Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a brand-new ITUIT-201 USB turntable with a wobbly platter (slight wobble at lower speeds, and very noticable at higher speeds). This causes the record to spin unevenly, and the needle slides irregularly. I am not sure if this is an easy problem that I can fix, or if some part is faulty and needs repair/a new part?

Sometimes you can push down on the platter high side to bend it gently to get it to turn level. Being brand new, you can also return the unit for repair or replacement at no cost. The cost of these things does not justify putting up with defects like this. Good luck!

    Thank you! Pressing down on the platter helps somewhat, but doesn't fix the platter completely. I will probably take it in for repair or replacement. Thanks for getting back to me!

I just got this turntable, and the platter has a wobble.


First check that the adjusting screws that stop the turntable moving about during transport are fully open.
Lift the turntable matt and move the platter by hand. You should be able to see that everything is OK or anything that looks odd. If you still can't see anything wrong remove the platter. First make a note of the belt fits. Take photo's if it looks complicated.
The platter will be fixed from the spindle. It might have a horseshoe clip holding it. They are tricky to get off, but try. If the spindle has a cover, remove it. If it is glued you can force it off. You can re-glue with Bostick later.
Examine the platter to see if it is bent!

The plate on my numark tt USB is wobbiling


I find it hard to believe some of these answers. If the platter is wobbling, if you remove the platter, you'll find the spindle the platter rotates on. That will probably be loose. At the bottom of the spindle bearing, you will find a nut. Tighten that, and you should be in business. If you have further questions please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there.

If you only listen, take a loke at the rega and pro-ject sites.....

Wobbly turntable

Dear Holm,
you might lubricate, the motor, and pin where the platter is turning upon
It's easy to remove the platter by lifting it upwards,
If the platter is wobbely, maybe the pin is not good mounted to the recordplayer.
good luck,

If you take the platter off you may find a rubber "idler wheel" that rides on the inside rim of the platter. It may be worn or glazed over and hardened. Might try cleaning with denatured alcohol. If that doesnt work you may need a new idler wheel. West Tech Services is a place that comes to mind that may carry what you need.

Loose / wobbly platter?


This is a common problem. If you have another 1200 turntable, switch out the platters and see if that fixes the problem. Usually, the problem does not carry over.

There is nothing to screw or tighten. You can install a new SPINDLE - and it should fix it. But might not be necessary if you just swap your platters out.

Good luck!

Platter or motor or what?


Been seeing a lot of problems like this on the newer decks. if the lights instead of moving smoothly are moving a bit, then stopping a little, then moving a bit more. or just wobbling a little bit usually has something to do with the motors... I have also just had to have mine replaced to was having the same problem.... expensive
