Question about JVC AL A158BK Turntable

1 Answer

The speed on my JVC L-A11 is too fast when set to 33. If I toggle in between 33 and 45 it slows down enough so the pitch and speed sound right. How do I fix this so I can keep it set to 33 rather than jiggle between 33 and 45 to find the right spot

HELLO

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 (:-)

Brand new crosley keepsake that spins too fast even at its slowest speed setting (33 1.2). Can I fix or should I send it back for repair?


If it is belt driven it could be that the belt is not moving to the smaller diameter pulley for the slower speed. But the unit is new so I would just return it for an exchange at the store it was purchased from. It is new - the heck with a repair - just get another one!

Adjust pitch not working on PS T1 Sony


Try looking underneath the turntable. There might be two speed presets one for 45 and one for 33. They could be covered up by stickers.

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.

Turntable spins to fast


The motors are a common problem with this
model! Replace it to correct but I suspect the
motor regulator ic which is not avalible is the
real problem!

Panasonic automatic turntable model sl-hm42


I'm having a similar issue - except my panasonic sl-hm42 platter is moving too slow on 33 1/3 settings (don't have any 45's to try). It's a DC model, so I would think there would be some kind of pitch control settings or screws somewhere on it but I can't seem to find them.
Does anyone know if it's possible to adjust the pitch on this model turntable? Thank you!

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!
