Platter stops when back scratching

I have 4 of the Dz1200 and one of the units seems to need an adjustment it will run at constant adjust pitch with no problem but when hoholding slip mat the platter begins to slow down and stop.  My other 3 units do not have that issue . can this be manualy adjusted. and if so how , if not where can I send for servicing?

    when I scratch or just simply hold the slipmat in one spot, the platter slows down to a stop. The music keeps playing and the scratch is able to be heard, but the platter comes to a stop.

I had same problem, just took mine back and exchanged for new one. however i'm having a similar problem again. i tried polish to make it more slippy, and tried cleaning under grey platter, but now i've made it worse, and i get a clicking sound when my cd's are playing. any technics dealer should be able to get it serviced for you.

Akai x200d reel to reel tape player playback is a bit high pitch,


The capacitor, if you mean the run capacitor, its value is not critical. Probably a dirty contact in the speed switch.

Adjust pitch


Register (free) at Vinyl Engine and download the service manual. The adjustment you need to do seems fairly simple. You will need a turntable strobe disk to get the the speed right, unless you have perfect pitch.

It seems like you need to adjust the pitch control. Try looking at the platter strobe light and seeing if it is at the correct speed. If not adjust the pitch control until you can see the dots align. As for the not returning, your automatic motor may be busted.

The turntable motor might be the problem, if the grease is old it becomes hard causing the turntable to run slow, by your description we can rule that out since you indicate it runs to fast. therefore it is the voltage that powers the motor with a regulator "keeps voltage constant" or the motor itself will be the problem. The pitch control allows a small change in speed when required.

Switches and other controls that permit the user to adjust the speed on the turntable often become erratic due to oxidation of the metal contacts contained therein. Dust and smoke add to the problem. Cleaning the controls with quality electronics-type contact cleaners usually gives years of happy service. The job is best left to someone familiar with the complete assembly since other finite adjustment potentiometers are often employed and located on the internal circuit board.

The treadmill belt is making a noise and feel like it hesitates for a second while I am walking.


If it has a low pitch growling when you start unit then the running belt is too tight and the adjusting bolts need to be backed until the growling noise is lessened or eliminate without the running belt slipping.
If it is the drive belt slipping, the adjustment bolt is underneath the frame so you will need to elevate the treadmill and adjust the bolt until slippage is eliminated without over tightening the drive belt.

Unplug the unit remove the motor shroud inspect the drive belt if the rubber feel slick then my recommendation is to replace the drive belt. Adjusting the drive belt may take care of the problem if you do not need to adjust it too tight. If you choose to do the adjusting and feel you have adjusted the running belt thinking it would resolve the slipping, then back the tension down until it the running belt is slipping then adjust until the slippage is resolved.

If I stand on the belt it stops moving


Unplug unit remove motor shroud so you can see the drive belt, plug in unit then start it you will be able to see whether the drive belt or running is actually causing the problem.If it is the running belt then turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise in equal quarter turn increments until treadbelt stops slipping. NOTE: Be sure to run on treadbelt to ensure that the treadbelt does not slip while under load. Use 1/4" allen wrench
If the drive belt is slipping then to adjust the belt you must loosen the adjusting bolt on the motor frame then hold the motor by hand applied tension to belt then tight bolt you should be able to twist the drive belt no more then 45 degrees if you can repeat adjusting process.

There might be something in the reader that needs to cleaned out. Or the cd reader itself might be damaged. In either case, you'll need professional help.

Panasonic automatic turntable model sl-hm42


I'm having a similar issue - except my panasonic sl-hm42 platter is moving too slow on 33 1/3 settings (don't have any 45's to try). It's a DC model, so I would think there would be some kind of pitch control settings or screws somewhere on it but I can't seem to find them.
Does anyone know if it's possible to adjust the pitch on this model turntable? Thank you!
