How close are the other speeds? Chances are - especiall if you a musician - that the 33 1/3 speed is "generally" close, but not guaranteed that accurate. How far off do you think it is?

Depending on what you tell me, I'm not sure that PRACTICALLY there's a remedy. Let me know.

33 Records are playing a bit too fast on my Wockoder Record Player... Is there any way to fix this?


Lots of quality turntables have a speed checker and a limited amount of speed adjustment.

Many ordinary record decks use a synchronous motor, the speed of which is regulated by the Hz of the mains supply and with mostly fixed gear ratios it is impossible for them to run faster - slower is the usual problem.

I expect there will be types driven by a dc motor and regulated by a switch mode power supply but I know nothing about them.

I suggest you begin by learning something about your turntable.

Crosley troubadour stops before record is done


Check to see if there is a switch setting for 7", 10", and 12" records. Sounds like a switch setting to me. Does it always pick up at the same physical location on any record? If so, that is the likely cause. Personally, if you have an extensive collection of vinyl, a Crosley is definitely NOT the best turntable to be playing them on. You'd get way better fidelity and save your records from physical groove damage by investing in a better turntable. If you want the collection to stay in good shape and retain their value, ditch the Crosley ASAP.

Brand new crosley keepsake that spins too fast even at its slowest speed setting (33 1.2). Can I fix or should I send it back for repair?


If it is belt driven it could be that the belt is not moving to the smaller diameter pulley for the slower speed. But the unit is new so I would just return it for an exchange at the store it was purchased from. It is new - the heck with a repair - just get another one!

Crosley CR40 playing 33 1/2 too fast? What can I do to slow it just a little bit?


I would get a vintage turntable and not a new one inexpensive one. The new record players do not last.

My PTCDS1U just started playing too slowly despite my attempts to adjust the speed


Is this a belt drive turntable? If so, replace the belt - its slipping.

My Teac sl-a100 record player sounds like a chipmunk


hi,
somewhere on that player is a switch for 78-45-33 rpm the speed switch look up around by the tone arm above by where the record goes, it may not be on the front. switch it to the correct record you have 45's are small. 78's are medium and 33rpms are the big records..

I have a Crosley Keepsake turntable which plays 33 1/3 rpm records perfectly. However, when I try to play 45rpm records the sound is very distorted, especially the vocals which sound as though they are...


The only thing (I think) that would cause a 45 to play badly and the 33 not, is either the cartridge or stylus, most likely the stylus. It's either worn or damaged, so it fits badly in the larger grooves of 45's then the smaller ones of 33!
The signal coming from the cartridge is the same on 45 as it would be from 33.

My Crosley turntable is spinning too fast at 33RPM


Mismatch speeds on older turntables is normally due to either 1) a kink in the speed switch mechanism or 2) a hardening and slipping of the rubber drive wheel.
A very small motor with a chamfered shaft drives the rubber drive wheel, and the wheel is moved by the speed control up and down the drive shaft to produce various rpm speeds.
In your case, it's likely turning at 45rpm because it isn't settling onto the 33rpm part of the shaft.
Piddle with the speed control, then count the speed (number of turns in a minute) You'll figure it out!
