It is possible that the problem is caused by a dirty/dusty pitch slider control. To clean it get a can of spray switch cleaner like Servisol (which is an excellent product) and I have been using that for 20 years now.
Using the long applicator pipe, spray that into the slide control and work it in. Hopefully this will cure your problem. If not then it could be a fault linked to the speed control circuit.

How to fix flutter & wow on a Gemini 500 XLii direct drive turntable

Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.

I acquired two Stanton str8-60 turntables in great shape, but they came with no dust covers. Any ideas how to find replacements?

Stanton, to the best of my knowledge, only makes cartridges. They may have marketed a turntable with their name on it, but they never made it. It's probably a Technics or similar. For more information, please visit my website at and provide some detailed pictures. I may be able to recognize the actual brand. Thank you.

Stanton str8 60

The Stanton STR8-60 is a direct drive record deck, so this shouldn't happen unless the platter was damaged but after a little research I found that the Stanton's can get a faulty chip which is meant to regulate the speed and therefore can make it spin erratically.

Speed is too slow. Does the belt stretch over time and affect the speed? What else could be the problem

Yes belts do stretch over time, often you will get wow and flutter too with it. Replacing the belt could solve it. If it's old anyway it could do with replacing. Please make a note of how it fits before removing it. Belts are measured in MM (diameter), but with TT belts you need to measure the width.

Sony hmk-v82 turn table speed. The speed changes slightly all the time, tone in music goes up and down accordingly. What is the solution?

This is known as wow and flutter. It's generally caused by the belt being lose on a belt drive turntable or the motor on a direct drive one. The motor can cause it too on a belt turntable!

Pitch is not working correctly

a) "dirty" main power switch, comes from sparking when power switch has been used a lot (happens also with some CD/DVD players - makes them loose some power - consequently, focus and/or spindle will not work properly). Try cleaning it up or replacing it (bypassing it will tell you if the switch is really the problem).

b) bad contact on the speed control slider (try moving it while slightly pressing it downwards, see if there is any change, if there is, have it cleaned up or replaced)

c) a problem with electronic speed control, possibly a loose solder connection or a bad capacitor somewhere in the speed control circuitry. If the circuit has fuses in it check if they are all ok. I once had a problem with a turntable that had a fuse "partially" blown (people were using the turntable a lot for "scratching" which overheated the fuse but hadn't blown it out, yet it changed in resistance from zero ohms to a few hundred ohms - the turntable began to **** and the speed was changing).

d) none of the above, it could be something else that i can't think of right now

hope ya get it workin'
