    Yeah, I'm sure not going to go poking around with a screwdriver.I'd definitely add more problems. 1 second is really not recognizable by my ear, just annoying for the timing issues I mentioned. Just for information sake, what "variable pot" would I be looking for?
    thanks for your help

1 sec is not all that fast.... with that said you can see if there is a control that you stick a small screw driver under the table or you may have to open it but there should be a variable pot to change speed and most likely if you adjust it it's going to be off more than just 1 sec

Why can I not record to a CD from the "aux in" port?

Your question has not provided enough information. Are you trying to record vinyl onto a cd?
You cannot record onto a normal cd player. You need a cd burner(/recorder).
Vinyl turntables have a quieter output signal too so unless you have a device that has a phono (vinyl) input you will not be able to record your vinyl. If you have a laptop then the easiest way to record vinyl onto cd is to buy a soundcard that has phono input. You can then use free software (programme) like audacity to record your vinyl and covert it to a format (wav aiff or mp3) to burn to cd using iTunes or Windows Media player.

Crosley CR249 warped table

Sounds like you need a new platter. Has the platter worked OK before or has it always been like this?
I suspect you might have to contact Crosley to see who supplies parts.

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.

If you can turn the platter easily by hand, then so should the motor. You can also disconect the power leads to the motor and hook up a PP9 9 volt battery to it. If it\'s slow and easily stopped from rotating then there\'s nothing wrong with the power to the motor and the motor is bad!

ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable, tone arm won't drop

I've got the same problem. When you put therecord on, spin it from the centre, and it will release the mechanism inside,this is what I do, and it works fine. I think the problem is that there are twoplates under the turntable, and there was grease between them, after a few goesthe grease disappears, causing the problem.

I own a Thorens td-160 and after decades of good use the 33 speed is not tracking too fast. Is there anyway to adjust the speed?

A small potentiometer on the circuit board. Be gentle and the proper size jewelers screwdriver.

My thorens TD280mkIV won't spin. I've checked the power supply, 16V is getting to motor. When I hit start switch, motor twitches but doesn't spin. I've oiled motor, but turning spindle still feels...

It seems a bit high 16 volts, most motors run at 12 or lower. Sometimes it says the voltage on it! There's one certain way to check if a dc motor is working. Disconect it an stick a 9 volt battery on it. If it doesn't turn with that it's dead!

CD Mode does not react in the same manner as as Vinyl mode when you try to back spin. At the very least, you will only be able to go back a few bars. It's mainly used to set the Cue properly.

If you want it to back spin, you'll have to use the Vinyl mode.
