Sounds to me like your belt is streched. Under the felt of the turning section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

How to fix flutter & wow on a Gemini 500 XLii direct drive turntable


Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.

How do you set the speeds are not set right on the turntable? Copied a 33 1/3 record and it sounded like the chipmunks.


I'll assume the record played like Chipmunks as well? I believe this is a belt driven turntable. The belt is probably riding over the top ridge of the pulley. Get to the area where the belt is accessible. I think you'll see I'm right. If so, just push the belt back down, and revolve the platter, by hand, 3 or 4 times. Once that's done, check the belt to make sure it is still riding in the middle of the pulley.

Recently purchased used Panasonic SL-HM42 turntable. Works, but turning a little slow on 33rpm (30-31rpms) says DC Servo System on the front. Don't see any set screws on bottom. would like to get platter...


How to tweak the playback speed on Panasonic SL-HM42 turntables
recently-purchased-used-panasonic-sl-jxgmd5u3zcskalhaccgps5fw-3-20.png

You will need:

  1. 1x small Philips screw driver
  2. 1x small flat-head screw driver
  3. An ear for correct pitch and a little bit of DIY skill!

Step 1 - Remove the wooden base plate

After ensuring that you've removed the the rubber turntable slip mat and securely docked the turntable arm, carefully flip the turntable over onto its lid to expose the wooden base plate, as per below.

Using the small Philips-head screw driver, remove the screws holding the wooden base plate in place, then gently lift the base plate off the turntable.

Step 2 - Expose the pitch adjustment screws

Once the wooden base plate is removed, you will see the speed-controller circuit board on the right-hand side.

To expose the the two speed/pitch-control screws, firstly remove the screw holding the speed-controller circuit board in place, then gently lift the circuit board up on the free side.

Step 3 - Correct the turntable playback speed and pitch

The easiest way I found to correct the playback speed was to flip the turntable carefully back into the original position, allowing the speed-controller circuit board to hang free as shown below.

recently-purchased-used-panasonic-sl-jxgmd5u3zcskalhaccgps5fw-3-60.png

Next, play a record that you know well and are able to tell when the speed/pitch is correct (assuming you have an ear for correct pitch, that is!), then at the same time using the small flat-head screwdriver, gently turn the speed adjustment screw(s) to adjust the playback speed up or down until the correct playback speed and pitch is achieved (or at least until it no longer annoys you ;).

Turning the screws clockwise (to the right) will increase the speed/pitch, and anticlockwise (to the left) will decrease the speed/pitch.

NB - Both screws allow for fine pitch control, so if the second is already at maximum speed, you can use the first screw for additional speed.
Step 4 - Reassemble the turntable again

When you're happy with the speed of your turntable, remove the record, the mat again & locking the turntable arm, replace the screw holding the speed-controller circuit in place (as per Step 2) and then finally replace the screws holding the wooden base plate, as per Step 1.
Happy listening!

Turntable out of Tune


it will be the turntable speed not exact
quality turntables have bars all around the circumference and when the speed is correct under a fluro light those bars will appear as stationary or using a strobe light set at 50 or 60 cycles a sec
bars going anticlockwise are too fast and moving forward are too slow
quality tables have a small knob or screw to adjust motor speed

My Jensen JTA 450 is playing LPs too slow even though 33RPM is already set. The songs are slower than usual. Please help me.


The record that you are trying to play maybe a 45rpm recording. Some 45's were released in album size recordings.

How can i fix my jta-460 from playing records slow


Check the RPM switch on the turntable is on the correct speed for the record you want to play. Otherwise it could be a belt problem internally.

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..

Speeds up and Slows down on it's own.


since you have a direct dirve, your motor speed control circuitry is likely failing. The only other chance is some dried up grease dragging on the platter and thus the motor but this is unlikely un such a young turntable.
It will probably be cheaper to replace than to repair this problem...
