When I click stop the patter turns backwards a couple times?

Mostly only on 45 (i guess since its faster) but when the patter is on and turning then click stop its goes revers while slowing down? Is this a simple part fix?

Technics SL-220 not turning (although it seems to be trying!)

I'd suggest to unplug it from power for 5 minutes push a couple of times on power button (while unplugged) then plug it back.

When i turn my 1210s on both 33/45 switces come on and platter spins too fast

Couple of options , but first cleanen the pithfader and variable resistor pitch vr3 i thought, it's an open one , he needs allways to be replaced, even technics says so and first clean the board, inside and on youtube and this side there enough movies and text how to do it, and check the pitchfader cables very good.

Stanton ST 150 motor will not turn on but all lights on deck flash?

If you have misc LEDs that are flashing without due cause and a motor, I'm betting a Direct Drive motor, that won't spin, I would same you have a damaged microprocessor(computer) within your table that's bad. For more information or further questions, please visit my website at Thank you.

My arm won't lower onto record, the arm lowewring mechinism won't lower

After my THIRD Ion turntable had the arm-lowering problem...

I rotated the platter counterclockwise about 12 times and it worked...for now. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope it wasn't a fluke.

I have an old Pioneer stereo auto turntable PL-5.It is rarely used and worked fine until my grandson started to turn the turntable by hand and I think backwards.Now it speeds up and races.Can this be fixed...

if the speed is constantly fast the drive belt may have ridden up on the top part of the motor pulley.inspect and refit.if the speed varies check operation of 33/45 switch.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed

1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.


2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.

Won't stop

This is a common issue with the drive in these units. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix. You will need to take it to a qualified service center for repair.
