Question about Teac SL-A100 Turntable
SOURCE: only spinning at 1 speed
This is a high dollar turntable. If you want, take the screws out, open it up and check that the direct drive speed gear is in place. Other than that I would take it to a repair shop. There's one guy on ebay selling a new one for $500.00 http://cgi.ebay.com/Technics-SL-1200MK2-Manual-Direct-Drive-Turntable-New_W0QQitemZ320132536688QQihZ011QQcategoryZ64448QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

This sounds like a motor speed control problem. It could be either the motor itself or an electronic fault. So unless you know a bit about electronics and know how to use a soldering iron etc, then the answer to your question is no.

Go inside and look at the main board you should see two/three presets, one for 45 and one for 33 etc.
If not look at the top of the motor for a small hole, it might be covered with a label.

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..

That selector is basically a small switch that has a blade inside it that slides and makes a contact between some pins: depending on which pins are connected the motor spins faster or slower.
In your case that switch has failed and the contacts are made at random so the motor spins wrongly. To fix it you must replace the switch, a simple electronics job, but one that requires at least a basic experience in electronics and a minimum of tools: a soldering iron, a solder pump and some paste.
If you don't posses all of them you will have to take it to a repair shop - luckily it will be a cheap fix, no more than $50.
