The turntable slows down every two or three revolutions as shown by the strobe light and the sound of the LP

If this is a belt driven model it could be the sign that the belt is worn, causing it to slip.

I just recently bought a new turntable, and when it plays my LPs, the LPs sound somewhat slower than the original. Does the slowness have to do with the belt of the turntable? Is there anyway I can fi

If the 45's play OK then your belt might not be fitted in the right place. If they are both slow, then either the belt is slack or the drive is faulty.

I have a Systemdek I 920 which is around 20 years old. It is not played much now but tried recently and there is no power when I switch it on. I have checked the plug and that is not the problem. Any...

Have you checked the belt? The speed is changed by lifting the glass platter and adjusting the tension on the belt using one of two size wheels attached to the motor. The belt may have either slipped off, disappeared over the years or just worn causing it to slip too badly to start the platter. Try it with the platter off and the belt unattached and see if the drive wheel will start with no load.

Its playing the record to fast do i need to change the belt

Unlikely- it might be in the wrong position, but that could be caused by the belt being slack, in which case you would need to replace it. Check the belt is set up right and if it slips out again replace the belt. Otherwise look around inside for another cause. IE faulty power supply to the motor.

My numark TT500 turntable doesn't spin when i press play

Sounds to me like the belt has snapped or slipped off. Lift the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

VINYL PLAYER SLOWS WHEN I STACK A COUPLE OF LPS sounds funny play fine with just 1

The labels on the LP's stick up higher than the vinyl. These slip on each other when you stack LPs.
One LP sits directly on the turntable mat and has enough friction to turn.
The only solution I can think of is to put something 'tacky' on the labels but this might be detrimental to the label.

Record player turntable belt is slipping causing distorted sound

A new one might fix the problem, as they do tend to wear out, without breaking. Measure the diameter to get the size right, note also how it fits too.
