Re: CDX motor problem

Sounds to me like the ac to dc rectifier/transformer is shot. AC has a positive and negative pulse. Your turnable motor takes DC current. Their is a device that modifies your ac to dc. if the motor takes off on the positive pulse it goes forward. When you disrupt this it starts to act on the negative pulse. it may not be motor but some electronics.

Hope that helps.

Turntable spinning to fast

Clearly an electrical fault. Could be something to do with the power supply or the speed control circuit, or even the motor itself.
For the manual visit the Gemini website.

Hitachi Ht-354 direct drive. Why can't speed be adjusted?

Direct Drive turntable's have electronically controlled motors with complicated systems to keep them at the right speed.
My guess is that there could be a power supply issue that feeds one of the motors that is sending a much higher voltage to it. But that's just a guess. You might want to look around for the service manual for it to see how the motor is controlled.

I have a Sherwood PD - 913 R and the pitch seems to be spinning out of sync which makes the RPM"s not right for 33 or 45 speeds, any help on what could be the cause is appreciated. There is a pitch...

The turntable motor might be the problem, if the grease is old it becomes hard causing the turntable to run slow, by your description we can rule that out since you indicate it runs to fast. therefore it is the voltage that powers the motor with a regulator "keeps voltage constant" or the motor itself will be the problem. The pitch control allows a small change in speed when required.

My Crosley turntable is spinning too fast at 33RPM

Mismatch speeds on older turntables is normally due to either 1) a kink in the speed switch mechanism or 2) a hardening and slipping of the rubber drive wheel.
A very small motor with a chamfered shaft drives the rubber drive wheel, and the wheel is moved by the speed control up and down the drive shaft to produce various rpm speeds.
In your case, it's likely turning at 45rpm because it isn't settling onto the 33rpm part of the shaft.
Piddle with the speed control, then count the speed (number of turns in a minute) You'll figure it out!

My platter spins fast out of control

At a guess from the minimal informaton given, i would say the drive motor has gone. I would suggest taking it to your nearest dealer or service center for a full overhaul, appart from that, visit e-bay.

Vestax PMC 05 PRO MIXER master output is not working

More than likely the output PCB might be faulty, or the signal amp might be damaged. In either case, not an easy fix. As for service in the UK, try HARD TO FIND RECORDS - they have a pretty good service dept.

Not reading any cd's

they are known for this! Does it take cd in for a few seconds and spit out? Does it take cd in and just tick? (if you put ur ear up to the drive you'll actually hear it try to spin but just give a lil tick noise). Numark does sell a replacement cd drive which isnt exactly a 100% fix but worth a shot seeing how the unit cost quite a bit. If you do end up replacing the cd drive and does not fix your problem there is also an internal cable. Once you pull out the drive, look inside to the left you'll see a white flex cable which may need to be re-seated. Let me know how you make out!

Platter spins very slowly

Well hope fully its something small. check your pitch control first make sure its not set at a slow speed. then check your start stop knobs at the bottom of the table. roll them one way then start it see if that works, then the other way... if its not that then its possibly its a malfunction ,, Numark with there new awesome products but sometimes faulty that turntable wigs out goin slow then normal then slow ect... If its less then a year send it in it is coverd by warrantee
