Clearly an electrical fault. Could be something to do with the power supply or the speed control circuit, or even the motor itself.
For the manual visit the Gemini website.

SOURCE: Nothing happen when pressing the Start/Stop button.

One ov my decks (same Gemini PT-1000 II) had the same problem. Just open it and clean the micro switches underneath the big buttons. It worked fine for me.

SOURCE: my turntable has stopped spinning when i press

Since it's Direct Drive there's no belt to fall off. There is an electronic brake.

Could your problem have something to do with the Reverse function? Check the L.E.D. Perhaps cycling it will help.


USING THE REVERSE BUTTON:
1. Press the REVERSE (17) button to reverse the rotation of the
PLATTER (2) (the REVERSE LED (17A) will light while in reverse
mode). Press the REVERSE BUTTON a second time to return to
normal play.

SOURCE: my 33 & 45 speed giving problems

HELLO
I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.
ALL THE BEST!

SOURCE: One of my turntables is spinning out of control,

Sounds like the motor control circuitry has a fault, beyond the effects of maintenance adjustments. Quite often, a transistor and perhaps other active electronic components are used to provide a stable calibrated voltage that drives the platter motor. If one of these components fails, the drive motor can be fed the larger unregulated supply voltage; hence, the out of control platter speed. This can happen to belt drive or direct drive turntables. Not so with the old rim drive units. Unless you have technical experience in this area, you should have a stereo type tech look at it. I'd avoid the high end audiophile type repair services. Shop around for an old school regular tech, and the repair should be relatively inexpensive. FYI, I've seen these hi end shops charge $50 or $60 for a turntable belt that should only cost around $20. If you feel the repair estimate is too much, you can find good used turntables at some stereo stores, or even at some thrift shops for a fraction of replacement cost. Depends on your standards.

Why is turntable too slow?


If it's belt drive, the rubber drive belt may be slipping (look inside and see if you can detect slippage).....or if it's gear driven or direct drive.....I'd just let it run for an hour or so and see if it speeds up.

If not, and it's valuable, take it to a repair shop. If it's cheap....scrap it!

Runs fast about 78rpm.


You don't say if it's a belt or direct drive turntable. If it's a belt then something might have caused the belt to slip off it's normal position so it runs fast.
Direct drives are more complicated, but it would seem that the voltage control circuit that feeds the motor is applying to much to it and the therefore is faulty.

Would changing the belt help as my turntable plays too fast.


A lot of turntables have two belt positions on each pulley. One for 33 and one for 45. I would check to make sure the belt hasn't slipped into the 45 position.

Hitachi Ht-354 direct drive. Why can't speed be adjusted?


Direct Drive turntable's have electronically controlled motors with complicated systems to keep them at the right speed.
My guess is that there could be a power supply issue that feeds one of the motors that is sending a much higher voltage to it. But that's just a guess. You might want to look around for the service manual for it to see how the motor is controlled.

The turn table is going round but its playing the record to fast the speed seems wrong


Hello!
are you sure, that your speed selector is on 33.3rpm, not 45?
assume, it's in correct speed settings. do you know, that across the ocean power grid AC frequency is 50hz, in US it's 60hz. Means: ac motor will spin faster, than it should. If you bought this unit abroad, that's where is your problem at. some expensive units have 50/60hz pulleys switch, some not. Especially, if it's DC or direct drive motor. Check your owner's manual for specifications. May be you find an answer. If not, there is a problem with motor's regulator, which is built in(DC motor). Turntable is a belt driven. If you won't find 50/60hz adjustments, take it to repair shop.
Good luck,
Alex.

Platter/motor won't turn


I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.
