It Just occurred to me the problems I am having with my beloved T.T. might be self created. I boxed up my T.T. and made a move out west and when I fired her up she struggled at first & then went in reverse direction??? Trying to trouble shoot this issue as follows:
* Initially I had inadvertently plugged in my Project Speed Box ac adaptor into the T.T. it say's output 16v 500ma
* Then tried the right ac adaptor it say's output 15v 550ma

I don't know the real difference here and if I "blew it" but running backwards is new to me Lol {I am not a DJ} It will go in the right direction when switching on/off a few times, but it sounds labored and tight to start.

Even though I boxed the unit up { I thought properly} neglected to secure the 2 transit screws!!!! OK after I kick myself a few times I still wonder which bonehead move is the culprit and/or just a motor failure. I still needs to fix in Nanaimo B.C.

Probably a bad cap somewhere, have you tried without your speedbox?

Could be a motor issue.I have seen that before with some late models Dual turntables and it turned out to be the motors.In these cases, it was caused by the polarity being switched from the power supply. Causes permanent damage.

There is a capacitor inside the table that has either died or has become disconnected. This cap causes a specified phase shift on one of the motor windings so that he motor knows which way to turn. It's an easy fix.
