The Play button controls speed of play back. If you hold the button two long it changes the speed. Press Play and then release and press again until the speed you are looking for is obtained. Be careful not to push the play button mulitple times once it is correct.

My Gemini TT 02 gets stuck at 45 RPM. To get back to 33 you have to turn off and on again. Also the pitch is wildly out by about +7. Is there any way I can repair this?


Your terminology confuses.

Point 1. Why to you say, "Stuck?" Does it not make sense as a possiblity that the designers sought to prevent rotaton speed from being changed mid playback, especially on, say, an LP (long play) album with different side (stereo instead of 45 monaural) grooving. What would be the imperative of changing record speed in that manner...only one record type will play at a time. If changer, only one type record seriies can be played, all at the same speed.

Point 2. ...about "pitch...wildly out by about +7.

First, what are you meaning by pitch and by + (not -) 7. Since there is, to my knowlege, no record spin criterion known as pitch, are you referring to spin speed; hence to playback sound frequency, whether steady state or variable? If there is no user control of platter rotation speed on your unitn there would be little you can do other than to ensure all parts above and below platter are running smoothly with no drag or interference...possibly even lightening the record load on the platter, if a changer; and making sure records are clean to prevent slippage by washing with water or soap and water and air drying--avoid label. If your turntable is optically speed controlled (by timing marks on platter rim) those are typically adjustable to hasten or slow platter speed and therefore playback frequency pitch to your liking. "Wild variation" could reflect mechanical impedance as indicated above. Also check for record warping by trying known true record playback. Finallly, wild variation could be indicator of platter motor end of life cycle. Start pricing a motor if nothing helps.

I still don't follow the significance of the speculative(?) 7. Please explain if possible.

Slow playback after recording.


Quality is definitely a factor here. Set tape speed to SP. Standard Play. It uses the most tape, and use a newer tape if possible.

You can also try converting to a newer format like MP4. This is the new standard for web videos. Older codecs might be an issue.

I have recently bought a philips pocket memo, executive 396. I t seem to play back at twice the normal speed. You can record and this can be heard at normal speed but the reels are turning faster than you...


Hi victorjdambr

You do not say which Model or type (analogue or digital) of Philips Pocket Memo you have.

For further information, click on your model here and then download the associated instruction manual in PDF Format (which can be viewed using Adobe Reader):

http://www.dictation.philips.com/index.php?id=56&CC=IE

Many Voice Recorders can play back at variable speed and have a sliding switch that alters the playback speed. If yours is a Digital Model, you can refer to the Playback Speed Settings in the appropriate manual for your Model (see, for example page 17 of the PDF manual for Model number 9375).

Look carefully for this Playback Speed Control and use it to adjust the Playback Speed.

If yours is an Analogue Model, pay attention in the manual to the Playback and Fast Forward Settings (for example, point number 8 on page 4 of the manual for the 388/488 Model, which describes the 4-Position Switch with both Playback and Fast Forward with Listen-in Control Settings).

I hope this helps.

SLOW DOWN PLAYBACK MODE


You cannot play SVHS tapes on a standard VHS machine. Your solution is to either:
1. Buy an SVHS Home unit (not a great idea)
2. Use regular VHSC tapes in your camcorder (these will playback fine in your existing home unit).
3. Hook your camcorder directly into your TV and use the camera as a playback device.

I have a canon SD 580. When I playback the video clip it's always in fast forward mode and I can't play it normal speed. Any help?


Make sure you are shooting your movies in "Standard" mode. If you have the mode set to something else, especially "Time Lapse", the playback may not match 'natural' motion.

In any case, you can control the speed of the playback. When you first enter the movie playback mode, there should be a movie control bar along the bottom of the LCD. Instead of the "Play" button, select the "Slow Motion Playback" button (single arrow with single bar next to the normal Play button), and control the speed with the left or right arrows on the multi-controller.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

Problem with my vcr Hitachi VT-MX 848E(AU) G-code


What speed are you recording at? VCR's with more than 2 heads use different heads at different speeds. Try recording at all speeds and see it that makes a diference on playback.
