Question about Crosley CR248 Turntable

Open Question

Turntable Speed My brand new unit was turning at 37 rpm out of the box, when set at 33 1/3. I solved that problem by finding the H/L adjustment on the turntable motor, but now the turntable turns at variable speed, making it irritating at best to listen to music, not to mention record to a CD. Any ideas, or should I just return it?

    I have the same problem with the CR245-PA director and I am getting no response from crosley's customer service.

    I just got it myself, and was disturbed by the Chipmunk like speed of the turntable. The recording quality and features (track splitting, etc.) are just fine, but every artist sounds like they have stepped back into adolescence. . .


    Something that does NOT work is the phillips screw that levels the turntable - I thought (naive) that perhaps if it were uncomfortably tight, it might inhibit the speed, but no.

    I have a new Crosley CR245 and the turntable speed is too slow, causing any CDs made from it to be useless. The sound is shaky, slow, and inconsistent. It's a shame such a good-looking product is so disappointing. I also cannot level the turntable by any means I can find. Any help with this, including info on where to send it for repair, would be appreciated. I live in SoCal.

SOURCE: Cannot adjust speed on a vintage Technics SL-B30 Turntable

More than likely it is a faulty drive IC (Integrated Circuit). If so, your out of luck, because most parts for this unit are discontinued, with the exception of the belt.

There really isn't much else you can do. Will probably cost too much to repair, if you can find someone who can repair it.

Sorry couldn't be of much more help.

possibly your capstan needs cleaning? remove the platter and locate the capstan which is usually made of brass? if it is dirty, ie; black use cotton balls and neat alcohol (spirits ) to clean it. also, consider changing the belt as it may have stretched?

The speed switch results in same slower speed than 33 rpm when set to 33 or 45, and 78 is slower than 78 rpm, but faster than 45 rpm


Assuming it is a belt driven turntable I suspect the belt has slipped out of position. It might need adjusting or replacing. If you do need to replace it make a note of how it fits, even though it could be in the wrong position. It's a starting point for putting the new one in the right position.

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!

The turntable is going too fast because the singing coming out sounds like the chipmunk's any trouble shooting tips??


You are likely playing a 33 rpm record while the turntable is set to 45 rpm. You need to find the speed control and adjust it to the media you are playing.

Grundig 4400 / Audio Techinca T4P Turntable spins at 35 RPM instead of 33 RPM


I think you mean 45 rpm?
It sounds like you have got the belt in the wrong position. Try adjusting the position of the belt by experiment. Or you could look up the correct way to set up the belt.

Even though i am playing my record on normal speed, it plays to fast


if your turntable doesn't have a pitch control (like the dj's turntables) if you open it you should find on the board close from the 45-33 rpm switch a variable resistor ( a small electronic part with a sort of disc on top with in the middle of it a place for a flat screw driver and marking like + and - those resistor are made to control the speed and can go bad or just need to be adjusted . First try to adjust it turning the dial really carefully with a small screw driver if nothing happened it could need to be replace.

What's the correct way to use the strobe light to set turntable speed?


The turntable may have a pattern on the edge of the turntable. If not you need a turntable strobe disk that you place on the turntable like a record. The pattern on the disk or on the edge of the turntable will be marked for 50 Hz or 60 Hz frequency.
The strobe marks on the disk or on the turntable are for 33 RPM and 45 RPM and for both 50 & 60 Hz mains frequency.
To adjust the turntable for the correct RPM, turn on the strobe light and the turntable set it to 33 RPM and shine the strobe light on these marks and adjust the speed setting until the 33 RPM marks appear steady and not moving. You may want to check it for 45 RPM as well.
Make sure you use the correct mains frequency marks ie. the 50 or 60 Hz that your electricity system uses.

Playback on the turntable is sped up


The first step to resolving this issue is to select the appropriate RPM speed for the record that you have in hand. If it is not a simple 33 1/3 RPM record set on 45 RPM, then it would seem that the phono motor speed could require adjustment. Your phonograph is a belt-driven PX-E860 K with a DC servo motor.

Some people mistake the the 7"/LP record size LEVER for the rotational speed BUTTON (33 RPM when raised; 45 RPM when down).

In the case of needing to actually callibrate the rotational speed, underneath the unit there is a hole labeled "33" & a hole labeled "45." Using a very fine precision screwdriver, you can callibrate the speed of each. Insert the screwdriver into the repsective hole past the rubber & slightly turn the screw (rotational speed increases as you turn the screw clockwise).

Thomas Pacconi Model TPC-MSE-800 turntable runs slugglish. 78 runs fine but 45 or 33 runs slow. I removed belt cleaned it and platter. I put a drop on oil still same problem. Do I need a new belt? This is...


Pjam,
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!

My turntable speed is too slow. I have the optimus lab 1000 and there are speed adjustments on the bottom side of the unit but turning these either for 45 or 33 rpm did not change results. I have already...


Look under the platter or on the bottom of the turntable. There should be two adjustment holes for 45 and 33. You will need a small screwdriver for adjusting these. If this does not work clean the control pots with spray cleaner.

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!
