A little problem.
« on: July 14, 2021, 11:47:55 PM »
I accidentally dropped my computer on my record player and now the record player goes slower. What should I do?

What kind of record player is it and where did it hit?

If it was on the platter or the tonearm assembly, it may have dented a critical component. If it was on the housing, it shouldn’t be too bad.

If the platter is still level while spinning, could look into making sure the belt isn’t loose (if it is a belt drive), spindle is lubricated etc. There should be a speed adjustment knob somewhere.

It's a Jensen JTA 230 R, and it hit on the dust cover.

I looked up the model turntable....is this a portable one with built in speakers? That's the only thing that's coming up with that brand and model number. Reading about the turntable, it looks like you just knocked the pitch control off speed. According to the description, the pitch control is on the front of the turntable. Adjust that back to normal and you should be good to go :)

This was originally high pitched, even when I didn't mess with the knob that adjusts the pitch. Now it just smacked it back to a lower speed.

Sounds like a defective product if it was messed up from day 1. If you just bought it recently, i'd return it for a new one. If not, then i'd just buy a new one.

It wasn't defective for me, it played records fine.

Time. I just waited and it fixed automatically by itself. It's now back at it's normal speed.
