Try changing out the capacitor on the underside of the platter. They will lose their rated value over time.......
The schematic shows a 1000 volt rating. I have three that I am referbing and all of them came from Pioneer with a 450 volt CAP.
Try replace it with one that is rated at least 450 volts.
Also - the closer the tolerance the better. See if you can find one that has a K rating, meaning it is +- 10%. The M rated ones are +-20%.

    You can also put some electrical tape around the rim of the platter where the belt rides. Just do one layer at a time. Do not stretch the tape when you put it on. Slightly overlap the tape then use a razor blade cut through both layers and remove the excess so the tape is completely level.

    One other thing you can do is put some electrical tape on the underside of the platter where the belt runs. Cut the end of the tape so it is a clean cut. Put a layer of tape on the surface being careful not to stretch it. Overlap the tape slightly. Use a razor blade to cut the tape where the overlap is. Then remove the two small pieces of the tape ends. This will give you a smooth layer of tape. Putting the tape on gives the belt a slightly further distance to travel which slows the belts revolution. If a single layer is not enough, add however many layers that it takes to get the platter to the correct speed.

How do I level my pioneer pl-50 turntable platter


When you removed the platter were there a couple of brass or copper washers around the spindle? If not you could try and find a couple to lift platter. Also check for wobble in the platter new ones can be had. There are clubs you may have to join on facebook that will help you one is Vintage HiFi and stereo mostly a bragging site but very helpful with links to others. that is where I found help with my Pioneer turn tables, also Ebay is where I found parts bought a PL518 sold for parts to fix the two I had.

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 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.

This turntable goes to fast


I am sure you meant "TOO" fast...please be more specific. Remember, we vannot see your turntable from here, so "this turntable" doesn't help us much.
I have no idea if there's a pitch adjust on it, if it's belt or direct drive, DC servo or stepper controlled, nothing. You need to tell us that "My turntable model X by company Y is turning Z% too fast" filling in for x, y and z. if it sounds like it's just a little fast, z might be 5%. if it's going twice the speed it should, then z might be 100% - give a best estimate for Z but be accurate with everything else.

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.

Pioneer PL-300 Turntable plays records too slow


i think it is a belt driver table. you can find a replacement belt maybe. but if it is servo controlled motor driven then adjustments to sped setting has to be done.

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.

Pioneer turntable Pl-560 and Pioneer Receiver VSX-D409


No phono inputs?? You will need a phono to line level preamp to use aux input.
