I have (now) a GemSound BJL-1150. The problem I'm having is that the 45 rotation is quite slow and is noticeable in playing. The 33 seems to be fine though. I checked the belt and it's still in working order. Any ideas?

How's the torque? Does it seem like the belt is slipping?

Is the speed-change done with pulleys, or electronically? If the different speeds use different pulleys, you can try cleaning the 45RPM pulley or try changing the belt. If the same pulley is used for both speeds, I'd assume the belt is good.

If there's no mechanical difference with the two speeds, or if you don't think the belt is slipping, then you've got a problem in the electronics. If it's in the electronics, it's probably not worth the cost of getting it repaired. sad.gif You could buy a used one and steal the PC board out of it... But, if you buy a working-used one, you could just use that one. biggrin.gif
