    324 has two phono inputs. Wish it had 3.

    Hi all. My neighbor has an Audio Technica ATLP120 that is acting strangely. When turned on, the platter spins very fast, much faster than even 78RPM. Speed is not affected by any of the controls: 33/45/78 RPM buttons, pitch adjustment slider, etc. It is even super fast when set to play in reverse.

    Any advice on what exactly is wrong and how minor/major the repair might be?

    I thought some component in the motor’s power supply might be bad, but I wanted to ask the vinyl nutjobs/experts here for advice.

    Here’s the table:

    hey, it’s a common issue with these tables. The easiest thing to check would be the switch contacts for speed and pitch, spray a tiny amount of deoxit and wiggle them while the table is unplugged and off

    if that doesn’t work then it is likely the motor control board has a bad part. It’s a simple enough diagnosis and fix for most electronics repair shops

    I did a bit of research and it seems like a common problem. The motor and control board may need to be replaced. Basically I don't think it is getting feedback of the proper speed. Some attribute the switches, but I doubt that.
