Hi!
Make shure that is a 50Hz turntable. If you connect a 60 Hz turntable in a 50 Hz system, the result is aprox 28 RPM in the 33 RPM position/

hi,
somewhere on that player is a switch for 78-45-33 rpm the speed switch look up around by the tone arm above by where the record goes, it may not be on the front. switch it to the correct record you have 45's are small. 78's are medium and 33rpms are the big records..

SOURCE: AFTER adjusting the speed setting

If it says your speed setting in on 33, than you have a problem with the speed control inside of the turntable, there is not much you can do in that area. 33 is the slowest speed too, so it seems like it is stuck on 45 or 78. Call Teac if you are still under warranty.

The turntable is going too fast because the singing coming out sounds like the chipmunk's any trouble shooting tips??


You are likely playing a 33 rpm record while the turntable is set to 45 rpm. You need to find the speed control and adjust it to the media you are playing.

Plays too fast


Either the speed switch is history or there is a belt problem. Get rid of it.

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

Tracks playing at the wrong pitch and speed


This sounds like a difference in the sampling frequency.  Music recorded at 48Khz must be played back at that frequency or there will be a significant difference in speed and pitch during playback at 44.1Khz. I first noticed this when it occurred to me when recording on digital audio tape.  Ipods and minidiscs and mp3 recorders can record at high sampling frequencies like 48K.  Cds are all recorded at the standard 44.1K sampling frequency.   Check the source of your recordings and it should follow a pattern that leads to your current results.       I do not have enough information  on how your music was transferred to tell you more at this time, but I am very confident that differences in sampling frequencies of your source material are causing the pitch differences you are hearing.   Without knowing exactly the sampling frequencies of each piece of equipment you used to record these songs it will be next to impossible to give you a very specific solution, so I hope the info. I have shared helps you to figure it out.  Best regards and good luck!   Michael Mittelsdorf
