Question about Teac SL-A100 Turntable
I have a TEAC
and it seems to play to fast. Is there a way to slow the speed down besides the 3 postion switch '33-45-78'?
SOURCE: only spinning at 1 speed
This is a high dollar turntable. If you want, take the screws out, open it up and check that the direct drive speed gear is in place. Other than that I would take it to a repair shop. There's one guy on ebay selling a new one for $500.00 http://cgi.ebay.com/Technics-SL-1200MK2-Manual-Direct-Drive-Turntable-New_W0QQitemZ320132536688QQihZ011QQcategoryZ64448QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

SOURCE: Sony PS-LX250H speed problem
I have a different Sony model (PS-LX-150H) that had a similar problem. I hadn't used it in awhile, and then when I did, I noticed the speed problem.
IF your PS-LX250 is like my PS-LX150, there are small speed adjustment screws accessible from the bottom of the unit. On mine, the two adjustment screws were labeled - one for 33rpm, the other for 45 rpm. Basically I just fiddled a bit with them using a very small precision screw driver until I could verify that I had reached 33 rpm (I used a stopwatch and literally counted the number of rotations/minute after making adjustments.)
Now it sounds right!

There a few things which can cause this problem. First the speed change switch may be faulty or contaminated by dirt/dust. If I were looking at this deck I would spray some Servisol switch cleaner into the switch (you may have to remove the base of the deck to do it).
There should also be two variable pots which are used to set each speed - spray those as well - it may be a "dead spot" on the pot itself. These are the most obvious causes but if the problem still persists check the belt. If that is OK, then you may have a fault in the speed control circuit.
ALL THE BEST WITH IT (:-)

SOURCE: teac turntable plays too fast
This sounds like a motor speed control problem. It could be either the motor itself or an electronic fault. So unless you know a bit about electronics and know how to use a soldering iron etc, then the answer to your question is no.

Had the same problem & checked around on the net. Several people tried replacing the belt, but it had no effect. Spoke w/ several repair shops around the country and they concur with what I'd read on the net - bad motors. 3 or 4 repair/supply shops told me getting a motor would be impossible. Since I only listen to 33-1/3 LP's, I messed around w/ it a little and found a solution. Take the turntable out of the unit & you will find a small circuit board attached to the bottom. On that board is a small square blue fixture w/ a white circular "dial" in the middle (has grooves to accept a small straight blade or a phillips screw driver). This controls the voltage to the motor, which in turn controls the motor RPM's. If you set the selector switch to 78, you can experiment /w turning that white circular "dial" to slow the motor down. It isn't very hard to get the speed set properly. The down side is that you will only be able to play 33-1/3 LP's, but they are probably the most common anyways. I assume you could do the same to set the speed for a 45, rather than a 33-1/3. Down side is that you will only be able to play 1 size LP on the 78 speed setting, but it's an easy adjustment that can keep an otherwise in-op turntable functioning. Good luck!
