TT200 turntable cannot maintain rotation speed

I have a 200 that I owned and used heavily for 7-8 years at all 3 rpms. It started having a problem maintaining proper rotation speed. After a short time, iIt would slow down to the point where the record was no longer spinning near the speed set. Could not find a solution other than a little WD-40, which gave me a few more minutes.

Yesterday I bought a used 200 from Guitar Center. Plugged it in to my old cables and it seemed to work fine. Then it slowed down. So I thought it could be a power issue and tried swapping plugs and outlets. Same slowdown.

So the question is am I not providing enough power for the turntables? There is nothing new added to the circuit where I draw power. In fact a few things were removed. I have used heavier power drawing devices on the circuit before without an issue. I am out of ideas and not going to pay to repair the motor, I can replace it cheaper than the repair.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. it's a possibility it may be a power issue with the circuitry in the building the turntable is being used in. Have you tried using your TT200 in another building, and do you experience the same symptom? This will help to confirm.

    If you do experience the same issue, it's likely the fault would be with the motor and your turntable would need to be serviced.
