Question about Vestax Pdx2000 Direct Drive Turntable System
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 the cover 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!
