Question about Pioneer Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have just unearthed my pioneer music system from the loft (PL-Z93) and the turntable doesn't revolve when I pick up the stylus arm. It also needs a stylus but there's not a lot of point if I can't get the turntable working. There is a loose belt under the metal turntable and I'm not sure if it's too old as well as being-possibly- in the wrong place. I hope someone there can help me out. Thanks

If you had it in a hot loft, the belt may not be any good. Good news is they are fairly easy to get.
if you lift the rubber mat off the turntable platter you should find two holes in the platter. If you rotate the platter, you should be able to find the motor capstan that the belt will go on. lift the platter off and you should be able to see where the belt will go on it on the underside. put the belt on the platter, keep tension on it with a finger thru one of the holes, place it back in the base and pull the belt over the capstan. if it's too loose you'll need a new belt. Find an electronics supply store and they should be able to get you one. to save you time, Radio Shack probably can't help you.

I don't know what needle is needed for my pioneer turntable PL-X88Z?


You just need to look at the cartridge and look for the make and model number. Once you have that you can search Google for it and the stylus will also show up.

I have an older QL-45 turntable that needs tone arm adjustment- I don`t know how to set the weight so it doesn`t lower down to album so hard or heavily


I can't find the specific turntable. Who makes it?

This should work with some modifications for your specific controls...

Make a note of the tracking force setting.


Make sure the turntable is level.


Unplug the power to the turntable.

Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.

Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.

Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.

Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.

Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.

Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.

Return the tonearm to its rest.

Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.

I would like to set up my old Pioneer PL-514 turntable and my Pioneer SX-550 sterio reciever to listen to some old LPs. I seem to have lost the instructions and connection diagrams. Could you please...

The upper link is for the turntable, the lower is for the receiver. they want you to create an account tu dowlnload so just create an account with them. In my expierience turntables had hook upeads out the back(wires connected) that would hook to phono in on receiver and speakers would hook to receiver via speaker wires(may not be included) by pos and neg. The speaker wire usually either has a rib or a line or writing on on leg so you can identify which wire you would want to be pos or neg.

Broken stylus arm is it still possible to get another one and is it possible to fit it myself also new stylus needed as well


The stylus should not be a problem. Without knowing the make and model of the turntable, however, there is no way to respond about hte arm. You have listed this question under the Rotel receiver category, can you pelase supply the ,ake and model of the turntable? Also, supply any numbers that appear on the current stylus so I can verify that either the exact one or a similar substitute is available.

Thanks,
Dan

45 and 33 sound slow


Here's a procedure for setting the tonearm...

Look up the recommended tracking force for your cartridge/stylus.

Unplug the power to the turntable and place it on a perfectly level surface.

Set the Tracking Force and AntiSkating to 0.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter Clockwise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
If you don't have a Stylus Tracking Force Gauge. Dial in the prescribed tracking force and a corresponding anti-skate reading. Play records.

Pioneer PL-670 record rejects continually


Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.

My turn table is and old one my needle is broken would i beable to get a new arm for it


With a model number and the brand of your turntable I could probably find what you need with that information. Without that information there is no way to find the right parts.

I have been fixing turntables for over 17 years and have only needed to replace the arm on 2 or 3 of them in that time. It is very unlikely that you would need the arm replaced. The arm is a little more difficult to find for some turntables, but it is not impossible.

Finding the stylus, and/or cartridge with the stylus is not too much of a problem.

Just supply the needed information and I will take care of it for you.

Motor for pioneer Pl 120 turntable


There are only three possibilities:
1) Find a scrap unit somewhere and salvage the motor.
2) Find an old Pioneer dealer that still has old stock lying around.
3) Get lucky and find one on Ebay.
