Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Realistic LAB-500 direct drive turntable from Radio Shack purchased in 1979 that now when I play vinyl at 33 1/3, at random, the platter jumps to 45 rpm. I am looking to find out who can repair it, has parts etc or how I can go about doing this myself if possible - thank you!
Go to this site?
possibly your capstan needs cleaning? remove the platter and locate the capstan which is usually made of brass? if it is dirty, ie; black use cotton balls and neat alcohol (spirits ) to clean it. also, consider changing the belt as it may have stretched?
