A few days ago, I was listening to an album when all of a sudden it kicked into 45 mode for about half a minute before going back to 33.3 mode. Then yesterday it kicked into a 42-ish speed (because 45's played too slow without actually switching to 45, which made it work fine)...but now it's stuck in 45 mode regardless of what's selected. How did it get like this and what can I do to fix it? Also, somewhat unrelated but on the same unit, it sometimes stops itself a half-second after resting on the edge of the record...perhaps misaligned automatic gear mechanisms? (how would I reset them?)

As stated by the previous expert the fault is clearly a lowering of value of a capacitor or in some cases an IC or semiconductor. You can use a heater to SIMULATE the board in different section when the set to put ON and confirm the right place to where you can checck to replace suspected capacitors.-- in TCON or worse the LCD itself.

There are several things that could be causing this. Your compressor could be going bad. Your freon is low. Think of your refrigerator as a air conditioner. Pull it out and vacuum all the dust from your filters, make sure the water is draining properly and not clogged up. Is your unit still under warranty. How old is your unit. Try this. Unplug the unit for about 5-10 minutes, this will give it enough time for the compressor to cool down. Plug it back in and listen for the compressor to kick on. That's the big black round thing at the bottom in the back of your refrigerator. Listen to it and what the sound is, does it click when it turns on, does it shudder when it turns on. Let me know the sound. By unplugging the unit and doing this the compressor should kick on in 1-3 minutes after plugging it back in. If your unit is over 8 years old you might consider another one. Check out craigslist, as you can get some great deals. Let me know if I can help you further. JimmyC
1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.
2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.
There seems to be 2 issues with this unit. Usually when the platter speeds up very quickly, one of the IC (integrated circuits) are faulty and needs to be replaced. However, I've never seen the 33/45 lights come on in addition. So, perhaps the issue started with faulty 33/45 switches, and it then caused a short to one of the IC's.
This will have to be professionally serviced, as it is not an easy fix. There are various circuits on the main board which control the drive, so it's a matter of diagnosing which is the culprit. The 33/45 switches will also need to be tested/replaced.
Replace the battery ?
You can get one for US $7.99 from ebay, never bought but was looking some time ago.
You'll have to open the player to do the replacement, but that's easy. If uneasy with that you should get someone to do it for you.
