All my records are playing in too low pitch?

The turntable is at the correct speed and there is not dirt on the needle.

    How do you know that the speed of the turntable is correct? Have you checked it with a strobe disc? There might even be a strobe disc built in to the side of the turntable.

    Note possible inaccurate indication or speed if the turntable was built for sale in a 60 hz country (Japan and USA) and you are using it in a 50 hz area such as Britain or Europe.  Buy a strobe disc locally to check under local lights.  If it is set up with the wrong hz (said as 'Hertz') you will have to get the deck modified.

    Are you aware if the music feels too slow compared with how you hear it online or on TV or radio?  The feel of music just a few beats per minute slower is quite a lot different.

    there is a fault in the speed mechanism inside of the turntable. Or the vinyl record is warped.

    If the pitch is too low then the turntable isn't turning at the right speed - it's turning too slowly.

    It has a drive problem. 


    If you are not technically inclined, 

    take it to an audio repair shop.

    It must be the motor belt. Time to change.

    It is probably spinning too slowly.
