  • Off center LP hole

    I have this LP



    and it does this



    and the pitch of the record is weird, it goes up and down.

    How can I fix this?

        I've done it with 45s, where you take the centre from a donor 45, dink the centre from the wonky one, line it up on your turntable so it is even, and then place the donor centre on your spindle, mark it up and fix it in/ tape it in however you wish. Brought a couple of non-players back to life. Lps? Never tried it. I don't know how you would find the centre of spin. I'm sure someone on here has tried it. I'm as interested as you to find out.

          Get a drill, put another LP with a centre hole in the right place on top of your off centre one and use as a guide to drill a new hole.

            Would I be right in thinking the hole IS in the centre, but the lp is just pressed slightly off?

                    It looks like it might be so, the hole is actually in the centre as far as I can see. I think this may just be a bad pressing, or it could be warped in a really bizarre way

                      Genius. I was thinking of this method, which still might come in useful if you only own one record.

                        Why so complicated when you can use a ruler once to find the centre. Place the ruler on the record and adjust up/down until on the widest part of the record, find the middle of the ruler and that's where your hole goes.
