slack or something and slipped off it's correct position.

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.

Turntable won't stop spining

If it is a turnatable that starts spining when the arm is moved to the record, then more than likely the start/stop switch inside the turnable is broken and is fixed in the on position. Or the leaver mechanism has become detached from the arm when the record was playing and left the other part pressing on the same switch that turns the motor on or off.
Removing the bottom of the turntable should should show the trouble.

The turn table is going round but its playing the record to fast the speed seems wrong

are you sure, that your speed selector is on 33.3rpm, not 45?
assume, it's in correct speed settings. do you know, that across the ocean power grid AC frequency is 50hz, in US it's 60hz. Means: ac motor will spin faster, than it should. If you bought this unit abroad, that's where is your problem at. some expensive units have 50/60hz pulleys switch, some not. Especially, if it's DC or direct drive motor. Check your owner's manual for specifications. May be you find an answer. If not, there is a problem with motor's regulator, which is built in(DC motor). Turntable is a belt driven. If you won't find 50/60hz adjustments, take it to repair shop.
Good luck,

My Sony PS-LX250H Turntable suddenly started playing records too fast for both 33 and 45 speeds. Any ideas on how to fix???

If this is a belt drive then most of these speed increases are caused by the belt being in the wrong position. The belt could be faulty and my need to be replaced. Otherwise it could be due to a power supply problem, such as a faulty regulator to the supply of the motor. A check on the voltage to the motor will determine this. Assuming you know what the correct voltage should be! Of course with luck it will be higher than the motor is supposed to run at.

It plays too fast. I suppose its the belt.

the belt will not adjust the speed unless it is slipping, therefore will slow down not speed up.
there should be a speed playing dial. for lp or 45's.
or have you had it repaired. if someone replaced the pullies on the drive or driven end this could have change the ratio and speed.

Suitcase Turntable stopped turning

Check the drive band- it may have come off the pulley. But if it is a new purchase then perhaps it should go back to the vendor
