Question about Califone International Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Califone 1435k This record player from the 70s runs great and came highly recommended but the 33 records we're trying to play are sounding much too fast. Any ideas on how to fix this?

We've opened it and cleaned all the old lubrication, and re-lubricated but that wasn't the fix...

This is an idler wheel drive turntable that uses a small rubber wheel, that when engaged pushes on the motor spindle and also on the rim on the underside of the platter. The spindle on the motor is stepped so as you shift speed the idler wheel moves up or down the spindle and that changes the speed of the platter. It could be the the shifting mechanism is dodgy You can try to loosen it by gently shifting the speed from 78 to 16 and back again. But the idler wheel rubber might be in trouble too.

My Teac sl-a100 record player sounds like a chipmunk


hi,
somewhere on that player is a switch for 78-45-33 rpm the speed switch look up around by the tone arm above by where the record goes, it may not be on the front. switch it to the correct record you have 45's are small. 78's are medium and 33rpms are the big records..

Adjust pitch on a Califone turntable.


This one is actually fastened from underneath (inside). You need to open the player up and you will see the usual C shaped fastener on a cleat near the motor assembly. Most old direct drive record players have a C pin around the spindle that you can unfasten (pry with a twist) with a screwdriver. Irealize you figured this out yourself, but I'll take the guess work out for someone else... yeah..l you gotta take it apart!

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually


Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed


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.

or

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.

Just bought it but threw the box away because it worked right the first time!


Caution - some manufacturers recommend a specific type of CD for recording, otherwise the unit may not record properly. Was the CD a CD-R? CD-RW? 74 minute? 80 minute? See if there are any specific requirements first.
