Dear Members,

I do have a Philips India 242 turntable.

It is working well but now a days a problem I am facing that while its playing LPs the speed goes down suddenly. I stop the motor then restart it and the speed becomes correct. After some time again speed drops.

From where the problem arises?

Waiting for your suggestions.

It's a belt drive turntable. Did you check the belt hadn't been stretched?

I haven't checked yet the belt. Should I check it first?

Dear Subhabrata Dutta,

Have a look at
which is an Indian site/forum where "musiklava79" offers for free a pdf-version of the manual.
The 242 (15GA242) was (only?) made and sold in India. Good looking turntable!
Good luck!


P.S. This forum (NFOR) does not deal with transistor apparatus whilst I fear the speedregulation of the 242 is with transistors.
A proper transistorforum is the Nederlands Transistorforum: .
There is also a very good site on turntables. The Nederlands Grammofoon Genootschap: .

NGG-info corrected by moderators. Thanks to Peter1952.

Even een correctie: De site van het Nederlands Grammofoon Genootschap is GEEN forum. Het is een informatieve site waar veel gegevens van grammofoons op staan. Wel bestaat de mogelijkheid om technische vragen te stellen.
