SOURCE: how to place the belt on the turntable.......

Suggestion:

 

Pull rubber matt off TT. Use a small screw driver to pop off the small black "C" clip at base of steel record post. UNderneath plastic disc you will see the belt, and it loops on the metal post and over to the plastic barrel shaft to its right. Try this:

 

  1. Using Non-gelatin based nail polish remover OR acetone (gotten from any hardware store), and a few Q-Tips, rub the belt inside and out along its entire length until you feel the tacky rubber feeling come back to the belt. You may also see the shiny surface come off the belt as you clean it. The shiney look is from belt slippage and its like a glazing. Also, if you notice any of this black glazing on the two belt posts, clkean them off as well.
  2. If belt broken, replace with new by looping it back around the two posts under plastic TT platter.

If its truely a belt issue these two should solve it.

SOURCE: Daewoo DVRS05 Recorded DVD won't play in OTHER DVD players

my suggestion from reading other forums is that these players sometimes have problems finalizing the disc.. you could try making a copy of the disc in a computer to see if this fixes the promlem or maybe media these use dvd+r and has a lot of compatibility issues with dvd players.

SOURCE: recordes but dont play back

before you can watch a recorded DVD on another DVD player you must finalize the disc. to finalize the disc put the recorded disc into the DVD recorder, when the DVD loads it will show the titles that are recorded on the DVD on the screen
push the stop button it is the button with the square on it. the screen will go blank or it may let you watch whatever tv channel you are on if you have your tv ran through the recorder, push the setup buton a new screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight disc edit, press ok another screen will come up, with the arrow down button scroll down and highlight "finalize", press "ok" it is the button in the middle of the arrow keys
scroll up and highlight "yes" press "ok" the recorder will finalize the disc and it can be watched on any DVD player, just remember when you finalize a disc you cannot add anything else to the disc.

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.

SOURCE: recorded a DVD on computer but will not play on DVD player

dvd players play only certain kinds of discs and formats. Older ones played -R's, most newer ones play everything. You have to look in manual, or on box before you buy player. If it won't play -R,+R, -RW,and +RW's I pass it by. Find out if your player is limited to certain discs. Some will play VCD and some will not. Some will play DIVX and some will not etc. Stick to the discs and formats your particular player is compatible with.

How do I fix the speed of my Jensen JTA-460 turntable? I've tried numerous records that previously worked perfectly, but now the speed is too slow regardless of what album I try.


Could be the belt for the pulleys is stretched a little, or there is something making it slip, or the potentiometers were set incorrectly from the factory . It is normal to have one for each speed. It is unknown if you can access these from the bottom of the unit. Slippage is less likely to be caused by something oily, since it would alternate the speed faster and slower and yours seems to have worked then reached a constant slower speed. Do your 45's and 78's play ok? (yeah I know, does anyone have a lot of 78's on hand)
Your model does not have an outside pitch control to fine tune the speed faster or slower. Another Jensen model JTA-230 does. Entry level turntables such as yours are not speed accurate reliable. After reading reviews on your turntable, it's possible that the belt is the problem. If the slow speed problem had happened from the start, it would be safe to say that the speed wasn't calibrated correctly and you could have returned it and perhaps had better luck with another one but because it worked fine at the start and then now plays slower, it's either the belt or the potentiometer for the 33rpm speed has somehow changed.

How can I fix the speed myself on a Steepletone ST918 record player ? 33rpm plays LP's at 45rpm !!!!


I am not familiar with this brand, but many turn tables adjust the speed using a rubber wheel and a turntable motor with different shaft sizes. The shaft is ground smaller in steps the further from the motor. As the rubber wheel is moved up the shaft, the slower the turn table spins. Most times you can lift the turntable up (may have a clip to hold it in place) and look to see if the wheel moves up and down on the shaft as you shift speeds.

My Jensen JTA 450 is playing LPs too slow even though 33RPM is already set. The songs are slower than usual. Please help me.


The record that you are trying to play maybe a 45rpm recording. Some 45's were released in album size recordings.

your receiver has (or should have) input and output connections,, your turntable needs to be hooked to the receiver,, then with the output cables that feed your cassette player you need to go, in to out and out to in ( receiver output to the input of the tape player, and out of the tape player to the in on the receiver, while playing a record if you hit record on the tape player it will record the record, depending on the receiver it will show you the meter readings for either the in or out,, they vary

Your new cd player/recorder is a "component piece" as is your turntable,cassette player, reel to reel or CD player. Connect it as you would any other component piece of stereo equipment. Set up your recorder to "record" in real time(not high speed or synch record). Your tape recorder records anything that is playing through your reciever to your speakers. So, treat your "CD" recorder as you would a "CASSETTE TAPE" recorder. Play your vinyl record on your turntable and record to CD on your CD recorder ! Pay special attention to the dubbing speed, you will not use "synch or high speed !! Good Luck

Seal Turntable - lousy recording!


HELLO

These cheaply-made turntables only do ONE job and that is to archive your record collection. Not surprised by the fact the record plays great on your normal turntable.

The arms on these turntables have quite a heavy tracking weight to them and you cannot adjust it. My advice to you is if you want to archive vinyl there are plenty of quality HIFI turntables out there that will blow away your Seal turntable. Don't be tempted to put a small coin on the headshell as this will INCREASE the weight and probably damage your record.

A friend of mine has one these awful Seal tables and I think they are pretty bad sound quality, also they go under many different brand names.

AVOID!

Rca record player is playing slowed down or sped up


Hi there

this sounds like the belt that drives the turntable itself is slipping you can normally access it by removing the securing clip by the centre spindle and then lift the turntable up and you should be able to see the belt give the belt a good clean with isopropyl alcohol refit and hey presto (if you still get slippage order a replacement belt )
