Question about Vestax Handy Trax Turntable

Vestax Handy Trax

Hey,
I recently bought a Vestax Handy Trax turntable and I'm looking to upgrade the stylus to get a little better sound out of it. I'm looking for suggestions for a good, moderately priced stylus. Someone told me a Pfanstiehl would be good and cheap, but I'm not sure which model should be used. Thanks in advance for any help.

Vestax Handy Trax Turntable skips toward the end of very LP played. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?


Generally caused by a worn stylus, or incorrect pressure. Increase the weight - pressure, by adjusting the weight on the end of the arm.

Clibrate pitch Vestax PDX d3S


It's a variable , since it's depended on more parts, but just clean it first and gently turn it until the platter moves correct,assuming you
mean to correct the variable resistor(potmeter) . If the value was everywhere the same, then you don't need a variable resistor:)

About 11 months ago I bought an Elliptical upgrade stylus for the PL-990 and it worked great. Recently, it started giving me problems. The left channel would be very distorted and also would fade in and...


Very odd! Sounds like it's not fitting in right. Are you sure that you have the right type of stylus for the cartridge? If in doubt replace the entire cartridge & Stylus. If it still plays up then it's in your amp after that course of action.

My vestax doesn't start at all - is the tonearm damaged?


This is a belt driven turntable. It is very possible that the belt between the motor and platter has either broken or slipped off.

Consult your manual for instructions on how to access and replace the belt. Since it appears it isn't even trying to start, it is probably not just slipping.

If the belt isn't the problem - you could see if you see the drive motor running when activated. If the motor isn't running, there may be a problem with the motor, tone arm or something else.

Hopefully, the belt is the problem. Good luck!

My turntable keeps skiping for no reason, no matter the record. i also made sure the turntable was level. the turntable is a vestax 2000mkII


What is the weight on the stylus? Flip the protective shield down to protect the stylus if available. Tare the tone arm (adjust the counterweight on the back of the arm until the arm floats perfectly level), then hold the counterweight and turn the dial markings to read zero. If you cannot find the recommended mass for the stylus you can use the average weight of 3g. Verify your tone arm is still floating in the center and the arm is perfectly level. Turn the counterweight until the dial indicates the specified weight of the cartridge manufacture specification sheet or you can set it for 3g if you do not have the specification sheet.

Old Philips turntable 312 No sound


I am in a similar situation. I recently discovered that exact model turntable in our storage room. The Philips 312. While looking it over, I noticed the stylus is broken. I was wondering where you purchased yours?

Pitch control center moved


Hello, Mr. Dixon.
I had the same problem and i decided it whit this procedure:

1. Restoring Factory Default Settings



2. Set the PITCH Slider to the center ( 0 ) position.

3. With the CDX-05 in the start mode displaying “no Disk” hold down EJECT and TIME/ENTER and press FILTER. The TEMP display in the LCD reads 0.0 and the procedure is complete.

Good luck!
