SOURCE: slow speed

Hi,

What model do you have?

It could be a few things. It may be as simple as an adjustment to the pitch control (if your table has one), it could be the pitch control itself or something more serious.

Is it Belt-driven or Direct drive?

SOURCE: Teac P-988 Everything sounds slow/warped

not passing the "wow and flutter" specs, eh?
The most common cause of this is a loose or defective belt. An inferior belt will have varying thicknesses along it's length. When it hits a skinny part, it will slow slightly. When it hits the thick part, it will speed slightly. Overall effect is that the record sounds warped.

SOURCE: Speed is too slow. Does the belt stretch over time

Yes belts do stretch over time, often you will get wow and flutter too with it. Replacing the belt could solve it. If it's old anyway it could do with replacing. Please make a note of how it fits before removing it. Belts are measured in MM (diameter), but with TT belts you need to measure the width.

SOURCE: The speed adjuster on my

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.

Hi, I have a Teac P-988 and it doesn't play very loudly


If you cannot get it to amplify then your problem is more than likely in the stylus or arm down pressure. Give that a try and if that is not it post more information on what you have tried.

Turntable slows down and stops


If it has a belt drive, the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced.

My audio-technica PL50 plays 45s at the wrong speed.


believe it or not not it probably doesn`t even play your lp`s at the right speed? Its probably because your drive belt has actually stretched? rubber belts do wear and maybe seek out a replacement drive belt?

try this company?

Turntable not turning to play record............. power on............ please help my email address - diatmesa@aol.com


This could be many things like the following>

If its a direct drive turntable the motor could be "blown",
or motor electonic speed controller burnt out.
If its a belt drive turntable then the belt could be broken
or stretched and is slipping, or the belt can have dropped of a drive pullety.
Also there are speed control mechanisms to adjust the final speed of the
turntable to the recorded speed of the record like 331/3rpm, 45rpm 75rpm
These speed reducing mechanisims can slip and cause the turntable not to turn..
There are also other mechanical bits that slide and push against each other,
and these can get sticky and the friction increases so much that the power
from the motor drive causes the belts to slip, so you need to identify if a
friction problem exists as well..

If you are carefull you can look your self and find out which one of the above it is.

Be warned there are lethal voltages inside the turntable which can kill you....
so please dont have the power on when making any inspection or adjustments.

Cheers From YUBEUT..
