Stanton STR8.150 speed fluctuations

My son bought a pair of what looked like mint condition (but used) Stanton STR8.150 turntables a couple of months ago. He just got his mixer this week, and one of the turntables has a speed fluctuation issue. It seems to lock in on 33 and then it goes off-speed for a moment - then it returns to 33 and once again continues the cycle of goin off-speed for a moment. Is there anything I should check? I've seem some videos of folks repairing loose solder joints on SL-1200's and cleaning POTs, etc. I have not found any videos or write-ups regarding similar issues on the Stanton's. Any thoughts? thanks.

SOURCE: Cannot adjust speed on a vintage Technics SL-B30 Turntable

More than likely it is a faulty drive IC (Integrated Circuit). If so, your out of luck, because most parts for this unit are discontinued, with the exception of the belt.

There really isn't much else you can do. Will probably cost too much to repair, if you can find someone who can repair it.

Sorry couldn't be of much more help.

Try plugging it into a different power point. The problem is with the power supply fluctuating. You can eliminate that with a UPS, here is a link to wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply

Need a new belt


The best I can suggest is that you measure the diameter of the belt in mm and put that into google search with the words "turntable drive belt". Hopefully something should come up! I would suggest contacting Stanton, but I couldn't find the website for the company, so that might be a waste of time, but if you want to try have a go!

Have a look under the turntable to see if you can find a speed preset. You can adjust them with a screwdriver. They might be covered up with a sticker. Often there are two one for 33 and one for 45.

Stanton STR8-100 Turntable ground wire?


Hi,
There is no such ground points in the Stanton STR8-100. The main thing you have to check is the RCA cable used. You should a high quality RCA cable suitable for Phono connections. If you use a normal RCA cable then it will produce HUM because if its weak ground shield.

Try with a good quality RCA cable with Good ground shielding.

My stanton t50 turntable plays too fast even when the pitch fader is at the slowest speed


You need to calibrate your pitch control. This requires a small precision screwdriver (similar to something you would repair eye glasses with). If you look under the turntable where the pitch control is you will find 2 small holes, 1 marked 33 and 1 marked 45. Turn the turntable on and set the pitch control lever to zero pitch. While the turntable is spinning insert the screw driver into the pitch calibration hole under the turntable and twist the potentiometer back and forth until the turntable pitch is zero (I believe clockwise is faster, counterclockwise is slower as you look up from the bottom of the turntable). This is a fine tune adjustment and will not require much turning to adjust the speed (1 or 2 mm's) either way should start to bring you into zero pitch. The platter speed can be verified by the little dots on the rim of the platter. They should appear stationary in strobe light on the power switch when you are at zero pitch. When you are adjusting the speed you will observe the dots on the platter rim spinning clockwise and then counterclockwise as you adjust the fine tuning. Fine tune the speed until the dots appear stationary and you will be back to zero pitch. You have to adjust the turntable at both speeds 33 and 45 using the correct fine tuning hole under the turntable. My personal experience is it is easiest to do this with 2 people. 1 person to hold the turntable level and running, while the other adjusts the fine tuning. Hope this helps.

HELLO
There is nothing more annoying than buying something second-hand to find parts are missing. I've had a look on the net for you and you could try these sites - they might be able to help.
www.HTFR.com and www.djdeals.com.
I wish you luck finding a weight and hope this has gone some way to helping!
