Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

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.

Where do the wires go on my pioneer pl-z93


The red and white wire goes into the turntable input on your amp. The power needed is 12Vdc, you should have the power brick that comes with the unit.

You can find these cheaply. Will need at least 1 amp, but no harm giving it 2 or more. Maybe you can locate the motor's information

From what I can see of the poor quality images of this model on Google it looks to me like the cartridge is screwed into the head.

How can i use a pioneer PL-Z93 turntable with a pioneer A-717 amp?


Hi, there is no reason for the turntable not to work with your amp. This amp has 2 phono inputs. Moving magnet and moving coil. Your tt likely has a moving magnet cartridge fitted so connect via that input. Cheers John. styluscity.com

My PL120 turntable purchase new skips often and will hardly work with music played at a loud volume


The first problem could be the stylus needs cleaning. Please shine some light on the stylus ( needle ) and see if it has picked up dirt from the record groove. This will prevent the stylus from tracking the song properly. Clean using a fine brush in the direction in which the stylus passes the record groove i.e from back of the pick up arm to front- NEVER SIDEWAYS.
Next check the counterweight adjustment at the back of the Pick up arm. The tracking force should be between 1.5 to 3 grams depending on the brand of the cartridge. What ever be the chosen weight the antiskating knob should also be set to the same number.
The skipping can also be because of heavy bass vibration traveling up the body of the Turntable.Good turntables have a floating suspension to prevent this. The tuntable platter will be suspended on springs.You can place it on a rubber Matt or move it away from the speakers ,esp: sub woofers.

Yes first check is that the Gnd wire from your turntable is connected to the Gnd (ground) post at the back of your amplifier with a good clean tight connection.
If the problem persists, check ALL your hi-fi components mains plugs for earth connections including your turntable, then remove the earth connections on all but one component so that you are left with only item earthed.
What does sometimes cause problems is if 2 or more hi-fi separates are earthed and connected to each other the earth cables along with the hi-fi interconnects form an inductive loop that picks up interferance such as mains hum etc.
