My turntable runs fast. At the 33 1/3 selection speed, it actually runs at 34 1/2. There must be a way to adjust that speed. Can you help? Tks, Tom

There are generally two ways the speed of a turntable is set. Firstly in the power supply section, you might find two presets one for 45 and one for 33. These are adjusted by placing a screwdriver in them. The other way is by presets in the bottom of the motor. This generally only applies to the 9 to 12 volt motor types used mostly on belt drive turntables.

33 Records are playing a bit too fast on my Wockoder Record Player... Is there any way to fix this?


Lots of quality turntables have a speed checker and a limited amount of speed adjustment.

Many ordinary record decks use a synchronous motor, the speed of which is regulated by the Hz of the mains supply and with mostly fixed gear ratios it is impossible for them to run faster - slower is the usual problem.

I expect there will be types driven by a dc motor and regulated by a switch mode power supply but I know nothing about them.

I suggest you begin by learning something about your turntable.

How do I adjust the pitch / rotation speed for the turntable of my Emerson NR305TT ?


If the pitch is adjustable then there will be a little round knob to adjust it near the pivot of the turntable tonearm. If not the pitch is not adjustable.

My turntable dont have a belt and is spining to fast on 33/45 can you please help me.


It's a direct drive turntable. That means the platter is actually mounted directly to the motor spindle, and electronics control the speed of the motor -- no belt needed. Most likely the electronic speed regulator has failed or is out of adjustment. Take it to a repair shop and get an estimate on how much it will cost to fix it. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new one than it is to repair an old one.

Otpimus 1000 will play 45 speed but not 33?


That is a belt drive unit. If there is no speed adjustment. You need to take the platter off and check the capstan and belts.

AFTER adjusting the speed setting to 33, all the records are playing too fast, they sound like chipmunks. I tried all three settings and while each speed is different from each other they all seem to be...


If it says your speed setting in on 33, than you have a problem with the speed control inside of the turntable, there is not much you can do in that area. 33 is the slowest speed too, so it seems like it is stuck on 45 or 78. Call Teac if you are still under warranty.

How do you adjust the speed of a Memorex 2601M?


Go inside and look at the main board you should see two/three presets, one for 45 and one for 33 etc.
If not look at the top of the motor for a small hole, it might be covered with a label.

My stanton t50 turntable plays too fast even when the pitch fader is at the slowest speed


You need to calibrate your pitch control. This requires a small precision screwdriver (similar to something you would repair eye glasses with). If you look under the turntable where the pitch control is you will find 2 small holes, 1 marked 33 and 1 marked 45. Turn the turntable on and set the pitch control lever to zero pitch. While the turntable is spinning insert the screw driver into the pitch calibration hole under the turntable and twist the potentiometer back and forth until the turntable pitch is zero (I believe clockwise is faster, counterclockwise is slower as you look up from the bottom of the turntable). This is a fine tune adjustment and will not require much turning to adjust the speed (1 or 2 mm's) either way should start to bring you into zero pitch. The platter speed can be verified by the little dots on the rim of the platter. They should appear stationary in strobe light on the power switch when you are at zero pitch. When you are adjusting the speed you will observe the dots on the platter rim spinning clockwise and then counterclockwise as you adjust the fine tuning. Fine tune the speed until the dots appear stationary and you will be back to zero pitch. You have to adjust the turntable at both speeds 33 and 45 using the correct fine tuning hole under the turntable. My personal experience is it is easiest to do this with 2 people. 1 person to hold the turntable level and running, while the other adjusts the fine tuning. Hope this helps.

Sony PS-LX250H speed problem


I have a different Sony model (PS-LX-150H) that had a similar problem. I hadn't used it in awhile, and then when I did, I noticed the speed problem.

IF your PS-LX250 is like my PS-LX150, there are small speed adjustment screws accessible from the bottom of the unit. On mine, the two adjustment screws were labeled - one for 33rpm, the other for 45 rpm. Basically I just fiddled a bit with them using a very small precision screw driver until I could verify that I had reached 33 rpm (I used a stopwatch and literally counted the number of rotations/minute after making adjustments.)

Now it sounds right!
