The liely cause of the slow speed problem is the belt. Your turntable is belt driven, like components in your car's engine compartment. As the belt ages, it can begin to slip. Replacement of the belt will probably restore the speed once again. The PX-E860 turntable has been discontinued. There are parts, such as the belt, that are still available. How much longer these parts will be available for remains unknown. If you like the the turntable, you should consider purchasing several belts as the next time you need one, they may not be available or may cost much more.

You might also need a manual to direct you as to how to go about changing the belt. The manual is a free (after registering) download below:

SOURCE: My LPDock turntable is surging

There are two possible causes, depending on if the deck is belt driven or direct driven. Sorry I don't know which with yours.
If it's a belt drive then the belt has come lose and should be replaced. Or the motor or power supply to the motor is faulty. Make a note of how the belt fits before you replace it.
With a direct drive it's either the motor or power supply to it that's got the fault.

SOURCE: JVC Turntable model AL A1 BKX , need to know how to adjust speed

I have just fixed this problem on my Aiwa PX3800 with improvisation.
The platter was rotating too slowly, I didn't know how much too slow only that the records sounded wrong.
I imagined the belt, motor and platter as a bicycle gear and so simply increased the gear... I achieved this by winding a thin strip of a electrical insulation tape around the motor head to increase it's radius (like changing up to a larger front cog on a bicycle gear).
I could then time the rotations and remove a layer or two of the tape accordingly until I have achieved a perfect 45rpm. 33 is still way out but I only listen to 45s!
Be sure to trim excess tape from the motor head with a craft knife/scalpel or it'll stick to the platter.
Poor man fix up.

Turntable running slow


Most of the 'direct drive' turntables have a "pitch control" dial - you turn this dial until the black bars 'stop dancing' and hold still. There should be a little window with an orange neon light where you can see these black lines and adjust the speed. You may have to adjust it everytime you switch from 45's to 33's.

My JVC turntable has no plug, just a 10-13v lead


Probably as long it produces DC. However you will have to adjust the speed. As the unit was set for a certain voltage which wouldn't change. It will either go fast or slow depending on what the original voltage was. The speed adjuster will either be two presets one for each speed that could be located under the turntable base (covered by a sticker) or on the power board of the deck. Or they might be on the motor itself.

How do I adjust the speed of a Sony LX250H turntable? The answer is not in my manual.


Presumably you mean correcting the speed to play 45 and 33 correctly?
Some turntables have the speed control(s) as a preset(s) built into the base on the underside of the unit. Often covered with a sticker. You simply remove the sticker and stick a small screwdriver in the thing and turn it.
Others have the preset inside on a circuit board, got to by removing the bottom of the turntable. Others have it built into the motor itself.
You should replace the belt first if the speed is slow on both 45 and 33, before adjusting the motor speed.

Slow turntable


I'm not certain if you know this already, but the light that shines on the left side causes a strobe effect on the platter. One of series of 4 patterns will seem not to move when the turntable is at the right speed. To adjust this you need a record playing and then move the slider on the right till the pattern doesn't move. Which one not moving will depend on the speed selected and also the mains supply either 50 or 60HZ.
You will get some variation in the movement, but you shouldn't notice the difference in the speed. If this is set up right and you still think it's slow, then you might have to look either right under the turntable or inside it. There might be on the underside one or two holes that might be covered up. They might even be labelled 45 and 33. If you find them you will need a small screwdriver and place it inside. This will turn a small speed pre-set. You will have to adjust this till you think it's right, with slight movements, testing with a record.
If they are not present on the underside you will have to take off the bottom and look inside for a pre-set. Normally it will look like a 3 leg device with a screwdriver slot in the middle of it. Sometimes marked on the board "VR" with a number. Alternatively it will be on the other end of the motor. If you have trouble locating it follow the motor leads to the main board.
Some turntables have two speed pre-sets others only one.

My records that are 33 and 1/3 don't play at that speed on my turntable. they sound more like a 30 speed, what do I do


Hello Rosie,

Some turntables have a pitch adjustment feature which allows you to speed up or slow down your records. The adjustment controller is usually a slider or a wheel somewhere on the turntable and is usually labelled "Pitch" "Adjust / Adj" or "Pitch Adj".

Please check for this feature on your turntable then get back to me if you are unable to find it. Please include the brand and model number of your turntable.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

I have just bought a pre-owned Technics SL BD-22 turntable and the speed is variable - when I adjust the pitch adjustment wheel it seems to get worse. On listening to familiar music it seems to be running...


Have a look at the bottom of the turntable. This type of turntable often have speed adjusters. They might be covered by a sticky label or something. If you can't see that go inside by removing the bottom and look inside for them. There should be two, one for each speed.

My TEAC P688 is stuck in chipmunk mode for a large record - how do I slow it down?


Sometimes on the base of the turntable (under side) there are two presets one for the 45 speed and one for the 33. They might be hidden under a label or something. You might even have to go inside to find them. Anyway a small flat head screwdriver inserted in it should adjust the speed. You might have to work out which controls 33 speed. And of course if it is below you will have to figure out how to adjust it with a record playing. "Get out and get under!!!!" as they said about cars!
