Question about Sony PS-LX250H Turntable

1 Answer

SONY PS LX300H turntable works only one channel at a time

I just sent my parents an SONY PSLX300H TURNTABLE that I bought on EBay. When they plug in the right channel it works. If they plug in just the left channel it works. But if they plug in both, thge sound disappears. As far as I can tell (over the phone) they are doing everything right and it's not the amp. Is there some turntable specific issue here that I'm not thinking about?

    Ditto. I have problems playing mine in stereo. Each speaker works separately but not together.

This sounds suspiciously like the wiring of the cartridge is wrong or something is shorted together. The cause should be visible.

Taking special care to NOT touch the stylus itself in this operation:

Turn the locking collar and remove the cartridge assembly in its shell from the tonearm.

Flip the assembly over and examine the four wires under a magnifying glass for disconnections, kinks, crimps, or metal-to-metal contact between any of them. They should each attach to a pin exiting straight out from the cartridge.

The wires are also color coded as are the terminals. If they're wrong you could have various sonic malfunctions.

Correcting miswires is delicate and I would recommend taking the turntable and stylus to a pro for that part.

Connect the RCA phono plug wires usually red and white wires with plugs to a receiver or amplifier in the back of it to phono in. New receivers will not work unless you have a phono preamp. Best to buy a vintage stereo receiver or amplifier with the correct connections. Make sure you connect the ground wire which is usually a small black wire coming from the turntable to an receiver or amplifier. Turn the stereo receiver on phono. Connect it to any screw attached to metal on back or look for a ground screw. If you do not attach it it will hum.

Sony ps-lx250H loud buzzing sound


That is where the problem is, get a long insulated wire, bare both ends and attach one end to the turntable and the ground screw of the amp, use one screw on the chassis on the turntable and bare the metal for good ground connection.

Have you though of using a pre-amp? You'll probably need to go turntable --> pre-amp --> soundcard input to get acceptable sound

What size belt does a Sony PS-LX300H USB turntable use?


These replacement parts are purchased for the model turntable that they are to be installed in. They are not generic and are not bought by "size" as say a fan belt for a car would be. I googled "Sony PS-LX300H Belt" and got:

Sony PS-LX300USB Turntable, one channel not working


Have you tried swopping over the output leads from the turntable to the amp (normally one red and one white phono plug) so they are in each others socket? If you do this and you still get no sound from the right channel it is almost certain to be a faulty amp,or speaker.
If you swop and get no sound from the LEFT channel it is could be either a faulty lead or cartridge.

Sony ps-lx2 turntable clicks when spinning


It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.

If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.
