Onkyo 1020 direct drive will not turn at proper speed

My vintage Onkyo 1020F turntable has trouble in maintaining the correct LP speed. During various times it slows down no matter what LP I am playing. I have tried adjusting the play speed dials but it never brings it up to the speed in which the strobe markings appear to be standing still.

How do I use the belt drive control +/-10%?

The adjustment you refer to is a speed adjustment. It has a range of about plus or minus ten percent so that you can make minor corrections in platter speed for pitch matching.

The platter keeps spinning backwards any advise ?

Its internal motor control circuit control logic has the trouble. The control IC alongwith the retulator transistor should be replaced. OK.

My subwoofer is not getting power to it properly. It keeps cutting out. Any suggestions??

The subwoofer was recalled, check the Onkyo website for information. It was a no hassle repair--they will ship you the box and mailing labels. Mine was working properly, but I sent it in for the recall anyway and had it back within 2 weeks.
That being said, when the subwoofer doesn't think it needs to work, like during prolonged dialog without music, it will shut itself off.

I have problem with tonearm on my vestax pdx 2000 turntable , no connection with needle , but when I make contacts of the needle wet it sometimes help a bit , but I should do it always to make it work. ...

I'd be checking the weight and height settings of the tonearm. Heres a link to the manual for the deck. There's instructions in there about how to setup up the tonearm properly. Don't be afraid to experiment with it. Just remember, too much weight will wear out your vinyl really quickly. Not enough weight will sound like **** and skip easily. Have fun!

Connected home theatre system but no sound sub woofer

If the system uses a remote control, you may need to adjust the subwoofer out signal setting or turn on the sub in a menu, and on many systems, you can only access those settings via a remote control (you should check the onkyo user manual on how to do it).

Now, this is just one suggestion, it may work, but then again, it may not.

These could also be connection problems or some internal trouble in the onkyo sub signal output section or in the subwoofer input section, but hopefuly, it's just a "turn on" or "signal level" setting in a menu.

Good luck

Onkyo HT-SR800 won't turn on

If you call Onkyo directly, 201-785-2600, there is a procedure to "reset" the system, something like holding the power button on and holding down another button for a few seconds. Can't remember which, so I can't be sure, but try giving them a call.

you should check the fuse on the other turntable to get the correct size, if it persists in blowing you should realy send it back because if you were to use a larger fuse you run the risk of blowing something in the deck, i know its not a great help but its all i can offer

Turntable spinning backwards

If it is a direct drive TT then it uses some electronic circuitry to control speed and it sounds like that circuit is having a problem. Possibly the actual driver IC for the TT motor has gone bad. Good luck.
