Records playing too fast - getting a chipmunk sound.
I accidentally closed the lid on the arm, thinking the arm had already been secured. Since then, playing multiple different records, the record will play normally and then speed up every few seconds. This results in an Alvin & The Chipmunks-esque sound. I stopped playing records on it after trying a couple to make sure this was happening consistently, not wanting to permanently damage any of my records.
Is this a problem with the arm directly or should I replace the needle?
Is this a good question?
