Speed issues with SL-Q5

Post by Djehrenr » 22 Sep 2019 15:00

First time posting here, Just picked up a SL-Q5 and I’m having an issue with pitch. I check both manuals and didn’t see anything that looked obvious on how to adjust.

Is there an adjustment or something that should be cleaned and re-greased. I didn’t want to start taking it apart until I knew what to look for.

Most Technics DDs have a board inside with two pots, on for 33 and one for 45. So with the mains unplugged usually cleaning these and a twiddle and your pitch can be set . :D
