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

possibly your capstan needs cleaning? remove the platter and locate the capstan which is usually made of brass? if it is dirty, ie; black use cotton balls and neat alcohol (spirits ) to clean it. also, consider changing the belt as it may have stretched?

Why is this turntable running slow?


It depends which type of turntable it is. If a belt one then change the belt, make certain you make a note of how the belt fits before removing it.

Direct drive turntables are more difficult. As it could be any number of faulty parts that cause it.
A build up of grease or dirt in any type of deck can slow the speed down.

A faulty motor on both types of deck will also cause it.

Grundig 4400 / Audio Techinca T4P Turntable spins at 35 RPM instead of 33 RPM


I think you mean 45 rpm?
It sounds like you have got the belt in the wrong position. Try adjusting the position of the belt by experiment. Or you could look up the correct way to set up the belt.

What's the correct way to use the strobe light to set turntable speed?


The turntable may have a pattern on the edge of the turntable. If not you need a turntable strobe disk that you place on the turntable like a record. The pattern on the disk or on the edge of the turntable will be marked for 50 Hz or 60 Hz frequency.
The strobe marks on the disk or on the turntable are for 33 RPM and 45 RPM and for both 50 & 60 Hz mains frequency.
To adjust the turntable for the correct RPM, turn on the strobe light and the turntable set it to 33 RPM and shine the strobe light on these marks and adjust the speed setting until the 33 RPM marks appear steady and not moving. You may want to check it for 45 RPM as well.
Make sure you use the correct mains frequency marks ie. the 50 or 60 Hz that your electricity system uses.

Thomas Pacconi Model TPC-MSE-800 turntable runs slugglish. 78 runs fine but 45 or 33 runs slow. I removed belt cleaned it and platter. I put a drop on oil still same problem. Do I need a new belt? This is...


Pjam,
Had the same problem & checked around on the net. Several people tried replacing the belt, but it had no effect. Spoke w/ several repair shops around the country and they concur with what I'd read on the net - bad motors. 3 or 4 repair/supply shops told me getting a motor would be impossible. Since I only listen to 33-1/3 LP's, I messed around w/ it a little and found a solution. Take the turntable out of the unit & you will find a small circuit board attached to the bottom. On that board is a small square blue fixture w/ a white circular "dial" in the middle (has grooves to accept a small straight blade or a phillips screw driver). This controls the voltage to the motor, which in turn controls the motor RPM's. If you set the selector switch to 78, you can experiment /w turning that white circular "dial" to slow the motor down. It isn't very hard to get the speed set properly. The down side is that you will only be able to play 33-1/3 LP's, but they are probably the most common anyways. I assume you could do the same to set the speed for a 45, rather than a 33-1/3. Down side is that you will only be able to play 1 size LP on the 78 speed setting, but it's an easy adjustment that can keep an otherwise in-op turntable functioning. Good luck!

My turntable is running slow!..and i just bought this turntable brand new a couple weeks ago...please help me.


Check the +10 / -10 slider too make sure it's not set to -10; adjust it towards +10 to the pitch / tone desired. Check the belt to make sure it is not loose. A loose belt will slip and turn the record slower than the recommended 33 or 45 RPM. Have a look at the YouTube video for correct set up if you're still having problems.

Hi!
Make shure that is a 50Hz turntable. If you connect a 60 Hz turntable in a 50 Hz system, the result is aprox 28 RPM in the 33 RPM position/

Thomas Pacconi turntable turns too slow


My older Thomas Pacconi turntable was also turning too slowly. Rather than replacing the belt or needle, I tried using an eye glass repair screwdriver to alter the trimmers inside the motor. But the changes didn't take. Then I tried trimming the power to the motor using the larger trimpot next to the motor with the motor itself set to the 78 rpm setting. But the adjustments to the trimmer didn't get the platter to spin slow enough - it wouldn't play an LP. To get the speed down further I replaced the 1K trimmer with a 10K trimmer I picked up for a buck at Radio Shack and successfully adjusted the turntable down to down to 33 1/3 rpm usage. All that was needed was a soldering iron and a 10K trimpot to get the job done.

JVC Turntable model AL A1 BKX , need to know how to adjust speed


I have just fixed this problem on my Aiwa PX3800 with improvisation.
The platter was rotating too slowly, I didn't know how much too slow only that the records sounded wrong.
I imagined the belt, motor and platter as a bicycle gear and so simply increased the gear... I achieved this by winding a thin strip of a electrical insulation tape around the motor head to increase it's radius (like changing up to a larger front cog on a bicycle gear).
I could then time the rotations and remove a layer or two of the tape accordingly until I have achieved a perfect 45rpm. 33 is still way out but I only listen to 45s!
Be sure to trim excess tape from the motor head with a craft knife/scalpel or it'll stick to the platter.
Poor man fix up.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed


1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.

or

2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.

:).
