Vestax pdx 2000 mkII

After only 2 months of usage on my turntable the fuse blew out. I replaced it and it just blew out again. Could the motor have a short in it or am i not getting the right sized fuse? I bought 2 turntables and the other one works perfect. please help!!!!

You should check the fuse on the other turntable to get the correct size, if it persists in blowing you should realy send it back because if you were to use a larger fuse you run the risk of blowing something in the deck, i know its not a great help but its all i can offer

SOURCE: vestax pdx 2000 motor problem

This is a really common fault with this model of TT. I've just repaired a pair of them with the same problem.

You need to remove the bottom cover of the deck then take the round cover off the bottom of the motor assembly. Be really careful with that, delicate sensitive stuff inside. Once you remove the screws use a small flat blade screwdriver to lift it free of the rubbery glue that seals and holds it in place.


Once removed, in the centre of that cover is a small black rubber cirlce about 6mm in diameter that the shaft of the motor rotates on. The problem causing all of that erratic platter movement is with this small black circle.

The solution I found was to use double sided tape to hold this part in place. This serves two purposes. First, to stop the part from moving off its required location, Secondly, to raise the part up slightly from the bracket that it sits on. Layer the double sided tape up so its the around the same thickness as the small black rubber circle. Then place the black cirlcle into its original location bedding it firmly into the tape.

A tiny small dolop of grease on the end of the motor shaft. Replace the motor and bottom covers. Bingo! The decks a-go-go!

Happy mixing!

SOURCE: I have problem with tonearm on my vestax pdx 2000

I'd be checking the weight and height settings of the tonearm. Heres a link to the manual for the deck. There's instructions in there about how to setup up the tonearm properly. Don't be afraid to experiment with it. Just remember, too much weight will wear out your vinyl really quickly. Not enough weight will sound like **** and skip easily. Have fun!

Hi, have been given a vestax pdx 2300 turntable and the motor is acting crazy, do i replace motor or is it an internal roblem?


Is there a speed control switch? UNPLUG and try spraying contact cleaner into the speed control. IF that doesn't solve it, then back to the manufacturer.

I carnt remove the turntable platter can anyone help


The platter needs a drop of oil as the platter and motor shaft is a machined fit, Via brass upside down v as the platter will be reversed ie: a A WITH NO LINE . You can place two plastic wedge shaped blocks ,one on each side of the platter with even pressure and work up.

Re: Power Problem


More than likely the power transformer fried. If so, it will need to be replaced. You might also want to check the fuse. Some of the PDX units have fuses on the rear (where the RCA cables connect)... some don't. I've also seen some that have a fuse on the inside of the turntable, underneath the turntable platter... some don't. If your's has a fuse, see if it has burned out. If so, just replace.

If not, then the only other thing that would affect power on the PDX is the power transformer, and only a qualified service tech should replace this for you.

Vestax pdx-2000mkiipro keeps blowing internal fuses


You have a short in your unit, and you will need professional assistance in determining the cause. You might also want to try a different outlet. If it fails, then you'll need to bring it to a service center for repair.
