Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I can't get the strobe light to stay steady when playing a record. I got the speed close once but then the speed slowed during play. Also only got sound on the left channel of a stereo 45. Please help as I'm trying to record all my old vinyl to my PC. The guts of the unit is pretty clean and I didn't see any loose connections of any sort.
Not sure if this link is any good to you. Radio Shack Realistic LAB 430 manual Google Search .

SOURCE: turntable plays too fast
I have seen this problem before. Lift the turntable off. It might be held down with a clip around the center pole. Under it you will see a wheel that contacts the turn table and the center shaft of the motor. The motor shaft has 3 0r 4 elevations with different diameters. When you change the speed the wheel will move up and down to different diameter levels on the motor shaft. It must be free to move. It might need some oil at the moving parts as I suspect it is not moving properly.
Hope this helps.

Most likely the grease in the whole system has started to stiffen or the motor is failing. This can be fixed. Try oiling the motor first. If that fails, I'd look at the motor driver IC as the most likely failing part.

This could be many things like the following>
If its a direct drive turntable the motor could be "blown",
or motor electonic speed controller burnt out.
If its a belt drive turntable then the belt could be broken
or stretched and is slipping, or the belt can have dropped of a drive pullety.
Also there are speed control mechanisms to adjust the final speed of the
turntable to the recorded speed of the record like 331/3rpm, 45rpm 75rpm
These speed reducing mechanisims can slip and cause the turntable not to turn..
There are also other mechanical bits that slide and push against each other,
and these can get sticky and the friction increases so much that the power
from the motor drive causes the belts to slip, so you need to identify if a
friction problem exists as well..
If you are carefull you can look your self and find out which one of the above it is.
Be warned there are lethal voltages inside the turntable which can kill you....
so please dont have the power on when making any inspection or adjustments.
Cheers From YUBEUT..
