Speed of Pioneer PL-Z81 Turntable

The speed switch on my 20 year old Pioneer Turntable PL-Z81 seems to be broken as it will only play at 45rpm. Is this a simple part to change given that I can still source one from somewhere please?

Hi...
If the new receiver doesnt have a specific input in back labeled "phono" , You WILL need a preamp for the phono. Then plug the preamp into the AUX or other available input

Lift off the platter mat, then lift off the platter from the spindle - gently.
Underneath the platter is a sub-platter around which you place the belt - it should be held there by the stretch of the belt while you turn the platter back up the right way and place it back on the spindle.
Turning the platter by hand, you should see a small pulley come into view through one of the holes in the platter. You then stretch the belt slightly so that it slides over the pulley. Take care not to twist the belt while doing this.

SOURCE: I have a Pioneer PL-A35 turntable. I had the belt

the may be a 'dead spot' on the motor, try to jump start it by spinning it with your fingers several times. it's a longshot but it might work

Turntable doesnt start till platter is in 45rpm position


If you look underneath the deck you will find that the arm is linked by leavers to switches that trigger the motor. Clearly the one that for LP's has become bent out of shape and no longer pushes on the switch. Or the switch itself has broken or become bent, making no contact with the motor.

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.

Pioneer PL-12D TURNTABLE. Plays too fast.


Judging by your message I guess it's a secondhand machine, you have either been given or purchased. I suspect that someone might have played around with the speed preset to the motor. Take a look around the deck see if you can find it, sometimes there are two, one for each speed. They should correct it, unless something has gone.

Turntable 45rpm speed has stopped working


Check that the lever is actually making the contact with the 45 rpm switch position and completing the circuit as it would seem everything else works. The only other thing it could be is a break on the pcb, but that is unlikely.

i think it is a belt driver table. you can find a replacement belt maybe. but if it is servo controlled motor driven then adjustments to sped setting has to be done.
